Reviewed 17 December 2006

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.

We stayed here during March of 2006 for about a week.

Check-in was smooth but the building is like a maze with lots (and I mean lots, inside and outside!) of stairs and a few elevators. It took us a little while to understand where we were going. The only elevator going to our floor was broken down that day so the porter and my husband had to carry the bags all the way up. This elevator broke down a few times during our stay which was a little annoying because we had to carry our son up and down the stairs. Having said so, our room was closest to the slopes, making it very convenient so we didn't complain much.

Our room was a little dark, positioned on a side that doesn't get much sunlight but the interior was very clean and decent. There was a fireplace but we didn't use it. Still, the place was very warm and comfy. Since we have a toddler who drinks milk on demand, we needed a hotel with at least a fridge and preferably a microwave. This hotel had a full sized kitchen with dishwasher, all the necessary equipments, plates, cups and cutlery. Even a washer/dryer.

By the way, their shampoos and soaps are from Aveda, and the rosemary shampoo was one of the most refreshing things we ever tried after a long tiresome day on the slopes.

I had altitude sickness that lingered on so I ended up not skiing much. Still there was a lot to do with a child since there was a playground in the back (don't know if it belongs to The Charter) and a tiny slope where the kids can just roll around in the snow. They also have an indoor pool and 2 Jacuzzis (1 indoor and 1 outdoor) where I spent most of my time. They had spaghetti floats the kids could play with. Unfortunately, since there is no lifeguard, some teenagers were running wild without supervision.

The town center is less than 5 minutes away by foot. The hotel does have a courtesy shuttle bus but unless you have skis that you don't want to carry around, walking is much quicker since the bus never seems to come.

Both the DVD player and the CD player were broken down in our room so we asked to have them fixed. Someone came and looked and said he was going to have someone else come over because his shift was over. Nobody came. We asked the hotel repeatedly to fix or exchange them but it didn't happen during our stay. We made our complaint upon check out when the receptionist asked how we liked our stay, and the receptionist was very courteous, apologized and took a few dollars off our bill.

Most of the guests there seemed to be families which made total sense since there are rooms with 2 -3 bedrooms (ours was a 1 bedroom). They didn't have any kids' events but the do have a game room and 3 or 4 courtesy computers with internet access that the kids were infatuated with.

The spa here was nothing to write home about. I liked the spa at Vail Cascade Resort & Spa far better with its range of offerings and beautiful facility.

Overall we had a very pleasant experience at this hotel. There were a few glitches, but it was something that we could overlook. My son loved the freebie breakfast granola bar that was offered near the entrance. I am embarrassed to say I think we took an obscene amount of them.

Our family of four stayed at the Charter in August 2006 as part of a summer vacation. The Charter is part hotel part condominiums. The room we stayed in was very clean and comfortable and was outfitted very nicely. The walls were soundproofed well, but we did hear the people staying above us as they walked. There is no air conditioning at the hotel, so it was warm during the day, and at night we opened the outside door and put a fan to blow in the cool mountain air and we were OK.

The hotel has underground parking, which was nice. There are about 5 different buildings at the charter, and it can get confusing when walking around the hallways. There are indoor and outdoor pools, which were very nice (the kids liked them). We would recommend the Charter to anyone staying at Beaver Creek - I don't think you will find a better value than this in town hotel.

I just had my wedding reception at The Charter and it was fantastic! All the staff from the bellman, front desk, wait staff and sales managers were all very helpful and very professional. I can't say enough how beautiful this location is and for the price it is a great choice in Beaver Creek. We stayed 4 nights and had a great experience. The rooms are all individually owned therefore decorated differently, we had several guests staying there and they all enjoyed their rooms. The pool, hot tub and grounds are all very nice. The views are great - ask for a room facing Strawberry Hill and the pool area. Remember this is mostly a condo/hotel so bring your own lunch food or walk a few yards to the main town area for a nice dinner.

We stayed six nights and skied five days. This is a great choice for families, providing easy walking or shuttle access to the base of the mountain and the village itself. The condo was clean and comfortable with all facilities for cooking and laundry, tv, dvd player.

Sure, its expensive, but the service is great and the jaccuzzi is hot and wlecome after the days skiing.

A plus was the restaurant, which was surprisingly good value for great food and impeccable service.

We booked at the Charter for three nights over their busiest time of year - Spring Break and were not disappointed. Having stayed at the Hyatt and the Inn at Beaver Creek in the past, I was curious to try the Charter. Though not as close as the previously mentioned hotels to the main lift (Centennial) or the Village, the Charter has it's advantages 1. It's less expensive than the other places; 2. It is sooo close to the Elkhorn Lift, you practically can roll out of bed and be on that lift in minutes (the morning I tried it; I was the ONLY person using the lift!) 3. The restaurant is very good, and there is an on-site ski shop and wonderful spa; 4. The Shuttle runs all the time and takes you right to Centennial or Strawberry Park lifts in minutes. If you skip the shuttle, you can walk to the village in a few minutes.

The disadvantages? We had to report several maintenance issues, a leaky shower head and TV remote with dead batteries, but those were painless issues. The breakfast buffet is mediocre and pricey, but then we found out there are NO breakfast places in the whole village anyway. Even a couple muffins and coffee at the Starbucks in the Village will run you $14, so the cold buffet at $6-7 isn't so bad.

We went over to Bachelor Gulch via the Elkhorn Lift and had lunch at the new RITZ CARLTON and got a taste of what it would be like to stay there at double the price of the Charter. For a really big splurge, book a dinner at Beano's Cabin. It was amazing! We'd go back again.
