Overall, this hotel is above average. It is in the upper village area - a ski in/out. With a lot of snow, this would be a great ski in/out. We stayed May 1-3 and there is a 5' wide ribbon of snow that you use as the ski in/out -- very slushy in the afternoon, a bit dangerous to get back to your condo since it is so crowded. If the Wizard Express chair is running, you can catch download to the bottom of the chair but it is a steep 20 minute walk back up the hill to he condo.
Rooms are clean but a little small, secured parking is easy ($19/night now or $23/winter season), kitchen is a nice plus with the coffee maker and refrigerator. Free breakfast is included in the rate - boiled eggs (cold), yogurt, fruit, oatmeal, breads and pastries, and cold cereal. They also have a waffle maker - great!
Walls are a little thin - we could hear our neighbors as well as those upstairs of us. I asked for a non-pet room in my reservation and was accommodated -- it was nice that the request was noted.
Staff are friendly - very helpful if you need to make dining reservations or need assistance. Wifi was strong, but you do need to login every day to reconnect. With my ipad, that meant going to the Safari browser each time I left it for a period of longer than an hour - open the browser, reconnect, then I was good to go with the wifi.
Shuttle bus service to the village is only every 25-30 minutes. We drove down instead and parked in lot 4 - the free parking lot. A little far, a little inconvenient, but the village is great.
This was touted as a 4 star - that is not a true rating. It is great for families and a good ski in/out with snow but I wouldn't consider this a 4 star property as compared with the Greystone Lodge or Pan Pacific which is why I gave it 3 stars. Pricing was relatively inexpensive $113/night for a one bedroom suite for 2.
