Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa at Beaver Creek Mountain was honored as the top resort in the United States in this year's Condé Nast Traveler reader's choice awards.

The Avon resort beat out Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach, Calif., Sanctuary at Kiawah Island, S.C., Inn at Spanish Bay in Pebble Beach, Calif., Stowe Mountain Lodge in Vermont, The Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel in Dana Point, Calif., The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Enchantment Resort in Sedona, Ariz., and California's Lodge at Pebble Beach and Montage Laguna Beach resorts (in that order).

Other resorts in the Vail area that made a strong showing include the Arrabelle at Vail Square, which tied for 25th, and the Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch, which Condé Nast readers ranked 29th.

The five-star Little Nell hotel in Aspen came in at 38th. The St. Regis Resort Aspen placed 62nd.

The Park Hyatt in Beaver Creek landed in the 76th spot. The Sonnenalp in Vail registered 88th.

Other resorts of note include the Wynn Las Vegas (tied for 10th place), the Bellagio in Las Vegas (13th), The Breakers in Palm Beach, Fla., (tied for 25th), the Stein Eriksen Lodge in Park City, Utah, (tied for 25th), The Biltmore Four Seasons in Santa Barbara, Calif. (33rd), Teton Mountain Lodge & Spa in Wyo. (54th), Lodge at Torrey Pines in La Jolla, Calif, (58th) and the Sundance Resort in Utah (58th).

Bob Trotter, the general manager at the two-year-old Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa, told Denver Post columnist Penny Parker that he was blown away by the ranking, and the publicity that followed.

"I'm walking on air in Beaver Creek right at the moment," Trotter told Parker on Thursday. "I saw (the Condé Nast Traveler announcement) live, and to tell you I was over-the-top excited would be an understatement. Any time you start your day with your resort receiving such an honor, and also having Matt Lauer on the 'Today' show say it, your day doesn't get any better than that."

Here's what Condé Naste wrote about the Westin:

“The Westin literally adds a new dimension to Beaver Creek, expanding the ski resort's sphere of luxury to the banks of the Eagle River (the Riverfront Express gondola whisks you to the Lower Beaver Creek Mountain lift in three minutes). Everything about this nine-story, 210-room Westin is oriented toward the site's stunning view of Beaver Creek Mountain, and despite its large footprint, it's done well enough to create a warm ski resort feel.”
