As with many things, balance is desired. A relaxing mountain retreat, combined with serious play serves all your vacation needs. The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa’s Swing and Spa package combines relaxing spa services from Spa Anjali, and eco-friendly accommodations, with a round of golf at one of the top-ranked courses in Colorado, the Red Sky Ranch & Golf Club.
Roughly a 3-hour drive from Colorado Springs, nestled on the banks of the Eagle River, the Westin Riverfront stands apart from other resort hotels in the area. The hotel is part of the town of Avon, instead of the Beaver Creek Resort, where familiar fare and shops are readily accessible for any needs. The hotel provides direct access to Eagle River for fly fishing, and gondola lift access to Beaver Creek. The location also affords ready access for golf and other outdoor recreation around the area.
The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa earned its Silver LEED Certification through its construction process and the numerous environmentally friendly practices it carries on today. The property was constructed using recycled and locally acquired materials, and reduced waste during the construction process. 50% of the hotel’s power of comes from renewable energy, including wind power. They have an in-house team dedicated to eco-friendly initiatives. Other staff use eco-friendly products and employ conservation practices to reduce water usage and pollution. Recycling bins can be found in all areas of the hotel. Incentives such as vouchers are available for those who defer towel and linen service each day to conserve water. Top to bottom, the Westin Riverfront is environmentally conscious and encourages its guest to be as well.
Having sampled many of the guest rooms in Westin hotels, I can tell you that rooms at the Westin Riverfront have the SICKEST(yes probably too old to describe it that way) views seen anywhere. Not saying it lightly either. As a snob for scenic views, the ones at the Westin Riverfront of Beaver Creek Mountain are ridiculously beautiful.
The saline pool almost feels like an ocean swim, and the infinity hot tubs have great views of the mountains. The fully equipped Riverfront Club fitness center gives you a great excuse to take a break from all that slacking off you’ve been doing. Hiking/biking trail runs along the banks of the Eagle River right next to the hotel. The property is also pet friendly and kid friendly with a daycare center.
All the elements (décor, the bed, bath products, robes, etc.) reflect the hotel’s philosophy of “relax, rejuvenate, and fulfill” with an eco-friendly mindset. Having it all sink in, it becomes very difficult to leave your room at all during your stay. The hotel has much more to offer, however, with fine dining at Restaurant Avondale, Spa Anjali, and a pair of golf packages with Red Sky Ranch and Golf Club.
