How to Get There
Upon arrival things weren't exactly great. There was a power cut (apparently rescheduled plenty of times by the city so long awaited for them but not great for us) and we had to wander around with our phones as flashlights, but we took it as an opportunity to go see breckenridge, which is honestly a lovely place. When we got back the power was on, however the gas was now not working. We had a room with a beautiful view and would have loved to use the fire we had, but were unable to do so. The hot tubs were also not warm. The room showed its age, but was adequate for sleeping and not spending much time. Breakfast was alright, though choices were limited. The view was absolutely stunning, but the circumstances with the power cut meant we were unable to really enjoy the place.
This hotel has all of the bones to be a really great place to stay but really missed the mark in several different areas.
1) We arrived and pulled up to check in. There was someone from staff cleaning the windows on the entry doors. No sooner did we step on the first step to walk up the stairs to enter the lobby but he went inside and did not even hold the door for us or welcome us. The arrival experience is important. That was basically the perfect example of what not to do.
2) We had an upgraded room I believe which had a kitchenette and fireplace in it and had some gorgeous views of the mountains. However, the walls were paper thin! There was a wedding going on that weekend and there was a long, drunken discussion from what sounded like 20 somethings going on in the room next to us from the time we checked in until about 9:00PM at night. We woke up to the same thing the next morning as well, the group clearly being hungover and really struggling. If you have a couple coming to stay with you for their 1 year wedding anniversary.... don't put them next to a bunch of 20 somethings who are going to party. Also - Saturday night we went out for dinner and then came back to our room for a relaxing evening.... nope! The wedding party which had kept us up partying all night the night before and woke us up that morning was now having their wedding celebration on the porch/balcony right below our room until at least 10PM at night.
3) The housekeeping in the room was not great. There was a huge, hard chunk of what looked like banana bread on the floor next to our nightstand. Yummm....
4) The heating units looked like they were going to completely fall apart any minute, the tile in the kitchenette area was broken and dated.
5) The hot tubs were DISGUSTING not to mention not relaxing. When we were looking at booking and I believe booking this stay there was NOTHING mentioned that the resort was under construction. Well.... it was. We tried going in the hot tubs before our couples massage, there were construction materials on the deck in front of the hot tubs, a construction guy was banging away while we were in there and it wasn't before too long we noticed balls of hair floating around in the hot tub and quickly got out.
6) Spa - the couples massage room felt like nothing more than an old office that they quickly rigged to make it a massage room. The carpet had many stains (if you are going to have your clients laying face down for a good part of the massage, invest in some better carpet.). The room also just had a glass wall/windows and curtain separate it from the waiting area, front desk area so needless to say it was not very quiet or private throughout our massage. There were lots of random extension cords with various pieces of electronics plugged into them carelessly strewn about the room. For $100 per person for a 60 minute massage, there should definitely be a much better experience than this. Luckily Amy was absolutely AMAZING! She will definitely get poached by a spa of a higher caliber however.
7) The "free" breakfast was that of a low level hotel outside of Disney World. If you are going to provide such a poor experience you are better off not providing a "free" breakfast which has broken juice machines, powder eggs and the same thing every single day and just providing a free continental breakfast and do it well.
The location was great, the views are awesome, the actual bones of the hotel are good ( you need new carpet in many of the common areas). It is mainly the service and managing customer expectations which need quite a bit of help. The staff was very unimpressive besides Amy as mentioned above and the bartender (Can't recall his name. blond and tall and very personable).
I planned our wedding and honeymoon, my husband planned our one year anniversary trip. I know that he is definitely disappointed in the experience as well but is very unlikely he will say anything. I am saying something though because to see my husband let down and defeated after he tried so hard to do something really nice but to have your hotel and staff constantly provide unpleasant or less than desirable experiences really upsets me.
I'm not sure if it's too soon to for this review I got here this morning and obviously it was too early for a room . The desk person was extremely nice and helpful , promised to call us when the room was ready. She gave us information so that we can head out to town. As promised a little bit after 2 they told us that our room was ready. She had promised us a room with a view, I can only say I was almost in tears when I walked in. It is worth every cent to get a mountain view , breathtaking views. The young man that checked us in, it was his first day it it did not seem like it ,he was also very nice and helpful. I'm a little disappointed that it did not say in their site that the lodge is under construction. Most disappointing is that I'm afraid of heights and I did not expect to go out after it got dark and that is because the site never said that the restaurant is closed for remodeling and there is no place to have dinner, I think this is why I was not able to give it a five. We expected to sightsee during the day and come back to the hotel have a nice dinner and just hang out at the room with this beautiful view and fire place . Either way even if it's my first day I think I'm going to definitely recommend it. I will go in after our stay and continue my review and see if I can give it a 5. I hope I can hear from the staff so that they can put in their sight the remodeling I think it would be very helpful for the next guests coming in.
