Early January 2017

Appi Grand was excellent. Our rooms in the Tower, although not brand new in their furnishings, were spacious, well appointed, and with great views. The service was extremely good. The  food in all the restaurants was delicious. The location of the hotel is ideal for easy and true ski in ski out skiing. The facilities of the hotel were extensive, and very good for entertainment of children and toddlers. Thank you again for all your help with the booking.
