I wanted to give this hotel 5 stars because I loved how it made me feel while I was there. But, as we came for an offseason visit, the convenience to the lifts wasn't a benefit for us and the 1 mile walk to the edge of Chamonix (further if you wanted to find certain restaurants) was an inconvenience. However, I would recommend this hotel if you are prepared for the walk. There is a bus that comes hourly but it stops running after 7pm. Taxis are a negotiated €20 for the mile drive back, if you can find one.
Offseason, the hotel restaurant is closed but the golf restaurant is phenomenal It is not inexpensive but it is one of the best meals, views, and ambiance I've ever had. Unfortunately for us it was closed for a wedding two of our three days' visit.
As for the hotel, the breakfast spread is fresh and delicious (bread, meats, fruits, yogurt, coffee) and the staff is so warm it makes you feel like you also own the place. Breakfast and wifi are free.
There is a room full of games to play and a gorgeous view of the mountains. Our room had a terrace facing the mountain (did we have the best room in the place??) and it was amazing to sit and relax there. As for the rooms, they were well decorated and very sweet. The beds were a bit too hard (and we prefer firmer beds) and there was a leaky faucet, but again still a comfortable space. Everything was clean as well.
All in all, I would recommend this hotel.

- Ideally situated near the cable car for access to the ski slopes in winter and walking/biking trails in summer, we have 19 comfortable ensuite bedrooms accessed by an elevator. Our lounge bar offers a cosy place to relax after a sporty day in the mountains and to perhaps be tempted by the classic french cooking of our head chef, Thierry and his team, in our Restaurant Rendezvous. The hotel has a sauna, drying room and ski storage with free wi-fi throughout and free parking. ... more less
