If you book with a group and the place isn't full you'd think that the resort would make some effort to find a room near the rest of the group for a woman traveling alone. Especially if it is 0 degrees outside. Instead I was stuck with the most remote room (although there were rooms closer to the group available) with terrible cell coverage and not great wifi access. The rest of my group was a very icy walk away. And while I specifically asked about swimming pool/fitness center access, they still booked my room far from amenities.
Also when I checked in the woman was very rude about the fact that I didn't have a car for their forms. Despite the fact that I walked in with 3 other adults and had booked under the name of the company, she didn't quite get that I had traveled with a group for work. Again that might have been an indicator that I was *not* interested in the most remote room available.
I had booked a hillside room, which was fine. No view. Again very icy walk to the room. Would have happily paid for an upgrade to be near the rest of the group. (Mind I paid the same amount they did for their rooms.)
Despite happy memories of coming here on vacation with my husband years ago, I will not be coming back to a tourism destination that so poorly calls room assignments.
