“Wonderful March Break :-)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We recently spent our March Break (school break, New Brunswick, Canada) at the Attitash Grand Summit Hotel. Despite the fact the room we first checked into was *not* what we expected, we were able to move the next day, thanks in large part to Gwenn (Manager) who was so helpful & kind it made our previous disappointment vanish. We ended up in 2 connecting units, one studio (Murphy bed, sofa bed, kitchen) and one hotel room (2 double beds) so we ended up having more room (2 bathrooms). Thanks again to Gwenn for her outstanding customer service.

The heated outdoor pool & hot tub were fun, and a real treat after a day of skiing, However, Management might want to keep a closer eye on the "yahoos" who drink out of *glass* there (I'm not saying I didn't have a can or 2 of something myself) but there were some decidedly drunk hot-tubbers there one night, drinking out of glass glasses. Why not opt for a Red Solo Cup, buddy?

Breakfast came with the room ... 5 days of it was a little monotonous, but the quality was OK, my only complaint is the bacon seemed greasier than it should be (I know, it's bacon, what do you expect? I ended up patting it on paper napkins to remove some of the excess grease). There was oatmeal, cold cereal, potatos, scrambled eggs, bacon & sausage, pancakes, and a dish du jour (the veggie dish was downright weird, zuchini and raspberry cottage cheese and ???, but the Mexican Steak Lasagne was very good, according to my husband); fruit & yogurt, toast, bagels, muffins, juice, water, coffee - more than enough to satisify anyone. Breakfast left me a little queasy almost every morning but I think that was entirely my fault for eating too much, trying to get a full belly for a good day of skiing.

The ski check worked wonderfully, we coud step our the door and "skate" over to a run which took you directly to the high speed quad to the Bear Peak summit. Some days the grooming was better than other days, but between the runs at Attitash and the runs at Bear Peak, there was lots of happy skiing to be had. Our lift tix were also good at Wildcat (separate review).

Getting from Bear Peak to Attitash is easier than getting back to Bear Peak (FYI). We never bothered with the shuttle. If you are skiing back from Attitash to Bear Peak, you can always take the Abenaki lift and access Bear Peak (high speed quad) that way, from there take Wandering Skis and cut left to the hotel. I mean, how much fun is that?! :-)

Wifi was free and plentiful. TV was fine, rooms came with DVD players, also. Kitchens were standard size (small) but I wasn't there to cook.

Overall, a great family ski trip.

My daughter and I stayed in a deluxe studio room which we found to be clean and comfortable. It had a pull down "murphy" bed and a pull out sofa bed. Most sofa beds are extremely uncomfortable but my daughter said this one was just fine and I found the murphy bed comfortable enough. The view was great as we could look out our window and watch the skiers. Being slopeside was real convenient as it was a short downhill run out the back door to get to the lift. The heated pool and hot tub are outside and they were a big hit after skiing all day. It is really cool to be sitting in a nice warm pool/hot tub with snow falling on your head. Also, the staff is really friendly and very helpful. We had a ball and will definitely make plans to return.

We needed a mid-winter break so we booked three nights accommodation and three days of skiing at this resort. We ended up staying a fourth night due to inclement weather. The front desk staff were very welcoming and quickly set us up with a room and lift tickets. Every staff member with whom we interacted throughout our stay was friendly and did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable. They were quick to offer suggestions as to where to eat and shop. We booked a studio room with full kitchen and found it to be a perfect set up for our requirements. The room was spotless and the kitchen was well-appointed. We thoroughly enjoyed the convenience of ski-in/ski-out, and the heated pool and hot tubs were fantastic.

We stayed at the Grand Summit for six nights after Christmas this year. I booked my husband and myself and two adult daughters into a two bedroom suite with a loft, and it was very spacious. We had a fully equipped kitchen, two bathrooms (one up and one down) two queen size beds, a pull out couch, and lots of closet space. The accommodations were comfortable and clean, and the housekeeping staff could not have been more accommodating. There is also a restaurant inside the hotel which we used for take-out one night. The front desk staff and concierge went out of their way to be helpful and friendly.
This hotel is at the base of the Bear Mountain ski area, which is now linked to Attitash, and a shuttle runs regularly from the entrance of the Grand Summit to the base of Attitash. While my husband did some skiing, the rest of us were looking for R&R. We loved the outdoor heated pool (entered from inside) and the two hot tubs.
This resort is a family friendly spot, so you will encounter lots of kids running about, however it never kept us up at night. We would certainly return for another stay

Food is horrible. Room was ok but housekeeping was not so good. Valet was almost never available. Gave the parking slip 20 minutes before and guy never got the car for us. Just not what expected for location and money!

We just returned for a 3 night stay at the Grand Summit as we celebrated my wife's birthday and Thanksgiving by making a family outing to this lovely part of New England. We were fortunate in having incredible weather and we had no prior knowledge of the property but selected it due to location and price. Although the facility is a bit weathered the service was fabulous and the convenience of having so much available at our beck and call made for a memorable experience. We were surprised to find it as quiet as it was and the facility was somewhat scaled back as the snow season has not yet started, the main dining room was not open and the option of free meals for children under 12 was not available every day, but management gave us a complementary Thanksgiving dinner to compensate. The desk suggested some hikes for us that proved to be exception, kitchen facilities enabled us to do some cooking in the room, the fitness center was more than adequate, the pool , sauna and hot tub was a great way to end the day for children of all ages. Very nice for a getaway and would return, not luxurious but pleasant and comfortable.

Went for a confrerence in September and really enjoyed the property. The dinner we had at the banquet on Saturday night left a lot to be desired. The "Barbeque Chicken" was nothing more than pre baked chicken breast with bbq sauce slathered on after it was baked. Not at all appetizing.
