This was easily the nicest hotel we've stayed at on our trip and that includes some great 4 star hotels. The staff is incredibly friendly, but you don't really notice they are there. They just get everything done. When we did ask, they went over and above.
The building interior looks like a combination of a great ski resort lodge with big pine pole construction, and an island resort with many jacuzzis hidden behind boulders. There are several log catwalks that also serve as access points so you can see the whole thing. A great pool area is seperated off by a glass wall. Both ends and the ceiling of this place let lots of natural light in through huge windows. This is the only hotel I bothered with taking pictures of while we were gone. Log walls are decorated with a wide variety of stuffed animals. Some of these and a huge fireplace greet you upon your arrival. Besides the pool/spa area, the bottom floor also boasts a great fireplace family lounge room and a veranda area with umbrella patio tables for kicking back and for the morning breakfast.
The third floor balcony hangs over the main part of the lodge and has alcoves with couches, tables, chairs, lamps, etc. This is a great area above any buzz to pull out the laptop (free wifi here) or read. These are available for use by anyone regardless of where your room is.
Second floor balconies are private for each room but also give great visibility of the pool and veranda area.
First floor rooms to not have balconies obviously, but they open up to the pool area. You see many of these used for family reunions or where several couples and families are vacationing here. Doors are left open and people just come and go.
With all that going on, I thought we might have sound issues. Not so. They turn off all but navigation lights in the hotel as of 11pm and require all public areas to be vacated. I stayed out on the 3rd floor balcony lounge area with my laptop and nobody cared, but otherwise the place was asleep. If you are a party hound and think the entire hotel should stay up with you, this isn't your hotel.
There were only two negatives in this place as far as I am concerned. First, front doors should have an automatic option for when you are trying to bring luggage in. It isn't so different from most other hotels, but this can be a big issue for people traveling alone or those of us with the responsibility to bring in all the luggage. The second negative is the amount of bromine sanitizer in the air from the whirlpools. The levels are actually lower than many other places I've gone and very normal for an inside pool/spa area, but still need getting used to. Not enough to effect my rating since its part of the tradeoff for having indoor pool and spa. If the smell bothers you, get a non-pool side room and you should be fine.
The pool area is great. Many places cut back on costs by letting the pool room or pool stay cool. Or if they do heat it well, it becomes a steambath in the room. This place is very well designed. While the pool is very warm - 88ish, the room is dry and so were the windows despite having a very cold day outside.
This is a great family place, though many couples were also here. There is also at least one fairly large meeting room here as well.
The breakfast isn't to die for, but it's a couple of steps above "continental". Make your own waffle waffle-maker. They cook eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy are all adequate and well supplied. Typical other fare of various muffins, bagels, and juice machines are also there. The coffee is decent and some is always there.
It's also got a pretty decent gym on the other end of the building from the pool. Equipment is adequate and equal or better than what you find in most hotels.
I highy recommend this place.
