I recently returned from a mid week stay at the Grand Summit Hotel with my wife and young daughter.
I had read several negative reviews of the Grand Summit Hotel but I can say that my stay with my family was really excellent from every angle. We found the hotel to be clean and in a good location with a lot of activities for the whole family (skiing, snowboarding, tubing etc).
The hotel is not brand new, but it is kept up and is clean and in good condition.
From the minute we arrived at the hotel we were greeted by the valet staff (who was excellent) and told us how the hotel offers a free valet service and that was great news as it was snowing hard the Weds we checked in. I had called the hotel ahead of time to request that we have an early check in as we wanted to check in late morning and then go skiing and as soon as we gave our reservation name/number the front desk staff left us know our room was ready--which was excellent news.
The room was nice--we had 2 queen beds that we comfortable with a bathroom and a small balcony.
We really liked that you could eat your meals at a variety of options for lunch and dinner options during the week were limited to Harriman's (on site restaurant where the buffet breakfast is also held) and did not have to drive your car to any of them On the weekend we heard that 1900 burger and the Sushi restaurant on the mountain stay open later etc (past when the mountain closes during the week). We enjoyed the on site deli in the hotel for lunch 2 of the days during our stay,
The pool and hot tub were closed 2 of the days that we were at the resort, but we were notified via email from the hotel staff on our way up to the hotel, which was nice to get advance notice and they arranged for transport down the street to another pool that we could use along with 2 hot tubs.
You can ski down to the hotel from the mountain, but you do have to walk about a 1 minute down the way to the closest life to take you up on the mountain, but really from the hotel to the lift is really less than a minute and they have a walking path for you, so it not that bad at all.
The final day of our stay the outdoor pool and hot tubs were back open and we loved using them and also enjoyed taking a shower after skiing in the locker room before we departed.
We would love to go back to Mount Snow and would stay at the Grand Summit again as we found it be a great hotel that offered a lot for families and couples (we did not use the spa, but they had a full service spa on site as well). We also did not use the tubing park which was $20 for 1.5 of use. The park looked impressive with a magic carpet that brought you back up to the top. Next time we would love to try it as it is light up at night and they play music.
