I spent a week at steamboat grand with some friends who are owners. I probably would be a little more upset about the experience if I had paid for the lodging. First of all (before you stop reading this) eat at the Creekside Cafe as much as you can. Now, on to the Grand ...
Positives: clean, comfortable beds, nice linens and towels, coffee shop downstairs (in addition to coffee pot in kitchen), decently comfortable living room furniture, excellent pizzeria that had recently opened on the bottom level.
Negatives: the place is just old and tired. The rooms are dim and dark and have tiny windows, which is sad considering the natural light and view you can enjoy. The balcony was laughable. Not only was it tiny, it had one tiny metal chair that was extremely uncomfortable. One of my favorite things to do in Colorado summertime is have coffee on the balcony/porch and enjoy the view. Not so at the Grand.
Location: would be excellent for ski season. In the summer it was not that great. We drove into town for almost every meal and most other activities.
Pool: The two huge hot tubs felt good when you first got in but were not nearly hot enough. It felt lukewarm within a few minutes. There is a poolside bar which was a nice convenience.
Gym: I was very thankful for the foam roller in the gym for my super sore muscles after hiking and mountain biking. I did not workout there, but the equipment seemed pretty old and run down.
All in all, the Grand wasn't terrible, it just wasn't spectacular. At all.
