My daughter and I stayed here for the NASTAR championships at the end of March, and we found Stonebridge to be a great launching point for our activities.
First, the location -- its a very short walk to the slope from the rooms, up a short flight of steps then less than 100' down a service road and you're putting on your skis. The slope is serviced by the Village Express, which is one of the main lifts -- if Snowmass is open, this lift is open. Further, the hotel is halfway between the Snowmass base area and the Snowmass mall (open walking mall). This worked out perfect, as it was a short 5 minute walk to either area. The hotel has a ski locker, but this is the one area that is sub-par -- it's just a small door into a concrete pit 2-3 feet below ground. Your skis would sit in melting snow water (no carpet), and anything small would be unreachable. The front desk recommended we just bring the skis up to our room, which worked out much better.
The rooms were great; we stayed on the 5th floor (confusing since the lobby is on the 4th floor!), and had a mountain view. Despite the hotel being full, we did not hear noise in our room at any time. The maid service was fantastic, and they were great about cleaning the room when we were out. Oddly, they only took the tip we left on 2 days out of 7 -- not sure if this is a hotel policy or what, but in my experience very unusual.
For breakfast, since I thought the buffet was too expensive for a quick meal, I walked up to the mall and picked up pastries/burrito and coffee and brought it back to the room. However, about halfway through the trip I learned that you could order just the omelet bar, or just the 'cold buffet' including coffee for less than $10. Then, the last day, I learned that you could buy a plate from the 'cold buffet' for $4 and bring it back to your room. This was bordering on ridiculous -- fresh fruit, a few pastries, and coffee in the room for $4?? Great deal, just wish I'd discovered it earlier in the trip.
I'll review the onsite restaurant separately, but we ate dinner there twice, and it was really good both times. Easily the best restaurant we tried while at Snowmass -- although there were some odd service moments. It was good service, just strange -- no one in our group wanted french fries, and the waiter would only substitute another starch for the fries, despite our being willing to pay any difference. We gave up, and just ordered additional sides.
The hotel service was great; there were always people at the front desk who could answer any question we posed. Forgot my razor, and they provided one w/shaving cream at no charge. We also lost the ski-locker key, and when I checked at the front desk expecting a $25 or more service charge, they just handed me another one -- no problem at all. The hotel provides airport transfers to Aspen airport at no charge, we called when we landed, and they were there when our luggage arrived. When departing note that they only leave "on the hour".
