Hotels and Vacation Rentals
One of the first decisions you make when planning a ski vacation is where to stay. One of the first questions you will need to answer is do I want to stay in a hotel or a vacation rental (condo, private home, etc)? And what's the difference anyway?
Generally, there are a few key differences between a hotel and a vacation rental.
Hotels are a great option for couples or small families and usually offer amenities that are appealing including:
- Daily maid service
- On-site front desk
- Valet & bell services
- On-site Restaurant
- Pool and/or hot tub
- Fitness Center
- Wi-Fi & Business Center
Vacation Rental Myths De-bunked
Myth #1 - Vacation Rentals are too expensive.
The Truth - Vacation rentals are often more affordable than hotels. There may be additional costs such as cleaning fees, but the rental manager should make you aware of any additional fees prior to booking. Often, the savings from being able to comfortably prepare meals and dine in the rental instead of eating out for every meal, outweigh the difference in cost.
Myth #2 - Vacation rentals only work if you have a large group and are staying for a week.
The Truth - The vacation rental lodging at all of our ski resorts includes options ranging in size from studios to large, private homes. A studio condominium with a small kitchen may be a better option for some travelers who are more comfortable with a little more space than a traditional hotel room. Also, there are options for vacation rental properties that do not require guests to stay for a minimum number of nights. It is true that sometimes you will have to pay cleaning fees for shorter stays, but again, sometimes the cost of not having to eat out as often still makes this a more cost effective option.
Myth #3 - Vacation Rentals don't have the amenities I am looking for.
The Truth - Amenities vary quite a bit by property so this will require a bit more research. All of the Official Lodging Properties of Breckenridge Ski Resort offer the follow amenities:
- On-site Front Desk
- Hot Tub
Myth #4 - Vacation Rentals are hard to book.
The Truth - Here at BreckResorts.com, you can book your condo online and your reservation is guaranteed. If you don't find the information you need online, our lodging experts are available at 888-400-9590.
