“Fun for the whole family”
Reviewed February 15, 2011

Stayed for a night with wife and 2 children. Perfect ski on ski off with ski valet right where you enter mountain. Pool and jacuzzi afterward were perfect with great views of mountain at sunset. Rooms were very comfortable with lots of seating, Euro style beds, and conveniences including fully stocked kitchenette, WiFi and IPOD docking station. Dinner at Harrimans was well prepared and service was great, General manager of the resort even spent time helping out waitresses and making sure everyone was enjoying their meals.
Hotel staff was very accomodating, Valet staff for Parking and skis was excellent makes the whole ski experience with young children much more relaxing.
Great

Outstanding value for midweek included a slopeside room, two daily lift tickets, and above average continental breakfast in its daily rate. Clean room with very comfortable Murphy bed and full kitchenette with stove, microwave, & refrigerator. WiFI free. Great slopeside view. Outodoor heated swimming pool, hot tubs, and full spa and health club. All very nice. Upon our initial arrival on Wednesday night, front desk personnel we met were friendly and helpful. When we originally booked the reservation and again upon arrival, we asked for a very quiet room & we were assured it would be very quiet. The first night WAS very quiet. However, the second night, Thursday night, was awfully loud, and exactly as an earlier reviewer (LucyMassachusetts- tripadvisorreview 2/9/11) described, "A circus act in the room above and bedside". The hotel allows visitors to wear ski boots inside the hotel, which is a horrible policy. We heard ski boots above our room as late as 1AM and as early as 6:45AM (slopes open at 9AM). The policy in the hotel literature states that quiet time is enforced after 10 PM - it isn't. To further illustrate this environment, at 10:45PM, the second night of our stay, I opened our room door to a group of children loudly running up and down the halls without adult supervision. Overall, this affected our sleep greatly, especially after a day of skiing.
Obnoxious, inconsiderate peopIe stay everywhere and I have made it a policy not to judge a location based on a few irritating visitors when management enforces their stated policies and decorum is maintained. However, when a hotel is lax about their policies, it poorly reflects on their overall management, and a deluxe hotel becomes as good as a economy hotel.

My husband and I spent one night at the Grand Summit Hotel. This was a quick midweek ski getaway, and the hotel was offering a good rate, which included two lift tickets. We have stayed here before, and on this visit, we found some things had improved. The staff was much friendlier and more helpful, the room had been updated with an iPod/iPhone docking station, and the buffet breakfast (included in our room rate) was excellent. The WiFi connection (free) was fast and problem-free.
There were a few things that needed attention, however. The hotel bills itself as ski in-ski out. When we were there, they had had a lot of snow and no one had made a path from the hotel parking lot to the base of the mountain. We were forced to clamber over a very, very high embankment carrying our skis and poles, post holing and sliding all the while. Someone could have at least shoveled a path.
The room was nice, but the doors on the media cupboard would not stay closed, and with it so close to the bed, there was no room to pass when they were open. The handle on the hot water tap in the bathroom came off in my hand. I screwed it back on. Finally, we were on an upper floor, and even with the room heating unit off, it was much too hot, and we had to crack open a window - in below zero temperatures. The bed was comfortable, though, and we enjoyed a quiet night's sleep - important if you are planning to be up early the next morning.

My large family just came back from a great week of skiing. While the snow was great, the vacation was made all the better by the ski on – ski off location of the hotel… Right at the base of the lifts.

The unit we had was superb. Bedroom with two queen size beds, sleeping loft with king size bed and a fold out sofa in the “great room” (kitchen, living room, dining area). Third floor unit overlooked the heated pool and mountain from the loft, and the valley from the main floor. Three bathrooms made for no waiting after skiing or the pool. Three tvs were a pleasant surprise when we came in ready to relax.

The Grand Summit cost a little more than the places down the road, but the convenience of the location and the meals in the room made it worth the money. Try the Mt. Snow Ale on tap and the crab cake appetizer at Remington’s.

Stayed in Grand Summit for 3 nights in January 2011 for a skiing trip. As a ski-in ski-out hotel it is just perfect, right on the slopes and steps away from all the lifts. A tip to skiers: if you come during a weekend or a major holiday/kids winter break time don't check your skis in with a bellboy, take them with you to your room instead - you'll save yourself 15-20 minutes of waiting in line to pick them up in the morning. The decor is dated but everything is clean and functional. The breakfast was included in our package and was kind of edible, but we ended up just eating the food we brought with us. Housekeeping is very good. The restaurant downstairs was also OK, there's a small Bar & Grill place steps away from the hotel serving Mexican cuisine, which was surprisingly good. The little waffle house is a great quick snack stop, try their chocolate waffles. So, overall, it is a convenient and guest-friendly (but a little noisy during peak times) place. A little on a pricey side but if you come to ski you pay for proximity to lifts.

Great location right on the mountain. Nice hotel. Nice view of the slopes. Regular rooms are small for a family of 4. Going back this February and getting a larger room. Expensive during president's week. Great free breakfast buffet included. Pillows not comfortable. Going to bring own pillow next time. Long walk to the ski school was a drawback, but overall we enjoyed it.

I only stayed here for one night for a wedding and was surprised to find that the ski slope practically ends in the lobby. It reminded me of a James Bond film. I wished I had known more about the hotel amenities but its website is terrible - - totally uninformative. The staff was working hard and friendly at the same time. Food was very good. The hallways were dated but was happy to find that the room was large, looked brand new, with flat screen TV and lots of channels (but no HBO, etc.). They did not inform of free Wi-fi but I found it was available. Parking was very limited but valet was included in the room rate and they performed well despite being very busy. Outdoor heated pool in middle of winter is a great treat. Roads and weather could be a factor when visiting and I'd be more comfortable traveling there in a 4WD - - it is a ski mountain after all.
