... these a lot so I kept skiing them until I quit at 2pm. My legs were tired at that point. I spent the rest of the afternoon looking in the shops at the base and sitting in the hot tub.

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Steamboat Resort Steamboat Springs
We recently stayed at the Sheraton for Spring Break in March. We couldn't have picked a better location to the slopes, ski lifts, etc. Everyone was very helpful and friendly from the front desk employees to ski instructors, and even anyone walking around. It is very family friendly, which is what we were looking for exactly. We were having a snowball fight with about 6 other families at one point and time!
We stayed here as family with 2 small children and the location was fabulous, right on the slopes and above the ski-school. The front desk was helpful. The real disappointment were the rooms. The rooms were dark, without any 'frills', no character at all. We felt like we were in a bunker. A very 1970's one at that. The TV channel didn't cater for appropriate chldren viewing - (this isnt me being a fussy parent, by the way, but there was nothing for under 7's.) Our sheets also had blood on them!
Very good but not much character
It's what you'd expect from a well run modern hotel - very clean with decent service, good ameneties (eg ski rental & demo centre on site), large room with balcony and a reasonable bathroom, none of it with a huge amount of character. It's also quite expensive for what it is but then it is in an excellent position. Don't bother with breakfast there, go to Wired instead. I would certainly stay here again but then I wouldnt go to Steamboat Springs again because it's not that exciting unless you're a family, prefer Breckenridge (down to earth but with much more character) or Beaver Creek (smaller and much more expensive). There are very good restaurants in Steamboat e.g. Butcher Shop, Cafe Diva, Riggio's and we're pretty fussy!
Location can't be beat
After staying a few miserable nights at a condo 5 minutes away from the hill, we stayed the remaining nights at the Sheraton. It is the best place to stay on the hill. The location is awsome. They store your ski's, you walk out the door and your at the gondola. The outdoor heated pool was a hit with our kids. (Bring your robes, they provide one, and it is chilly getting back to your room.) There is Starbucks coffee in your room, as well as a Starbucks shop.
The bedding is top notch, with down comforters and pillows. There was an empty fridge as well, which was great to have for the kids. Our kids also enjoyed the game room. Great place to stay!
I stayed in this hotel in early February 2005 and was very pleased. The room was nice and very clean. The staff could not have been nicer. Upon our arrival we had several people helping with our bags and check in. The man who brought our bags to our room gave us great advice on where to eat, drink, book ski lessons, etc. Very helpful.
The best thing about this hotel is the location. You are right on the mountain and can walk to everything. The location of the ski rentals and storage is on the ground floor and the staff here was just as helpful. There are plenty of activites to do in and around Steamboat but you rarely have to leave the hotel to have a good time. There are places to eat just a few steps away. Well worth the visit.
We stayed at the Sheraton from January 14-19th, 2004 and enjoyed the friendliness of the hotel staff. The hotel is only about 30 yards from the entrance to the Steamboat gondola. The Sheraton has a ski valet right at the foot of the hotel, so at the end of the day you can ski right up to the front door, take off your skis and hand them to the nice young folks working the ski storage counter.
From the time we arrived 12/15/04, to the time we left, our stay was above and beyond. Our room at the morning side condos had a magnificant view of the mountain. While 6 of our family members chose to ski, Grandma was able to stay by the fire inside the room and put puzzles together and write Christmas cards while watching our grand daughter out the window on the bunny slope and preview lift.
Beautiful one bedroom suite at the Sheraton Steamboat
We recently stayed at this Sheraton in a one bedroom suite. The living room where our children slept was huge and very pleasantly furnished.
The new Sweet Sleeper Sheraton beds are very comfortable. Steamboat is a wonderful vacation spot and the Sheraton's location is ideal. The only criticism is that the cleaning staff should show more initiative: there were jelly beans and an empty cup of coffee left in a corner of one of the elevators for at least 24 hours.
Recently stayed at this Sheraton property (Aug 2003). Steamboat Springs is wonderful, the location of the Sheraton is hard to beat, but while the rooms have supposedly been recently rennovated, they are on par with what you would expect for a winter facility that caters to families and budget skiers. The most disappointing aspect of the accomodation was the room -- I was told that it had a limited view, and it was limited by the HVAC unit that was three feet from the railing of the room's balcony. Besides the obstructing the view, the noise was not pleasant. The situation was only made when I asked for a different room, and even offered to pay for an upgrade. I was told that there were no other rooms available and that I would be wait listed. I was obviously misled as I watch and heard people come in off the street without reservations who were able to book rooms that didn't have a "limited view". If you don't care about the room, the Sheraton is a great place. If you want a nice room, stay across the street at the Steamboat Grand.
My 10 year old daughter and I visited this Sheraton resort during the busy New Years Holiday and found it to be more than what we expected. Having been to ski resorts many times during peak seasons, we were prepared for slow service and crowd problems but were pleasanly surprised at how well the Sheraton handled our stay. Our room was a standard hotel, but nice. The best part is the location; just next to the gondola and 3 other lifts, several eateries (including the ones in the hotel), and just across from the cental transportation center. We literally rented equipment and skied out of the ski shop door. We felt very safe and had everything we needed at our fingertips. The pool and hot tubs were great, as well as the on-site Starbucks Coffee Shop. The staff were friendly and eager to please.
