“Great Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2009

This was my family's second year at the Steamboat Grand. We arrived at the airport and were picked up by Alpine Taxi, which were very friendly. On our trip back to the airport, their driver took us to a few notable sites in Steamboat and described the history of the town.

When we arrived at the Grand, the bellstand attendants were very quick to take our bags and deliver them to the room. The hotel decor is very Western/Cowboy themed, which was great since we live in New York. The hotel is immaculate. We stayed in a two bedroom suite, which was comprised of one living room, a room with two double beds, and a room with a king sized bed. There was a nice kitchen and a large dining table. We could have easily slept 10 people in our rooms because each couch is a pullout. The beds, pillows, and linens were comfortable. We had three televisions and two fireplaces.

The hotel pool and hot tubs were the highlight of the trip for my three daughters. After a long day of skiing, they were very warm and large. They also sit outside on a platform, so the experience is very special.

The convenience to the mountain cannot be beat. The base of the mountain is across the street. With small children, this was absolutely crucial. We were able to go back and forth from the mountain in 5 minutes. There is free ski and boot storage at the base of the mountain. The attendants there are very quick and friendly.

Everyone that we came into contact with at the mountain went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. We love skiing Steamboat!

The one downside to the Grand is the food situation. There is a small cafe that serves pre-made sandwiches, bagels and Starbucks coffee. There is also a cafe that opens for lunch and serves pub food. We had a difficult time finding a healthy light lunch. The breakfast is actually very disappointing also. It is a free buffet, but the food is terrible. They serve powdered eggs, heavy breakfast food. There is very little selection for someone looking for a healthy breakfast. The fruit was melon and pineapple every day.

The spa is great. I had two massages, which were amazing. One was the Ashiatsu, where they walk on your back. It felt so good for my sore muscles!

The staff there is very friendly and accomodating. Overall, we loved our stay there, and will probably return for a third time next year.

My wife and I stayed for the third year in a row for a conference. We have the same problem every year booking rooms. The hotel is set up as multiple 3 - room suites. The center room is a living room/kitchen with fireplace. On one side of that room is a bedroom with two queens and on the other side of that room is a "master bedroom" which contains a king bed and fireplace and master bathroom. The master bedroom essentially fits the bed only, there is no additional room. So, if you are a couple staying there and want a king bed, you will receive a tiny room. Otherwise, the other option is a room with two beds. Of course, you have to pay extra for the living room/kitchen.
The hotel location is conveniently located across from the base of the gondola and the complimentary ski storage is nice. However, service is always poor in this hotel. For example, our first full day there, the room was not cleaned by the time we returned at 5 pm. Also, we did not receive our bath robes. Furthermore, in two visits to the hot tub, no towels were available. They were "being washed". This occured during February when the hotel was not at full capacity. Other issues are that there is nowhere to eat a light lunch inside the hotel. Overall, the hotel is in a good location but for the prices they charge and their claim that they are a 4-star hotel, I would rather stay elsewhere. My wife and I will never return since we are done with the annual conference.

Stayed for 6 nights for conference. Location convenient to slopes. (Basically a walk across the street) Hotel has free ski/boot storage near gondola. Room was clean and updated. Bathroom a little small. People were very helpful at hotel. Pool and hot tub nice size so they didn't seem crowded. Good exercise facility. I didn't eat in the hotel's restaurants because free hotel shuttle to town made access easy.

We stayed at the Steamboat Grand January this year and look forward to staying here again. I was a litle concerned before arrival that the Hotel was not directly on the slopes but its not a problem at all. They have a great Ski & Heated boot storage facility at the base of the mountain which means its all of a 3 min stroll across the bridge from the Hotel. We arrived at the Hotel at 3am in the morning after a fairly harrowing 5 hr drive in a snow storm so it was wonderful being greeted by friendly and helpful night staff. Our 2 bedroom condominium was fantastic and well appointed with great amenities. The king fireplace bedroom ws on the "cosy" side but had a fabulously huge spa bath, the 2nd bedroom ws extremely spacious with two queen beds and the parlour room with kitchen and lounge and fireplace was huge. All the staff we encountered were exceptionally friendly and helpful. My only critism would be about breakfast - I would rate it 5 out 10, but there are plenty of other breakfast options around. Go to Gondola Joes for Coffee!
Overall I think the Grand offers great value for money and we wil be back.

My husband and I like to try different ski resorts so this was our first trip to Steamboat. Not knowing exactly how conveniently located the various condos were to the gondola (the Steamboat.com map was terrible!), we figured we were safe going with the Grand.

With the exception of our airline tickets, we booked everything through central reservations. We used Alpine Taxi to get us from the airport to the Grand - which was a great ride. I would recommend them to anyone. Check in was a breeze, the bellmen were quite helpful.

We booked a one bedroom condo. The kitchenette was tiny - which was okay because it was just the two of us. However, the stove top was quite dirty, the coffee pot leaked, the ice-maker wouldn't quit making ice, the refrigerator froze everything no matter how much we turned it down. The main room was enormous but sparsely decorated. The "fireplace" did not work. The bedroom was very spacious as was the bathroom. Don't forget your toiletries because there are less amenities in the room/bathroom than you would normally find at a less expensive chain hotel (Holiday Inn Express, Hampton Inn, etc.). The heating system in the room was a nightmare! Apparently there is a heating system in the floor as well as central heating. The floor system had no way of being turned off or down. It was very uncomfortable. Because they tell you not to leave the balcony door open, we had to turn the air-conditioner on to cold in order to cool down the room. Sleeping was miserable because of the heat. The only thing maintenance did was to turn the air-conditioning colder.

On the plus side, the Grand is conveniently located to the gondola and slopes. The storage facility near the gondola was very nice. We used a ski delivery service which actually came to our room to fit our boots to skis. With the exception of a tip to the guys who brought our skis, the price was the same as with any other ski rental shop. It was very convenient. The shuttle service at the hotel was also very nice. The drivers were very accomodating and personable, they did everything they could to make you comfortable. That was, quite possibly, the best part of this resort.

This is a lovely facility, but certainly, in my opinion, not worth the price of a full-service hotel/condo. Next time we will look for a simple condo without all the bells & whistles of a luxury resort that actually lives up to our expectations.

  • Liked — Proximity to the gondola
  • Disliked — It didn't live up to our expectations

We just got back from our first trip to Steamboat and loved it! Staying at the Grand was just awesome. All of the employees were very friendly. The hotel is beautiful and incredibly convenient to the slopes. I was very pleased with our room and would definitely stay here again. I found the shower to be small (and I am very petite) but the jacuzzi tub makes up for it! Also we were there over Christmas and actually had to turn the A/C on for most of our stay...the room stayed quite warm, not sure why.

The pool/hot tub area was great and next time, I'd love to try the gym and spa.

The free breakfast is convenient but pretty typical...you get sick of it after a few days. But as far as hotel breakfasts go, it'll do.

The concierge wasn't all that helpful. It seems like he kept sending everyone to the same awful steakhouse. We started getting recommendations from other people after that.

The shuttle to downtown is so convenient, as well as the ski storage area by the gondola. All in all, I would definitely return to the Grand and would recommend it to others.

We were met at the driveway by a nice young man who arranged for our things to be taken to our room. Check-in was a breeze! To say our room was spectacular would almost be an understatement. We scored a two bedroom deluxe condo. Wow! Two large bedrooms. The master had this huge comfortable bed complete with a fireplace and large bathroom with jacuzzi tub and seperate shower. The other bedroom had two double beds, TV, large closet and complete bathroom. Our main living area was roomy with two couches (one a fold out bed), big screen tv, fireplace, large eating area and fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops and breakfast bar. Lastly, our foyer also had a full bath. Very nice and comfortable. My wife and I almost didn't want to leave our room.

Since it was off season, the hotel was not very full. However the staff was extremely efficient, friendly, and helpful.

We utilized the outdoor hot tub and pool one fine chilly morning to our delight.

We definitely would return here again!!!!
