I went with a trip with the family. We had six people and stayed comfortably in the two bedroom suite. There is a sofa bed in the living room. One bedroom had two twin beds, and the other had a queen, and an ensuite bathroom. The beds were fairly high up off the floor which I didn't like that much. I found my bed (the twin) relatively comfortable.
The two bathrooms were average looking although a bit dated in looks. The kitchen and the open layout with tall ceilings were the highlight. Kitchen had granite counter tops, stone tile floors and oak cabinets. It was great to have a kitchen with all the appliances (microwave, oven, dishwasher, standard fridge) to prepare meals for a large group, instead of eating out each meal.
We stayed in the 500 level premier suite which is on the top floor. Note that the entrance to your suite is located on the fourth floor, and you are required to walk up a staircase with about twenty stairs to your suite from the door entrance. The premier suite has two balconies. One had an unspectacular view of the trees, but the other gave us a view of the mountains and the golf driving range. The balcony had chairs and a small table. It is a great place to BBQ, which we did for one meal.
We found everything about our stay enjoyable except the extra charges. First there was the $17 charge PER vehicle. Since we drove in two cars this was $34 plus tax for one night! Secondly they charge you for internet use at a rate of $4.95 per 24 hour period. Talk about nickel and diming the customers!
