The Hotel (as opposed to the Sugarloaf Inn which is down the hill and much older) is very nice. There are a few different type of rooms (two level suites, alcove rooms with one bed, and the typical hotel room with two queen beds). I traveled with my wife for a conference and have done so for each of the last three years. The Hotel rooms are reasonably updated and the beds are comfortable. There is a little kitchenette area with a microwave, dorm sized fridge, and small sink. No stove however. Also, I think this does not apply to the alcove rooms to make sure to check that out. The suites have a better equipped kitchen I believe. The WiFi reception is variable. We have had rooms with good reception and some with poor reception. The heat is mind boggling. They turn the heat up extremely high in the entire building. We turned the fan off that blows the heat and opened the windows and could only get it down to 65 degrees at night. This year was more enjoyable because we brought a humidifier. The air is incredibly dry due to the forced hot air. The desk provides typical hotel services, eg, calling the shuttle, selling lift tickets, etc. We found the staff to be universally friendly. They will store your bags if you arrive before check in (4pm) and after check out (11am) so you can ski both of those days.
The biggest plus is the location right at the bottom of the mountain. The price during the conference is reasonable given the proximity to the skiing and the fact that the conference is in the hotel. However, I find the rates to be very poor value at usual winter rates. There are many access lifts that serve people who stay at the Inn and the surrounding condos, which may be of better value.
The hot tubs are in the health club. In stark contrast to many hotel hot tubs, this hotel has them inside -- no view except the parking lot and fitness club. The club has a few treadmills and some free weights.
The revamped restaurant "45 North" has the same nice bar as the old restaurant though the couches around the fire were removed sadly. The prices on the menu are so high we elected to eat elsewhere (The Rack and The Shipyard Brew Haus at The Sugarloaf Inn are excellent pub food with some higher end options).
Overall, our four nights were amazing although the hotel provides little more than location and a clean bed.
