We stayed this past weekend in a premium mountain view king room on the 7th floor for two nights. We had a safe, a mini fridge, a coffee maker (keurig) and a kettle. The view was absolutely breathtaking, so much so that I would have been content to never leave the room and just sit in the comfy chairs at the window. Loved the lit firepits & chairs , the green spotlight on the trees and enjoyed watching the beginning of making the skating surface. We had no issues getting parking but it definitely fills up by the end of the day so if you want a particular level, park earlier in the day. The room was exceptionally clean, even in the corners that might be overlooked. The shower had good pressure & temperature and the head was nice and high. The bed was very comfortable and the pillows nice and plump. We did not visit the restaurants in person but walking past the Larkspur we could see great distancing between tables. We ordered room service for breakfast and supper. Both times service was fast and the food hot. The fish and chips were delicious! There are signs reminding people of masks and I was happy to see the elevators had a sign asking people to ride only with the people they were with. All the staff that we dealt with were very friendly and helpful. I can't wait to return again. Read less

Room had a great view of mountains, which my wife loved it. Suggestions : For a birthday celebration may be a cake should be offered rather then two chocolate dip strawberries. This is just a suggestion Read less

My wife and I stayed for two nights. The room was incredibly clean and the staff worked hard to keep everything clean around the hotel and at the restaurants. We had great breakfast room service and of course the view is the most incredible view from any hotel.

Nice place except mostly closed. Was looking forward to Thanksgiving Dinner offered (but not on Thanksgiving). A nice selection of restaurants, most closed until the weekend. Guess we’ll check out and stay in town, where we can eat.
