Bottom Line

The upper-middle-range Marriot’s Mountain Valley Lodge at Breckenridge is within walking distance of downtown Breckenridge and a short drive to many attractions. With a view of the mountains, the heated outdoor pool and four hot tubs are a guest favorite, though the fitness center is impressive as well. It may be a large, impersonal hotel, but it’s comprehensive in features that encourage camaraderie such as a family-friendly game room, a sundeck with grills, and a lounge room with a pool table and board games, though there's no restaurant on-site. The 111 guest rooms are homey and modern with flat-screen TVs, full kitchens, and private balconies, though they lack air-conditioning. Travelers might also want to consider the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Breckenridge, which has similar rates and offers a restaurant and breakfast buffet.

Scene

Lodge-like chain hotel that caters to couples and families

Marriott’s Mountain Valley Lodge at Breckenridge is housed in a large lodge-style building with sloping roofs. Between the buildings are various footpaths that lead to a bridge that crosses Maggie Pond. Interiors are cozy, with a stone-floored lobby that has a wooden ceiling and crimson-colored accents like area rugs and patterned armchairs providing seating in front of large windows that illuminate the space with sunlight. A birch tree branch arrangement acts as an attractive partition between the lobby and a small business center, while a vintage-style popcorn machine and a table with pitchers of refreshments are a welcoming touch, though guests have noted that messes near the machine remain throughout the day. Mountain scene paintings are found throughout the hotel, and colorful carpets festooned with tree or flower designs are placed in the hallways and near the elevator. The property mainly attracts couples, though families are common guests too and utilize the game room or lounge areas.

Family fun can be had an eight-minute drive away at the Breckenridge Ski Resort, which has the Gold Runner Alpine Coaster and the TenMile Flyer Zipline. Breckenridge Golf Club is a 13-minute drive away.

Rooms

Homey rooms with full kitchens, some with balconies, but no air-conditioning

Rooms feature pleasant, contemporary decor with a neutral color palette that includes light gray carpets, cream-hued walls, and wooden furniture accented by orange couches and striped armchairs as well as artwork depicting forest scenes and trees. Some items in the rooms appear dated, however, like the burnt orange bed skirts and granite countertops. All rooms have full kitchens with microwaves, refrigerators, coffeemakers, ovens, dishwashers, cutlery, plates, and pots. Other amenities include flat-screen TVs, and some rooms have balconies (some with mountain views), though there's no air-conditioning (fans and humidifiers are provided). Full housekeeping services are usually provided during mid-stay, though the option of daily services is available. Villas offer more space than Studios and have separate living rooms with couches. Bathrooms are decent in size and offer plenty of storage space thanks to large granite-topped vanities and several drawers. They include shower/tub combos and hairdryers.
