I was really looking forward to our couples getaway visit to the Osprey. My expectations might have been misplaced. Based on the website, and the high prices, I was expecting a contemporary, chic boutique mountain hotel. Instead, it seemed more like a small, casual family-friendly lodge---not a bad thing, but maybe not what I had been expecting or looking for on this visit.
The location is great----directly outside the Strawberry Park express lift. We had a large room, but the architecture/design just didn't work for me----sort of a mish-mash of contemporary and traditional mountain lodge. Our room didn't heat up adequately, so the staff brought up two unattractive space heaters for our room (no discount given for the inconvenience).
The lobby was comfortable---a casual hang-out spot for lots of families playing games, chatting, etc. There was a large fireplace but it wasn't working during our visit. I asked a young staff member why there was no fire in the fireplace and they explained that they were waiting for something that was on order for the fireplace to work.
We were on the top floor, and there was only one elevator, which wasn't working for much of our visit.
The young staff was friendly, but the hotel just didn't run as smoothly as it should for a lodging at this price level.
Still, if you're looking for a small friendly spot, and don't mind paying top-dollar primarily for location, this might fit the bill.
