Spent eight nights and we really enjoyed the property. The rooms were very comfortable and quaint and appear to have been recently renovated. The walkout balcony was great for fresh air and natural light in the room. Housekeeping was great and didn't just drop off towels and make the bed but really would touch up the room and it would smell fresh and clean daily, something not expected at a property with excellent value. Location is perfect for heading into downtown and very short walk to catch the bus for skiing. The comp breakfast is perfect for fueling up for skiing, it's basic, awesome granola and good service. The hot tubs and sauna were clean and relaxing. The staff are also super friendly and helpful which is something that puts this property way over the top.
Only minor complaints are that the water pressure on the shower was on the weak side. It was a low flow shower head which is good to save water but seemed to make showering in the morning take longer. So not sure how much water you save in the long run when it seems like it takes forever to get all the soap out! Also the wireless internet cost is $10 a day which also includes a bandwidth cap. So if you antivirus chooses to update and you have to download pdfs from work it can get a bit sketchy. Hardly anyone charges for internet anymore and it was frustrating to pay for very limited access.
Regardless, it was a great stay and we'd gladly stay at this property again!
TIP: Purchase your tri- area ski passes in advance, they'll be at the hotel when you check in and include the bus rides to the mountains. For advanced skiers check out the day trip to Kicking Horse in Golden, BC. Probably some of the most intense skiing in the area and bus will pick up at the hotel.
