We went for a ski weekend. Stayed on 3 rd floor facing back drive-try to get out of this! They empty trash dragging barrels late eve and early am so any thought of a good nights sleep is just that , a thought.
PROS: vaulted ceiling create spacious feeling in the room. Room has a coffee maker, ice bucket with water and wine glasses, TV, and plenty of outlets. Beautiful mountain view from some areas, outdoor heated pool and hot tub. Comfy robes and slippers. Great, attentive staff happy to accommodate in any way.
CONS: adult outdoor pool and spa overrun with small children as was the indoor pool and hot tub so nowhere to go to enjoy any peace and quite for the $12/day resort fee. kids in the bar/ lounge area poorly attended and taking up bar chairs making adults wait .(what kind of parent would bring their kids to a bar?!!!) and overall pricing. At $500+ / day, I expected to sleep well, enjoy the amenities, and plan a return trip. No such luck on any count. The "Spa" is accessible for a minimum of $30 for a "treatment" in this case, a polish change that for my convenience includes a 20% gratuity. Frankly, if it's included, it's NOT a gratuity! Not to be rude but when did doing your job begin to require a "gratuity" ? tips are reserved for those who make less than minimum wage, ie: waiters/ waitresses. Not some one who is good at their job. but that's just my opinion.
We travelled with our 2 kids ages 18& 21.
