My husband and I stayed at the Forest Suite Resort from December 31st thru January 7th. We stayed in a one bedroom suite, which had a full kitchen, separate bedroom, and it had a pull out couch so definitely could have fit more people. I highly recommend this place! It is in a great loaction to the casions, grocery store, restaurants and most importantly the gondola. The gondola literally goes over the resort and basically you just have to cross a side street and you are at the entrance. I rated this hotel with a 5 for cleanliness. I know others complained about the cleanliness but I would just say that the rooms are just outdated. The maid came everyday and did a great job of cleaning up the place. So nice that you don't have to do your own dishes when you are on vacation. The bed was very comfortable with looked to be new bedding. If you want a place with granite counter tops and that sort of upscale amenities then you might want to stay somewhere else. As for us we enjoyed the ski lodge feeling of the place and would definitely stay here again. In addition, the employees at the front desk were extremely helpful. I think we probably called or stopped by the front desk at least once a day asking for recommendations of places to eat, lift tickets, bus schedules, etc. I guess 2 things I would say negative about the place is the shower and the lack of a fireplace. My husband is 6'5 and the shower head was much lower than that and the water pressure at peak hours is low but at least there was hot water.
