This Marriott lodge has mountain modern villas and rooms available for couples and families, all just 550 feet from the Quicksilver chairlift. That means you’re near everything you need, including downtown shopping and restaurants. Plus, this Marriott has a sports shop on-site where you can rent gear or store it as needed, plus an artisan workshop, billiards room, and activity center. We especially like that every room has a kitchen, which can make mealtime easier if you love to cook.
Welk Resorts Breckenridge: The Ranahan
$$$+ | 4 Star | New Luxury Resort | All-Suite Hotel | Hot Tubs/Pools/Family Games
First things first: this hotel is located north of downtown Breck, so you’ll need to use your own car or the free shuttle to get to town or the ski lifts. But this brand new property has already made a name for itself as a great place for families and even couples. You can use the hot tubs, grills, pools, shuffleboard games, indoor waterslide, Pelotons, fire pits, or book an adventure activity. You’ll love the tasteful mountain modern designs in this incredible hotel.
$$+ | Upscale B&B | Tasty Breakfast | Great for Couples
Looking for more intimate vibes in a place that’s not buzzing with commercialized resort life? Then the Fireside Inn is waiting for you. It’s an excellent little bed and breakfast in the heart of downtown Breckenridge. And it’s not the kind that overwhelms you with florals on every wall—it’s modern and chic with updated furnishings and minimal florals. The homemade breakfast and muffins are rave-worthy, which you can enjoy sitting at the fireplace in the common room.
One Ski Hill Place
$$$$+ | 4 Star | Ski-In & Ski-Out | Bowling Alley | On-Site Spa
This location is a true ski resort hotel. One Ski Hill Place is one of the closest resort hotels to several popular ski lifts, which makes it perfect for families who want total ski-in/ski-out convenience. Each suite (studios to three-bedrooms) has its own fireplace and washer/dryer unit, along with all the amenities of a full-service kitchen. And even though this hotel has almost everything you need, you can still head to downtown for shopping and dining. Just hop on the BreckConnect gondola and take a leisurely ride to town.
Hyatt Residence Club Breckenridge
$$+ | 2 Star | Downtown Location | Old West Style Vibes | Whirlpools and Heated Pool
This may not be the flashiest hotel on our list, but it’s a solid choice at a more affordable price. That also means it can book out quickly too, so don’t wait if you see an opening. This 2-star hotel has some cool perks like a concierge ready to help you book activities and make recommendations. And there’s also some limited room service available and a complimentary ski valet. Finally, you’re only a 20-minute walk from the closest chair lift.
$$$+ | 3 Star | Chic, Industrial Modern | Small Property | Award Winning | Pet Friendly
If you like chill, smaller properties with distinctive vibes, then you’ll love Gravity Haus, which recently won #1 hotel in Colorado by Conde Naste Traveler. This stunning boutique hotel is smack in the middle of all the action: four minutes from a chair lift and six minutes from downtown. They even have awesome amenities like the dry sauna or soaking tubs where you can relax the day away. But if you’re an adventurer, head to the third floor where the mysterious but totally real “Supertramp” waits to bounce you to new heights.

You’ll also find almost every suite has a small or full-size kitchen, which is so helpful for families.
