What We Love

  • Room views of skiers whizzing by, or of the charming village
  • Turn-down service with bite-size sweets, like a raspberry tucked into a thimble-size pie crust
  • Friendly, informal service in French or English
  • Dreamy, snowy views during the breakfast buffet – fresh OJ, crepes, eggs and smoked salmon

What To Know

  • Comfort Room rates are based on a seven-night stay
  • For guests 13 and over, a local tax of approximately $2.15 per person, per night, will be collected by the hotel at checkout
  • If you arrive by bus, you can walk uphill to the hotel in 10 minutes, or call the hotel for a pickup; just make sure you tell them you want a ride, not just an escort to walk with you to the hotel
  • The hotel is happy to store your winter sports gear in the ski room
  • The satellite TV and WiFi can be clunky, but you don’t come here for the high-tech amenities

Overview

The Review

In the Savoie region of the French Alps, Courchevel comprises three villages distinguished by their elevations: Courchevel 1550 (meters above sea level), Courchevel 1650 and Courchevel 1850. The highest one is really the heart of the village, with the resort’s chicest shops and glitziest atmosphere, and the 31-room Hotel des Trois Vallées. This intimate, just-off-the-run mountain chalet is steps from both the main ski lifts and the narrow streets lined with boutiques, but it’s more likely to host ski-mad families than the glam crowd that frequents this part of the Alps.

{“type”:”img-inline”,”src”:”/static/images/product/properties/2023/prop-20585-1325006344-full.jpg”,”width”:”275″,”caption”:”Comfort Rooms have a classic chalet look, with blonde-wood walls and colorful accents.”}Open for a short season from mid-December to April, the Trois Vallées has a young and informal staff that changes from winter to winter, but it’s experienced and more than happy to answer questions about the hotel and resort — which is useful, since the rooms lack any brochures about the property or destination. The overall vibe is low-key and best for travelers who don’t like or need hand-holding.

The cozy lobby has a classic look, with raw wood and regional stone architecture that’s intriguingly accented with transparent plastic chairs. Upstairs, the Comfort Rooms continue the all-wood style but feel fresh and modern, in a cream palette with chalet-style desks in unfinished blond wood. Maroon polished leather chairs supply an eye-catching dose of color, but for me the highlights were the full wall of windows from which I could watch skiers zipping by on the slopes, and the charming village, with its traditional chalet architecture.

After a cold day on the slopes, the Trois Vallées provides a welcoming home base, with extras like the small spa, gym and hamman, plus a revamped restaurant that has a fondness for kitschy deer motifs. The space serves as the dining room at breakfast and there’s a quiet lobby bar for après-ski drinks before setting out for dinner in the village.

Courchevel has endless dining options, from paninis and hamburgers at one of the casual spots in the La Forum mall, to brasserie-style lunches with stunning alpine views up on the ski runs, to candlelit elegance in the village. Despite its reputation as the Saint-Tropez of Courchevel, elevation 1850 is a grounded mountain resort with something for everyone.

Thank You For a Perfect Stay!

Wow! We can’t recommend this hotel enough! It was perfect from start to finish! The staff are so professional and in a really friendly way and go the extra mile to ensure your holiday is unforgettable. The decor and ambience are perfect! We had a room facing the slopes which was picture perfect lovely!! We had a really early departure with our tour operators wanting to get us down the mountain early to avoid traffic delays and the staff obliged with an early breakfast which was much appreciated. The ski in ski out location was ideal. Wide choice of local restaurants all of which were serving up lovely food. We hope we can visit next year as we are already missing Courchevel!

We stayed there one night at the World cup and were treated exceptionally well. The hotel is very stylish and has a great ambience. It is small but brilliantly positioned as a cool ...but not too cool.... elegant, very comfortable hotel. It is superbly positioned for ski in-ski out, and the staff could not have been more helpful. Loved it and WILL stay again...

Lovely luxury hostel

Discretion, pure style and friendly service convey a great experience in this luxury hostel if you’re not willing to pay the price of a 5-star in Courchevel 1850. Ski on-off is a plus. Try Dean’s cocktails !
