We decided it was time to get away from it all and enjoy a little fun in the snow. So, we threw a dart at the map (not really!) and decided upon Steamboat Springs, CO. We are Wyndham timeshare owners and decided to give the Wyndham Village a shot. We splurged a bit and opted for a Penthouse and boy was it worth it. Very clean and spacious unit. Fully stocked kitchen, fireplace, 2 full bathrooms and a washer and dryer. One thing that bothered me when we first walked in was the lighting...or the lack there of. Just a design flaw, but not enough to kill the trip. We got used to it. Next... I wanted a two bedroom with a queen bed in the second room because we were traveling with another couple. After I discovered that we had two queens, the front desk quickly came to the rescue and converted the beds for us. It was a quick fix, but I would have prefered a room change because our guests later told us that they kept falling into the "crack" in the bed. Not cool. I wish they would have told me this before the trip was over... but I digress!
We were there at the beginning of the ski season (first week of December) so the parking garage was a very welcome amenity. No snow scraping or frozen windshield wipers. The location was very convenient to downtown. There is a shuttle service on site and public transportation is available as well -but I must say, that I am glad that we rented a vehicle.
One thing to note... If you decide to go, don't fall into the same trap that we did. Yahoo Maps says that Steamboat Springs is about a 2.75 hour drive from Denver. Not true! More like 4 because of speed limits and highway grades going through the mountains. The flight may have been cheaper at Denver International, but flying into Hayden would have saved us some valuable vacation time. Hindsight....
All in all, this was a great place to stay with very friendly service. By the way...not sure where or when those "Professional" pictures were taken, but they look nothing like where I stayed. The pictures taken by actual visitors are more accurate.
