We went there to ski early in the season and got a good deal here. It's hard to go wrong in Beaver Creek, all the places I've stayed were pretty nice.
We stayed in the hotel part, but they have condos as well. We were greeted upon arrival by 3 different people as we went to check in, check in was quick and easy. We self parked in the gargage, but I imagine most peope use the valet. The room was nice, like a typical hotel room but with a refrigerator, maybe a little bigger, old tv, nice bed, Aveda products in the bathroom. Also, a complementary bottle of wine and wine charms were left in the room for us, nice touch.
The pool in the spa area was nice and clean with plenty of towels, we had the outside hottub to ourselves b/c we went around 9pm. We tried to go after skiing and it was really crowded with couples and families and lots of kids, but it cleared out pretty early. Inside pool and hottub seemed nicer for families, bigger. The room comes with robes and tumblers for bringing a beverage to the pool.
When the elkhorn lift is running this is technically ski in-ski out but the building is very large and depending on what side you are on it may be easier to take the shuttle. Shuttle ran a lot, we never waited more than 5 minutes. At night we walked to the village in about 5 minutes, but you could also take the shuttle. I will go back to the charter this season.
The only downside is the building is very confusing with floors and elevators that never made sense to me. Somehow we had to go up in the elevator to get to our car in the parking garage and the lobby even though we seemed to be on the 3rd floor from looking out our window, I guess b/c the whole place is on the side of a mountian. All of the floors were labeled with letter instead of numbers, so it was hard to figure out whether you needed to go up or down.
For lunch while skiing on a sunny day, sit outside at the Chophouse at the base of the mountian. Very good food for lunch at the same prices as lunch on the mountain, but really good food. The restaurants at Beaver Creek were pricey, I think even more than Vail. It is worth it to go to the better (fancier and pricier) restaurants because you will get better food without paying much more, the more causual places were not that good and almost as expensive. The Coyote was good for a quick casual dinner or lunch though.
