We have stayed here 4 times now in 3 different buildings that are located side by side in the old village of Tremblant. It is a very quiet place as all the action has moved to the Intrawest ski village at the base of Mont Tremblant. We have been in a 1 bedroom condo and have been in a condo with a loft. The 1 bedroom unit is preferable as it has more space. The kitchen in both units is minimal having a small fridge, a small dishwasher and a small stove with plenty of storage space in the cabinets above. There is usually a pull out couch in the living area and a fire place for rooms on the top 3 of 4 floors. The bathroom is clean though dated. There are some nice restaurants about a 3 minute walk away, a grocery store, a variety store and a tavern in the village. There is also an outdoor skating rink 1 block away for the kids if you come in Dec, Jan or Feb. To ski one takes a short five minute drive to the free parking lot at P2 or if its full go to P3 and take the free shuttle bus back to the lift. Everything you need is here without the expense and opulence of the new ski village at the mountain.
My only complaint here is that it is a constant battle with check in staff to get what was actually sold to you at reservation time. One can phone in October and reserve for March and explain in great detail what you want to rent...the kind reservation agent agrees and sends confirmation... then you get to the hotel and they offer you something totally different... (as if the customer was a fool or the clerk was on some bonus plan to rent slow moving units instead of the popular ones - dont know which one) This has happened three times now and twice we had to take a different room style including this year. The other time we moved after 1 night.
The building has no elevator and you park at basement level so be prepared to climb many stairs.
The check in desk moved in 2010 as the office across the road burned down that year. It is now (2011) located in a real estate office - Residence du Mont Tremblant in St Jovite at 1600 Hwy 117. The office is located on the exit ramp from the highway to Montee Ryan. When you see the sign on the highway that says 1 KM.. immediately check your odometer and turn into the driveway advertising properties on the exit ramp right side before you get to the traffic light. If you miss it you will have to loop back down the highway and try again.
Why do I do this? I like saving money, its always clean and you can stay here for 2 weeks for the price of 1 week elsewhere and its very easy to commute to the Intrawest village if you want to go out or ski.
