... a Ferrari to fit in, but it was a descent Volvo, can’t complain. We reached the Riviera Marriott Hotel La Porte de Monaco…a mouthful…I know, and settled down. I had no idea what was to come, especially in a country a tad over four thousand miles away from home, but I trusted my father being that he’s a veteran of Monaco, a true “been there done that” place to mark off of his list. During my stay in Monaco, we were able to venture off ...

I was booked on an 11:20 pm flight out of Anchorage that arrived in New York at 1:30 the next day. However, Serena was taking a bus into Penn Station getting there at 7am. I wanted to make it easier for us to coordinate traveling together (and I kinda wanted to see her sooner) so I crossed my fingers and rolled the dice on switching my ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Minerals Resort & Spa Vernon
My boyfriend and I recently went to this resort so we could ski and celebrate New Years. What a mistake. We booked this "resort" based on the advertising of their wonderful spa services, etc. You can imagine how very happy we were when we arrived to find out no spa services would be available until "next year!" Advertising the spa is just their way to lure in guests they can not even service. The spa itself is beautiful but very small. There are only around 5 rooms for services. Especially on a holiday week, there is no way they can accomidate the hotel guests. I do have to say the technicians were great (they "fit us in" after we blew a stink and mentioned we might go down the road to Roomers for a massage. We heard they are great and cheaper!) Not anywhere on their site or when we made the reservation had we been told we had to book spa services in advance. We thought it would be more like the Norwich Spa and Resort (because their prices are comparable) which is excellent. The useless hotel staff thought telling us that the pool/jacuzzi was included would put a smile on our face...It did until we saw a playground of kids....EVERYWHERE! The one nice thing though was their outdoor heated swimming pool...very nice after a day of skiing.
My husband and I needed a little ski vacation away from the kids. Another couple we know had recently gone on a ski trip and had a blast! We decided to take their advice and stay where they stayed. They stayed for a weekend at Minerals Hotel last February. So my husband booked us for a weekend there too.
First let me say I used to make annual ski trips to this place and rent 2 or 3 large condo's on the slopes for a week at a time about 8 years ago. The good old days as I have come to call them. The days when the stay was reasonable, the staff helpful and the price included lift tickets. Why else would you stay at a slope side resort I ask?
I was not impressed at all. I am very familiar with the area and the surrounding hotels. Put it this way, it wasn't much better than staying at the Days Inn down the road. For the amount of money they charge a night, you would think everyhing would be perfect. The floorplan of some of the rooms didn't make sense. Why would you have a fireplace with a tv on top, directly across, from a counter with a sink? Aren't the fireplace and tv supposed to be across from a couch or the bed. That was inconvinient, and even though the tv had a sliding tray, I still could only see 1/2 of it from the bed, unless I sat on the couch. Room setup not very well thought out. I attempted to go relax and go the spa. I couldn't, why you ask? Because it was closed. I decided to then just suck it up and go to the pool. That wasn't much better, unless you truly enjoy being in a pool with 25 screaming little kids. There are also 2 jacuzzis, and an outdoor hot tub (pool). I didn't even attempt to go into any of the jacuzzis, since it was just an even smaller area jam packed with kids. Apparenly all of their parents can't read, or they just chose to ignore the sign that said "no kids under the age of 12 allowed in the jacuzzi." The outdoor pool was the place to be. I was able to be out there for a FEW minutes before getting splashed and having my drink poured out by one of those fine little children that found it possble to also ruin that pool as well. Kites, the restauarant/bar upstairs wasn't bad. They were understaffed, and a little pricey for the food.
Loved the Condos!!
We stayed in a three bedroom condo - it was AMAZING! Woodburning fireplace, spiral staircase to a huge master suite. A deck with an unbelievable view of the mountains and of Mountaincreek's slopes, which run right into the condo complex! We were even within walking distance of Mountaincreek's skilift. We also walked to the spa, which was incredible. The indoor pool alone was so great - and the Elements Spa was world class. What a gem of a place!!
Minerals Spa is truly an oasis. We have been there twice and will go again next month. The rooms are brand new and pleasant, with gas fireplaces, microwave, fridge and wetbar in the larger rooms.
I will break my review down into four categories:
We had a great time at Minerals Resort and I highly recommend this hotel. Just 50 miles from the George Washington Bridge, this new, luxurious full-service resort has it all, with many of the facilities indoors for year-round use... superb indoor tennis courts, indoor gymnasium and running track, a huge 6,000 square foot fitness club, plus an elegant full service spa.
I love minerals
This place was great for the whole family. I got a spa treatment while me huband went gollfing and my kids played in the coolest pool Ive ever seen at a hotel. The rooms wer very elegant. A+++ vacation.
The treatments I had at the Elements Spa were fantastic. The whole experience was very special and Elements Spa has to be one of the best spa facilities I have ever been too.
The staff were very friendly and extremely compotent. The facilities are new and very comfortable and the treatments (mud body treatment and massage) were among the best I have had.
Highly recommend the spa.
