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.

High cost benefit!
Reviewed 3 months ago

We spent 5 nites in march, since we booked last minute we paid too much, there was no other choice. The hotel is nice, staff very friendly and excellent location. The room a bit small, but very confortable. The spa pool is ok, the saunas are very good. The only issue that I had was that they were very cheap. First, they give only 1 bottle of water per stay, makes no sense at all. Than, they tell you if you take the shampoo or body wahs you will be charged, wowww, very cheap. You are not allowed t ask for an omelete nor any type of egg in breakfast, which is included, because you will be charged. Eat only what is there... Frankly, I felt money abused, I paid a lot and no water nor eggs in breakfast?? Not again...

Great hotel in every way!

Great location. The boot room backs right out onto the piste and the hotel is walking distance from many restaurants and shops.
The bathroom in the hotel is lovely and very spacious and the beds in the room are very comfortable. The breakfast in the morning has many options and is very good and the staff are great and very helpful with everything. They are happy to help with your skis and boots in the morning and the boot room is warm and has places to hang your boots and sliding stands for your skis. There is a shuttle that can take you to restaurants and the the staff helped us with booking the restaurants too.

Superb, Cosy and Luxurious Hotel!

I stayed at the hotel with my spouse for 4 nights in December (2018). In summary a fantastic hotel with newly renovated rooms all to a 5* standard with exceptional service in a superb location. Everything about the stay was perfect. The hotel arranged our restaurant reservations and there is even a Ski hire shop inside the hotel in which the staff were very friendly and helpful.

The hotel is ski in ski out and in the centre of the Courcheval 1850 village. What was particularly impressive it that they offer a free taxi service that can be asked for at any time during the day and evening in case you want to venture out further. The breakfasts are simple but delicious. The mini pain chocolat and madeleines were the highlight for me. The hotel also has a wonderful spa (Sauna, steam room Jacuzzi and all!) which was free to use and a good break after a long day skiing. - We will definitely be returning next year.

Fantastic luxury hotel right on the mountain!

Everything about our stay was perfect, from beginning to end. The hotel arranged transportation for us to and from the airport, and made dinner reservations for us each night (thank you Sylvie!). We were lucky enough to be upgraded to the penthouse suite, which has a fireplace and great views. The breakfast buffet at the hotel restaurant is sooooo delicious (best waffles ever!). Highly recommend you go each morning. And there’s a ski shop INSIDE the hotel with a knowledgeable staff who will take care of all your needs... and you can ski in and out right from the shop!! Everyone at the hotel is super friendly and attentive. We had the best stay, will definitely be returning for another visit.

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!
