Aspen, Vail + The Mountains

Hotels in Aspen, Vail + The Mountains

To be a standout for families and spa-goers may seem an odd combination, but this 190-room, native-stone-and-timber Park Hyatt at the base of Beaver Creek Mountain (just 200 feet from the peak’s ski school) pulls it off with luxury to boot.

Breckenridge is long past its gold rush days, but the town still booms in winter, when one of Colorado’s best-regarded mountains draws skiers from across the globe. Valdoro Mountain Lodge is located only two blocks from the Beaver Run lift, and a ½-mile from downtown.

One of the area's two full-service hotels (the smaller Inn at Keystone is the other) this rare non-condo sits on Keystone Lake with views of mountains and well, condos. Still, a $2 million renovation has helped liven this mainstay lodge.

Ski bums, take note: at the base of Beaver Creek Resort, this 47-room hotel is the closest ski-in, ski-out hotel to a chairlift in North America—it’s just 20 feet away. But that’s not all there is to this slopeside gem.

Since the Four Seasons Resort Vail opened in 2010, its peaked roofs have served as glittering beacons to skiers to the foot of Vail Mountain. All of the 121 rooms are spacious, and 20 are being converted to connecting rooms to accommodate families or large groups of friends.

179-room brick hotel between Aspen Mountain's 2 main ski lifts. Suites come with butler service.

Part of the Keystone Ski Resort, this affordable hotel is approximately 400 yards from the Mountain House ski base, the central hub for ski lifts and equipment rentals.

An exclusive, members-only rental and ownership community located along the Roaring Fork River, the Roaring Fork Club is home to 48 handcrafted log cabins and offers unprecedented access to golf and fishing.

This 50-condominium property puts you minutes away from golf, fly-fishing, or anything your nature-loving heart desires.

Aspen's singular ski-in/ski-out property is also its most glamorous address.

Located on the Keystone shuttle route, this hotel has a warm, rustic vibe that begins in the lobby, decorated with mounted antlers, framed landscape paintings, and plaid armchairs set beside a working fireplace.

With its own high-speed lift steps from the hotel and Wolfgang Puck's only Colorado outlet, the Ritz-Carlton—a giant lodgepole-and-timber cabin built in classic National Park-lodge style—is Beaver Creek's answer to convenience and luxury.

An affordable, comfortable option in Breckenridge, the Hyatt offers all the mod-cons a skiing family might need.

This 125-year-old Aspen icon has a storied past: in the 1970’s Hunter S. Thompson was a regular at the hotel’s J Bar; 19th-century silver miners used the property as a boarding house; ghosts are said to haunt the place. Now a multimillion-dollar overhaul opens a shiny new chapter.

Based in the ski resort town of Steamboat Springs, this vacation home rental company specializes in luxury châteaus in the surrounding area.
