Nice get away. Beautiful views.

We were pleased with our stay. It was the off season, so not much was open. Our room was clean, the bed was very comfortable, and the staff was very helpful. Spa area was very nice, my massage therapist was great. Our only complaint is that the pool and the hot tubs are way too heavily chlorinated. Couldn't even stand to be in them. There is a free shuttle into Crested Butte proper which is a very nice perk. Plenty of things to do in this lovely little town. Looking forward to visiting again when it's not the off season.

Clean, Easy Access to Slopes
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We enjoyed our stay at The Elevation. The extremely close proximity to the lifts was great. Furthermore, it is only a short distance to the bus stop (free) that runs between the resort area and the town - very convenient. Thus, once we parked our car, we didn’t drive it again until we left. The hotel overall was very clean and quiet (even with the party they hosted in the lobby one evening - we heard nothing from our room). The pool was great too.

The reason I didn’t give it 5-stars was that the room/cleaning service was confusing. I never did get the full story, but it sounds like you need to call the front desk to explicitly opt-in. The confusion is that there are the standard opt-out cards in the room to hang on the door. In the three days we stayed there, the cleaning service only came one day.

However, to end this review on a good note, they gave my wife and I a free beer on check-in. A small gesture but definitely a sign that they wanted us to relax and enjoy our time in Mount Crested Butte, and we did.

Don’t count on the Spa!!!

I am scheduled to stay at this hotel for a conference. 2 months ago I called and scheduled a massage that would align with the conference. 96 hours before check in I get a call that the therapist no longer works there and my time slot is no longer available.

Perfect Location But Dirty
Reviewed 2 months ago

This hotel has all the makings of a great one but it’s just so dirty and poorly run. The carpets in the entire hotel look like they haven’t seen a vacuum in ages. The spa had trash bins that were literally overflowing with trash and the dirty towel bins just the same. Every surface has something spotty sticky or dirty in the entire hotel. The room was livable and lucky they give you a lot of towels because half of them had food or stains on them. We had breakfast at the order yourself online restaurant the first day and as the guy making our eggs decided to sit on the floor and place his gloved hand directly on the floor while petting a guests dog before getting up to finish cooking we were stunned. They were also had food no longer on the menu but had no way to refund our money back with how their system worked. I had a spa treatment and only actually got half of the steps listed out in the menu for a body wrap. Over all the experience was a serious let down.

The location is really awesome. This place is ski in and ski out and they do allow pets with no hassle. But just know that is what you’re paying for.

Room was never serviced in 4 days
Reviewed 2 months ago

What a terrible experience. The check-in process was easy, only annoyance there was the $20 parking fee (compared to free at MANY other hotels right next door). The room was fine, hotel, in general, is fine...but I sit here in my room now and I have not had my room serviced in the 4 days I have been here. I have called the front desk multiple times each day, walked down to the front desk, talked to the housekeepers...and still nothing. Now I have a dirty room, no shower towels, no toilet paper, full trash cans, completely unacceptable. The worst part is after complaining EVERY single day and asking for a room cleaning, I have not had a single follow up or sincere apology. Next season I'll be staying at the Grand Lodge, or anywhere else really. If I were the GM of this hotel I would be ashamed to provide such sub-par service.
