... Two awesome ski days so far and winter storm Vulcan is supposed to hit tomorrow. Sounds like more powder is on the way. PS- wifi access is not great so updates may be a bit infrequent! Oh yeah..... last night there was a band in the bar for Andres birthday party, and we met up with a former student. More ...
Today was the skate mass start! Because I got 12 in the classic race, I started in the 12th spot.
This morning a skier got a concussion crashing around the first corner, so they made it like a car race start. Jeremy Heckler, one of the midwest coaches paced us out of the stadium and around the corner slower, and then the race started at the bottom of the hill. Up until the 1.5k I was around 15th, but it started to spread out and I ...
... putting it all out there. It was an amazing feeling and I was so happy!!! I didn't end up getting the lucky loser spot, but Anna did and so did our other teammate, Hannah, who was in the heat after us! Amanda, who won the race ended up becoming the national champion! It was so much fun cheering for my teammates and watching them succeed! I'm so proud of them and can't wait to cheer super loud for them at the middle-week award ...
I guess old habits die hard. I haven't been in school for 2 academic years yet I still like to take a "break" in March. Lesley, Larissa and I spent 2 days in Burlington Vt. at the Green Mountain Suites. A little shopping and loads of laughs with a bit of wine added made for an enjoyable ...
After our morning ski, we toured a Ben&Jerry factory! After watching a film and then watching the workers, we got to test a new flavor, and then bought some pints for our villa! On the way back we stopped at a shop that had doughnuts, ciders, teas, honeys, syrups, it's was so cool! I ended up getting a tea for the morning that was mountain ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Burlington Hotel and Conference Center
We stayed here during max capacity for the Vermont City Marathon from May 28th through May 31st. We are Starwood Preferred Guest Gold members and were bumbed up to a Club Level room upon checkin :-) They have both a club level floor (serves only on the weekdays) and a SPG floor.
My mother and I planned a weekend trip to Burlington, and she found this hotel on the web and made on-line reservations. We found it with no problem (literally right off the freeway) and the location was convenient to downtown and the freeway to other places around Burlington.
Sometimes you roll the dice with Priceline, on this roll, I came up with the Sheraton Burlington Hotel and Conference Center. I had reserved two rooms through Priceline at a really good rate. I confirm the reservations two days prior to arrival. This was just for a short weekend getaway with some friends.
We stayed at the Sheraton Burlington in July and were quite disappointed. The room quality was low; despite being a nonsmoking room, both the room and the corridor smelled of smoke and some unidentifiable disagreeable odor. The Sunday brunch was overpriced, but the regular breakfast was fine. We couldn't believe how early the bar closed (before 11!). Our small group only wanted a glass of wine, and nothing was open. However, the bartender was nice and cooperative, selling us a glass and suggesting that we drink it in another common area. The pool was indoor and adequate, but there were no towels. After several requests and searches for towels, we got some from our room. On top of all of that, this hotel is right on the main highway. There are better locations, of better quality for less money.
My husband and I had a relaxing weekend getaway. We enjoyed the pool, jacuzzi and other amenities. Very easy to get into town....even using the city bus! I would highly recommend it!
We stayed at the Sheraton in Burlington for two nights in July 2004 using our Starwood points (3K per night). This isn't a high end hotel, but it also isn't priced like a high end hotel either. It's located right off the interstate and only a few minutes from the airport, so it's easy to find. The garden in the center of the hotel is cute, but who's hanging out in the garden? The room we had was an inside room with a nice view of a brick wall, but we didn't care after arriving at 1am and 15 hours of travel (gotta love getting stuck in Philly, I'll learn my lesson about that airport someday). They held our room without issue. The room was average. Didn't have the Sleeper beds. Was large for a standard single room though. This hotel has some charm though with a warm feeling and the courteous staff only adds to the old New England charm. My wife really felt comfortable there. Best of all, no special resort fees like most Starwood hotels in which I've stayed.
Better Than Expected
This hotel exceeded my expectations. The Sheraton website does not contain enough photos to really give a good idea of how the hotel looks inside. There is a lovely atrium restaurant, my room was one of the nicest I have had in a long time, and the hotel's location right off I-89 is convenient for exploring the surrounding area and yet is only a mile or so from downtown Burlington.
Hotel is conveniently located right off the highway (I-89). Just a few minutes to downtown Burlington and just down the street from UVM. Rooms were nice --- However, room temperature was either freezing (when the AC was on --- and it was loud) or warm and stuffy (but quiet) when the AC was off. I was a little 'put-off' that in order to use my laptop I had to pay a fee.....or use their internet access at $10/day. I would probably try someplace else if I was in Burlington again.
I was here for a conference during the summer. One morning the power went out in half the hotel. My room was unaffected, but others had to shower that morning in the dark and without A/C (it was in the 90's and muggy that day). The hotel didn't really seem to know what happened or how to fix the problem. Otherwise, the hotel was pretty standard. The pool area was nice and the rooms are adequate. The staff was able to provide me with maps and local information. While the hotel is actually in South Burlington, it is a short drive to downtown and very close to the University of Vermont campus.
