My sister and I spent two nights in late July - just a diversion - leaving work and family behind for a sisterly jaunt. While I have to agree with a friend who describes Steamboat Springs in general as a "soul-less, touristy ski town," being summer, take the ski out of my opinion! There are some decent restaurants and shops though we didn't go there for the shopping. The hotel was just fine. It's big. It was clean. It had a low occupancy when we were there and don't know how much I would have enjoyed it if it were full. I had opted for a plain double room when I made my reservation but upon arrival was offered the adjoining "studio " room as well for an additional $50. each night and we took it. This saved me a lot over what I would have paid if I had opted for that when I initially made the reservation. Having two bathrooms was a real bonus. The rooms were comfortable, good beds, bathrooms super clean, irons and ironing board, decor that I wouldn't want to live with (decorator rustic/western) but fine. Huge, long hallways but we quickly discovered the additional doors that allowed us to enter closer to our rooms. That brings to mind one source of discomfort that is probably a result of my New York perspective - safety. The aforementioned doors from the street and parking garage had no security features and no supervision. Anybody at all could enter the property and go to any floor without even a key as long as it was earlier than 10 PM. I didn't like that much. But anyway - the pool was OK - service was good, didn't eat in the restaurants (in part because on Sunday mornings they only serve the expensive breakfast buffet and not being a big eater I don't want to drop that much money on 1 piece of toast, one egg and coffee. We had cocktails at the bar that were great. Bartender Haley was very personable. Front desk folks were fine, no surprises on the bill. Don't bother with valet parking - you can easily take an elevator down to the garage and move your car yourself. Just so you know, the hotel is located up in the ski-village part of town. We had dinner both nights in restaurants that were walking distance but otherwise had to drive the 10 minutes to do other things in town.
