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 had a reservation with them to spend some nice family sky days but my daughter broke her arm 5 days before and we could not travel, westin / marriot and the whole chain did not agree to any cancellation or change or modification or recognition by this reservation, so I lost everything I paid at the expense of a small illness ... a shame, a lack of respect and total consideration for the client, lack of tact and sensitivity, you may be dying that they do not importara ..... I recommend you think twice before booking in a large chain inhuman that only interested in the numbers and does not respect the human condition at all, we must return to the small hotels served by their owners where a person is human and not just a number and / or profit
We stayed in a wonderful two bedroom suite that had a great view of the river/mountain/pool. The hotel ambience, modern decor and vibe was fantastic. It was very stylish but still gave off that mountain vibe and feel. I’m a Marriott Platinum Premier Elite Member and this property did not disappoint.
The highlight of this hotel was the service I received from the concierge staff. The person in particular that helped me and really shined above the rest was Trinity W. I’ve had 101 overnight stays this year at Marriott/SPG properties, and Trinity was by far the best person I’ve dealt with—and that includes all staff members of a hotel (front desk, management, concierge service, restaurant staff, etc). She was extremely helpful with getting ventures and excursions set up for my family and I. She set us up with Dog Sledding, Scenic Gondola Rides, Snow Coaster, Eagles Nest and Snowmobiling. She also set us up with transportation and restaurant reservations. Yes, I know this is what a concierge staff is supposed to do, but Trinity went out of her way to do these things with a smile and flawlessly executed and came through with everything she said she’d do. And not only that, all the excursions she set up far exceeded my expectations. It felt good to know that if I went to Trinity, she would set something up for me while I was able to relax and do other things and enjoy the property and not worry. I would HIGHLY recommend asking for Trinity when you visit this property.
The location of this hotel is also great. Its right at the bottom of Beaver Creek Mountain. You can get to Beaver Creek Village via free hotel shuttle or Uber. It’s about a 10 minute ride. It’s also only about a 15-20 ride to Lionshead Village or Vail Village. I am definitely staying at this hotel again.
The only thing that prevented me from giving this hotel 5 stars was:
1. The front desk staff could of been a lot friendlier. It’s not that they were mean or rude, they just seemed disconnected and not concerned with people staying there. Very often I would just walk by and nobody would even greet me or say hello—even though I was there for 6 nights.
2. The hotel billing structure is extremely difficult to understand. I still don’t have it squared away correctly because I have multiple billing statements.
**I will also add there was a male hotel
manager who was extremely accommodating when my flight was canceled and helped me get into the the same room for an extra two nights. Last but not least, there was also a member of the wait staff at The Lift Cafe who was a phenomenal server. She was from Hawaii I believe and seemed to be about my age (early 40’s). I cannot recall the names of these two staff members but they were very noteworthy for their assistance and help.
Thanks Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa!! See you again soon!
We decided to stay at this property last minute and ski over Thanksgiving. All in all we had a great 3 days at the property. It is a wonderful hotel, we liked the location in Avon and that we could walk around town. As it was early season the hotel’s gondola was not running yet, but we were aware of that. The shuttle bus is fine, but the gondola is much easier when open after early December. Geno out front on the Guest Services staff was amazing, so friendly, and so full of local knowledge. This has to be the most dog friendly hotel I have ever seen and it made me sad we did not bring our dog up. We had thanksgiving dinner at the hotel, we had a new waitress, but she did a good job, and the food was great. My kids loved the salt water pool and hot tubs.
One thing to keep in mind as you book, there is a daily resort fee on top of the room rate and a fee for parking. Both will add up, so keep them in mind as you are planning what your stay will cost. The day we were scheduled to leave a big storm hit and the highway home closed. We decided to play it safe and stay an extra night, the staff was great, got us extended and kept us in the same room.
I loved our room. It was cozy, spacious, and clean. The bathroom was very clean as well and quite large. The bed was very comfortable. We loved the fireplace/living room studio set up next to the king-sized bed. We felt very much at home staying here. Any interactions we had with staff were friendly and helpful. I would surely recommend this resort location if you are going to be staying in the area - they excelled at comfort and cleanliness. It was a close driving distance to downtown Beaver Creek Resort for dining, skiing and snowboarding - and other wonderful dining options nearby.
I was so impressed by the people who work at the Westin Riverfront Resort, they were so helpful and friendly and especially Eric, who helped us upgrade to a room like I have never seen before,everything about our stay was great
