We organized a few days in Chamonix fairly last minute. Timing wise, it was smack in the middle of French school holidays, so I was a little concerned about what would be available and whether value for money would even factor in, but Le Vert Hotel turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. Hotel rooms are a super-budget price, but perfectly comfortable with good hot showers. The restaurant and bar in terms of offerings and atmosphere, as everyone has commented, is the big plus. Le Vert is a 15 - 20 minute walk up the road to central Chamonix. Bus stops in both directions are right out the door, but they're not too frequent, so we often walked into town. But when you're not up for it, it's great to know you have the option of a great meal and bar atmosphere without having to step out the door. Breakfast wasn't a raving point, but it was adequate and once again simplifies things in ensuring you're fed, juiced and caffeined up for a day out and about.
We had a great trip; tried some cross country as well as snow-showing. Both were awesome experiences and cheaper, simpler experience than down-hill. Being picked up from the airport and hotel seems like a bit of an extravagance for a budget ski holiday (if such a thing is truly possible!), but in fact there aren't a lot of cheaper options and having the hotel organize this was a real boon.
All in all a very successful stay.
