The front desk staff were awesome! The servers and staff in the Mahogany Grille were friendly and on their 'game' for both breakfasts we had. The food was comforting and fueled us for the 5 hours skiing (non-stop) each day we skied. Except for a city truck filled with snow in the middle of the night our first night (by no means the fault of the Strater), everything was great!!!!

Thank you for the great review. I do apologize for the parking, we are still in the process of revamping our lower gravel lot. We are glad to know you enjoyed your stay though!

This is the second time that I have stayed at the Strater. Very unique and priced right. I loved the live music in the lounge and the food was fantastic!
