It's not quite ski-in, ski-out, but it's darn close. It was a short walk to the Funitel and to the tram from the Lodge. Very convenient. Covered parking with direct access to the lobby and tons of luggage carts (always grateful when a hotel has plenty of luggage carts).
Our room was large and super-quiet, near as I could tell (we were there on some off nights, Sunday-Tuesday) - we barely heard anyone else (despite being in room 223, which is right next to two doors from the main lobby stairs AND the elevator).
The decor is stuck in the 1980's. Salmon-colored paint, lattice design highlights in places, chrome drawer pulls with a geometric design. The layout was odd, but I think it's meant for families: a queen size bed with pony walls that could be sheltered further from the rest of the room with blinds (although with no door, there would still be no true privacy, maybe just a little protection from the light of the TV - strange design). The sectional sofa pulled out into a bed.
The bed was uncomfortable - not sure why. It wasn't super-hard, the pillows were standard, but we had a horrible first night's sleep. The next night, we both slept on the sofa - there was plenty of room. That also didn't work. Finally, we tried the sofa bed. That was the best option, but still not great.
It had a kitchenette, and unlike most hotel kitchenettes, this one was stocked with utensils - pretty much anything you could want.
Not at all a bad option and very reasonable rate.
