The Good
Most guest reviewers were highly pleased with the service and amenities of this hotel and had happy stays, judging from the reviews read for this report.

Guests found nicely-appointed, clean and comfortable rooms at the hotel. They spoke of the good size kitchenettes being handy, enjoyed the free snacks in the rooms, and balconies that provided pleasant views and a quiet place to relax. They enjoyed the complimentary toiletries and comfortable beds. Some guest's children were pleased to be able to keep the sock monsters they found on the beds.

The staff went out of their way to impress the guests with welcome sweets and hot beverages at check in and by accommodating guests in any way possible. Many appreciated special treats to celebrate birthdays and special occasions.

Guests found the location ideal for walking to restaurants and shops in the Village, yet in the quiet section of the village. 

Several guests found the hotel to provide good value overall and were pleased with the free shuttle service to the slopes and to have a hot tub to relax in after skiing.

Dining on site was also praised by some guests who said it was excellent and many were pleased with free hot beverages at the reception area.
The Bad
Guests were very pleased with the hotel and their stays and consequently there was very little by way of complaint in the reviews, but one theme arose; guests did not like paying extra for parking.

Some guests found the parking tight in the underground lot and many mentioned the extra parking fee of $20 per night (before tax). Several reviewers mentioned that there was free parking about a 5-minute walk away.
