We first stayed here 3 years ago, and then returned December 2012, and were pleased to find that none of the standards we'd appreciated the first time have been relaxed.
The Inn has unusually nice rooms for a ski lodge-type of accommodation (i.e., I'm not comparing it to a Four Seasons at a see-and-be-seen ski resort). Higher quality materials went into the construction, and design and details go well beyond "keep the costs down" standards. There is an attended reception desk and they will respond reasonably quickly to any request; on the other hand, staffing levels are a notch below a full-service hotel. Again, not a problem for us, but did seem "quieter" as a result.
Bernards, the restaurant, is truly excellent - it would do just fine in Deer Valley, for example, and yet it is usually serenely quiet. And it has something very unusual in most lodges today - a real, wood-burning fireplace.
Solitude itself is a great mountain with notoriously non-existant lift-lines. All-in-all, this is a great choice of a "restorative" ski vacation.More
