This imposing mountain property, set in Vail Valley at the foot of Beaver Creek Mountain, is the ultimate in soothing retreats. From the neutral palette and signature Westin Heavenly Beds to the luxurious treatments at the tranquil Anjali Spa, relaxation is the byword here. The heated outdoor lap pool has an awe-inspiring mountain backdrop, and the resort’s three dining options pair of-the-moment sensibilities – cool, midcentury modern-inspired furniture, warm mood lighting and handcrafted cocktails – with family-friendly modern American and Latin American cuisine.
In the Area
Step just outside the resort’s back entrance to the Riverfront Express Gondola and spend the day exploring the exhilarating peaks of Beaver Creek Mountain and its 1800 acres of skiable terrain. After a day on the slopes, experience a different kind of winter adventure with a horse-drawn sleigh ride at nearby 4 Eagle Ranch, which starts with a mug of hot chili, continues with a magical ride under a starlit sky, and concludes with a traditional western ranch buffet. Visiting in summer? Get your heart racing on one of Colorado’s wild rivers on a whitewater rafting adventure with Breckenbridge Whitewater, which offers everything from family friendly scenic floats to advanced Class IV and V rafting.
How to Get There
I love the Westin brand and especially this hotel.
The resort is located off of I-70 just down the road a few miles from Vail. The location is outstanding, with the resort being almost right on top of a nice river. You can rent both hotel style rooms or apartment style rooms, and it appeared as thought some folks were living on resort. The main restaurant was nice and the bartender knowledgeable regarding drinks and what's in his cabinet. I was there on business, but did walk out to a small restaurant across the street for breakfast. The large outdoor pool is heated and the two outdoor saunas were definitely heated, though I didn't try either. The gas powered firepit on the seating are overlooking the pool/saunas was a beautiful touch. Being new to the state, I'll probably take my family here for a long weekend, since several folks said this was a more affordable option to staying in an equivalent resort down the freeway in Vail.
The only disappointment was the cost of parking and the requirement that hotel guests valet park their cars. Or at least that's what I understood. My daily valet rate was discounted because of the conference I was attending, but it was still an irritant to not have a less expensive self-park option.
I detest hotels/resorts with "resort fees" and try everything I can to avoid them. A resort fee did not appear in my folio, though I'm unsure if it was because of my group rate or normal procedure for this resort. Either way, kudos to this location for ensuring buyers remorse never entered my mind. This is an outstanding facility, with an outstanding location, gorgeous rooms, and outstanding service from the staff. I'll be back!
My family and I visit this resort often throughout the entire year. It’s a Westin, so of course it’s going to be nice, but what keeps us coming back is the customer service, especially by Tabby at the front desk. She remembers us like family,
greeting my kids with a toy and my dogs with a treat. She goes out of her way to make us, and other guests, feel welcome and appreciated. Thank you Tabby. We will see you soon!
Super friendly staff from beginning until I had to check out. Treated to very nice mountain view room with fireplace, huge bathroom and really comfortable bed. Lots of places to sit outside around a fireplace. The inside was equally as relaxing. Huge lap pool, hot tubs, work on area and steam room. The on site restaurant, Maya, was quite nice for dinner. The mountain views are spectacular. Nice clothing shop in the lobby, White Sage, picked up gift for my wife. Late check out and the car was brought up and off I went. Gonna miss this place.
This is an awesome hotel in Beaver Creek. Gondola on site to take you right to the slopes if you don't want to take their free shuttle. Staff is very friendly. Will definitely stay there again. There are great hot tubs to and fitness center on site too along with very comfy beds.
The hotel rooms, spa and athletic center are fantastic. Food at the Loft bar / lobby is super tasty and service is warm, speedy and friendly. The room service is very quick but just average (except for the guacamole and salsa -- super!). The ski valet and attached ski shop are super convenient and make skiing with kids seamless. We'll be back to the Westin Riverfront for sure.
