Entering the lobby of the Westin Riverfront, guests know they are in for a treat. Offering a massive fireplace, library and fantastic views, visitors revel in the majesty of the property. At only two years old, this resort is taking the area by storm, offering luxury amenities and phenomenal customer-service oriented staff.
The resort is horseshoe shaped, with an Olympic sized pool in the riverside courtyard. The only Olympic, outdoor, heated pool in the valley, guests and athletes alike enjoy the saline waters which use 80 percent less chemicals than standard pools. Three infinity hot tubs line the Eagle River and are saline-based as well.
210 residences make up the resort, offering a kids club, wellness center, Spa Anjali, marketplace, and Restaurant Avondale. The resort even has its own Riverfront Express gondola, which is free of charge, to take guests to the trails of Beaver Creek Ski Resort. The residences themselves include the acclaimed Westin Heavenly Shower and Heavenly Bed, as well as fireplaces, kitchens with dishwashers, fridges and fine finishes.
The Westin Riverfront is LEED Silver Certified, which means it meets and exceeds green building standards. Purifying and bottling their own water, growing produce, utilizing renewable resources for over 50 percent of their electricity and using recycled post consumer/industrial content for 10 percent of the building materials are all something to celebrate.
Currently, the Westin Riverfront is the only LEED Silver certified resort in Colorado and only ninth hotel in the United States to receive the esteemed certification.
Restaurant Avondale is off the main lobby at the resort. Internationally trained Chef and Owner Thomas Salamunovich is stirring up West coast inspired, market-driven foods which tantalize the tastebuds and delight the senses. Stop by for a local grilled Palisade Peach with prosciutto and greens from the garden or try the rushing river trout served with sweet corn, summer squash and wild rice. The hottest apr?s ski venue in the valley, it is a spot not to miss.
With yoga classes, day hikes, spa treatments and Heavenly Beds, the Westin Riverfront is perfect for any of Colorado's four seasons. Family and dog-friendly, it is a relaxing respite or an exciting adventure just waiting to be had.
