We stayed in Holiday Inn & Suites Alpensia 3-rooms Apartment (Room 14514, Blk 104) for 2 nights and it was fabulous in every single detail.
Check in counter is a bit far from our apartment block (blk 104) but it wasn't a problem for us as our driver dropped us off right in front of our apartment block, but for those without vehicle, be prepared a 10-15 minutes walking distance to your apartment from the check-in counter, it will be tough if it's snowing and with huge luggage.
The 3-rooms apartment is huge in size with 2 king-bed rooms and 1 ondol room (korean style heated floor). One ensuite bathroom and 1 common bathroom. 2 sets of single blanket set was provided in the ondol room and we actually requested for extra set of blanket and bath tower and it was delivered to us in no time (but bear in mind that it is not customary to give tips in Korea). Both the king-bed rooms's balcony overlooking the ski slopes.
Living area is big and come with an artificial fireplace. A fully-equipped kithchen, you can find all kind of utensils as well as kitchen equipment which you need to prepare a decent meal, for eg. cooking hob & hood, kettle, microwave, rice cooker, fridge. (but be sure to clean all the utensils after used before check out or extra charges will be imposed)
There are many eateries, coffee shops and convenient stores (GS25) within the ski resort, so eating is absolutely not a problem at all, only set back is that you can't find bread & eggs in the convenient stores so for those who prefer continental breakfast, it'll be better if your could stock up some in town before check-into the ski resort.
The ski house is just around the corner in approximately 3-5 minutes walking distance, hotel guest enjoy discount on ski rental by showing the room key card.
During my visit in early December, not all ski slopes are ready and night ski is also not available yet. Alpine Coaster also closed during winter. But for us as a beginner, 1 or 2 ski slopes was good enough. Ski slopes was not crowded as compared with other ski resort which usually packed with tour groups and this was one of the reason i choose Alpensia over other ski resort. Some of the comments here mentioned that the hotel staff is not well-verse in English, but through my experience, i've no problem in communicating with the front deck staff in english, they can speak proper english and understand well.
In overall, Holiday Inn and Suites Alpensia is fabulous in every detail, I will definitely come back again.
