My friend and I scored a great deal for a studio room in December. It consisted of a Murphy Bed, which was very comfortable and a pull out sofa bed which was hard as a rock. Thankfully my friend did not mind a very hard bed so I got the comfy Murphy bed. Their was a nice kitchen fully stocked with anything you need. If you wanted something that was not in the kitchen you could go down to housekeeping on the 4th floor and sign out other cookware, like non stick pans and crock pots! You could totally do a vacation here and not go out to eat once! The bathroom was a decent size and we really liked the fact that there were 2 sinks. The best part of the room was the balacony! It was AWESOME!!! We had a complete view of on epart of the mountain and we were able to watch people ski/board down the mountain. Totally cool and gorgeous! Really cool to see the lights from the snowcats grooming the mountain after dark as well!
About 2 days in to our trip we had a problem with our room (no one's fault) and we were immediatley upgrade to a suite on the 10th floor! OMG!!! This room was AMAZING!!! It had two floors with 2 queen size beds, 2 full bathrooms, a sofa bed and a murphy bed, a FULL kitchen, a fireplace, a ceiling to floor wall of windows with an amazing view of the slopes and another floor to ceiling view toward Salt Lake City and the mountains out in that direction. This room was just beautiful. There were 2 decks on each side of the room and both had amazing views! I typically would never be able to afford a room like this but if you could afford it....splurge and do it! It is totally worth it!
The staff that works at the hotel are just great. They really try to do right by their patrons. As I stated before, we had a problem with our room and were given an upgrade, a basket FILLED with goodies to bring on the mountain AND a $100 gift certificate to use anywhere at Snowbird.
My friend and I ate at a couple of different places at Snowbird. I think my favorite for food was the resturant The Aerie. We went their for Apres ski and it the apps were very yummy as well as the hot drinks! I also really enjoyed The Tram Club which was probably the most hoppin of the bars in Snowbird (we were there before teh season really started). And the Wildflower in the actual Iron Blosom was pretty tasty too. Loved the fact we could sit by the huge roaring fire and eat dinner. Got a couple of spa treatments as well. They were decent, nothing to write home about. BUT the spa is beautiful (the one in the Lodge not at Iron Blosom)
I would definitely recommend this lodge. Not only are the accomodations great but you can literally walk to the lifts. And if you want to go to a lift a little further way they have a free shuttle that runs ALL day long.
And if you are planning on driving anywhere get a 4 wheel drive! I was all over the road in a 4 wheel drive!!! It is a must have if you plan on exploring anywhere outside of Snowbird.
