From the outside, the ornate, carved-wood, fringed Austria Hof (924 Canyon Blvd., 866/662-6668, www.austriahof.com , $170–195) might be a ski hotel tucked into a crevice of the Alps. But on the inside, you’ll find the most stylish American appointments. Peaceful sea-green motel rooms—even those with a king bed and a spa bathtub—can be rented for under $200 per night.
If you’ve got a larger party or a desire to cook your own meals, check out the one- and two-bedroom condo options. Austria Hof’s location adjacent to the Canyon Lodge and the Village gondola make it a great winter ski or summer mountain bike base camp. In the evenings, head down to the restaurant and bar for some hearty German food and drink. Or if you prefer, slip into a swimsuit and enjoy the views from the large outdoor spa.
