Westin Riverfront in Avon, Colorado Opens
AVON, Colo. - September 24, 2008 - The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa, Vail Valley’s newest “green” resort, opens today. The upper-upscale resort will awaken guests’ senses with breathtaking views of Beaver Creek Mountain, unparalleled access to the Eagle River and signature Westin services and amenities.
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, Colo. The interior was designed by internationally recognized leader Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, LLP.
The Westin Riverfront is on track to be the first upscale resort in
Colorado to achieve coveted LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building
Council. Unique “green” programs include guest recycling stations on every
floor, preferred parking for hybrid vehicles, an on-site organic garden
and the protection of open space through the donation of a five-acre park
to the Town of Avon.
The Westin Riverfront is connected to Beaver Creek Mountain via the Riverfront Express Gondola, which delivers skiers and snowboarders to world-class terrain in less than three minutes. Other amenities include a ski valet, on-site ski rental and fly fishing shops, a 25-meter outdoor lap pool and three oversized riverside hot tubs. The hotel’s 4,000 square feet of meeting space features floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing mountain views.
The Westin Riverfront’s 23,000 square foot Spa Anjali offers signature spa treatments inspired by healing traditions of the mountains. Spa Anjali has 14 treatment rooms, a full-service salon and a complete fitness center with yoga, spin and Pilates classes and extensive exercise equipment. As the premiere “green” spa in the Rockies, Spa Anjali carries only environmentally-friendly products, including Amala Beauty and Anakiri.
Restaurant Avondale, led by acclaimed chef Thomas Salamunovich, will
delight diners with its West Coast-inspired seasonal menu that focuses
on purity of ingredients and simplicity of preparation.
