We booked a studio suite at this location which was very nicely appointed much like a ski resort and centrally located to a lot of what we wanted to see and do. The price was very competitive for a nicer location as we elected not to stay in a cheap room at the local casinos.
On site was a heated pool and hot tubs, fitness center, concierge, lots of scheduled family activities, an ice rink outside, lots of specialty shopping, and a theater on the campus. Across the street on one side is a grocery, restaurants, etc. Within a block or 2 on the other side is more shopping and several casinos.
The room included a bedroom, fully furnished kitchen, and large nicely decorated bathroom with a jacuzzi tub. There was no real sitting area except in the kitchen/dining area based on the layout. There was a DVD player in the room with $3 rentals at the main desk. There is also a $1 Redbox machine at the grocery across the street. There was no pay per view available in the room. The room was very quiet based on the location and the time of year.
The underground valet parking was $19 per day, which was cheaper than the nightly public parking garage. The valet staff were very nice, quick, and knowledgeable of the area. We thought this would be good to do since we didn't know the area, and we were reluctant to leave our vehicle out in the low temperatures and possible snow. Any other time of year you could elect to park for free at a nearby casino.
The Heavenly Gondola is located at the hotel for rides up the mountain to the Heavenly Ski resort and observation deck. Unfortunately this was closed when we arrived with no warning from any website we looked at. The weather was very warm and unfortunately no snow to see or play in.
Overall it was a very nice experience and I would certainly consider staying there again. I would also consider getting a larger room for any entertaining.
