Stayed at the Forest Suites over the winter break.
The property is a series of old, 70's-vintage apartment buildings. It's a very convenient 1 block walk to the base of the Gondola and the Village. The lobby is quite nice. The continental breakfast was basic and blah. Our room, while dated, was spacious and clean, the beds were comfortable and the maids did a great job. However we discovered that half of the living room area carpet was soaking wet from some sort of leak. We notified and the maintenance people came and looked, shoveled some snow. By the next day, the room stank to high heaven and we requested to be moved. The front desk was prompt and courtious. Also each room has it's own, rather loud, furnace, which we nicknamed The Dragon. The bathroom doors will not stay open unless propped. The building's elevator, which was broken on our last day (we had to haul our luggage down a stairwell), was something out of 'The Shining'. Seriously, the one florescent bulb just needed to be flickering to complete the scene. Also, there were cooking smells throughout, since the rooms had kitchens.
I probably would not choose to stay there again. We felt that it was a little rough for the price. It would be good if you had a group with kids - lots of room and no worries about them being rough, messy, dirty.
