How to Get There
Comfortable bed and pillows with easy access to lifts and heated underground garage. However there was construction right outside our room and the windows are not sound proofed. Construction work started at 7am.
I've stayed here many times in studios and generally had good experiences, but this was the first time in a large 3 bedroom suite. The booking experience since they switched to the Vail system was quite a bit harder than in previous years and required many calls over a few months to finally sort out. There was a large group of us so I had gone over the availability of extra rollaways and was assured they had them and they were free.
Long story short the rollaways took many calls to actually get up to the room and by then we realized the queen sleeper sofa we had planned to utilize was the worst bed any of us had ever slept on. The floor is more comfortable. The rollaways were only slightly better. So some of us slept soundly in the real beds and some of us didn't sleep at all. I was one of the unlucky rollaway users. I considered getting my own room, but decided to just change my flight and leave two days early instead. The staff was friendly enough, but didn't really seem concerned about providing the best service. Complaints to several hotel staff only got a "oh yea, sorry" response. Even on check out when I said I'm leaving early because the beds are terrible I got the same response. They also charged my card $75 a day for the rollaways which nobody at the front desk even knew what the charge was from and instead told me to call Vail reservations. Vail then told me to cancel my credit card because they also didn't know.
Maid service also fell flat for us. Maybe it's because the larger rooms take so long to clean, but the staff kept showing up when we were all in the room and requests to come back only got a "we'll try". So we only had partial cleanings or not at all most of the time.
LMS dropped the ball on this trip. It's probably time to find another property to stay at when I visit there. The town is close by and the bus is free so it's not completely necessary to stay slopeside. The options for food has become very limited slopeside so we ended up in town every day anyways.
My expectations for this trip was very high and unfortunately they didn't meet them or even come close. I did get a very detailed survey from Vail asking about all sorts of things so I assume they do want to do their best, but maybe my complaints are too picky or expectations too high to meet as I never heard back from anyone.
We stayed in a 2 bedroom 3 bath condo that was in great condition, recently updated and very nicely furnished. Staff was very helpful for check-in and stored luggage for our son who had a 6:30 pm flight. Dining options are very limited in the base area. One hint from our driver, the grocery store in Gunnison does pre-orders and they brought our food right out to the van 2 minutes after we arrived. Very loud in mornings from snowplows, etc even on 5th floor. Kitchen was well stocked.
The first impression I got was that the snow not only cover the most part of down town in Crested Butte but the skiing parts were going to be far away from the Lodge. Surprisingly the lifts are closer than I have ever imagined, so it is recommended to stay at this lodge instead of going to somewhere else. The only thing I was not convinced about is the fact that there is no restaurant within the hotel and you need to go out for food. Actually there is another building next to the lodge where the buffet is really good for 16 dollars or so. A coffee shop is located near conference rooms but not enough for real hungry and to get some calories for the skiing runs.
I just stayed here for 2 nights and absolutely loved it. My room was very comfortable, the location on the mountain is amazing, it’s right at the shuttle stop, and underground garage parking is secure and heated. Staff was very kind and I highly recommend this resort.
