Our stay was perfect. Snowmass Village is so beautiful—and just Aspen in general. The fall foliage was exactly what I wanted to see. We were there the last weekend the gondolas were open before they closed in preparation for the winter season. It was a short little weekend trip for me, my husband, and my 3 year old. It was our first time in Aspen and I think we made the perfect choice to stay at Capitol Peak Lodging. I was worried about this trip since it was our first getaway since the COVID-19 pandemic but when we walked into our room (3417), all the worry went away. The room was spotless. The staff was awesome. This was the only time a hotel/resort I’ve stayed at actually called me the morning of checking in to tell me my room was already ready if I wanted to check in early (11am/12pm). I wish we could have but we were driving a long ways and arrived around 6pm. Okay so back to the room—it had all the amenities we needed—full kitchen (full size fridge, stove, dishwasher). There’s a washer and dryer in the room so that’s a bonus especially when traveling with a toddler. The living room area was very spacious—my son started to feel right at home. The bedroom was a little cramped but it was fine for us overall. There wasn’t good light in there though—it was very dim. The garage parking confused us at first but then we finally caught on and figured out where we needed to go. We got takeout at a few places within Snowmass Village. We walked around the shopping area but it seemed like a lot of stores weren’t open. So that’s something to keep in mind if you’re wanting to visit in fall. Aspen is just a short drive and we went there to grab takeout food as well for our early dinners. Aspen was really busy in the evenings. Also—I didn’t expect this but it’s dark around Aspen. If you have a hard time seeing at night, don’t volunteer to be the driver. Before booking at Capitol Peak Lodge, I kept wondering if it was gonna be better to stay in Aspen instead of Snowmass Village. But once we arrived, I knew right away Capitol Peak Lodge’s location suited our needs better. We didn’t want to be around a lot of people and our son was able to just run around the village without a care in the world. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and I can’t wait until we return again.…
The room was clean and equipped with necessary equipment. There was a kitchenette and a washer and dryer available in unit. The hot tub was relaxing as well. Location was great and everything was accessible!
It is a nice place. Everything was good, we had most of the things we need there. Area is awesome! Lots of hiking within short driving distance and even just on the spot. Shop nearby. Beautiful fall colors.
Booked as a one bedroom (hotel room) My expectations was a hotel room comes with amenities of a hotel. Destinations wiped their hands clean of it. The up side is if you want a tiny queen bed in a room that would fit an oversized California King and your a child size robe for the hot tub and want no help from the company (Destinations that’s a 20 minute walk up the mountain from your room) you’ll have a great stay!! Capitol Peaks is a great place to stay if you actually go through their website which we have always done in the past as you can see the room you’re booking and they go out of their way to help. Thought we’d give Destinations a go this time, but never again. If you ever stay here go through Capitol Peak.
What you see and what you get are vastly different and significantly worse! So generic and worn out. Service is non-existent. Huge cost and then you have to provide your own salt and pepper? Horrible!
