The Ptarmigan Inn, or P-tarm in the local vernacular, is in a wonderful location on the slopes of Steamboat. It's a very short ski down to the gondola, and you can ski right back to the door at the end of the day. The hotel itself is fine, but the furnishing are rather dated; tube tvs and vhs videoplayers in the rooms, for example. The free wifi service was reasonably quick at 2 to 4 MB per second, but it seemed like they rebooted the server on a fairly regular basis, briefly interrupting the internet connection every hour or so.
The restaurant in the hotel (sorry, can't remember the name) was nothing special, but not offensive.
The hot tub and swimming pool were more than adequate; unfortunately, they are not on the slope side of the building, so you can't relax in the hot tub at the end of the day and watch all the tired skiers on their last runs.
One downside of the location: The ski school for small children is located just outside the hotel, and when we were there they groomed the snow in that area every morning between 4 and 6 am. If you are a light sleeper in a slope-side room, the noise of the equipment is likely to wake you.
