This property is one of the most luxurious I’ve stayed in while on a snowboard vacation. We stayed in building 1 which is closest to the gondola. Our unit, 1513 looked right over the gondola so we could assess the line up each morning. The unit was a 2 bedroom, 2-bathroom unit and we were 2 couples. The hotel itself is fairly new, and smartly designed in neutral colours. The lobby is quite grand and has a lot of comfortable seating around a large central fireplace. We hung out there in the afternoons after our days on the hill. The lobby has a wine (Okanagan) and cheese available to guests after 4pm. There is a concierge in the lobby separate from reception as in most large hotels, which I’m not used to on a ski hill.
Our room was comfortable and clean, and the kitchen well equipped. Our major complaint was the oversized furniture. The rooms were well sized but the furniture was poorly chosen and took up all the space in the room. For example, the dining table could seat 8 people and its enormous size forced us to walk sideways around it. It partially blocked the entrance to one of the bedrooms. We just pushed it up against the kitchen island to create some breathing room. The bedrooms suffered from the same oversized furniture. You could barely walk around the bed. The dressers are so deep that you can’t really open them fully without hitting the bed. The closet doors swing out into the room and when fully open obstruct movement in the room. They should really just remove the closet doors and put in open shelving as they did at the Firelight lodge at Silver Star where we stayed just previous to this. Check out my review of that place, the designers there knew what they were doing. I think esthetics over function were on the designer’s minds for the Sutton Place. The room looked great before we unpacked! The beds were very comfortable too. Best beds I’ve ever slept in at a ski hill. One strange thing about our bedroom is that it was always a few degrees colder than the rest of the condo. Can’t explain it and couldn’t control it. No thermostats anywhere!
The whole ski base is lacking amenities but it’s still early in Revelstoke’s development. There is no place to buy any groceries but that may be due to the fact that the town is very close and there are lots of food and shopping options there.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi was fast and free.
Overall, very nice stay and will return to Revelstoke but would likely look for other accommodation options next time. This was a splurge stay for us, we’d likely look for more reasonable options for our next visit. If you’re a Vail/Aspen type, you’ll like the Sutton Place. If you’re more backcountry, stay in town.
