The gondola to the mountain is just outside the lobby. A block away from the casinos. The rooms are average - similar to all Marriott timeshare hotels. This is probably the least friendly Marriott I have stayed in. The staff at the kids' club made up for the unfriendliness of the staff. The children's activities are good, although the hotel itself does not have a resort feel. Small pool, not a lot of extras. It is good enough but not a wow experience.
