The best thing about this hotel is the location. Forget schlepping your skis or negotiating crowded locker rooms. You can put your gear on in your hotel room, grab your skis from the ski valet (included), and hop on the Vista Bahn gondola. It's very, very close and convenient.
The deluxe room was small but comfortable, with nice bedding and pretty views. Ours was a little too close to the elevators, so we did have some late-night noise one night when the barflies came home.
The staff was friendly and helpful, especially the bell-hops and the concierge, who had very good dining and shopping recommendations.
We didn't eat in the restaurant but the piano bar was fun and they had an extremely talented piano player the night we were there.
Some reviews here complain that the hotel is dated, but I felt that was part of the charm of the place. Everything was clean and in good repair, and it felt comfortable and broken-in rather than pretentious.
