Planning a one-night stand in Breck in a couple of weeks. NOT what it sounds like, wait for it ... with my wife, two college age kids, and possibly a handful of their friends. Any reason NOT to stay at either "Marriot's Mountain Valley Lodge at Breckenridge" (655 Columbine Drive, Breckenridge, CO 80424) or Doubletree Hilton at 550 Village Road, Breckenridge, CO 80424)? Any other recommendations?
Breckenridge is totally new to me, and big enough to be overwhelming, especially for a quick visit. Concept is to drive up early Saturday a.m.; kids and I will ski; wife is a non-skier but will be happy to relax, read, and run or go for a walk around town.
If it makes a difference, one of the kids and I will be seeking out relatively challenging terrain -- ie, happy to hike from lifts for a bit for steeps, trees, ungroomed, etc. I'd just as soon be near the good stuff, not several lifts and traverses away. I think the Marriott is nearest Peak 8; Doubletree claims to be "directly across the street from Peak 9".
Thanks in advance for any input on this.
