Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Excellent resort, however, could use a few upgrades, an 80’s feel. Room service meals could’ve been much better. Restaurant is mediocre, could use a Gordon Ramsay overhaul.

1/5 Terrible

Travelled with family, Business traveller
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Although in a very beautiful and convenient location, the way my sister and I were treated upon checkout was not just unacceptable but fraudulent. The stay was so so the staff were friendly mostly but there was not only a fee charged to use fitness/pool facilty that was closed but we experienced the most awful service upon our departure. I was left a voicemail that my card would be charged as our room smelled Smokey. I tried to call back several times to receive a proper explanation, incident report or at bare minimum a receipt of the payment they took and they are refusing to take my call. We do not smoke and there was certainly no smoking in our room whatsoever so this is absolutely fraudulent. They have charged my credit card and will not offer any explanation. There are many other resorts in the Rockies that respect their returning guests and this is not a hotel I would recommend.

Great to wake up on the ski hill. Seemed ridiculous to have to pay extra resort fees during covid when hot tub gym spa etc closed during covid I feel theses should be waived. I called ahead to ask about dining options and were told room service only but found out there was a dining option but was then booked and too late! Very frustrating!
