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.
