The one-night business visit started off a bit comically as in the first two rooms I was sent to, the bed wasn't made. Literally - the mattresses were off the bed and the frame was disassembled! The third time was the charm - and Shayla (sp?) at the front desk couldn't possibly have been sweeter (or more apologetic) about it. The hotel comped my room by 40%, even though I insisted that the 8 minutes of inconvenience didn't justify it.
The room I ended up in was large, clean and well appointed. The bed was very comfortable, and the towels thick. The view of the mountains was breathtaking from the fourth floor. Took me a second look to get the in-room HVAC set right, but it was relatively quiet.
All the staff I encountered were friendly and helpful, and seemed genuinely dedicated to making sure my stay was pleasant. The restaurant was closed due to the season, but got a great recommendation on a local restaurant. Didn't partake of breakfast, but it looked to be pretty standard breads, cereal, juice and waffle-makers. Would definitely go back again.
