The hotel rooms are pretty roomy and beds are comfortable. This is a pet friendly hotel which is a good option if anyone wants to bring their furry kids along on vacation. The outdoor heated pool and hot tub was nice especially after a day riding on the mountain. The so called ski-in ski-out isn’t what we expected, it’s behind the pool/hot tub gated area and about 50-60 steps to the ‘Intertwine’ slope. However that part of the slope is really flat and narrow. I’d say it’s about 1 min or so walk to where the slope decline to the Strawberry base area, which wasn’t so bad; but it’s def easier if you are skier using the poles ;) The valet parking staffs were very nice and friendly during our whole stay which my hubby and I appreciated them. But I didn’t get the same vibe or feel welcoming from the front desk. Not that they were rude, but not ‘genuinely’ friendly from the time we checked-in and a couple times of inquiry/question about the hotel and the mountains actives. Overall an okay stay at this hotel, but won’t be our first choice next year.…
Came to Beaver Creek for a week of skiing solo. Stayed at the Pines Lodge after having done a lot of research, and glad I did. I booked the least expensive room, and it was still a good size and very comfortable. I didn't have much of a view - overlooking the front entrance, but it was still a relatively light space. It also felt very fresh and almost as if it had been recently renovated. I loved the Lather creams and soaps provided. On a nit pick, the shower was ok but could have used more pressure. The room had loads of storage and a set of hooks for coats etc which made keeping the space organized and tidy very easy. There is a mini fridge in the room and I believe you can request a microwave. Two glass bottles for water were provided and kept filled by housekeeping. There is also a water machine in the lobby which dispenses sparkling water and, my favorite, some flavored water which made filling a collapsible water bottle for skiing even better - I particularly like the light lemon/mint version! I'll add more details that I had looked for about the hotel: The heated swimming pool and hot tub were small but more than sufficient. There was a large supply of towels. I never saw anyone in the pool and only twice shared the hot tub with anyone, and each time only one other person. This despite the hotel being pretty fully booked. I looked in on but didn't use the gym and steam room. Both well maintained and equipped, small but I also never saw more than a couple of people there. The boot room was fantastic, with ample room to leave boots to dry and warm over night. I just left my shoes in the room each day, as did others, but there was also a small supply of slipper to change into if preferred. The ski rack outdoors also had plenty of room, and the boot room and ski rack were both on the way out provided you were headed to the skiway to the lifts (rather than to the front door for the shuttle). The outdoor ski rack was secure to the extent that there was a locked gate out to the skiway, so generally you would need a hotel key to get to the rack from the outside, but I still used a ski lock to secure my skis just in case. I didn't see anyone else doing so, though. I didn't use the restaurant. It is independently operated and an expensive and special occassion type of menu. It has a great reputation. I would have tried it one night if I were with family or friends, but didn't find any appeal on my own. Certainly not for a daily restaurant in any event. I think they may have served some breakfast, but I never bothered. One thing to note is that the restaurant takes up a lot of the space which might otherwise have been public space/lobby. As a consequence, the lobby space, while comfortable, is very small, and there are not places to sit that have a view out as the back wall of windows is allocated to the restaurant but also the gym and pool which do have a view). Hot water was set out every afternoon with tea bags and packets of hot cocoa mix or instant apple drink together with plates of chocolate chip cookies. These were nice, but could have been more luxe and better quality drinks (and the cookies disappeared fast!) The ski in/out location of the hotel was variously described in other posts. Here is my perspective/experience: The hotel isn't a true ski out to the extent that there is a ski way/path which will take you to the lifts - you don't just step out right onto a slope nor can you ski to the lift without some skating/walking - there is a gentle uphill part of the path. I didn't find this problematic, however, and it actually provides a nice warm up before skiing. It took less than five minutes to slowly make my way to the Strawberry Express lift, and a few minutes more to cross over the bridge to the Centennial lift - these two options open up most of the mountain. For those who really want to start at Bachelor or Arrowhead or who really don't want to take the short skiway, you can use the free shuttle system, which I found to be very easy and quick - at most waited 10 minutes, although mostly I skiied/skated to the two lifts available (did take the bus/shuttle from Arrowhead at the end of one long ski day so as to avoid having the long traverse back across the mountain to get back to the the hotel - as an aside, I had take Little Brave at the end of that day, thinking it was going to be an easy green and then I could make my way back accross to the hotel after, but Little Brave is a tough and long green with some tight places and that day also some icy patches - I'm a pretty strong skiier but with already tired legs this was not a great end of day run, and I ended up taking the bus and shuttle back to the hotel instead of skiing!) As for the ski in component, it is pretty true that you can ski back to the hotel using Intertwine and then a special couple of paths from there which are pretty well marked if you are looking for them. Take note though that the last little bit is a very short but also very narrow steep which is a little inconvenient as you end up at the skiway path by the hotel. It was ok but not great and a couple of times I just poled/skated back from town instead. I did use the skiway to walk into and back from town several times instead of using the shuttle. This was maximum a 10 minute walk and quite pleasant, although maybe less so if the skiway were icy or slippery with new snow. My usual day was: ski/skate to town (Centennial lift) at around 8am, leave my skis and get a latte at the cafe at the bottom of the escalator (hotel coffee was not great despite both the option of a machine in the room and urns on the floor and I like a really good latte to start the day!) Drink my coffee on one of the couches facing the lift to watch the super eager first chair skiiers lining up, and then stroll over to get my skis on and get on the lift at 8:35 after the line had cleared. Then, skiing until about 3 with a break or two to enjoy sitting in the sun at one of the on mountain dining spots (I mostly ate some energy bars or peanut butter sandwiches I brought with me to avoid so-so and very expensive on mountain meals) Never a problem to find a spot. Then, back to the hotel to the hot tub then shower and civilian clothes to walk back into town to enjoy another relaxing sit down to watch the end of day skiiers for a bit before getting some dinner in one of the casual places in town. Very relaxing. I did go find the much vaunted chef hatted cookie dispensers one afternoon but it wasn't as fun as I had anticipated and they got surrounded by people as soon as they came out with fresh trays. Still, a nice touch. So, all in all, a great week and the the hotel was fantastic. I would definitely stay there again, even if there are other options which are a little more convenient for the lifts - the difference was marginal and the hotel was so lovely and quiet which more than made up for it. By the way, I used the Epic shuttle from Eagle which was fine, but had a very inconvenient schedule back to the airport which would have gotten me there either three hours too early (and prevented me from a final few runs on departure day) or alternatively running for my flight. I took High Mountain Taxi instead and they were great - the price would have been the same/cheaper if I was travelling with at least one other person and they send a mini van capable of holding 6 - same price regardless how many people, and on your schedule. They had great communications and arrived 10 minutes early, got me directly to the airport with a very nice driver and even though it was more expensive to go solo, it was very worth it to be on my own schedule. If two or more travelling together, I would definitely consider them over the shared Epic shuttle in both directions. They had minivans already at the airport I noticed to meet arrivals. …
My wife and I were in Beaver Creek for a ski trip. The location was great, close enough to walk to the village but not right in the middle of everything. We had a king corner room which had incredible views on two sides. Would absolutely stay in this room again! The staff was great, interacted with many staff members at the front desk and bell service and all were very helpful. Side note, the SodaStream water fountain in the lobby is awesome!
We had a fantastic stay. Walk to Village is nice and short. Leighana and all of the staff are super nice, helpful and genuinely happy to see you. Hunter and Austen B. are the best valets we have ever had. We will be going back next year for sure!
excellent staff,amenities. Great hot tub,heated pool and fitness room. 3-5 min walk to lifts. pet friendly. great deal using Epic discount of 20%. Restaurant and bar on site are excellent. will return for another ski trip
Had a very uneven visit here Dec 2022 with 5 and 6 year olds enrolled at the Beaver Creek ski school. Nice room, but all vending machines are sold out of water bottles, broken filtered water station in the lobby, and front desk told us they cannot send us any water bottles or filtered water or anything to the room. No real bar or lodge scene for apres ski. It’s also a good 10 minute walk thru the snow to the BC ski school so it feels a stretch to call it ‘ski in/ski-out.’ Breakfast service in the hotel restaurant very slow. We saw tables getting up and leaving due to slow service. Pool and hot tub are nice, but small. Location is good overall but not sure we see the value.
From the minute we arrived Leighana on the front desk made it clear she wanted us to have the experience of a lifetime. She repeatedly went out of her way to assist and support us. All of the staff were wonderful. The price point of the hotel gives it an advantage of over some of its competitors and it has a relaxed feel without the crowds. The courtesy shuttle buses make access to the village 2minutes away easy.
Cozy hotel right "next" to the Beaver Creek Village, but in the village. So its quiet, relatively reasonable, with large rooms and easy access right to the slopes. Great hot tub. The whole staff treats you with the warmth that this hotel offers! They were totally full of ideas of where to go, what to ski and what to see. Outstanding Restaurant, best in town for sure!
The Pines, in Beaver Creek, likes to advertise that it’s dog-friendly. SOMETIMES, apparently. Last season we came with a dog, but friends who came separately to meet us there were told that dogs were not allowed. This month we came again with the dog, and on returning from the slopes the first day were met by and berated by the manager who said the dog had been barking, tho no other guests had complained. We were told that (in the fine print, apparently) in the contract it was stated that someone would have to be in the room with the pet the entire time, and that did the dog bark while we might be elsewhere for dinner, we would have immediately to return to our room. Disappointed, having stayed there and dined there on many occasions over the past several years, we reviewed our visits: yes, some days it’s ski-in-ski-out, but other days, such as one on this month’s visit, there was no ski-out option, as construction crews had shoveled 3 foot-high piles of ice and snow onto the narrow path. Other days, as one last season, were clearly ski-in, IF one was willing to ski through a foot-deep five-foot-long puddle of water; that ski-in path this year was not traversable. Advice: stay at the Osprey; leave your dog(s) behind. And for the money, dining a few metres from the Pines, and no more expensive, is Splendido, aptly named, and levels above the Pines’ best dining options. Sad.…
Front desk staff not helpful at all - no concierge. Walked in and didn’t know what to do in the area, front desk said they didn’t know either. ??? Went to Grouse Mountain Grill, the only eating option in hotel, family of 5 was $500 and food wasn’t great (seating host was very snooty). Village was walking distance, but hardly anything open in September. Valet parking only, so had to tip every time we needed car. Vending machines didn’t work for beverages and toilets in gym didn’t work. Rooms were great.
