My family of 3 (2 adults+ 10-year old) stayed at the Jordan Grand in Sunday River for March break. Although the hotel is a few years old, it is extremely well maintained and as one reviewer had pointed out "Aging gracefully." The accommodation choices used my ski group (Van Wart) included a range from studio to 3 bedroom. We had a one bedroom. There was a living/dining area with a small kitchen along one wall. The kitchen had an apartment sized fridge/stove/microwave and a few dishes/pots/cooking tools etc. There was a coffee maker as well (take filters). In other words, an easy room to serve a big breakfast before hitting the slopes. We ate lunch out depending on where we were skiing each day and then headed back to the Jordan for a cocktail in the hot tub and supper. It was easy to cook most things in your room or you could dine at the pub downstairs (Sliders). The outdoor pool and hot tubs were the nicest set up I've seen at a ski resort. Clean, large and nice & warm; even on cold windy days. The kids played catch and did handstands in the pool and the adults rated them from our hot tubs where we chatted about the skiing that day. There were comments on line saying that this wasn't really a ski-in/ski-out hotel but I didn't really experience that. It's true that for 2 part days, the Jordan lift was not running (rain & wind) but on both occasions, they opened the horizontal lift that took us to the bottom of Aurora lift so we could start our skiing there. We didn't have a day when the Jordan lift didn't open in the afternoon so we could always ski home. If the Jordan lift hadn't opened, we'd have had to take the shuttle home though and I can see where that wouldn't be as charming as skiing in beside the hot-tub crowd and waving on your way to check your skis at the ski-check. I forgot to mention the beds. The Jordan brags on their site about great beds and they deserve to. Very very comfy beds, pillows and bedding. Our son slept on the sofa bed pull out and it was just fine but some rooms also had a Murphy bed which the kids thought was great.
