Beats the Big Hotels by a Mile! A review of EagleRidge Lodge
Feb 2006--Went for a conference at the Steamboat Grand. Grand has so-so reviews so opted for a studio at Eagle Ridge. We had a great time, and we're really glad we chose Eagle Ridge. Two minor negatives:
The studio (#313 I believe) view was into the portico. However, being winter, we were hardly ever in our room except after dark, so there wasn't much to see. Also, could have used more closet and drawer space. There were actually 3 empty drawers in the kitchen, so we made do nicely enough.
The room was spacious for a studio and very well appointed. Spotless, too. Complimentary bottle of wine was a nice touch. The staff is extremely helpful, polite, and knowledgeable. The shuttles were fantastic--getting to/from the gondola was very easy (a two-minute ride, but you don't want to walk it with skis). The ski lockers are right by the hotel entrance where the shuttle meets you. The driver hops out and helps you with your skis, etc. They even have coffee inside and outside for you (not that you'll have time to drink it; the shuttles are so frequent!). The pool is well maintained (a bit cool for some), and the fitness center is well-equipped. When I'm back at Steamboat, I'll definitely stay at Eagle Ridge again (though I'll probably pop for the 1 bdrm).
