“Bridges the gap between Hotel and Condo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2010

First time to Mammoth is 20 years. Unless you can split a big condo with a large group, winter stays for a couple or small family can be pricey. We wanted more than a motel room but less than a multi-bedroom/full kitchen condo. Didn't want "rustic" accommodations and wanted to get on the slopes quickly. Monache fit our needs just fine. If I had to complain about something I'd say the room's refrigerator and heating system was a little noisy. It is not in "The Village" as I thought, but on a hill above it. A rather long and steep staircase leads right to it however. There didn't seem to be any type of market or vending machines on the property.

We stayed at Westin Monache for a week during labor day weekend, the Westin Monache is an awesome hotel ! Clean, quiet, great salt water pool lap pool, Westin workout, very nice and relaxing stay after a long day hiking around and fishing in Mammoth Lakes. Large underground parking is unbeatable ! Very friendly staff, the kids club is great when you need to leave your young children for an hour or two.
Haven't try the restaurant as we used the grill by the pool and also the kitchette in our room. The 1 Bedroom is plenty for a family of 4, we did some star gazing from our deck and it's wonderful. We stayed on the 6th floor and it's very quiet. They even have a DVD player you can borrow from the front desk and they will install in your room at no charge. Coin-op washer and dryer in the basement is also available. Definitely will come back this winter !! Thanks for the great experience, we love Mammoth Lakes !!
Absolutely a 5 star hotel !! Highly Recommended !!

We stayed at the hotel overnight before heading to Las Vegas.

I liked:
*nice, stylish, very spacious room (deluxe w/kitchenette)
*very friendly and helpful staff
*nice garage
*nice atmosphere and a nice place (mammoth lakes)
*for ski season the hotel should be the best place, since it's right near the lift

I disliked:
*the breakfast is only a la carte and took us 40 min (pastry and omelett), despite there was only one other couple in the restaurant and two waitors. Also the waitor managed to ask at least 3-4 times in 10 minutes, when we were eating, whether everything is ok (annoys after 1 time) and didn't bring in the waiting period the spare dishes away from the table, so, when the food finally arrived (the omelet was also not very good - too greasy and the broccoli half raw) there was no space to put the dishes on the table.
It was also quite cold in the breakfast room.

Hey, it's a Westin! You get everything you should expect from a Westin, and they never let you down. This place is a resort, so it's a little extra special - bigger rooms, kitchen, fireplace in the room, nice view, pool, fitness center, kids play area, bar/restaurant, etc. etc. Just what you need for an awesome vacation in Inyo National Forest or in Yosemite. This place is conveniently located - super close to downtown restaurants, walkable to shops, grocery stores, and coffee shops. You pay a $25 resort fee per night, but this includes your indoor garage parking, internet, free shuttle service, but just not breakfast. This place is a must stay if you ever come by here. Mad props for this Westin! Oh, and if you need suggestions as to what to do during your stay, talk to Buck at the concierge - he'll hook you up.

Stayed here out of ski season as part of a round-California trip with two small children. Booked a suite which was very affordable and comfortable - great that the kids and grown ups had their own spaces. The pool was great fun with a nice hot spa - good after a day's walking in the lakes area (which is a 15 min drive). Staff were all friendly and the food in the restaurant was really good. Overall a very enjoyable and good value stay. With the ski lift to the mountain right next door to the hotel (albeit up 5 flights of stairs from it to the hotel lobby!!), we are tempted to come back here and ski one year.

I'm not sure how old this hotel is, but it's either new or well-maintained. Our room had all the amenities you would expect from Westin, but it even had little touches that were fitting for its location. For example, it had coat hooks which came in very handy with the multiple jackets we had for our trip (each of us had a casual jacket and a hiking jacket). Our room met my expectations that I typically require, namely a comfortable bed and a clean room. But, what made this hotel excel (and hence the 5 star rating) is the staff. Not only was every single staff member we came across super friendly (which is so critical to how much I enjoy a trip), but they went above and beyond. For example, having never been in the area, we called a number of times asking about different hiking trails. Not only did we get friendly advice, but when we found out that we wouldn't be checking in before the concierge left for the day, the concierge left several handwritten papers explaining a few different trails at the front desk for us to have when we checked in! Also, there were little things that I really valued - for example, when we gave a small tip (just $2) to the bellhop for bringing our luggage to our room, he seemed genuinely pleased to receive it. I don't remember the last time I have experienced that - nowadays, it seems like everyone expects to get a tip whether or not they actually deserve it. My only wish-for for this hotel is that it is in Yosemite vs. Mammoth Lakes which is further from SF where I live. Oh well; can't win them all. But, despite the extra 1.5-2 hour drive, I'll definitely come back!

Got off on the wrong foot with this place after being told we were unable to use either bar or restaurant at check-in as they were hosting a wedding. Appreciate hotels have to maximise revenue streams, especially out of season, but someone with a little forethough could have advised us of this before we arrived - it's just not what you need after a six hour drive, especially when the place is a ghost town and the only alternative is a bleak Mexican establishment serving horrendous food. If we'd known we coud have made alternative travel plans. Otherwise the hotel was ok.When we did finally get to eat there on our second night, the restaurant food was surprisingly good but a little expensive, but the service was top class. Buck on Concierge was a colourful character who was very helpful with advice on walking routes. The rooms were small for the price but ours a great mountain view and was clean, tidy and well designed in that bland hotel way, so forgiveable. On the other hand, the compulsory purchase of a $25-a-day all-in Valet parking / wireless connection fee is a rip-off and plain wrong. So nothing disasterous, but nothing standout - and that's what we hoped for from a Westin and a hotel that purpotes to be the leading facility in Mammoth.
