Great Vail Hotel

Hotel is well located to ski area, great restaurants, apres ski locations and shopping. The breakfast buffet was excellent and a great way to start the day. Our only disappointment was that the pool and spa areas were small and crowded. However, overall it was a great hotel with nice rooms and friendly service. We would definitely stay at this hotel again in the future.

Excellent choice in Vail

Easy walk to bars and restaurants; fairly quick walk to Vista Bahn lift. New hotel, very nice. Verandah with multiple hot tubs. We got an awesome deal [...] for this hotel so liked it even more -- regular price is a bit high. But hey, it's Vail.

Good Hotel in the Village

This is a very good hotel with a great location in Vail Village. I wanted a reasonably priced hotel within walking distance of everything - and it met those criteria. It does have a slightly corporate feel to it, but still charming enough to remind you that you are in a ski town. I would definitely go back.

Nice Spa

For a ski hotel the ski concierge was poor and not helpful. Hotel was clean but there was no makeup mirror and the lighting was poor. Spa was lovely.
