Scout loves

  • The fantastic ski-in ski-out location at Snowmass Mountain.
  • All rooms feature the trademark Westin decor, which also includes those heavenly showers.
  • As you can expect from any Westin Hotel, the facilities are excellent. 

Scout tips

  • The studios are large but do not have any cooking facilities.
  • If you want slope-side views, don’t choose a King room – as most face other buildings.
  • A $30 per day resort fee will be charged on check out, which covers Wi-Fi, all facilities and a return transfer to Aspen Airport.
  • Parking in winter costs $30 for a full week for self parking close by, or $20 per day for valet parking.

SCOUT REVIEW

There’s a reason why so many people around the world love their Starbucks coffee – a Double Shot Grande Caramel Latte tastes the same regardless of whether you’re in Chicago or Queenstown – so you always know what you’re going to get. The same principle can be applied to hotel chains – you know you can always expect the same level of service and comfort wherever you go, which is a nice thing to be able to rely on in the often unpredictable world of travel.

With this in mind, the new Westin in Snowmass is sure to be a hit. It recently opened for the 12/13 winter season, and it upholds the quality standard we’ve come to expect from the Westin brand. For those who’ve never had the pleasure, this means Heavenly Beds, Heavenly Showers, great service, great food and excellent 5 star facilities.

Westin Snowmass opened after a $47 million makeover of the previous property, Silvertree. The place was completely gutted, leaving not a trace of the old hotel. The only thing that remained the same was its excellent slope-side location, which means that getting on your skis in the morning is as easy as taking five steps out the door.

The Snowmass ski school base is just a short ride down the Skittles gondola. The hotel is also quite close to Snowmass Mall just below, and Snowmass village a little further down – which should satisfy those looking for a wide variety of shops, restaurants, bars and cafes.

And if you feel like venturing a little further afield, Aspen’s RFTA (Roaring Fork Transportation Authority) shuttle bus leaves conveniently from just near the front doors of the hotel, so the three other mountains and Aspen village are only ever a short bus ride away.

Unfortunately, the views from the rooms aren’t always great. Some rooms enjoy premier views of the slopes, while others provide an outlook over the mall and hills beyond. And many of the King bedrooms face other buildings, which obviously isn’t ideal. So if you have your heart set on mountain views, be prepared to pay for it.

That said, after a full day of skiing, shopping and enjoying an apres drink or two, it’s unlikely that you’ll end up spending much time in your room. 

Who should stay here

Westin Snowmass would be suited to families and couples who are seeking the creature comforts of Westin’s luxury brand, with easy access to the Snowmass slopes.
