It’s no secret that après-ski can be as delightful as the ski itself, and at The Westin Snowmass Resort, the same goes for après-ski season. In spring and summer just as much as in the colder times of year, this resort relaxes, restores and refreshes all on its own. With a pool, a spacious sun deck and slope-side hot tubs, it boasts a vast number of ways to take a break in this spectacular mountain locale (scenic gondola ride, anyone?). Even if you stay at one altitude, you’ll already be thousands of feet above sea level, right in the middle of the Rockies – and charming Snowmass Village setting itself is sure to keep your spirits high.
So is the resort – at all times of year, The Westin boasts a vast number of ways for you to vacation in this spectacular mountain locale. You can avail yourself of the WestinWORKOUT options in the window-walledexercise studio, or the WestinRUN jogging program. Sip a cocktail in Vue Lounge, or feast on pizza and pasta at Snowmass Kitchen. To really take your relaxing stay to the next level, visit the spa, which offers you a glass of champagne with your treatment, or sit by the crackling lobby fireplace – if that’s not uplifting, we don’t know what is.
Ranging in size from 360 to 385 square feet, the hotel’s Alpine and Pinnacle rooms feature earth tones and rustic-chic décor to create a modern-mountain-lodge feel. Alpine rooms are located on a quieter side of the hotel that’s near the spa and Kids Club. Pinnacle rooms are ideally situated near mountain trails and property restaurants on the slope side of the resort, and they include a balcony, as well as two queen beds. These rooms look out over the valley or resort. Opt for a Premium accommodation for slopeside views.
Snowmass Kitchen is the resort’s flagship dining destination. Spectacular terrace views and leather and wood décor complement the fresh, seasonal menu of dishes like rack of elk or cowboy-cut ribeye. Get an energy boost with a perfect cup of joe, made especially for you, in the on-site Starbucks. For lunch bites and brews, you can head across the street to The Bar at Wildwood Snowmass, a cool new beer hall in collaboration with New Belgium Brewery. There’s also The Ranger Station, also new, offering craft beers and seasonal fare on the resort’s lower level. And finish the night curled up next to the Vue Lounge’s massive fireplace, sipping a microbrew or the famous Snowmass Sangria.
Natural stone and neutral colors set a relaxing tone, from your first step inside the Snowmass Spa. The complimentary glass of champagne and essential oils in the relaxation lounge prepare you to indulge in specially designed Relax, Revitalize and Rejuvenate packages, like the calming facial and tailored massage, or to put together your own custom experience. You can also receive a massage in the privacy of your room.
Surrounded by pines and Snowmass mountain, The Westin Snowmass Resort is truly in the center of this mountain destination. You’ll have plenty of choices in the way of outdoor recreation, from skiing and snowboarding in the winter to climbing, hiking and enjoying scenic lifts year-round. From the resort, you can also easily walk or take the shuttle to Snowmass Village for premier shopping and dining. A short, scenic drive takes you to downtown Aspen, home to entertainment venues, world-class dining, wildlife sanctuaries and additional year-round outdoor activities.
How to Get There
Not only was the desk staff poorly trained, the meals were sub par and very expensive. But, the worst part of the stay was BED BUG attack in room 422. I even asked at the desk when I checked in to make sure there were no bed bugs. As a result of the nasty critters biting my hand, arm, neck, face, and ear, I've had to go to the doctor for antibiotics following the visit because of severe swelling and infection. Never again will we stay in this hotel who simply do not care about their clients. Do Not Sleep in this HOTEL!
I loved the Westin Snowmass, the room was large, modern and clean. The bed and linens were first rate, and there was good Starbucks filter coffee in the room.
The only downside is that there is a hefty "resort fee" which is odd since there didn't seem to be any resort facilities to use except the gym.
And there is a daily self park charge, which is tough since there is nowhere else to park.
Anyways, I didn't mind the overall cost, but I wish the Westin had just charged a flat dayrate instead of being funky with the extras.
One of the 2 conventions annually for my job was held here this month and I probably won't come back on my own. It is another mountain resort that requires multiple elevators to reach the upper floors. While I understand the building issues, it is incredibly frustrating when the elevators are old and slow. What compounds my frustration is no clearly marked way to avoid this through the stairs. I'm happy to climb 7 floors but I need to know how. On my first night here, I was simply unable to find a path from the lobby to my room and nothing was marked. Also, on multiple occasions the room service wait staff blocked access to the elevator with the serving carts. The breakfast buffet was good and they kept the coffee filled, much appreciated. The room was nice and clean, also appreciated. The spa was not available, so that was disappointing. The workout room was adequate. I did not try any of the restaurants.
We spent Memorial Day weekend at the Westin. A great staff. Friendly, helpful and courteous. Close to Aspen without the Aspen prices.
Our room was clean, well appointed and quiet. The hotel is very environmentally conscious.
We visited this property for a quick getaway for the Memorial Day holiday. At first blush, generally the common areas could use an update (the pool is very nice). It is not up to par with other Westin Resort properties. Our room was fine, albeit a bit dark; however we didn’t intend to spend much time in the room. This hotel shined in terms of service however. The staff with whom we interacted could not have been genuinely nicer. For instance, there was a large fraternity formal...they managed to make all us other guests comfortable and happy and the common areas free of detritus like booze or pizza boxes. Despite being concerned at first, we barely noticed and that’s likely a credit to the pleasant hardworking staff. We really enjoyed the New Belgium Ranger Station nearby and the bar staff at the hotel was great!
