To be honest, I was expecting more from a 5 star luxury hotel. Not up to par with their other luxury hotels. They are a relatively new hotel built up in the mountians above Northstar resort area. There is a gondola at the hotel that takes you right down to Northstar. It was a hit and miss when we visited a while back. I encountered the most helpful and friendly valet person but also encountered a very cold and unhelpful receptionist. Their ski area is great for skiers. If you have kids that do not ski, however, they don't really have an area where you can take them sledding though. Bummer because we really wanted to take our 3 year old sledding. They have a very big and relaxing lounge area where you can sit and relax after a long day out skiing or romping in the snow. The restaurant/food is ok -- not the best. Like I said earlier, service is a hit and miss. I had to wait forever for them to bring my bill to me after I was done eating in their lounge area. As far as family friendly, I'd say they are 4 out of 5 stars. They seem to accomodate kids and families but honestly, didn't feel like they went out of their way. I've been to more family friendly luxury places. They are worth a try, though. We may be back but won't go out of our way to visit with them.
