Fantastic location in the heart of Chamonix - a quick walk to top restaurants and less than 3 minutes to the ski bus! Charming Alpine-esque decor, good sized rooms and beautiful common areas. Good sized ski room with decent lockers for each room and nice pool/hot tub area perfect for apres ski. Speaking of apres ski - great spread set out each afternoon/early evening with a nice selection of cakes, savoury appetizers. The lounge in the back is a great place to reconvene after the day and make evening plans.
Very nice staff who were incredibly helpful on booking restaurant reservations, answering ski questions, getting tickets, lessons etc.
A few lessons learned about the hotel and chamonix:
1. Eggs at breakfast are included - not readily apparent from the menu but we had scrambled eggs and omelettes as part of breakfast. (some people have commented on the price of breakfast but I thought the buffet was very ample and good value)
2. If your party has a mixed variety of skiing abilities, le Tour or Les Houches are the best bets.
3. Intersport ski rental location delivers and picks up from the hotel! and you get a 20% discount as a guest - nice!
4. Altitude sickness exists :( - our entire party almost passed out and/or threw up when we took the cable car up to the Aguille du Midi. yuck!!
