“Biggest Loser 15k race weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Our stay was short ( 2 nights) but it was relaxing. The room was very comfortable....a bit small but we weren't there to stay in the room. The outdoor pool was a big plus....it is heated and felt so good even though the temps in the evening were cool. The only negative to or stay was when none of our card keys worked the day after checking in and our room seemed to be the farthest one away from the lobby. There was no phone on the floor so we had to go down to the lobby. Someone was supposed to come up and check the lock but no one did....so down to the lobby we trudged again. We looked like a bunch of homeless people in the hallway. I still don't know what the issue was but we did get back into our room. Using our cell phone to call the 800 number did no good....it sent us to a central reservation. After the 15k (we had already checked out), we used the showers in the spa area before we left for home. Wish that we could have had a slightly later check out time but the front desk was adamant about the checkout time....no leeway....not even an hour.

My husband and I ran away for a 3 day ski adventure in January 2013 and stayed at the Killington Grand Resort Hotel. The ski resort was absolutely amazing and kept us busy all day. The hotel had an outdoor heated pool and hot tub that overlooked the mountain, which made us EXTREMELY happy after a long day of stressing the muscles on the slopes.
The room we stayed in was VERY small and not very memorable. We don't need much because we did not plan on spending much time in the room, but I think we expected a little more because of the name of the hotel itself. The bed was very uncomfortable and did not make us feel cozy after being sore.
The ski out / ski in feature was exactly what we were hoping for and everything was close by. Overall, the hotel was very nice and the trip was fun...but living up to the word "grand" may take a little more work.

We stayed during Labor Day weekend and following week. We had a one bedroom suite consisting of a joined hotel room and a studio with full kitchen. The hotel rm has two queen beds and the studio has a full kitchen with dining area plus living space - not huge but more than adequate for two. The studio side has a queen Murphy bed. Two more adults would be tight but two kids maybe OK. Good furniture - comfortable. Outdoor pool - heated, good size, open year round. Ski lift right next to hotel. Friendly staff. I'd stay here again.

Stayed 1 night (for a conference) in a murphy bed room and would never do that again. I enjoy a firm mattress but this was like sleeping on plywood, simply the worst night sleep I have ever had in a hotel.

While the health club, pool, sauna, bathroom amenities were what would be expected, if not better, from a mountain resort; what took me by surprise was the in room coffee. Having New England Coffee in the room would be like having a brick for a pillow. This is simply the worst coffee around and to have it in this level of a resort, in a state well known for great coffee this was very disappointing.

Overall if I were to go back for pleasure I would likely stay in a nearby condo and not the Killington Grand.

Room Tip: Don't get a murphy bed room.

We were at this Hotel for a friend,s daughter's wedding. The wedding ceremony was on top of Killington Mountain....its was very scenic..The reception followed in the Grand Hotel....staff very accomadating and attentive. Great crabcakes, chichen satay and spring rolls for the cocktail hour. Bride and groom picked a barbeque buffet....buttermilk fried chicken tender and warm , ribs were fall of the bone.. Next morning we were invited to a buffet brunch.. all entrees were warm,well prepared and plentiful. The blueberry pancakes were my favorite. Staff also very attentive. A good time was had by all at this scenic venue. Did get to see the bridal suite which was a one bedroom suite with plenty of room with a lagre deck overlooking the Snowshed ski area. appeared clean and nicely appointed.

We just got back from a long weekend at the grand resort hotel. The customer service was top notch especially the staff at the front desk. We got there early after a long drive and our room was ready. The room had a lovely view and AC which was great since it was so hot. The hotel is pretty quiet in the summer but there is a nice gondola ride up the mountain and you can hike down some trails. There are a lot of nice towns to visit around Killington which is pretty shut down in the summer.

Overall the hotel was comfortable and the room was clean and nicely furnished. The bathroom was tiny but updated and clean.

Room Tip: Get a room in back with a nice view of the mountains.
