Typically when we ski, we stay in a condo, but because we decided to take this trip at the last minute, we booked a room at the Grand Summit Hotel. After this trip we may never go back to the condos. The beds were very comfortable, soft with plush down comforters. We parents had a room too ourselves with a king size bed, flat screen tv, and pull out couch. The kids shared a murphy bed in the main area of the room which also had a flat screen tv and a blu-ray player. There is a full kitchen with a small stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and full-size refrigerator. Also a table that seats 6. From the aromas in the hallway, it seems like a lot of people take advantage of the kitchen to cook meals. That may bother some folks, but we were okay with it. Bathroom was modern and clean, the shower curtain liner was brand new. We had plenty of room. There is a shuttle that will take you to the various lodges, or you can ski in/out directly from the hotel. The staff was extremely nice, they all made us feel very welcome. The breakfast buffet was very good. We didn't hear noise from any other rooms, but we were on the 3rd floor, so no one was above us. We really enjoyed the pool, hot tub, and steam room. You don't often get a chance to swim in an outdoor pool in January! We had a great weekend, and we'll definitely be back.
