Keystone Hotels Versus Keystone Condominiums
When you are planning your trip to Keystone Resort, Colorado you are probably wondering where to stay. If you are used to staying in hotels when you ski you might wonder, "Where are the hotels in Keystone, Colorado?" There are just a few hotels in Keystone Resort; most of the lodging that is available is privately owned condominium style vacation rentals. Privately operated property management companies in Keystone rent these condominiums directly from the owner to you the intelligent traveler. They offer affordable Keystone Lodging with the same professional service you would receive when you stay in a hotel. They offer rentals all over Keystone and depending on what you want in your trip we can recommend the best part of Keystone for your vacation. Choose from a variety of vacation rental properties including smaller hotel-like studio condo all the way up to single or multiple bedroom condos, townhomes and even luxury, large private homes. What is the difference between Keystone Hotels and Keystone Condominiums? [caption id="attachment_30635" align="alignnone" width="600"] Example of a Keystone Resort Hotel Room[/caption] You can rent these condominiums just like you would rent a room at a hotel. You may book online or over the phone, get a confirmation emailed to you, and check in at a front desk. The main difference between a hotel room and a condominium is that you get a lot more bang for your buck in a Keystone condo than you do in Keystone hotels. Instead of just getting a coffee pot and a hair dryer in one small space in a hotel room, you can get a full kitchen, more square footage, and separate living rooms that are far superior to your basic Keystone hotels. The best part is that you can usually get a better price, too when you stay with an independent lodging company, such as SummitCove Lodging. The vacation rental properties are individually owned by folks just like you that want a place to stay when they visit Keystone, so the properties will have all the things that you need when you travel. The owners are proud of their properties and take greater care than a basic hotel room. Staying in a Keystone condo is going to be similar in a many ways to staying in Keystone Hotels. You will have all the things that you need, such as sheets, pillows, towels, blankets, pots and pans, dishes, silverware, toilet paper, shampoo, conditioner and more when you visit Keystone Resort. Many travelers are looking for a cheaper and more affordable way to travel. Now that gas prices are higher and lift tickets are getting more expensive, why should you pay for a $18 chili bowl on the mountain, too? Taking your family out to lunch on the ski slopes can cost upwards of $100! Save that money and have lunch in your slopeside condo instead! You will have the ability to prepare some of your meals in the condo, with a full kitchen, which you really can't do at a Keystone hotel. You might not even be able to hold onto leftovers inside of a hotel room! Another difference between staying in a condominium will be the housekeeping, unlike Keystone hotels that waste a ton of water and use harsh chemicals, we know that visitors to the mountains understand that hotels waste too much. We think that if you can stay at your home and use the same towel for a couple of days, you can do the same on vacation! Keystone vacation condos are ready and stocked with clean towels and fresh sheets on the beds upon your arrival. You can opt-in to have housekeepers clean your condo every day or once during your stay for a nominal fee, but most guests appreciate the fact were doing our small part to preserve the beauty of our Keystone Mountains without the daily cleanings. You'll love having room to spread out and give each guest some room to breathe, without being crammed into 400 square feet with all of your luggage and ski gear. At a condo, someone can watch their favorite show in the bedroom, while the other family members enjoy a movie out in the living room. Enjoy each other's company with a board game at the dining table after a wonderful family meal together. You'll love all of the additional space you have inside a vacation rental condo!
