There is such a grab bag of reviews on this hotel. We are her on a family summer vacation. We found our stay to most enjoyable. This hotel has stunning views of the surrounding mountains and is close to the free gondola that takes you into town. The bell staff was very friendly when we pulled up and the desk staff was as well when we checked in. Our luggage was promptly brought up and the room which we found to be very well appointed. It was spacious sunset vista room with a nice walkout balcony. It was a little weird that the tub was covered, but was tastefully done. Some people make it sound like they put some cheap plywood over it and left it. Ours looked more like a finished bench. The bed was comfortable and the sitting area was roomy. The hotel lobby areas are beautiful as are the grounds around it. We went into town to try a variety of restaruants, but the breakfast at the hotel was good. For the price, I thought it was worth it as long as you don't have super high expectations. It's probably not a 4 star, but surely 3 to 3.5. The downside would be the $25/day conveinience fee for internet and ammenities, and the $18/day valet fee which both seem a liitle extreme. Lobby drinks are also expensive. All in all I'd stay here again.
