Booked for a regular room, but got upgraded to a suite room due to my husband's status. The room came with a fire place that faces to both the bedrrom and the jacuzzi tub on the other, beautiful shower with rain showerhead, etc. It was so neat. This place is so close to heavenly ski resort you can literally walk... More

We came to see and play in the snow, just stayed one night. It was really nice. We got a room towards the back, no road noise, fast wifi. The breakfast was decent. The staff was friendly. There's a subway nearby and Starbucks too, walking distance. Too bad there wasn't too much snow while we were there. We would stay... More

We stayed here for 2 nights (Sun and Mon). I am a member of this brand of hotels. Even though I specifically stated in my reservation that we wanted an upstairs room we were given a downstairs room at checkin. Both nights the people upstairs were extremely loud. Children and adults yelling, loud elephant-like thumping and banging, and all other... More

Our room was at the back of the property and you could see the Heavenly Ski Slopes out our 2nd floor window. It would be a neat place to stay when there is snow on the slopes! The room was clean and the bathroom was large enough for two people to get ready at once. The breakfast was the normal... More

Rooms very clean and nice. Fridge was loud we turned it off. We were on the road side, no problems with noise until about 7am. Then some loud motorcycles and trucks. If you get a room away from street should be ok. We only stayed one night on a Thursday on road trip. Breakfast was pretty poor. The egg dish... More

The room was comfortable and with separate sleeping areas for two pax. The fire place was a nice touch. Breakfast, only meal served in the Express, was... More

We arrived after 3:00 and our room was ready. We had a quick and efficient check-in. Our room was on the second floor overlooking the pool. The area was quiet and our friends were 2 doors down so that worked out well. The rooms were very clean with plenty of towels and bathroom amenities. The bed was comfortable and the... More
