Parkview Hotel Built in 1993, this was the area’s first 5-star hotel. Rooms are comfortable but beds are hard, with little give and no pillow top—nevertheless I slept very well. Extensive recreation facilities include an indoor and outdoor pool, sauna, indoor climbing wall, table tennis, squash, and more. In an exceptionally large open dining room in The Garden Court Western Restaurant, guests enjoy a breakfast buffet that includes everything from western-style omelettes to green matcha cakes. High ceilings, tall windows, and a view of the mountains make it memorable.
