Ski Hotel Accommodation Advice

Ski hotel accommodation has many benefits but also a few drawbacks. This page will give you a useful guide to hotel ski holiday accommodation, explain the pros and cons and how to go about getting the best place and best deal you possibly can.

Why go for ski hotels?

Ski hotel accommodation can be a good choice for most people but particularly useful for individuals and couples looking for flexibility, comfort and privacy. A ski hotel is often the 'higher-cost' option when looking for ski holiday accommodation. This assumes you are staying in a standard class or luxury hotel. There are some very low cost budget hotels around but with the low cost sometimes comes inferior accommodation and food.

Pros and cons of ski hotels

Hotel in ski accommodation terms normally means catered at with at least breakfast, usually half board including breakfast and evening meal. You may also get a room only. Hotel standards can vary greatly in terms of accommodation- and quality of food. The rates do not always reflect the hotel standards. The star rating is also not necessary a great indicator for quality. Prices vary depending on hotel location in the resort (ski in / ski out), comfort, facilities and seasonal demand.

The great thing with hotels in general is that you can have flexible start and end date to your ski trip. Hotels take bookings by the day, not week and tend to be very flexible on the length of your stay. Ski hotels also tend to have a lot of extras included. Large ski lockers, boot warmers, free car parking, fitness- and wellness facilities, airport transfers to name a few.

A big draw back of hotel based ski vacations is often the price. Especially highend ski accommodation in prime locations next to ski lifts and slopes can holidays come with hefty daily rates. If you are willing to walk a distance to the slopes, take a ski bus or even commute into the ski resort you should be able to get some great deals on hotels too.

Things to consider when looking for ski hotel accommodation:

>> Distance to ski lift, slopes and resort centre
>> Tourist tax included in the price
>> Type of board and what is included in the meals
>> Facilities available free of charge
>> Any extras such as discount ski pass, ski transfers etc. available
>> Check in and check out time - might just get you some more ski hours
