Location! Location! Location! That's what sells this hotel!

The location, settings and amenities for skiers/boarders cannot beat! That said, I think converting to Park Hyatt is more of an excuse to hike their rates than anything else. Nightly rates have gone up by $100+ for all catagories, while the only visible improvement I noticed was the marble bathrooms.

This is a ski resort, busy in the winters, quite in the summer, virtually empty during spring/fall. Most employees are seasonal, clueless at the beginning of the season, getting better late in the season (March), but then leave. That's just the nature of seasonal resorts.

It is also a relatively small resort, only 276 rooms. Most rooms are of the same size (small) and only a few suites. You cannot even upgrade to suites with GP points.

Despite those shortcomings, I think this resort is great and I go back year after year. Just wish they will upgrade Diamonds to suites someday.
