""My parents flew in for a couple weeks from MI to visit my family here in WA. The one thing that they had been wanting to see were the lights in Leavenworth. We were able to make a one night reservation in a two bedroom/two bath condo. Initially we were a little hesitant because our experience at another hotel that looked glamorous on the internet turned out to be less than great. MUCH to our surprise, this place has a "you've arrived" feel. My parents thought that my husband & I spent a fortune on the room, but in all honesty it was VERY affordable. Like new condos, very clean, friendly staff, the spa was AHHHmazing, we all raved about the complimentary (hot!) breakfast and it comes with a laundry list of other incredible amenities too! For how cold it was during our stay, and given that I'm 6 months pregnant & we have a toddler, I wouldn't say that the hotel is necessarily within walking distance to the shops & restaurants, but it has so many of its own amenities that this wasn't much of a concern for us. When we wanted to see the shops we just took a two minute drive up the street. I'm a germ-a-phobe, and this is the first time I've stayed anywhere (we travel a LOT) that I didn't cringe when he touched things or ran around on the floor without shoes on - it was SO clean! Having a full kitchen worked out so well with storing all of the baby food/milk. My family & I are looking forward to coming back again (maybe in the summer to take advantage of the mini golf course?) and I'm planning a girls weekend with my friends in the coming weeks at this very location because our experience was so incredible. Pretty much guarantee that ANYTIME we go back to Leavenworth, we will be staying here. :) Thanks, Icicle Village Resort!""
