The Sebastian is what results when you slip a bit of Manhattan chic into a Colorado ski lodge—this boutique hotel is part art museum (the halls and lobby are dedicated to Mexican abstract artist Manuel Felguérez), and part nightclub, with the Frost Bar featuring a tapas menu and sparkling wine and popcorn served in the library on Friday nights. Rooms have a formal feel with dark wood furniture, cream coverings, and leather chairs. Slopeside, there's the Sebasitan Basecamp,
a ski concierge at the Gondola One lift where you can grab your gear, hot chocolate, and warm brownies; in summer, pick up your bike. Leonora restaurant has a large wine-rack column and serves stellar food.
