Though there’s a distinctly kid-friendly vibe at this slope-side hangout (full service kitchens give families room to spread out and settle in), it’s clear the Viceroy didn’t sacrifice style for utility. The handsome mountain residences, sprinkled with sophisticated accents like faux-fur blankets, motion-sensor thermostats, and rainwater shower heads, are the works of Amanresort alum Jean-Michel Gathy. That unfussy elegance is also on display at the hotel’s two restaurants: Eight K incorporates locally sourced and organic ingredients for its elevated comfort food, while Nest Public House, nestled between the slopes and the pool, offers more a casual pub-style experience and serves up over 50 Colorado craft beer varieties. Another creative example of its lean green conscience: the hotel swapped minibars with stainless steel thermoses and offers free refreshment stations across the property. But rest assured, not all the après-ski options are so sanctimonious: the 7,000-square-foot chrome-and-glass spa offers an encyclopedic menu of Native American-inspired treatments.
In the Area
Snowmass and its newly developed village, a growing collection of shops and restaurants, are a far more laid-back alternative to the glitz and glamour of Aspen, though the latter is just a 25-minute (free) shuttle bus ride away. But you’re likely here for the star player, the resort’s eponymous 4,400-foot mountain, littered with 91 trails, 21 chairlifts, and a dizzying variety of glades, steeps and half-pipes. If you’re summering here, outdoor adventures include hiking or biking through the wildflowers and Aspen groves of the Central Colorado Rocky Mountains—or exploring via hot air balloon, if you’re feeling especially flush.
How to Get There
We visited the property for a week. It is a well maintained property. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was in a nice quiet area. We found the rooms to be a bit on the small side. We came to hike and it was difficult to get our gear in the room and still move around . The design of the bathroom left something to be desired. There was only one sink. Regardless, overall it was a good facility.
Excellent hotel. Great location and very attentive staff. I attended a wedding at the hotel. The outdoor venue was beautiful and the dinner venue was just as excellent. The fitness room is very well equipped
The Viceroy is a nice, comfortable hotel that has the feeling of a high rise motel. The colors are gloomy and the decor is a bit dated. Staff is pleasant, especially at the concierge desk. The restaurant is good but not great and is expensive. A club soda at the bar costs $3.00. Even the coffee that you have to pay for at a snack bar is average. Complimentary transport to and from the airport is a welcome feature. In skiing season, the Viceroy might be great, but for a summer visit, it is overpriced and not exciting. There was nothing wrong. It just feels like a hotel that is going through the motions.
