“St. James Pl. in the Fall”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2010

Just finishing up a beautiful week here in Beaver Creek, Colorado at St. James Pl. Anytime I am able to trade my timeshare in Vail for St. James Pl., I jump on it. The resort is right on the Beaver Creek square. Many of the units have recently been refurbished. I was able to spend the week in a 3-bedroom, 3-bath villa (#306). It would sell for around $1.3 million if sold. Everything is top notch and this week is especially feautiful with the changing of the color of aspen. We enjoyed the Vail Oktoberfest in Vail Village at the beginning of our stay. What a fantastic time we had there! If you ever get the chance to come to Colorado, this is one of the finest timeshare trades you can make. As far as restaurants.....many great places to go but I would stay away from Tuscanini....the food is very mediocre (no flavor and small portons at a large price) and the service is the same.

We just returned from Beaver Creek and had stayed at the St. James. It was absolutely wonderful. We had originally reserved a studio and when we arrived, they had put us in a 1 bedroom. It was huge and had a fireplace and full kitchen. We were surprised because we had planned on eating out every meal because we thought we wouldn't have a kitchen. The amenities in the hotel were top notch. They helped with every request; the room was incredibly clean; and the hot chocolate in the lobby was the best. They gave us a ski locker that was about 100 yards from the slopes. It was a crawling distance from the Dusty Boot(our new found favorite place) and that helped for our trip home! We've read many reviews on this site and thought we'd add our own. My wife is very particular about the quality of rooms we stay at and this one did not dissapoint at all. We would gladly return and would look forward to trying out a bigger unit with more of our family. This was a romantic/skiing trip and it served it's purpose well.

This is the first time I have written a review online...But I just had to share how the St. James really made our ski vacation perfect. The staff and hotel exceeded our expectations. Catherine in the reservations office started us off by answering all our questions and choosing the acommodations that would be perfect for us. Janice the concierge helped us in so many ways getting ready prior to the trip and again once we arrived. There were many others that helped also, but I cannot remember all their names. Our one bedroom suite had a beauiful view of the courtyard and a balcony...it was so nice to be able to step outside the room for some fresh air in the morning. The suite was very spacious and much larger than what we would have expected. It was room 314. the living room had plenty of room for us to relax with a large sofa and two big easy charis, as well as a large open space for my daughter to play. There was a dinning room table to accommodate 6pp but could probably accommodate 10 if needed....It was so wonderful to have a kitchen, especially one so spacious with all the conveniences of home. Also I did not realize how wonderful it would be to have a washer and dryer in the suite to wash all the ski gear each day. I could have traveled with one less piece of luggage. We loved the way their were two spacious bathrooms and the one bathroom openned to the bedroom with a toilet and sink and sunk-in tub and then it openned to a second bathroom with a very spacious shower and sink and toliet which also had a door to the foyer. The indoor hot tub and pool were great, as well as the outdoor hot tub. There was always complimentary coffee and hot chocolate in the lobby and a lovely lobby area where you could sit and relax with a baby grand paino...They were also complimentary granola bars in the lobby....Anytime I called the operater the phone was answered immediately and whenever I needed something it was always brought up very quickly. They had ski lockers for our skis that was right on the walking ground level, which makes it very convenient to walk to the slopes. One of my main reasons for choosing this hotel was because we wanted a five star hotel as well as proximity to ski school. Every morning my daughter loved to pass the fountain and see if it was awake (it was always doing a different dance- as she called it) and then we would walk pass the ice skating ring and then ski school was right there...it was so great, especially having skis with us. Everything about the entire hotel was wonderful. There were also wonderful little surprises about the village that were great. Because we stayed at the St James we recveived a 20% discount at Alta sports to rent skiis and they were attached to the hotel and very easy to work with. We also enjoyed the Dusty Boot also attached....they will grill your salmon the way you like it to go ontop of your salad. One of my personal favorites was the complimentary shot of hot chocloate with whipped cream at the top of the Centenial Lift everyday at 9:30am. There were chefs walking around with silver trays and complimentary cookies at the base of the mountain at 3pm everyday. The kids Ski school was amazing, my 4 year old who was never on skiis, was skiing down the mountain by Day #4. Simon was the head of the school and was so amazing ..as well as his staff, including Flinn and Emma, who was great....Also Apre Ski at the Park Hyatt was wonderful.....And only momemts away from the St. James.....so that was fabulous...We loved that everything was so close to the St James and that we could be everywhere in moments... Just a perfect Ski vacation and we cannot wait to go back next year!

Spent spring break at the St James with wife and 3 kids. It was every thing you could expect. 2 bedroom condo with 2 baths, kitchen, washer dryer, and a pull out sofa in the living room.
They are currently renovating the rooms and we had one of the ones that had not been fixed up yet. But that was fine as the condo was clean, in good shape and was very comfortable. We saw one of the renovated units and it was very nice as well.
One thought would be if you are acustomed to a soft pillow bring your own. The pillows were rock hard.
Kitchen had everything we needed including a tea pot and coffee maker. THey brought coffe in each day but would suggest going to the city market and buying the brand you like.
The staff at reception was very nice and check in and out was handled quicly and effeciently.
The pool is fine and there is an indoor as well as an outdoor hot tub. - none of these were ever very busy. Parking is easy and the access to the main level where the ice rink is includes a room where you can leave your skis and boots.
All in all a very comfortable hotel that is about a 5 minute walk to the main ski lift in Beaver Creek.

This was our annual trip to Beaver Creek for skiing. We booked our stay at the St. James because of its proximity to the slopes. What great accomodations! We rented a 2 bedroom 2 bath condo that was completely remodeled and brand new on the inside. Comy beds and great bathrooms. TV's in every room so kids could watch one show and adults another. PLENTY of room to spread all the ski stuff out! Will definitley stay here again.

The condos in this complex are recently remodeled and in great condition. Its right on the main plaza and a short walk to the lifts. We have also stayed at Ski in/out hotels in BC such as the Park Hyatt. You may give up some convenience but you really gain a lot in space. When the kids are old enough to carry their own gear, its nice to have the extra space. The rooms were clean and the kithcen had pleanty of cookware as well as a washer/dryer. WiFi was not available in our room, but there was an ethernet jack and the front desk has network cables. Overall a very nice experience.

  • Liked — Large, clean rooms.

We just returned from Beaver Creek where our family spent several days skiing. We stayed three nights at St. James Place. The staff was nice and the two bedroom condo had a great layout, wonderful master bath, large family room and kitchen. The underground parking was a plus. We were lucky to get a condo on the top floor with the cathedral ceilings. However, I'm not sure I would stay there again for several reasons: never could get the television to work correctly, no wireless Internet, except in the lobby (Who wants to lug their laptop down to the lobby after a day of skiing?), tiny outdoor hot tub (could fit maybe six people), and not truly ski in/ski out. (There is an indoor pool and hot tub.) It is on the opposite side of the village from the main lift, so quite a haul with your equipment. You could have the desk call a shuttle to drive you around to the main village drop off point, but you still have to get your skis, etc. out of the basement storage area, put them on and off the shuttle.

  • Liked — The layout of the condo.
  • Disliked — Not truly ski in/ski out.
