“Tops! I see why this is rated #1. Every time I return to the Grand Lodge I feel very welcomed. From the greeting by the bellman, to the prompt front desk service, to clean, comfortable large rooms, it is the best of the mountain. I love the Grand Lodge is so closed to the ski lift, biking trails, restaurants and shops. The mountain express bus is great for a quick trip down the mountain to the town of CB. Try the restaurant for breakfast, and evening adult beverages by the fire. I rate the Grand Lodge 5 stars!”
