My cousin and I just came back from a great time in Steamboat. I found this place online from reading many reviews, and also based upon its location. It is right across the street from Gondola Square. Although they have a shuttle that will take you over there, you can easily walk-takes less than 5 minutes. Our room was a studio suite on the lower level, kind of like a basement. We were right across from the laundry and supply rooms but it didn't at all matter. It was quiet and nice. Yes, the room would be considered a little 'dated', but we had a flat screen TV, gas fireplace, a pull out couch, and a murphy bed, a nice kitchen that was stocked with everything but salt and pepper. There were Aveda amenities and paper towels, T.P. I have stayed at many lodges and this one was normal to me. It was clean (we had one towel that looke dlike toothpaste had stained it so we put it on the floor) and very cozy.
I didn't mind walking down stairs. This is a ski town and most condos are either up or down without elevators.
The staff was no less than wonderful with recommendations and tips and help. They would have brought a hot chocolate to your room if they could have!
The shuttle buses are on call during the day, but you can call or the desk will call for you and they will come, either from downtown or from the condos. They do have scheduled stops at certain streets but if you ask, tghey will take you to the restaurant or grocery store if it is on their path. After 5pm, they run every 15 min until 11pm. After 11pm, just take the free city bus, which was real easy.
A word of advice, carry with you some change or $1 bills, b/c the condo shuttle drivers apparently get tipped. We didnt know that, and only tipped them a couple of times. THey are ALL super nice.
This was awesome and I'd stay here again- Can't wait to come back!!!!
