Relax sore muscles après ski in the steamy outdoor hot tub before dinner at the on-site Rocks Modern Grill.
In the Area
Every December the world descends upon Beaver Creek for the Birds of Prey World Cup, featuring one of the fastest downhill courses on the tour. The resort’s Birds of Prey run has signs marking the race course, so strap on your sticks and test your skill on its steeps — no Spandex speed suit required. Colorado is known for its microbrews, and one of the best is Crazy Mountain Brewing Company, the Vail Valley’s original microbrewery. Find the hoppy Crazy Mountain Amber Ale on tap at the Beaver Creek Chophouse. Come summer and fall, Red Sky Golf Club has two of the nation’s most stunning courses, one designed by Tom Fazio and the other by Greg Norman. Crystal-clear tributaries of the mighty Colorado River, including the Eagle river, surround Beaver Creek and afford some of the finest trout fly-fishing in the West. Gore Creek Fly Fisherman has been casting in these streams for more than 30 years and has the Vail Valley’s go-to guides.
How to Get There
We chose this hotel because it was dog friendly and a recent addition to the Marriott collection of hotels ie, an Autograph Hotel. Clearly, this location is not up to the standards “yet” for an Autograph Collection Hotel. The rooms are good size, but dated in decor, colors, etc. The TV’s are mounted on the wall, but too small for the space, etc.. The cabinets doors were misaligned and did not close properly, the light in the armoire closet did not turn-off when the door was closed, etc.. A room renovation is sorely needed.
The location charges a $25.00/day resort fee, for what??? As a Titanium Elite with Marriott, I get free internet already! No other benefits outside of normal service expectations are offered. Also, this location is valet parking only at $38.00/day - maybe this makes sense in the winter high-season, but it is unfair in the summer!!!!!
Finally, the location is dog-friendly, but the non-refundable charge is $150.00 - yes, you get a bag of dog treats and several dog toys, but this is an excessive charge.
We will not stay at this hotel again - the add-on charges are excessive and the hotel style/decor is tired and in need of a significant refresh.
Definitely, did not feel my Marriott status was recognized and no accommodations made to offset the significant add-on charges. Too bad, because the location of the hotel in Beaver Creek is excellent.
Heading up to Grand Tetons and Yellowstone and this was in a good location for my driving trip up. Beautiful Views, Great Staff and comfortable room. Nice breakfast in the AM too! I was here before they brought the horses in for their summer horseback riding programs. What a great place to go horseback riding for sure! No other Lodges or Hotels near, so it's quite and pristine area. In the winter they rent snowmobiles.....so Summer or Winter great place to just get out without excessive people. ALSO you can rent the entire Lodge! 11 rooms! Check out their website. They do many types of rentals for family reunions and Businesses. Super place.
We had a very poor experience at this hotel:
Elite benefits - a $12 credit (total for both people) in the restaurant
Hotel voluntarily disclosed that they only had 8 rooms booked but instead of being offered an upgrade we were placed next to construction. Despite the GM's response to a prior review, titanium members rooms do not include water. The request for a 4:00 check out was also refused.
I'm biased as I'm opposed to resort fees in general but if you're going to charge a $50 per night resort fee, you better be a resort. The pool was small and dirty and as other reviewers mention the sauna / steam rooms were moldy and broken and the gym at a residence inn is better. The hot chocolate and wine weren't offered due to low occupancy (even though the charge includes them). This is a mediocre hotel in a resort location.
The location is fantastic and the rooms themselves are quite nice. Many aspects of the room had been remodeled but at this point the bathtub had not been and it was pretty moldy and gross. The cabinets had also seen better days. The rest of the hotel feels very tired but I understand there is currently a remodel in place. How do I know this?
Because the valet accidentally drove our car into the low clearance sign for the parking garage damaging the box/rails. No big deal. Accidents happen. The valet was very nice and apologetic. But after that everything went downhill. There was no supervisor on site but the woman we spoke with notified the GM. The GM left me a voicemail the next day and the woman at the front desk also followed up, letting us know that the GM would be on site when we returned to the hotel to checkout. When we returned to the hotel the GM was not there. We were told that he was not coming after all and the guy we talked too had the paper work for us but otherwise had no idea what would happen next. The only thing he could tell us was that the GM would call us the next day. He didn't. He didn't call the day after that either. The day after that we reached out to him again and got no response. The following day he informed us the insurance would call us within 24 hours. They didn't. We tried the GM again and he said we would hear from the insurance by the end of the week. We didn't. And we still haven't. The GM hasn't responded to anything in almost a week and we can't reach anyone at the hotel since it is closed for a remodel. I can't imagine a worse way to handle this.
