OK - first the good - the Towne Place Suites hotel is fairly new, clean and seems well run. It is conveniently located at the Montage Mountain, area but I would NOT say the base of Montage mountain as that term is a misnomer, get to that later!
My compliaint is that compared to Residence Inns that we usually stay at, the place is a little small, even for us as a family of three and not physically large either. We booked a 2 room suite and were quite pleased but the living area was small along with the bedrooms. Usually in a Residence Inn there are 2 bathrooms in a 2 bedroom unit and the one bathroom was..you guessed it...small. The pool...right nice but small.
The breakfast bar was also a little skimpy, I was expected usually freshed scrambled eggs maybe some fresh fruit but none to be had. Just microwaveable breakfast sandwiches, waffle maker with bread, prepackaged yogurt and cereals. Not bad, but again I was expecting a little more.
I do not think they had any in-room movies to rent either.
Getting back to the location - it was convenient to all the shopping and restuarants but looking at the ski area from hotel, it seems like you could almost walk to it, but as I found out, you have to drive back down the hill to Montage Mt Road and then take about a 10 minute ride up and around the side of the mountain. Now the area was closed for the season but that is something to keep in mind for next ski season. I am not sure if the hotel operates a shuttle to the ski area but that would seem like good idea.
In summary it is nice, clean and new If you can deal with a smaller version of a Residence Inn with the small breakfast, then I would recommend it.
