The resort was practically empty, I felt like I had it all to myself although it’s also very sad. Can’t wait to return after the pandemic, the staff is great, the rooms are clean and the grounds are beautiful.

Ski lift steps away and no line to wait in. Everyone super nice and helpful. The fireplace suite was perfect for 3 people. The Covid safety protocols were better than expected. Highly recommend hotel.

We initially booked a Fireplace Suite with the Valley view. The view was beautiful, unfortunately once we stepped in it, we realized it was too small for our family of 5 (3 adults and 2 kids; 6y/o + 4y/o). The suite looked a lot bigger in the pictures than when you're actually in it. We immediately made the decision to upgrade to the Penthouse.… Read more
We initially booked a Fireplace Suite with the Valley view. The view was beautiful, unfortunately once we stepped in it, we realized it was too small for our family of 5 (3 adults and 2 kids; 6y/o + 4y/o). The suite looked a lot bigger in the pictures than when you're actually in it. We immediately made the decision to upgrade to the Penthouse. Brent(?) immediately brought a bottle a wine and gave us the keys to the Penthouse, we felt so VIP. It was much more per night but we felt like it would a "make or break" the vacation. We are so glad we upgraded to the Penthouse, because the grandiose floor to ceiling views of the valley made the experience so worth it! The bi-level unit with 1 bedroom + full bath upstairs, and another bedroom downstairs + full bath was the perfect layout/space we needed. We will definitely be back and want to stay in the same penthouse unit again. Also you get to see how staff shine when you're faced with a difficult situation. Our family had a terrible accident while ice skating and Dan Jodrey really stepped up and provided the best care. His professionalism and attentiveness helped us navigate a scary situation. Great staff, great property, and the penthouse is a definite treat that will melt your heart just waking up to stunning views of the valley. Read less

Staying during Covid is tough, but they do a great job with what they can offer. Spa treatments were open - Shannon, Meagan and Marissa are amazing. Gabriel at the front desk is so helpful, and even the valet staff is great. The property is gorgeous, perfect location.
