... to the Royal Canadian Mint. It was such a lovely day and 29 degrees so we got plenty of sun on our way there. We paid our $6 and signed up to do a tour which was just about to start so we went straight in. We were only with 4 other people so enjoyed having a much smaller tour than the last time. It was actually quiet different from the last tour and finding out about the gold and silver that ...
... technique where the marshmellows melt the chocolate - Beth called it an art form haha.
We also spotted Beth doing something strange so she had to explain... An old Canadian Superstition - when the smoke from the campfire is coming towards you you repeat over and over "I hate rabbits" and supposedly it changes direction of the smoke.
After spending a few hours by the fire we were ready to de-smoke and recharge for our long day tomorrow!

... flip cup, slap cup, cooler your beer in snow etc. It was really fun and I met heaps of nice people. The night kicked on till 4:30 and by this point 2 kegs were gone. For some reason we all thought it would be a good idea to tap the third keg... Safe to say that a total of about 3 beers got drunk from it, which meant that one full keg of beer went to waste. Such a shame but it was time for bed so we all called it quits at about ...
... decided to go back up the mountain. On our way back down we ran into the other three who had on their own accord decided they were ready to tackle the big mountain.
We did a run down with them and of course it was 3:30 so it was time to go home. On the way out Kellie bought a true Canadian treat which was a line of hot maple syrup poured in the snow and rolled onto a ...
Today was my 1st day on a mountain, strapped into a snowboard and it felt good. It is like an extension of my legs that have been missing for nearly a year. However to put a bit of a spin on the situation the weather decided that it wanted to be -30 degrees and a little bit colder with the wind chill. The morning started off with some playing on the beginners slope with everyone teaching them what I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Homewood Suites Mont-Tremblant Mont Tremblant
Homewood is a winner!
This is hands down the best value in mont tremblant. We stayed in 1 bedroom unit, which was very large. Even had an extra murphy bed in an area behind dining room where you could have an extra person/couple stay. Plenty of closets, beautiful view of village and mountainside, full kitchen including dishwasher, very clean and quite upscale. Fireplace was so nice to have in the evening. Full, hot breakfast buffet every day included in price. During the week they even have a light snack service available on the buffet which is also complimentary. Cannot beat the location, views, amenities and price. Staff was very nice as well.
Stayed here one night mid-week in August 2005. Hotel is close to everything. The room was clean and the staff was pleasant. Free indoor parking. Included breakfast (scrambled eggs, sausage, toast, muffins, cereal, etc.) was good but not great. The whole resort of Mont-Tremblant seems more geared toward families than couples. We will probably return.
Great clean hotel. Large rooms, all suites. Fireplaces, dining areas, balconies and great views.
It's not the Ritz, but more than makes up for that in convieniance and spaciousness.
Wonderful Montain Resort
I stayed here in September 2003 and was very surprised at how charming it is in Mont Tremblant. The colorful rooftops and charm of this place really set it apart from any other ski resort we have been to. Most of the hotels are owned by the same company, but this particular Hotel has one of best locations. It is right at the top of Mont Tremblant Village and at the base of the ski mountain. All of the shops, restaurants and activities (and there are lots of great activities!) are just outside the hotel or within a short walking distance. The only thing that is not that close by is the pool which is shared with other hotels and it is a few minutes walk on the other side of the village. The hotel was very clean and the service was good. The rooms are very big, clean and new and they have nice views of the colorful village or the mountains. I was here with my fiance, but we could have fit an entire family in the room. We definitely got our money's worth.
Excellent hotel, great value!
Stayed at the Homewood suites this past weekend and can't rave enough about it!!! We were pleasantly surprised upon walking into our room how immaculate and beautiful the rooms are maintained. In addition, we had a great view of Plaza de Bernard! The 2-double bed suite w/ sofa bed was comfortable for our party of 4. Bottom line, this hotel is all about convenience...the underground parking, free breakfast, ski locks, and friendly staff made for an enjoyable stay. Best of all, the hotel is located right in the middle of the action for both day and night activities...walking distance from the lifts, rental shops, restaurants, and bars. Thanks to Hilton for making my first trip to Tremblant a blast!
You will not be disappointed
great place, very nice room, excellent location, free underground parking, 2 tv's, and a romantic working fireplace. Had a view of the skiers getting on the gondola from my room. Best bang for the buck!!!
only drawback, no room service no restaurant actually in hotel, have to go outside for that, but places 20 foot away.
Great hotel, did the job perfectly.
Stayed here at the beginning of Feb 2005. Very impressed with nearly all of the facilities. Agree with most of the reviews also.
* Spacious rooms with clean facilities.
* Efficient maid service.
* Vending machines for snacks.
* Helpful & friendly reception staff.
* Able to purchase discounted lift passes in reception.
* Able to store skis/snowboards in basement locker.
* Complimentary breakfast plentiful & well-stocked. It was pretty basic in that it only offered about three hot dishes (scrambled eggs, sausages & beans) but it had numerous waffles, English muffins, bagels & bread to toast. Plus the usual cereals (even porridge to set you up for a days' skiing)& juices. It may have not been up to the US usual standards expected but for us Brits it was more than adequate.
* Weekdays there was a "management snack" provided free of charge which was different every day but was usually soup or chilli. Perfect when you come off the slopes & need something to tide you over until dinner.
* The ski locker was inconvenient to get to when hands are full - down a flight of steps after going through two doors & having to use your room key card to gain access. Also a bit isolated & creepy if using on own.
* On a personal note the hotel did not have a dress code for breakfast so it was quite usual for other guests to come down to eat in their pyjamas. Perhaps it's just me but I find it quite offputting sharing my breakfast area with people who may have just rolled out of bed without washing & certainly wearing clothes they slept in all night (& for several nights judging by the repeat showings).
* Would have loved a pool/outdoor spa based at the hotel for soaking away those post-slope aches & pains.
Aside from those minor quibbles the hotel was ideally located - particularly for a beginner skier like me as I could stagger back to the room from the base of the slopes when I'd had enough & the rest of the party could continue. It was excellent value for money & probably stay here again. If I could stretch myself though I might try the Fairmont next time as it had the all-important pool.
Great value and location
My husband and 2 kids stayed here for 5 nights the week before Christmas and had a wonderful stay. Staff was very helpful, the suite had everything we could possibly need, and the short walk to the lifts and gondola couldn't be beat -- especially with small children.
We found the breakfast to be quite adequate, especially since it was included and saved us from the time and expense of going off-site.
The free, indoor parking was also a bonus, though we never used the car once.
Tremblant was fabulous and I'd most definitely stay at the Hilton Homewood Suites again.
Location, Location, Location and a great hotel
Stayed here Christmas week 2004 and this place was the best. Compared to 2 more expensive hotels in the Village (Fairmont . Weston), I think this hotel has a better location. Its at top of the village, steps from the slopes (under 20 seconds walking slow) and the view from my room was incredable (Main lift and slope view). You can also get a view of the Village, if you don't enjoy listening to grooming equipment and snow machines at night, I enjoyed the spectacle. Rooms was very nicely furnished and had everything you would expect in a 3 or 4 star hotel. Indoor parking made check in and check out very easy and having a warm car on very cold nites a bonus. Staff was very freindly and informative.
Two very small negatives and one bigger one
Ski locker room was a little inconvienent (It was down a few steps behind two locked doors and than you had to walk thru the lobby). Still better than bringing the equipment to your room.
The free "hot" breakfast was just ok. Maybe this is what considered a hot breakfast in Canada, but its not up to American standards. The basics were there (bagels/toast/yougurt/fruit/cold cereal/ Juices) but the hot, eggs(blah), waffles (the toaster veriety) were lacking.
My biggest complaint is that there is no hot tub or pool. You have to use the Village facilities which is just a cold three minute walk away.
If your skiing, stay here you won't be disappointed. Tremblant is a great place.
Loved it. Room was big and luxurious. It is right next to the slopes. Prices were very reasonable. Have nothing but great things to say about the Homewood Suites.
