We went to Ortisei for a friend's wedding and otherwise may never have gone. We've been lucky enough to do A LOT of travelling and this hotel was phenomenal for families. It's a 5 star (honestly, they would be five star if not for the "kinder" rating) for parents and for children it is even better. They have thought of everything for kids from fun, to healthy food, to activites, to safety to bathing, changing and even monitors built into the room. The other HUGE perk for North Americans is the size of the rooms. They are much larger than the standard European rooms. Which is great with a toddler. The spa, restaurants, views and service make it feel as though you've gone to a fancy hotel with your partner but the services for kids allows you to do that without the guilt of leaving your children. Plus you can enjoy watching them take it all in.
One very important feature for me is the internet and there is a business center and also free wireless throughout the hotel!
My only very small concern for people with older children is that not everyone is great with English. This is great for Italian and Germans but English isn't garunteed with staff, so if your kids are of speaking age, they may not want to be left all day if they don't have other english speaking kids. Siblings can be great for that though :)
