The best location at Snowshoe .... for me. Let me explain. I really value being able to ski right out the back door onto the type of terrain that I enjoy. Soaring Eagle is at the crest of the abundant black diamond territory accessed by the Soaring Eagle lift, and you don't have to wade through the long lift lines elsewhere but once or twice per day. You ski right out onto Widowmaker or Camp 99, for instance.
The lodge itself has a beautiful and soaring wood-paneled common area. The fires crackle at night and you can have drinks and food there as well. The studios and apartments are quite nice, and the ones we have rented have had excellent views as well. You may encounter the usual missing light bulb or leaky faucet. It is a rental facility, after all.
My regret is that Ember restaurant, which used to be located right in the building, is no longer there.
For people who really want the action of the village, Soaring Eagle might feel a bit out of the way. For me, I positively did NOT want the action of the village. The quiet of Soaring Eagle and the easy ability to go to Ember for dinner made an ideal environment. I have not been back since Ember closed, so I can't speak about that restaurant's replacement.
Lastly, Soaring Eagle has underground parking, which I find very useful.
