In the style of an alpine chalet, this large Beaver Creek resort is a great value and a very nice addition a few steps away from the village area. Pine molding around the doors, cabinetry in the rooms and around the beds painted with German style alpine flowers give this place a rustic feel. It is, however, far from rustic in the amenities available in the rooms.
The bathrooms are very large with gigantic double showers but no tubs. I loved the rock shaped soaps with pumice in the bathroom. The beds and linens are first rate as well. If you go, ask for a room facing the slopes for the best views. They do not charge tor overnight valet car service, and this also makes for a great deal.
Rooms contain large, flat panel televisions and dual ski boot warmer/dryers. The free wifi kept kicking me off, however.
The Grouse Mountain Grille serves meals all day. We enjoyed an amazing breakfast on the open air patio surrounded by blooming flowers and buzzing hummingbirds this July. Prices in the Grille are premium. However, they also have complimentary Starbucks coffees and teas on the second and fourth floor of the hotel for guests each morning.
The staff is respectful and professional. While everyone was friendly, they seemed quite young, like this was their summer job. They are not experienced professionals. This isn't necessarily bad, but it's what keeps me from giving them five stars, coupled with the fact that they seemed a bit understaffed while we visited. For example, we needed to get our car from the valet, but there was noone there. We walked back to the front desk to wait for someone to notice us, at which point he left the desk to get the car himself. I was just surprised that they didn't seem to have coverage for the desk and valet.
You can get good deals online for the rooms, and the main lift area and Beaver Creek village is about a 5 minute walk. For the room quality and value overall, I really enjoyed this hotel.
