Alexa was kind, warm, intelligent, attentive, caring, and wonderful. We had an incredible meal thanks to her. We ordered beet soup to start, followed by rabbit pappardelle, duck confit, then topped it off with a filet and lobster. It was wonderful.

The hotel has decorated for Christmas and the decorated trees are just spectacular at night. The interior also looks beautiful, but the nighttime view is incredible. The room was really nice, the bed very comfy and very modern though not cold. In spite of the fact that I don’t ski, there were plenty of other activities available if I had not been traveling on business. I had dinner at the six peaks restaurant and I think it was the best meal I’ve had in years. Everything was so interesting and the marriage of different flavors was amazing - they do a beautiful job of not only the food quality and presentation, but the restaurant itself is beautifully decorated. It helped that I was able to look out on the decorated Christmas trees making it look like a surreal winter wonderland. My server was Aliona and she was so friendly and helpful and her dinner suggestions were spot on. In fact, I would have to say that it seemed like everybody that was working there took a moment to come speak to me to see if I needed anything or how I was enjoying my meal. It was a very enjoyable evening. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. Read less

The new beds are way to soft and offer no support. I left early so i could get home and get some sleep. I even resorted to trying to sleep on the floor. By then my back was so sore i never was able get get any sleep

After I submitted my initial review, my husband mentioned a couple of other items. First, the drain in the bathroom sink was slow to drain; second, we were on the 9th floor after your renovation. It took a LONG time for the warm/hot water to make it's way up to the shower; third, the clock radio in the living room displayed the wrong time (DST);… Read more
After I submitted my initial review, my husband mentioned a couple of other items. First, the drain in the bathroom sink was slow to drain; second, we were on the 9th floor after your renovation. It took a LONG time for the warm/hot water to make it's way up to the shower; third, the clock radio in the living room displayed the wrong time (DST); fourth, the TV remote wouldn't show "guide" or "check-out". I know the TV is complicated, but your technicians should make sure it works perfectly. Overall a very good stay, bordering on excellent! Read less

My husband and I took the kids for Thanksgiving. We had a lovely time up there. The staff was very friendly, the activities around were amazing, there are lots of things to do on winter over there. Thanksgiving buffet was pretty good, you have to book it in advance.
