We spent 5 days at The Grand in Steamboat. It is the only hotel in the area large enough to support up to medium size conferences. We had a studio room, and being off season, prices were quite reasonable. The following are the pros and cons:
The amenities were nice. The studio room had more of a regular sized refrigerator with a usable freezer. It also had a full size stove and ¾ full size dish washer. The kitchen had nice stoneware and nice stainless pots and pans. There was a nice coffee pot, amply supplied with Seattle’s best coffee. The filter packs were actually round so they fit snuggly in the basket. The bath had twin sinks with room to spread out. The shower head provided good water flow. Nice flat screen TV and a DVD player. There was a small safe in the room, located in an ample sized closet. The mattress was very comfortable. Not hard as a sheet of plywood as with some places. The pool and spa looked nice, but we did not go in.
While the decor was nice, it was a little dated. The throw rug in front of the love seat was getting frayed. There were only two of us staying in the room and we generally had ample space, but it was not as spacious as say a Marriott Springhill Suite. You felt a little bit like you were either sleeping in the kitchen or cooking in the bedroom. There was only about a 42 inch pathway between the queen bed and the kitchen counters.
The smoke detector was dangling by its wires above the bed, however it appeared to be working. The stoneware was only a place setting of 4. Even though you would never have more than 4 people staying the room, it meant you generally had to run the dishwasher after each meal. Speaking of the dishwasher, it was very noisy. You would not want to start it until you were ready to leave the room.
By far the most annoying thing was the toilet. It was one of the “exploding” toilets with the pressurized tank. I am sure these were some of the early models before manufacturers figured out how to comply with the federal water restrictions and still provide an adequate flush. If I were the owner and wanting to remodel the place, that is where I would start.
While we would probably stay there again if the opportunity arose, but would probably not pay high season rates.
