We’ve been pretty vocal about our growing displeasure for packages and offerings designed more to gain publicity than they are to attract and benefit guests. These, for example. And now some say the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek’s new “sleep ambassador” program is right up there with the best of them.
Us? We’re skeptical by nature at this point. But that’s not fair – everyone deserves their day in court. So we tracked down the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek’s Sleep Ambassador herself, Nancy Rothstein, for some pillow talk.
HC: Let’s get right to it. Your campaign with Park Hyatt Beaver Creek claims hotels are in “the business of sleep.” Do you really believe that? As world travelers, we must say, rarely do we choose a hotel based on its sleep-inducing powers. And some destinations just don’t let you sleep. Vegas, for example.

Ski at Beaver Creek Mountain Resort in Colorado, and it's hard to deny there's any hotel better situated than the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek. Other Beaver Creek ski lodges and hotels can promise "ski in ski out" access, but none have Park Hyatt's backyard right at the base of the mountain, not to mention a front yard right in Beaver Creek Village.
You might expect uber exclusiveness given the hotels pristine location, but we recently discovered something unexpectedly communal about Park Hyatt Beaver Creek; free gourmet s'mores.
It was about 4 pm and we were coming in from our last run as the slopes were closing for the day. The sun was already on the move to set and we couldn't help but to notice the glowing fire pits at the Park Hyatt, just steps away from the Buckaroo Gondola. Why not wander over? It was far too picturesque and inviting to pass up.
The last time we checked in on the Westin Riverfront Hotel in Beaver Creek/Avon, Colorado we were really skeptical that the hotel would open in August. And guess what, our Magic 8 Ball skills were so dead on.
The hotel is now set to open on October 15, 2008. So that sorta stinks but the good news is the rooms are fairly cheap at $129 a night ($165) with taxes. And that's for a studio suite which includes a king bed and pull-out sofa that sleeps two, along with a kitchenette.
But buyer beware: This is an internet rate, fully paid, no cancellations allowed. Thus make sure you really want to stay here!

Visitors to Vail Beaver Creek Resort Properties in Beaver Creek, Colo. this ski season may not have to hit the slopes at all. That's because the resort properties are offering guests a free Sony PlayStation Portable system when they book a stay at one of the resorts. This sort of takes care of a Christmas present for a gamer in your family doesn't it?
The deal lasts until April 13 and room rates vary based according to properties. At The Pines Lodge, the PSP package starts at $175 per night with a seven-night minimum stay. Other hotels include the Inn at Beaver Creek and Trapper's Cabin as well as luxury condominiums -- Bachelor Gulch Village, SaddleRidge at Beaver Creek, St. James Place, and Market Square at Beaver Creek.
Remember that big spa renovation we told you about at the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek? Well, looks like they managed to get things done in time for ski season: The renovation more or less wrapped up on December 22. A quick call over to the the spa confirmed that work is done even though the property is "still tweaking a few things, after hours of course."
First and foremost, that means a spa that's gone from 15,000 square feet to 30,000. There are now 23 treatment rooms, so you should be able to get in for a deep tissue massage even if all of The Real Housewives of Orange County drop in. The Aquas Sanitas "water sanctuary" is also a must. It's a sort of latter-day Roman bath with mineral pools and a steam room. Could do the trick after a day on the slopes, since Beaver Creek isn't known for its ski doctors.
