Six of us stayed in Townhome #7. Perfect for a family or group. We live in Denver and the rest of the group from NJ. We travel the world so I think our review is accurate and fair. /the reviews of the Pines hotel I read is very different than staying in the townhomes. The reviews of the hotel are rave so be aware if you stay in townhouses. The townhome was a 3 bdrm, 3 1/2 bath all of which were beautiful and updated, comfortable beds, new carpet. High ceilings, lots of light. It was disappointing that the main floor with living room and kitchen was very dated and didn't match rest of townhouse. Please beware that the Pines promotes that the townhomes have gourmet kitchens. This was NOT gourmet and was at least 30 years old. Ie: old electric stove, pans were very used, hard to cook eggs as they stuck, not consistent adequate cooking utensils like tongs. And about 30% glasswear and coffee mugs had chips in them. There was carpet in the kitchen that was visably dirty. Carpet doesn't belong in the kitchen. The hotel should have warned us ahead of time. Cabinet doors above refrigerator kept coming off. Light switches in kitchn and living area were filthy, needed a good cleaning. And when walking back into hotel lobby during our 5 day stay, their was a lack of staff around. And if there was staff, they kept heads down behind reception, no one on duty as a bellman. Lobby not inviting nor restaurant, something lacking. The Grouse Mountain Grill is good if you are looking for "she she" They definitely do not promote "casual fare" for dinner so if you want to eat at the bar area, be aware it's not casual, yet their portions are very small. Six of us ordered dinner, The filet mignon was about 2" x 1", 2 goat knochi and the gave us 4 knochi per order, the lettuce wraps were very good but small. So very disappointing as it was expensive and small portions. Point is, you don't want a "high end" meal every meal and I think they are missing the boat by not offering an alternative type of dining. My husband and I travel for business and eat out constantly. Sometimes its nice to eat at the bar area as an option. And its definitely a ski in, but ski out was a hike, but we made it work. Walk to village very easy, 10 minutes max and they do have a shuttle and they were great.
