Why Stay At Park Hyatt Beaver Creek
This ski-in, ski-out resort is well suited for both families and spa-goers, and the location as the centerpiece of Beaver Creek's European village can't be beat.
To be a standout for families and spa-goers may seem an odd combination, but this 197-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. Wander past the lobby's elk-horn chandelier to rooms with oversize beds and baths featuring products from the hotel's Allegria Spa. The spa, with a $12 million overhaul in 2006 that practically doubled its size to 30,000 square feet, is the perfect place to wind down after skiing to the hotel's doorstep and handing off your gear to the ski valet. But kids are decidedly a focus here, with activities organized by Camp Hyatt (for kids 3-12), the village's best heated outdoor pool and four hot tubs (two are adult-only), and daily story time in front of the Great Room fireplace, complete with complimentary hot cocoa.
In the mornings, stop by the ski valet for complimentary hot cocoa and advance reservations for lunch on the terrace. Spending the day on the slopes? Arrive early for the après-ski scene at the hotel. Live music performances and oversize margaritas lure the see-and-be-seen crowd.
Gather round the fire pit for gourmet s'mores (yes, you can make your own, with a choice of milk or dark chocolate and a selection of handmade marshmallows in vanilla bean, crème de menthe, Grand Marnier, and toffee).
Arrive at Denver International Airport (DEN), which is approximately 130 miles (2 hours 30 minutes) from the hotel, or Eagle County Airport (EGE), which is approximately 30 miles (40 minutes) from the hotel. Colorado Mountain Express offers transfers to/from Eagle County Airport (EGE) for $70 each way.136 East Thomas Place, Avon, Colorado, United States
