Upon entering the 190-room hotel, guests find themselves in the Antler Hall, a large gathering place with fireplaces, lounge areas and two-story windows looking out to the ski resort. A residential feel and bright, contemporary colors are all part of a $40 million facelift during the past four years.
The ginger peach signature scent lingers in the air as guests approach the Allegria Spa, which boasts 23 treatment rooms and three spa suites. The spa also has a unique self-guided water ritual. The stages include a Thermae pool, a Caldarium mineral pool, a Cascata shower, a Caldarium steam shower and a Tepidarium relaxation room.
All hotel rooms at the Park Hyatt include flat-screen TVs, DVD players and a jackpack unit for laptops, electronics and other outlets. Standard fare also includes fridges, humidifiers and robes, and Wi-Fi is available for guests, as well. Every room has its own unique character, including some turreted suites and rooms overlooking the year-round ice-skating rink and world-class shopping found at the center of town.
The resort’s restaurant, 8100, is named for the elevation at which it sits. Guests will follow their nose to the natural wood-burning grill, where such savory items as bacon-wrapped asparagus and herb-rubbed elk sear and sizzle over the oak embers. Guests can also choose from an array of specialty cocktails for an après ski bite, or indulge in a chocolate lavender molten cake with house-made bourbon ice cream. A cozy atmosphere right off the slopes makes this a perfect stop any time of the day. Yearly events pepper the schedule for the restaurant, as well, including the Beaujolais Nouveau wine event and “The Weekend Sneak” hosted by Chris Anthony of ski filmmaker Warren Miller fame.
The firepit outside is always a popular spot, with large natural wood logs and specialty marshmallows for making s’mores, such as Grand Marnier, vanilla, M&M, toffee and crème de menthe.
From the outdoor pool and hot tubs to the historic billiards room and history wall, the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort and Spa does not disappoint.
