If you want to stay at a place that's super convenient to skiing, this is the place to be. In the morning, you put your skis on outside the front door and can ski to either the Solaise lift or the Olympic gondola. At the end of the day, ski back from the slopes, any of the lifts, or the nearby bus stop.
The hotel itself is lovely. Staff is friendly. Lobby is bright and comfortable. The food is excellent. The morning breakfast buffet includes fresh bread, baguettes, croissants, fruit, yogurt, cereals, meats, cheeses, and hard boiled eggs. Dinner is also excellent. There is always a choice of two appetizers (soup or something else), two entrees, and a variety of desserts. You can also make arrangements for fondue or raclette in lieu of the set menu, but you need to make arrangements for this several days in advance.
The walk into town is easy -- just walk across the base of the mountain and in 5 minutes you're near the shops, restaurants, bakeries, etc.
The rooms are comfortable and have plenty of storage space. The bathrooms are bright and have all been renovated within the past 5 years. Beds are comfortable. The rooms with a village view offer great people watching at the end of the day.
My family has been staying at the Altitude every year for almost 20 years and the complaints some reviewers have made are overblown (I most certainly would not compare it to a hostel!!). While we love this hotel, no place is perfect and there are a few things that could use improvement. The rooms are charming, but they could use a fresh coat of paint and some new furniture. There is free wireless internet available, but it only works in the lobby and even then the signal is quite weak.
