Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa at Beaver Creek

On September, the Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa opened their doors. This luxurious Hotel, which combines visions of both environmental- and pedestrian-friendly design, will be the centerpiece of the new Riverfront Village in Beaver Creek. Nestled on the banks of the Eagle River at the base of Beaver Creek Resort, this full-service condo hotel features 210 residence-style accommodations ranging from spacious studio suites to three-bedrooms complete with custom designed contemporary furnishings, large kitchens, fireplaces, LCD televisions and more. The cornerstone of a $500 million resort development also features a signature restaurant by acclaimed chef Thomas Salamunovich, and for a total relaxation experience a 23,000 square foot Spa, Fitness, and Wellness center offering mountain-inspired treatments and onsite physicians. As the premiere "green" spa in the Rockies, Spa Anjali carries only environmentally-friendly products, including Amala Beauty and Anakiri.
The resort offers easy access to Beaver Creek Mountain via the Riverfront Express Gondola located right outside the resort's lobby door. The lift delivers skiers and snowboarders to world-class terrain in less than three minutes.
Developed by East West Partners, The Westin Riverfront was designed by the architectural firm of Hornberger & Worstell of San Francisco in conjunction with OZ Architecture in Boulder, Colorado. The interior was designed by internationally recognized leader Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, LLP.
The Westin Riverfront is being built "green" from the bottom up and is on track to become Colorado’s first high-end hotel to achieve LEED certification. The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System encourages and accelerates global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices through the creation and implementation of universally understood and accepted tools and performance criteria. LEED certification provides independent, third-party verification that a building project meets the highest green building and performance measures. All certified projects receive a LEED plaque, which is the nationally recognized symbol demonstrating that a building is environmentally responsible, profitable and a healthy place to live and work.
Westin Hotels & Resorts, with more than 150 hotels and resorts in more than 31 countries and territories, is owned by Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide.
