We had viewed the hotel online and the pics did not do it justice. It is a beautiful historic hotel with a very welcoming vibe as soon as you enter the door. We were on a whirlwind trip through Colorado so we were only able to stay one night. The hotel was very clean and the staff was super helpful. Our room overlooked the main road in town and was beautiful at night. If you are worried about street noise they have white noise machines in the room. We did not experience any noise issues. The bed was very comfy and there are lots of extra blankets in the room if you need them. The bathroom floors are heated which is a great touch! We were there in the fall so skiing was not an option for us but there were lots of shops and eateries. The Steaming Bean coffee shop and the Brown Dog Pizza are must trys. They are both within walking distance.
