I went with three other buddies and we split two rooms. My room had a little kitchenette as well as two beds (queens or fulls?), a decent size sofa and a table with four chairs.
The proximity to the lifts was the reason to pick this hotel.
The mountain was great and the ability to ski two resorts from one hotel was excellent. Just be careful when skiing over to Brighton, as the gate wasn't that well marked. Easy to do though as long as you're careful to look for the gate.
The Inn is small and so is the hot tub. The size of the hot tub was a bit disappointing, but in reality it never stopped us. Why they built it so small is a mystery. I was told by one of the front desk people that they would be expanding the hotel where the "administrative offices" are, but I have no way to know if it is true.
The room rate included breakfast and that consisted of scrambled eggs, bacon (nice and crispy), potatoes, pastries/bagels, coffee etc. Also, some cereal, juice, yoghurt etc. Very nice.
The best part of the hotel is the St. Bernards restaurant. We ate there three nights in a row. Our group tried the trout, rack of lamb, duck, pork, steak and maybe one more thing and we loved each dish. It was a pleasure to walk to the first floor of the hotel after a day of skiing. We had no interest to go elsewhere.
The room could have a little updating to the furniture, but maybe it was just ugly?
Someone else said that they had to reuse towels for three days. I wonder if they got into a condo and I believe those rooms don't get towel service every day. Showers were more than adequate.
The only reason I don't rate this a 5* is because it's not the Four Seasons and the hot tub is a bit inadequate for a 5* hotel. The service was excellent from the front desk people.
I did check out the "Club at Solitude" and it was nice. Media room, video games, pool table, swimming pool with slide and two hot tubs. The problem was that the hot tubs were packed. We asked about the steam room (schvitz) but they told us about the sauna. A sauna and steam room are as different as milk and meat.
I'd recommend this hotel to anyone.
