“Snuggle in the Snow.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2011

The slope side view was excellant, and our room was very comfortable. I especially liked the ski vallet service. We didn't have to carry our skis in and out of our rooms and all over the world! , The ski in & out location could not have been any better. The location had to have been the best on the Mountain.

Just returned from the Elevation with my son's family and it was awesome! We had the Presidential Suite which was huge, two large bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths. living and dining room. great kitchen and fireplace. The location for skiers is perfect, right at the lifts. Equipment available in the hotel and they have a ski concierge. The service from everyone was great! The spa is wonderful and there is a nice restaurant and bar. Room service was wonderful. Sitting around the large fire pit with a hot toddy at the end of the day is a must! We had a package that included equipment and lift tickets and while it was not cheap, you get what you pay for. I would stay in this hotel again in an instant! It really made the skiing portion a breeze!

This was my first trip to Crested Butte and I love it here! The Elevation Hotel & Spa is fabulous! Compared to even the most deluxe, top notch places to stay in Vail, this hotel is right up there with the best of the best, and with Crested Butte, there are no long lift lines like Vail. My husband had been here 15 years ago when this hotel went by another name and was managed by another company. The new, beautiful renovations are superb! We will definitely come back again, hopefully soon!

we just got back from a week in Crested Butte at the Elevation Hotel. We couldn't have been happier with our decision to go to this mountain for our first ski trip out west! The skiing was fantastic and the lift lines were non-existent. The hotel was great- it was so nice to ski in/ski out each day. EVERYONE that worked at the hotel, on the mountain and at the restaurants was incredibly friendly and helpful. Bryant was awesome at the front desk. We would go back tomorrow if we could! Be sure to check out some of the restaurants in town too (we liked The Secret Stash & Ryce the best).

Tips:
1. You do NOT need a car if you stay at this hotel. There is a shuttle service you can use to get from the airport to the hotel (about $60 round trip). The bus that runs from the hotel to town is so easy to use and runs on a better schedule than our city buses. Use it and save some $$!

2. Our shuttle driver was nice enough to bring us to the liquor store in Gunnison upon arrival. This winter Coors Light is running a promotion- buy a 24 pack of Coors Light and inside is a coupon for buy one lift ticket get one free ($87 value). You can only buy the cases in Gunnison! If you are going this ski season you should call a liquor store ahead of time to make sure they are still running this promotion/carrying the promotional case - worth the stop and even more so if you like coors light!

We stayed at Elevation for a long weekend in January. Two of the people with whom we were traveling were celebrating their birthdays and Bryant helped me by putting champagne in the rooms for our arrival...the customer service we received at the hotel was outstanding. OUTSTANDING. We had slopeside views, with private balconies, and our room was a junior suite- so it has a king bed and then a divider with a couch and a TV on the other side. King bed was soooo comfy!
My only complaint (if I had one) was that the kitchenette was not that user friendly... very little counter space. And there isn't a lot of storage in the rooms. But I think compared to other hotels I've stayed in, they provide everything you could want, and it was extremely comfy/well furnished.
I used the fitness center one day and it's great- lots of equipment, all newer, and anything you could want from weights to machines to cardio. We also used the pool/hot tub ....the hotel would do well to install an outdoor hot tub (and there is only one hot tub for the whole place which could get crowded).
The restaurant has GREAT food (try the wings, fish tacos, or the chicken pot pie), and a very nice ambiance. They have an outdoor bar and fire pit as well to make apres ski enjoyable. I would highly recommend this place.
