Let us count the reasons we love the fall in the Vail Valley: Golden peak turns gold (and sometimes orange and red); flannel shirts are back in style, snow glazes the Gore, and of course, the deals. Anyone who's visited Vail and Beaver Creek between Labor Day and Opening Day knows that it's one of the best times to save, and explore the valley with fewer people around. But where to stay? Consider these six hotel steals.

The Westin

 Off-season pricing includes a spin on the 2-for-1 special: a two-bedroom suite for the price of a standard single room. From $239 through November 20., 970-790-6000

The Lion

A stay in one of Lionshead's newest luxury residences (one to five-bedroom condos) can be had for 20 percent off through September 30, where big views of the golden slopes of Vail Mountain beckon., 866-282-7056

The Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch

The Ritz's Mountain Mindfulness Package includes perks like scheduled wellness classes, a couple's recreation activity, two 60-minute spa treatments, and a visit to the oxygen bar. From $429 nightly through November 18., 970-748-6200

The Sebastian

 This Vail Village luxury hotel offers 25% off nightly rates for guests who book a stay Friday through Saturday, and 30% off for guests who book Monday through Thursday. A $25 Bloom Spa credit will help you begin to unwind., 970-331-0698

Vail Racquet Club Mountain Resort

Fall rates start at $136 per night for a junior one-bedroom suite at East Vail's family friendly residences and tennis club, with some of the valley's most pristine foliage hikes just steps beyond the back door., 970-476-4840

The Bunkhouse 

Offering a group dorm berth for less than $60 a night (breakfast included), Minturn's funky boutique hostel already boasts some of the lowest rates in the valley, but if you feeling lucky, enter a selfie in the hostel's "Pic of the Week" contest for a chance to win a two night stay, on the (bunk)house; available throughout the fall., 970-827-4165
