Well...this place was just a little weird. Great spot with pretensions of being a luxury location, but without the sensibility to back it up. I'm sure it's a great place to be in the winter, sitting around the big fireplace apres ski, but in the summer you notice all the negatives: No elevator (and we were on the fourth floor). Indifferent housekeeping staff (had to complain when we received a notice that our room wouldn't be serviced after 10 AM!). Very limited parking at hotel - rest was across the street and down a hill. Oh, and as we were leaving after checkout, a desk clerk came running out to the car with an envelope yelling "I was supposed to give you this!" - an important message that had been received two days earlier! Location is key for this place, and I'm sure that gives them the freedom to be a bit iffy - but there's plenty of condos to rent if you want to stay on the mountain, and The Lodge at Whitefish in town is supposed to be excellent. A shame we didn't know about it before picking the Kandahar.
