We spent two nights last weekend at the "Hof" and couldn't have been happier. The hotel itself is quaint and "Euro" feeling, but the rooms (at least ours) seem to have been completely remodeled and they are very nice -- roomy and lovely. We arrived on Saturday after skiing all day and soon hit the fantastic outdoor jacuzzi on the second floor overlooking the slopes at Canyon Lodge (note that Canyon was closed for the season already which made our stay very affordable as rates are a lot cheaper than during the "season" -- Austria Hof is still one of the closer hotels to Main Lodge, which is the only lodge still open this season). What bliss! We soaked for over an hour and almost no one in the jacuzzi with us (the people who were were very nice). After a post-jacuzzi nap, we decided to try the restaurant downstairs so we didn't have to drive and it was excellent!! They had a special on the prix fixe menu (usually 3 courses for $43, now in the "post season" is just $29...an excellent value when most entrees themselves are more than that). We shared the poke salad (delicious -- had it again the next night) and the escargot (also delicious) as appetizers. For entrees I had the sauerbraten which was ok (but the accompanying red cabbage was terrific) and my partner had the elk which he really liked. For dessert, we had the apple strudel and creme brule (which we took back to the room with their encouragement). The service and atmosphere were excellent. The next day, we did it all again: ski, jacuzzi, nap then dinner at restaurant. Again the food and service was excellent (I had New York steak which I liked a lot more than sauerbraten...my partner had excellent osso bucco). Oh, I forgot to mention the complimentary Continental breakfast each day! (No, it's not ALL about the food, but it WAS nice to have it all right there!). I do not like to eat a lot of carbs so was planning to have to go somewhere else for breakfast and was thrilled to see that they offered boiled eggs on the Continental breakfast...we got to the hill to ski sooner because we didn't have to go somewhere else to eat...yay! The bed was the most comfy we've had in our many trips to Mammoth this year. I really can't say enough about this place...it was like a resort...we didn't have to leave except to ski! A treat.
