Great rate tip from Travelzoo for two nights in late May 2007. Nice room; front desk and bell staff made all visitors comfortable. Room very upscale, but have to admit the bed is too firm. Hate to complain about this place. There is a Zagat rated restaurant onsite but I did not visit it because there are three taxes added to everything ordered that together amount to 30%. They do give you two bottles of water and granola bars, so that was good enough for most of my visit. I did walk down to village a few times and did purchase a meal to go from Coyote Cafe on my last night. Chicken Fajita dinner was bland but that was the right thing for my stomach after having experienced food poisoning at Mesa Verde earlier in the trip. There was a small fitness room available as their regular one is undergoing updates during offseason. It was perfect for me as there was never anyone in there when I visited it. I had the pool to myself two days looking up at the mountain and sky views to the music of the chattering magpies. This was heavenly for me. A great part of my vacation. I gladly paid the $18 per night to leave the car parked in the garage after driving many miles through Colorado and Utah. The young men working at the front desk are genuine and friendly. There is computer available in lobby. The bathroom is designed beautifully with over-sized tub for soaking. Starbucks coffee for in-room brewing. The area is gorgeous, but I felt like a princess locked in the palace. Apparently there is a shuttle I heard other people asking for to get down to the village for dinners but I never did see it. My timing was a bit off at the end of a holiday weekend and there for Memorial Day when stores were closed. Wish fervently that the front desk would have advised me there was a Blues and Bar-B-Que fest going on in the village when I arrived on Sunday as I really would have liked to get in on that. Oh well. Will have to try this place again and would recommend it to anyone. You might wonder if young people would have fun here - I did not see anyone stopping a group of three young couples taking a cooler to the pool/hot tub area and cracking open their beers.
