I was happily surprised at the valet service, friendly front desk staff and helpful concierge upon checkin. My studio room with complete kitchen, is a marvel of efficient design in a tiny space. The hotel is right at the base of the mountain. My room, though, backs up to a bank of dinging elevators and overlooks a run down bar... More

This is my third or fourth stay at the Summit and it was just as enjoyable as all the others. By mistake we arrived with no reservation, and at peak season they worked us in to a beautiful upper floor room with minimal delay. The stay was perfect, with the exception of a staff issue regarding the elevators that was... More

This is a first class resort across the board. Immediately below my window were the chairlifts. If I commanded the sort of income generally targeted for patrons here, I should have no qualms whatsoever to provide a five star rating. However, I am what they used to call a ski bum. My stay made possible due to the largess of... More

This was our first trip to Big Sky. This is one of the more expensive places to stay. We chose it because we were looking for convenience, ski in/out, feet from lifts. The Summit certainly delivered in those respects. We specifically chose to visit after the holidays when the majority of vacations ended. It was a very slow week for... More

This was my first experience at the Summit. I was pleasantly surprised at the attentiveness of the always smiling staff. Even if they did not have an answer they were willing to find someone who did. I was here for a girls' ski week and the after ski options, restaurants, spa services, hot tub, shopping, etc filled our available free... More

Rarely have we been treated so well….From the minute we pulled up someone greated us and escorted us to check in, from that moment on there were always kind people there to help…..even on the 9th floor, someone was checking to make sure we had all we needed. We arrived on Dec. 11 and some of the resort was not... More

The summit is the perfect location for your ski trip, the lifts are literally at your back door with a valet ski service. The mountain is incredible with countless runs and lifts there is something for everyone. The hot tub is the perfect way to unwind after a day on the slopes with the staff always obliging to bring more... More

The views from this place are great almost everywhere you could be placed. The staff was decent, but not exceptional. The room was very clean and a great view of the mountain. However, for the price, I expect more than a Murphy Bed to sleep on. So many positives to the entire resort, they could do better for comfort in... More
