“Great Location”
Reviewed March 12, 2008

My husband and I stayed at the Elevation Hotel in Mt Crested Butte March 6-9, 2008. The staff was great & the rooms were comfortable. The hotel is located right at the base of one of the main ski lifts, and within walking distance of all ski related services. The hotel has a ski shop that we rented our equipment from, and you get free storage there as well. Buy your lift tickets & reserve your equipment online prior to your trip for discounted rates!

The only down side, there is no parking other than valet, and its $15 a night. However, we discovered there are free town shuttles that run every 15 minutes to take you into town. So for us, our rented car was a waste of money!

We ate at the hotel, as well as in town, but once we discovered the Avalanche right outside the hotel, we ate there most, it was cheap & good! We would stay at this hotel again for sure.

Stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms. Nice Kitchette, extra closet space, and nice bedding. Hotel offers "escalade" ride anywhere into town, and will pick you up with just a phone call.
Spa is just mediocre. One would think using "spa" in the name of the hotel would mean the spa was wonderful. It was a room with 2 closets in it for massages.
Food at the hotel restaurant was pricey but good. Portion sizes enough to split with someone else. Would definitly stay here again. They offer a ski valet conveniently located and free.

Stayed February 2008

We checked in on 12/29/07 and stayed through 1/2/08.

I am going to list each area on its own.

Valet:
Parking is included in your stay and we were impressed with the level of friendliness of the valets..We were early for check in so they unloaded our car and stored the items for us. Even dropping our ski's across the street to be tuned and waxed! The were helpful when we forgot some things in the car and had to go back down..When we left I called down for them to get our bags and they arrived within 5 min. They even had the car running,heater and our seats turned on for us so that when we got in the car it was warm! A very nice touch on such a cold day.

Check In:
We were early and when we arrived. a tthe front desk there was only 1 person on duty who was on the phone. However an off duty employee noticed us waiting and jumped behind the counter to get us started. knowing we were early I was not expecting to get our room yet and indeed it was not ready. But when front desk called up and asked housekeeping if it was the housekeeping supervisor overheard it on his walkie and sent them to do our room right away! Once again very impressed. We were happy to go off the the bar and have a drink while we waited (took about 40 min) not only that while we were wating we saw Bill Murray in the Bar!!!

The bar downstairs:
Not sure what the name was...but I have to say I was very unimpressed with the level of service. This is not a big place and 2 bartenders were on duty and they were obviously not that well trained (hubby & I both tended bar through college) This was a theme throughout our entire stay at the Bars & retsurants. the food and drink were good but they took forever to get to you & what you ordered. 1st rule even if your busy LOOK at the Customer and acknowledge them! Don't walk past 5-6 times and ignore them. This even happened with a magager of the bar! (large blonde woman) Even first thing in the morning we went to get some breakfast burrito's and they just ignored us! Once I could have blown off, but whether they were busy or not and at all the resturants and bars this happened. Mind you this was the only complaint I had about the weekend. Some training would solve this problem easily!..

The room:
We booked an Apex King with a mountain view. Room was great, nice linens, marble counters, LCD Tv and DVD player..looks just like the pictures on the website. All brand new. Nice little balcony that overlooked the Red Lady lift. A bonus for us as we could see the snowboarding competition they has as well as the fireworks from it. Housekeeping was good if not a little slow. One morning they forgot to leave us bar towels but they brought us some as soon as I asked.

Concierge:
Fantastic very friendly young guy helped us out several times.

The Mountain:
The reason we came! Very nice lots of advanced terrain as well as a good amount of intermediate stuff (we will go back with our kids next time) Only complaint is that often when you exit a lift you go uphill instead of level or down making it difficult to get out of the way. That and I did think the could make some of the catwalks have a little more grade as we saw lots of people walking because they did not get enough speed. All in all we enjoyed it quite a bit.

Pool/Hot Tub/Sauna:
Pool was quite small but indoors and heated. The kids we saw in it appeared to be enjoying it though.

Hot Tub: seated 6 and was clean and HOT. We used it every night after skiing and only once was there another couple in it.

Sauna: Did not use but it looked brand new.

Ski check:
overall very friendly and sooooo convenient. We could ski almost to the door of the hotel pop off our ski's and only have to carry them 10 ft to the check which was right at the door. One bad experience with a guy from another country one morning..I am pretty sure he was hung over, but he was so rude. Other than that one guy everyone was friendly and helpful.

Ski Shops: had our skii's tuned and waxed, they did an excellent job, very friendly. I picked upa new lens for my oakly goggles because it was snowwing so hard I needed a different tint. very helpful, good selection.
I hope this helps someone out :) I am happy to answer any questions

When we first visited this property in 1999, it was called Crested Butte Marriott Resort. In the time since then it has been a Club Med Resort and then The Elevation Hotel. It has come full cicle and is again Crested Butte Marriott Resort.

I think this is the best choice for lodging in Crested Butte. You can't beat the location right by the lifts. Restaurants and bar were very good. Rooms are less spectacular than the typical Marriott, but they are good.
