This is a big one ... The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa in Avon at Beaver Creek Mountain has been honored as the "Top Resort, Mainland U.S." by Conde Nast Traveler in its 2010 Readers' Choice Awards. More than 25,000 Conde Nast Traveler readers voted on more than 10,000 properties and destinations worldwide in the annual survey which is featured in the November issue of the magazine, currently on newsstands.
In 2009, the new resort was named to Conde Nast Traveler's "Hot List 2009" as one of the 140 hottest new resorts worldwide.
The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa has also been honored with the AAA Four Diamond Award for 2011. The AAA Four Diamond designation is given to less than 4 percent of the more than 31,000 properties approved by AAA.
The Westin Riverfront features 210 guest residences ranging from studio suites to three-bedroom condominiums. It is connected to Beaver Creek Mountain by the Riverfront Express Gondola and offers ski valet service, on-site ski equipment rental, a fly-fishing outfitter, a deli shop, a Westin Kids Club, a Business Center, the Riverfront Club fitness center, Spa Anjalii, a saline-based outdoor pool and three hot tubs overlooking the Eagle River ... and my personal favorite, Restaurant Avondale.
