There are lots of things to like about this studio. It has nice, modern appliances. Outstanding location a block away from the gondola, shops, and restaurants. Close to a large grocery store. Lots of utensils and cleaning supplies in the kitchen. The staff is extremely helpful and quick to respond to my needs. It’s a great policy to have a quiet time after 10:00. No disturbance from neighbors. The problem is there’s too little space. The entryway is too small to remove ski boots and gear without getting the floors all dirty. (The broom and dustpan they provide is not enough.) There’s barely enough space to store one set of skis and boots. There is not enough space to store two. There’s no dresser cabinet. Instead, there’s cubby holes hanging in a closet that are too small for one person’s 6 days of clothes. (They do have washer dryer facilities and have provided detergent.) This leaves insufficient horizontal space for a helmet or wet gloves to dry. The dining table is too small, and it’s hard to navigate the chairs around the sofa bed and ottoman. One suggestion would be to replace the sofa bed and two of the three end tables with a dresser and comfortable chair. This would add horizontal space and free up space in the closet for storage. It would make the table and chairs easier to use. Of course, removing the sofa bed eliminates a sleeping option, but this studio is too small for two skiers or boarders, even if they share the same bed.

Photos of room are deceiving. The room is MUCH SMALLER than a standard hotel room. There is NO PLACE to store clothing or anything for that matter. The unit relies on fireplace heat making the bathroom FREEZING!

Stayed at the Gondola Lodge and it was wonderful. The unit we were in was very nice, warm & cozy with the fireplace. No wait for hot water! The minifridge helped keep our soft drinks cold. There were plenty of channels on tv to watch, which was awesome to see as we winded down for the evening and got ready in the morning. Loved the dimming lights and that the entire complex was a noise free zone. We got lots of rest and enjoyed everything nearby because of it's location; in the heart of everything. We felt very safe and overall the lodge was impressive. Thanks to Jennifer for the ease of communication and access. I definitely recommend this place, even to picky folk.

There are many rooms and bathrooms, so it was very good to travel with family. There was a billiard table and a jacuzzi, so I had a great time.
