There are a few ski-in, ski-out places in Steamboat, but for the most part you will have to utilize the free shuttle from the base area to access most of the hotels.
We have stayed at a couple of the hotels in Steamboat but particularly liked the Steamboat Grand (pictured above).
The Steamboat Grand is not ski-in, ski-out, but it is within a very short distance from the mountain (directly across the street, actually) so you don’t have to take the shuttle. They also offer free ski and snowboard storage right at the base, which was perfect! No carrying your equipment to the mountain and back each day.
The accommodations were very nice, Our room had a small kitchen, double sinks in the bathroom, and a living area, which makes traveling with children so much easier.
As with most hotels, they also offer roll-away cribs for families traveling with babies. And come on, just look at that view from our window!
