The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa is a true resort and much more than just a hotel.

The Resort’s design is modern and sophisticated with a touch of epic mountain style. A large fireplace divides the room providing some privacy to the sitting areas on either side. I felt drawn to this beautiful lobby area and already looked forward to spending time there once I got settled in.
Across the room from the front desk and check-in area are tall glass doors that lead to a wide deck facing Beaver Creek Mountain. Large firepits and seating are placed on the deck to enjoy cocktails or coffee while taking in the majestic views. I’ll definitely be spending time there during my stay!

Mountain-inspired Guestrooms & Suites
The guestrooms and suites at the Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa are beautifully designed and have an abundance of space. I settled into my One-Bedroom Suite and immediately felt at home. The One-Bedroom Suite at the Westin Riverfront has a beautiful full kitchen, a dining table, a spacious living room area, and a gas fireplace! It’s very comfortable and perfect if you like to enjoy extra space to relax and rest.

The Pool, Spa, and Athletic Club
The Athletic Club at the Westin Riverfront in Avon is not like any hotel gym you’ve ever seen. The Athletic Club is a state-of-the-art facility with group exercise classes daily and all the best fitness equipment ready for you to use during your stay. The fitness schedule varies each week and they typically offer yoga, Pilates, cycling, and movement classes.
I stopped into the Athletic Club shortly after I arrived to check it out to plan out my workout for the following day.
The Athletic Club at the Westin Riverfront has a number of Peloton bikes and even a Peloton Treadmill! Also, they are equipped with weight training machines, cardio equipment, plenty of places to stretch and do floor exercises, and very nice locker room areas.
I had a great workout in the Athletic Club at the Westin in Beaver Creek! I spent some time on one of the treadmills and then used some of the weights. I also spent a little time doing some stretches on a mat before heading back to my room. What a terrific way to start the day.
A stay at Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa is not complete without a day at Spa Anjali. Spa Anjali is one of my favorite spa experiences in the mountains! The spa menu at Spa Anjali is extensive and includes access to the sauna and steam room inside the locker rooms.
Deep Tissue massages, Hot Stone treatments, and organic exfoliations are just a few options on the spa menu that are truly fabulous!
Here you can read through all of the wonderful treatments available on the Spa Anjali Menu. My favorite spa treatments at Spa Anjali are the 80-minute Custom Massage and the HydraFacial. In addition, I typically add on a couple of enhancements such as a foot treatment.
Spa Anjali also offers manicures and pedicures and a full hair salon. At the salon, you can choose a haircut, color, style, or blowout. Plus, many other options to choose from.

Stoke and Rye is Richard Sandoval’s new restaurant serving classic cuisine with a creative fresh approach. Slow-roasted and smoking techniques showcase the true flavors of America’s great dishes. Steaks, oysters, seafood towers, and Colorado trout are on the menu along with a fabulous pastry program.
The spacious dining room of Stoke & Rye is bright and open with a rustic design that embraces the natural surrounding beauty of the Vail Valley. The expansive patio is my favorite section of Stoke & Rye! Firepits and a full-service outdoor bar create a social space that is super inviting!
Stoke & Rye is pleased to offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner. During the summer and winter seasons, Stoke & Rye’s breakfast is an impressive buffet that includes housemade granola, Smoked Salmon, Sliced Fresh Fruits, Applewood Smoked Bacon and Scrambled Eggs, and delicious griddle options.
The deck at Stoke & Rye is a special and lovely spot to enjoy the fresh air, and mountain views any time of day. A perfect place to socialize with friends and family.
If you’re looking for a quick breakfast before a long hike or day skiing, grab a bagel or delicious breakfast wrap from Riverfront Market. Sandwiches such as a Cubano or Caprese and more are on offer during lunchtime along with fresh fruit and a selection of chips.
Salads, soups, and bakery items are also available at Riverfront Market along with shelves of gourmet goods and choices.
I like to stop into Riverfront Market and pick up a few snacks for my room throughout my stay!

I enjoyed lunch and dinner both while sitting in The Lookout Bar! It was a perfect place to enjoy a delicious meal while also catching up on some work. I enjoyed conversation with the friendy bartenders and other folks sitting at the bar!
Enjoy a casual menu at the Westin Riverfront pool of Nachos, Salads, or something a little hardier from the Grill. A kids menu is available too, to enjoy while spending the day outside by the pool with the entire family!
