OK, they will hate me. The place is nice, has comp bathrobes (always a sign of a bit of class, albeit these are the simple terry-cloth type), and of course they try to cater to the fatter cats in Crested Butte--but they are not the Westin in Snowmass, which I just reviewed.
The room is very nice--don't get me wrong. Large LCD TV, wet-bar, suite-style all around. But the carpet is just a bit tired, as are the bathroom fixtures--you know, the stuff that makes the last difference. Classes above my usual haunts in Hilton Garden Inns and the like, but still--I want to try to keep it in perspective and give you an honest review.
This is a wonderful place for most folks who've never been to a Waldorf Astoria or similar, and I'd like to give it 4 1/2 stars in my book. But it's just not up there, especially not with that view that's taken up by hotel infrastructure 2/3s of the way and just a bit of mountain for the last third--and none of it visible from the bed. Good thing I didn't bring some hot mama....
Loved the shuttle bus down to Crested Butte proper. Quite recommendable place.
