We stay here each year for a ski weekend and while we've liked it in the past, the place is startin to show it wear. The rooms on the "new" wing are all the same but the pillows and linens are looking and feeling beat. We were in a king size room and they just gave us 2 pillows that weren't even king. We added the one in the closet and well, there were just flat. The heat is the room was great and when you put on the gas fireplace, it's was really warm. We never turned on the TV, but it was a TV with a picture tube. As so many places now have flat screen HD TVs, those places with the older style TVs are looking, well, old. They have a huge outside hot tub which was great even with the shaky support rail to get into it (it hasn't been fixed in the three years we've been there)
My biggest issue was the breakfast that was provided with our stay. You could have paid a whopping $21.00 for the breakfast buffet but it ws included in our stay, however, if you had a dairy allergy, you were out of luck. The only protein, scrambled eggs, had cheese cooked into it. The first day when I asked the chef made some plain eggs for me, however, the last day we were there they just had scrambled eggs with cheese. The other option ws Cheese blintzes. When I asked for plain eggs the server went into the kitchen then the hostess came up to me and said "The chef has used all the eggs and all of them are with cheese" Now we were one of the first people to eat when it opened so we could get to the mountain. I was hard to believe that in the whole hotel there weren't 2 eggs without cheese, or knowing that people had dairy allergies, plain eggs with cheese on the side. Ridiculous!
Additionally, we heard from some other people that were with our group but stayed in the older section, that the fire alarm went off at 4 am and was running for a long time. They all had to get in their cars and no one every came out to tell them what was going on. Finally, one of them went to the front desk.
We will probably not stay back at this hotel next year when we trek to Stowe to ski. The Von Trapp Lodge looks pretty nice...
