I'm a Marriott gold member, and assumed that because of location and being Marriott vacation club this place would be nice. It smelled bad, outdated furniture and bathroom,tub shower has no water pressure, tank lever wasn't working and there's no customer experience, no thank you:
We just returned from an awesome family vacation in and around Wyoming, Utah and Colorado. In Vail, CO, family friends met up with us, and we had a great time together over several days. StreamSide Summary: - much fun in the pool - waffle breakfast in the Activity Center! * - ice cream shakes in the Activity Center! * - paranoid bracelets and chains * - making sugar scrubs in the Activity Center* - great view of the mountain… our building was built such that the patio let you touch the grass as the mountain rose steeply behind the building… and an elk walked right up and looked into our room! awesome! - hikes through the Activity Center - DVD - we watched MacGyver! - BBQ right next to Gore Creek… quite the awesome dinner location... picnic tables next to grill... grass leading to the creek * most things in the Activity Center have a small fee Longer Description This property is definitely older. We own with MVCI… if you told us that the room doesn’t have washer and dryer - just walk down the hall for multiple of each in the laundry room, or that the decor’s a bit dated, we may have looked elsewhere. While the first impression was “ok, this is just a little bit older than we’re used to,” and it is, the location and fun at the property quickly overcame that. This is a very nice property… great staff, fun activities, etc. We had lunch and then went on the Trapper's Run hike, with the lady from the Marriott as our guide - 3 miles total, a half to and from the hotel and one mile up and one mile down the hillside. Being at 8,000 feet altitude in Vail, and with the hike up another few hundred feet, it was good exercise, but we were ok, as it was a relaxed pace. The guide fans friendly and helpful - she pointed out the Columbine, the State Flower of Colorado... they are beautiful. We saw lots of awesome flowers and tall trees, and some neat homes along the hike. We also had much fun at the pool, which is indoors and outdoors; there is a hot tub. We recommend Marriott’s StreamSide at Vail, and do look forward to staying here the next time we’re in town. Thank you, StreamSide staff!
This property has three different buildings with a joint clubhouse. They have daily activities like every other Marriott Vacation Club. The pool area is outdated but clean. The Birch building sits right off the freeway, which makes it a bit loud, but it is heavily wooded and the adjacent stream is really beautiful. Sadly, the Birch rooms are really dated and worn out. The sofa sleeper was pretty old, as was the carpet. The granite countertop in the tiny bathroom was cracked across the front and poorly repaired. Overall, it is a very lovely location in dire need of a facelift. I'd return only once the rooms are fully renovated.
We stayed at the Marriott Streamside with friends for 6 nights for skiing at Vail. Excellent 2 bed / 2 bathroom apartment with all mod cons inc a fully kitted kitchen. Very comfortable bedrooms & plenty of space. Good service from all the team. Other facilities such as ski hire centre & swimming pool / hot tub were very welcome after a day on the slopes. Great location & easy walking distance to a supermarket, restaurants. Am excellent, frequent bus service takes you to & from the ski centre. Overall, highly recommended & will return!
We used to be Marriott timeshare owners and now I see why we no longer are Used to be they would renovate units every 5 years but this one hasn't seen any love in 20 years Units are very small, kitchen on a boat is bigger...small outdated bathroom. I wish we hadn't booked in here for a week I asked about covered parking and the front desk didn't even bother to tell me you have to reserve a garage. Only way I found out .... another guest told me to ask for one🙄
We came up here the first week of October and the weather was perfect! I'm glad it wasn't snowy because this place has a lot of outdoor stairs that you must use to get to the units. Our unit was super cute! The decor was modern. We had a 1 bedroom which had a very nice newer sleeper sofa in the living room as well as a second sleeper sofa in the bedroom. There were two bathrooms each with a shower. The kitchen was fully equipped with a full size refrigerator, oven/stove, dishwasher, and microwave. The unit also had a dining area, fireplace (wood supplied by the resort) a huge flat screen tv and another smaller flat screen in the bedroom room. The heat in the bedroom wasn't working at first so maintenance brought us a space heater and fixed it the following day. The resort also had several outdoor hot tubs, an indoor/outdoor pool, a sauna, a steamroom, craft activities, and much more! We had a great time! I wouldn't go when it's snowy due to the stairs situation.
We had a two-bedroom, two-bath suite at Marriott's StreamSide Birch at Vail location. The suite was excellent - quite clean and well-maintained, with fireplace and balcony. The kitchen was fully stocked - we had breakfast and evening snacks & drinks in the suite. The staff was quite helpful and knowledgeable. We stayed several nights and did different scenic day trips each day.
A very nice spot in Vail, shuttle very handy and staff super nice. Friendly, helpful. Rooms are not large, but fine. Very comfortable beds, loved sleeping listening to the creek noises. I-70 runs through the Vail Valley, so just expect some road noise but it's fine. No Resturant on site, but grocery store close across the road and easily accessible. Nice fitness center, pool and spa. Plus the ability to grill out. Very pleasant/functional kitchens. Just don't expect a new, all wow resort, expect an nice but smaller, older property. Marriott keeps the place up nicely.
Streamside is on the western side of Vail, perhaps 6 miles from Vail Center and 3 miles from Lion's head, the site of the other Marriott property in Vail. We were in a small one bedroom suite, smaller than other Marriotts, but neat and efficient. We were there in the fall when the temperatures during the day were in the low 80's and nighttime reached the low 40's. Nevertheless, the room stayed incredibly hot during the nighttime. There is no AC so I don't know how it would be tolerable in the height of summer. We had all the windows open but could not reduce the temperature below 75. Bus service is incredible. there is regular transportation by the hotel and public transportation even more often. There are few restaurants in the area, but many of course in more central Vail. A grocery store is walkable. Other vacation amenities were plentiful, including an indoor outdoor pools, hikes, other activities.
Stayed here for a night before a friends wedding in Vail. The place is very outdated and in need of renovation. It's the first place I ever stayed where I pulled the bed out of the wall. The reason it is 3 stars is the driver of the shuttle who dropped us into Vail and collected us later that night. You are a credit to the property and raised this to a 3 star rating.
