6 Best Hotels in Beaver Creek, Vail Valley

Beaver Creek Lodge

$$$$ | 26 Avondale La., Beaver Creek, CO, 81620, USA

A large atrium that doubles as an art gallery on the first floor grabs all the attention at this modern hotel a few hundred yards from the lifts. Rooms are moderately decorated and generously proportioned and nicely split between a bedroom and living room with kitchenette—you'll get more space for your money here than at most other properties in the heart of the village, which makes it great for families. Creekside views are pricier but tranquil, especially if you have a balcony.

Pros

  • Room layouts great for families
  • Great location
  • Friendly service

Cons

  • A short walk to the lifts
  • Rooms feel dated
  • No spa

Lodge & Spa at Cordillera

$$$$ | 2205 Cordillera Way, Edwards, CO, 81632, USA

An aura of isolated luxury prevails at this ridge-top lodge with a style that calls to mind the finest alpine hotels, and is popular with return guests. The rooms vary quite a bit in size; those in the newer wing tend to be larger. There are wood-burning fireplaces in some of the older rooms, whereas the newer rooms have gas fireplaces.

Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort and Spa

$$$$ | 136 E. Thomas Pl., Beaver Creek, CO, 81620, USA Fodor's Choice

With magnificent antler chandeliers, and towering windows opening out onto the mountain, the lobby of this slope-side hotel manages to be both cozy and grand. Rooms are small and simply furnished but the resort is designed with skiers in mind. Perhaps the ultimate in pampering is stepping into your warmed and waiting ski boots. With two gondolas just outside, this is a true ski-in ski-out property. Once the boots are off, enjoy a hot toddy or s'mores by the outdoor fire pits. Village-view rooms with balconies offer sunset vistas and great people-watching in the square below. The on-site Exhale Spa and the nearby Beaver Creek Golf Club (with preferred tee times for guests) also make this hotel popular with nonskiers.

Pros

  • Beautiful on-site spa
  • Cozy Colorado mountain vibe
  • Ski-in ski-out location

Cons

  • Noisy during event season
  • Small rooms
  • A big-resort feel

Pines Lodge

$$$$ | 141 Scott Hill Rd., Beaver Creek, CO, 81620, USA

This Swiss-style ski-in ski-out lodge is a winner for skiers, combining upscale accommodations with an unpretentious attitude. The aura of laid-back luxury comes from little extras such as afternoon tea or hot chocolate by the fireplace in the lobby; there's even an on-site ski shop. Rooms are clean and light. They vary in size—ask for a corner room facing the mountain, as these have an extra sofa (with foldout bed) for contemplating the views from the large windows. Some rooms have balconies overlooking the ski area. The lodge is also known for its fine restaurant, the much-lauded Grouse Mountain Grill.

  • Traditional European chalet decor
  • Slope-side location
