Luxury in the heart of Vail

Luxury is the only way to explain this hotel. The interesting part is that although it was top class, the staff was wonderful, kind and very genuine. In all my years of travel, I have stayed in all types of accommodations. Many times I have felt I was being patronized with the only reason being that a desirable tip was wanted. All the younger people were queried about why they were working there, and what their dreams were they answered with honesty. Sure, they were raising/saving money, but they all seemed to like what they were doing, and those they were working with, and for. It was a wonderful stay, and we would stay again! BTW, ask the front desk staff where they eat. Excellent to choose what the locals choose!

President's Day Weekend

The staff welcomed us with bottled water and were very kind and helpful with our questions. The hotel has a very upscale feel with very nice decor. The amenities are amazing and the hotel bar Fost has a very upscale yet hip feel. The room was very clean with a comfortable bed. The staff let us know that the snacks provided in the room were complemetary as well as the sodas and water that were stocked in the room mini-frig. Overall an excellent place to stay in the Vail Village...

Wonderful relaxing atmosphere and great service

We stayed here recently for one night on an anniversary trip and wished we could have stayed longer. The property is beautiful and the staff is beyond helpful - we truly felt warmth and nothing but welcome.

Great Couple Getaway

The hotel is beautiful, newer, cozy and well located to central Vail and area amenities. The staff was courteous and more than helpful in making recommendations. I would stay here again and again.

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.

Pampered Living

The Sebastian was an excellent hotel in the middle of Vail. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The amenities in the hotel were very nice, while the rooms were only slightly above average hotel.

Spa access is free to hotel guests. use the sauna and steam room. Save money by making coffee in your room or getting tea from the spa rather than paying out the nose at restaurants.

Fabulous summer find!

The hotel was in a perfect spot in Vail Village. The staff told us that we could park down the street for free, but only after i asked if there was an alternative to valet at $25 per night. We enjoyed our stay so much we decided to stay one more night, and the clerk, although not matching [...]'s price for the original booking, did give us a discount for the unexpected night. [...] We hiked, rode horses, rented bikes and had fabulous meals in Vail in July. We also enjoyed the pool, hottub and the fire places outside of the hotel at night. Very inviting lobby and study and "Den". Great maid service. fabulous bathrobes and recycling everywhere. Will definately go back and stay at this hotel. The shampoo, soap, lotion was exquisite, but in a pump bottle that they refilled and you were charged if you took it.

Not Great!

We live in Boulder, Co and booked our anniversary weekend at the Sebastian. I was excited to stay here after reading other reviews of how great this hotel was. Well, its not great at all. The rooms are incredibly small and very, very average. I booked [...] a deluxe room over the standard room thinking there is a substantial difference. Well,beware there is not and according to the hotel there is not even a standard room class at this hotel. Only deluxe and luxury. So I paid more for a room class that was already the standard. The front desk staff was not helpful what so ever in explaining the difference between rooms and rates. I had asked them to have the manager call us on the issue, but no call. Very disappointing!! Also, there are no views from the rooms here. The pool area is very small and only has about 15 pool chairs to accommodate their guests, it was not nearly enough for the amount of guests and their children. The lobby of this hotel is beautiful, but it is not reflexed in the rooms. The staff were polite at best, best service came from the valets. I would not stay here again. We come up to Vail very often and will continue to stay at our old stand by the Sonnenalp.
