Luxury Watch: Edible Amenities

Move over minibar; a whole new lavish in-room taste temptation has arrived. Across the mountain west, many of our favorite resorts are offering deluxe and delectable comfort food to sweeten your suite.

Vail: The Four Seasons Resort & Residences rolls out the Bourbon Barrel Welcome. Atop a slab of unfinished slate emblazoned with a chalk greeting, a St. Bernard Oak Barrel of local Breckenridge Distillery Bourbon awaits, along with elegant Manhattan glasses and house-made maple bacon popcorn.

Deer Valley: The Montage offers a turndown service to dream about. The resort’s acclaimed Executive Pastry Chef, Raymond Lammers, and his team lovingly craft a different truffle flavor for each day of the week and leave the jewel-like confections (pictured above) beside your bed.

Park City: The Waldorf-Astoria spoils guests with a scrumptious alpine bedtime treat. Executive Chef Gelas recreates the macaroons of his hometown, Boege, France, in a peaked, mountain-shaped cookie echoing Utah’s surrounding Wasatch Mountains.

Beaver Creek: The Park Hyatt’s “Sweet Suites” welcome first-night guests with an in-room ice cream machine and all the fixin’s. Subsequent nights feature hand-delivered “sweets” that might include hot chocolate, hot toddies, resort credit at the Allegria Spa or a trip to the candy bar located in the resort’s café.

Lake Tahoe: The Hyatt Regency knows the key to warming the hearts of guests in their newly renovated cottages: waffles! Lakefront rooms are equipped with waffle irons and a recipe from the resort chef, along with all the necessary ingredients and toppings for a happy start to the day.
