Crème de la Crème: The Hyatt At Beaver Creek

Crème de la Crème: The Hyatt At Beaver Creek

Beaver Creek, Colorado
Beaver Creek is about decadence with a purpose. The Hyatt, Beaver Creek's centerpiece hotel, perfectly defines that purpose.

As I kick back in an overstuffed sofa beneath the giant antler chandelier in the Lobby Bar, my eyes follow the massive stone fireplaces past rough-hewn timber to the cathedral ceilings. Wrapped in Western comfort, I fantasize that this is my living room. I dream that my ski boots will always be pre-heated in the morning, and that the encyclopedic concierge-who answers any question, arranges my every whim and checks the bambino into Camp Hyatt for an hour or two of peace-is moving back to New York with me. Everything at the Hyatt inspires lingering, be that in the marble tub of a spacious room, watching ice skaters from the Overlook Room or making s'mores around the outdoor firepit. And just when I couldn't imagine feeling any more relaxed, I realize that what I really need is a Japanese Mint Oil Wrap at the Allegria Spa. The Feng Shui-inspired world of soft light, soothing music and waterfalls bestows all the treatments you deserve-or Pilates and push-ups with a trainer, if you must. Why end the decadence there, when the perfect ending to the perfect day is only a sushi roll away at Patina?

LOCATION The beginner lift is an easy snowball's toss from the Hyatt's terrace, and Centennial Express is a pole and a skate away. Eagle airport is 20 miles away, Denver International Airport, about 110 miles (two hours).
DETAILS There are 275 rooms, including 24 Executive King Rooms and five suites. Southwest meets Pacific Rim at Patina, and the Crooked Hearth offers family fare. The Double Diamond Deli packs picnics to go and McCoy's Slopeside offers skiers a cafeteria and outdoor grill. Allegria Spa has a full menu of body treatments, plus gym and an outdoor lap pool.
DIGITS Rates run $225-$740. Reservations: 800-554-9288 or 970-949-1234;
