I recommend the Killington Grand for a family ski vacation in the East Coast and for couples if you don’t mind legions of children (at least in presidents week). This is definitely among the best values for slopeside accommodations in the East Coast.
The resort is located a short walk to the slopes. The walk is through a bridge that can get rather icy -so caution is recommended. The resort also offers bus service. Killington is a very nice place to ski, but if I have to choose in the East Coast my preference is Okemo and Stowe.
The studio we stayed was bigger than a regular hotel room with the added benefit of the kitchenette. The bathroom –although small- has two sinks. The place has been renovated and the bedding (Murphy bed and sofa) was surprisingly comfortable. Very clean and good bathroom goods. Flat screen TV and dvd player. Large safety box. Wifi was complimentary, fast and reliable.
Service was overall very good, efficient, enthusiastic and cordial. However the valet service was understaffed, so be prepared to park the car yourself and bring your luggage to the room. Both times at check in and check out it was rather chaotic. The few guys that work there, were very nice but not enough personnel. I would have given the place five stars if it weren't for this issue.
You can leave your skis and boots in a staffed locker room. The skis were always delivered promptly and the space to put your boots on, large enough to handle the crowds at pick times.
Very nice spa and gym. Large outdoor heated pool with view to the slopes. Two large outdoor whirlpools. The whirlpools tend to get crowded and full of kids. Not very relaxing when kids jump on the hottub or throw snow balls. Also the temperature should be set up much warmer. When resorts are going to find out that little kids do not belong in hot tubs?
Nice common areas, particularly by the fireplace.
The restaurant was very good and definitely worth a visit. Excellent ribs, fish and fresh salads. However this is a family place so expect the occasional screaming child, plenty of ipads with video games and the like. Not a very romantic atmosphere the days we were there but excellent food and service.
The included breakfast buffet deserves it own section. Awesome. One of the best egg stations that I have ever visited, including delicious waffle station. Fruits, freshly baked muffins, potatoes and much more. Extraordinaire service. It really helps you delay the lunch and ski through lunchtime avoiding the crowds.
