So I am an experienced traveler and do my research on the best options for places to stay. My girlfriend, our dog and myself planned a last minute trip to catch some night skiing and next day skiing at Camelback Mountain. We looked for the closest place that was dog friendly to stay for one night. There were cheaper and more basic options but the hotel staff is what made my mind up. I asked A LOT of questions, as is my researching nature. Lana Jackson at the hotel was very understanding and even happy to answer anything I was curious about. Upon arrival we were greeted with a special Doggy Bag, including treats, a dog magazine, and even a new dog toy! We were able to take our pup thru the lobby, to his first elevator ride and to the dog designated hall of rooms. Oh and the whole place is beautiful. From lobby fireplaces and couches to the lounge with live music and food and also all of the room was very clean. I expected a slight dog smell in the hall or at least in the room but it was clean, and no smell anywhere. ....
To make my long story longer...
We planned on snowboarding the next day but checkout was 11 (if I remember right)... we asked for a late checkout and both Shannon and Lauren at the front desk were very helpful and allowed us a 1pm check out.... As were racing out the door to get in as much riding as possible the girls said take your time, don't worry about anything till even a little past 1!
We got back about 1:30 and rushed in to make sure we got out asap and again the girls reminded us its ok, and to take our time.
They were all generous, and kind. The place was clean and beautiful.
A thank you again to Lana Jackson, Shannon and Lauren at the front desk for making our trip easy and enjoyable!
So why a 4 instead of a 5?... Well if I had to say anything not positive it would be that you have to pay for the buffet breakfast. We could have stayed in a cheaper place that included breakfast. Also, the parking was difficult, there just wasn't enough. But in fairness there was a lot of snow... but I had a jeep and just parked on a snow mound.
