Met my Expectations!

The Vail Plaza Hotel met my expectations of a First class hotel. The entrance and lobby were very inviting as well as the staff being very hospitable. Room was very comfortable and spacious. Great selection with the buffet breakfast which was included with the price of the room. Great location being in Vail village. Look forward to a return visit.

Sebastian

Very nice boutique hotel. We didn't have any view but it didn't matter to us as we were outside most of the time. Great for a few nights. I'd likely go with a view room as one can feel a bit cramped in the village as space is at an enormous premium.

All the shops and restuarant are in walking distance. The best way to travel around Vail village and other neighborhood town village is to take the shuttle bus. This local transportation is absolutely Free.

'saffire' and 'up the creek' are both excellent. didn't particularly care for the 'swiss chalet' which is right across the street from the plaza.

Great hotel

We had a great stay- they upgraded our room on arrival (it was pretty empty there) and the room was beautiful and right in the Village. Close to hiking and great restaurants. Pool was nice (heated) and the fitness room was nice though small. Staff was very friendly and accomodating. We will definitely be back!

Five Star Resort!

We went up to Vail to relax and enjoy the fall colors. We slept, read, watched TV, took walks, used the gym, ate great food. It was amazing! The staff were all more than helpful. We just got home and are refreshed and happy. The was in the very, very, top of any place we have ever stayed. We will go back!
