My husband and I just stayed at the Iron Horse Resort for 4 nights. Overall, the hotel was not luxurious, but it was fine for our needs. We stayed in the sport studio, and it was great for 2 people. It was handy to have a kitchenette, as we were able to prepare our own breakfast and save time and money before we hit the slopes.
- ski-in/ski-out access (the lodge is situated on the side of the mountain, and you can access Winter Park resort via the "Corridor" run -- if you're looking at the trail map, look at the bottom left)
- 2 hot tubs
- friendly staff
- on complimentary bus route (you can wait inside and see when the bus pulls up to the hotel entrance)
- the rooms could use some updating (towels, linens, carpets, and decor)
- the hotel restaurant was just OK (it has a quaint ambiance, but the food wasn't as good as we had expected - it was OK, but a little overpriced for the quality)
- no internet access in the rooms (you need to go to the lobby with your laptop, pay $5, and access the internet while you sit there)
As a whole, we were pleased with our stay. If you're looking for a place where you can easily access the mountain, this resort is in a great location. If you don't rent a car, and are looking for a place where you can walk to restaurants/bars, you might want to consider another hotel. However, if you have a car, getting around shouldn't be a problem. (This hotel is located about 2 blocks from the Winter Park Resort Base, but you need to drive or take the bus to get to downtown Winter Park.)
