We are finishing up our 5 day stay, and I wanted to share our 1st time experience. I hope you find it helpful. I was vacationing with my 17 & 14 year old sons. Flew from Lexington, KY and arranged for shuttle to the hotel.
When shopping around 2 weeks in advance, the TripAdvisor feedback for Marriott was good with room recommendations of being on top floor and facing the slope. I booked with AAA discount, but could only leave a request for a certain room.
When we arrived, the staff was very helpful. Shout out to 'Christina' who made sure I had everything I needed. We checked in with no issues and ended up with a room on the 5th floor facing the slopes (room 7503, 7 represents the building #). The room was very clean and functional. TIP: Get a room on the slope side near the end of the building so it is a little quieter while still close to the available service elevator.
This hotel is right next to the slopes... great location. Sort walk to the elevator, then a 2min walk thru the pool area, then directly to the slopes.
The activity staff was very friendly and had many fun things on the calendar. Few favorites include chocolate tasting, glass forming that makes personal items, and blues music & brats in the pool area. Very well organized and a special thank you to Emily for a special chocolate session. TIP: Sign up & show up early for the activities... it can get crowded quickly.
Pool area is large with several nice hot tubs. The gym is also large with cardio, machines, and free weights.
The concierge helped me find a local hair stylist for a great haircut. Highly recommend Phoebe at www.phoebeondine.com. She went out of her way to work within my schedule.
To be honest, this was one of the nicest hotels I have stayed at in long time.
