Capitol Peak Lodge, A Destination by Hyatt Residence REVIEW - MASTER THREAD

We have stayed at the Capital Peak Lodge in Snowmass Village twice now over extended periods. Once in a one bedroom and just recently in a two bedroom unit. While there are a few quirks checking in, like check-in which is done at the Stonebridge Inn up the road or figuring out the parking space, this property by far has the best location in Snowmass Village. The building is literally right across from the Elk Camp gondola. Aside from that the units, while not 5 stars, are in really nice shape and the building in general is well maintained. You essentially stay in someone's condo that is booked through the Hyatt app. Out of all the Destinations properties in Snowmass (I believe there are 6 that they run) The Capital Peak Lodge is the best followed by Woodrun Place which does not have anywhere near the prime location of Capital Peak. Also keep in mind that if your traveling to Snowmass in the summer most of the Destinations properties do not have AC. The Capital Peak Lodge does. Below are some photos from both trips, we really love staying here during our visits to Snowmass...

Nice review. I will agree with your assessment about the location. However, the Base Village area is still a ghost town with few amenities within walking distance. Hopefully that will change as the real estate offices leave for more useful retail.
I will defend Woodrun Place as being more accessible to Snowmass Mall and for Thursday night Summer concerts on Fanny Hill. Units there have reserved parking and separate entrances.

Thanks! I just spent a month in the village area, it's definitely more lively than when i visited the last time. Aside from events the village area had each weekend, there are 3 or 4 solid restaurants plus your only a 2 minute walk from the Village gondola while staying at Capital Peak. Location wise, it is night and day better than Woodrun even getting to the mall.

Actually, if you were willing to hike backcountry, you could have skied in July out there. No thanks on that though!
