what we need to observe and compete with

These other moutain resort properties were voted best 100 hotels on the North American continent... Solaris can do the same. These are our competition now.

Items

Hotel Stowe Mountain Lodge, Vermont

For all its historic cachet and white-steeple quaintness, Stowe had begun to grow a bit musty—until this $200 million masterpiece, built to help the... more

$$$$

Editor's Pick

Notes:
Were this property located in the Vail Valley, it would probably not have made the Gold List. Our competition is much stronger in the Colorado and Norther Rockies.
Four Seasons Resort Jackson Hole
Hotel Four Seasons Resort Jackson Hole, Jackson

With lift tickets nearing $100 a day, ski towns have lost their slacker image, but it wasn't until 2003 that the Four Seasons opted to open a property in... more

$$$$

Editor's Pick

Amangani
Hotel Amangani, Jackson

Amanresorts, which specializes in the über-luxe and superdiscreet, built its three-story, 40-suite lodge on the edge of a butte overlooking the Snake River... more

$$$$

Editor's Pick

Notes:
At opening, it had the distinction of being the only hotel in the Aman portfolio to be unprofitable.
Stein Eriksen Lodge
Hotel Stein Eriksen Lodge, Park City

Norwegian Stein Eriksen, who won a gold medal for giant slalom at the 1952 Olympics and then three gold medals at the 1954 World Championships, is director of... more

Editor's Pick

Notes:
Was also highly rated by the ratings companies - for years being among the handful rated both five stars and five diamonds.
Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch
Hotel Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch, Vail + Beaver Creek

For those who prefer the exclusivity of Beaver Creek to the crowds at Vail, the ski-in, ski-out Ritz-Carlton is the best place to stay. Tucked into the gated... more

$$$$

Editor's Pick

Notes:
As I was onboard for the opening, I know they openly told employees at orientation that they wanted their first rating to be five-star/five-diamond. They got four-star/four-diamond.
The Little Nell
Hotel The Little Nell, Aspen

The Nell is so Aspen—i.e., it's a cute little (92-room) home-away-from-home chalet where everyone happens to be wearing Prada skiwear and there's a... more

$$$$

Editor's Pick

Notes:
Has been rated five-star, five-diamond since opening and is now one of the longest such rated hotels in the US.
The Arrabelle at Vail Square
Hotel The Arrabelle at Vail Square, Vail + Beaver Creek

The ski-in, ski-out Arrabelle hotel is the keystone of chic Vail Square. Opened in the Lionshead area, this tiny "village" is modeled on quaint Mitteleuropa... more

$$$$

Editor's Pick

Notes:
An example of a hotel not loved by the raters - only one of 2,500 hotels rated 4-diamonds - but loved by the traveling public.
