The Fitz Roy is one of the longest-established hotels in Val Thorens, right in the centre, in the place Caron. It upgraded from 4 to 5-star in summer 2013. It has competition from the luxury Altapura (new in 2011/12 season), towards the bottom of the resort, by the Plein Sud piste; the Koh-i Nor, a luxury hotel at the top of the resort which opened in December 2013; and the newest 5-star (opened December 2015), the Pashmina.
The Hotel le Val Thorens was upgraded to 4-star for winter 2012/13. It is part of the same hotel group as the Fitz Roy. New in this category in 2014/15 are the Hotel 3 Vallées, upgraded from 3 star, and the Hotel Kashmir, which is at the existing Résidence Hameau du Kashmir. The latest 4-star hotel in Val Thorens is Fahrenheit 7, which is the successor to the old Hotel Mercure.

Our apartments page has information about every résidence in Val Thorens, with photos and descriptions, and a location map.
There are quality apartments in well-established résidences such as Montana, Les Balcons de Val Thorens, and Montagnettes, and in new luxury developments, like le Hameau de Kashmir, Montana Plein Sud, and Koh-i-Nor (opened in December 2013). A notable 4 star résidence is Oxalys, which houses the Oxalys restaurant, well-known for its chef, Jean Sulpice, who has been awarded two Michelin stars. Another is the Sabot de Vénus, with eleven large, luxury apartments in the centre of resort.
Towards the budget end of the market, big groups of students and noise, can be an issue. Amongst the better bets are the Chamois d'Or and the Cheval Blanc.
To rent a privately-owned apartment, often at a cheaper price, try one of the estate agents, such as Agence La Cime, or Val Thorens Immobilier. They have a large number of apartments, which they let on behalf of the owners. They are usually in résidences hosting a mixture of owner-occupiers, season workers, and holidaymakers.
The tourist office also produces a list of privately-owned apartments, with contact details so you can get in touch with the owners directly.
