I had made reservations and unfortunately did not see the No Air Conditioning notice at the bottom of my reservation confirmation. Having no air would not have been a horrible problem because there are doors and windows that can be opened and Vail is not excessively hot during the summer, but the traffic noise with the windows open was terrible. When I complained at check out about the lack of air and the noise I was basically told they take care of the owners and they didn't have a problem with it and that it was on my confirmation so I should have read the entire confirmation. The property itself is beautiful. There is transportation to restaurants and shopping. The exercise room has great equipment. The rooms are spacious. Just don't expect to be treated as you would be if you were a guest of Marriott hotels. If you do stay here ask to be placed on the back side away from the traffic noise.
My daughter and I had a wedding to attend on top of Val Mountain on July 1st. Beautiful place for a wedding by the way! We stayed two weeks at Marriott Streamside. The first week was at Birch and the second at Douglas. The units were absolutely spotless and well furnished with everything we needed. The pull out couches were surprisingly comfortable and well supplied with bedding. The windows in each of the units opened to let in the clean fresh mountain air. The office staff was very helpful especially Brandon. We loved the shuttles that left on the hour to almost anywhere we wanted to go locally. There was a Safeway Food store 5 minutes away. The Streamside is very nicely situated and convenient to everything.
We spent 5 days at Marriott's Vacation Club in Vail. The location is great and the staff is helpful and courteous. The facility is showing it's age. We had a single bedroom unit on the second floor in Douglas. Our floor squeaked in many locations and we could hear every step the family upstairs took. Fortunately they went to bed about the same time we did. Two of the outdoor grills near our building were either out of order or worked poorly. The area is beautiful but the altitude is very hard to adjust to.
First of all, we loved the room. Yes, it faces the interstate but 50% or more of every hotel in Vail is close to the interstate so that's just something to expect. The fact that this is one of very few hotels in Vail that was grandfathered from the woodburning fireplace restriction is great...and they provide the firewood for free! So you can snuggle up to a fire in a well decorated and maintained room. The bed was great, the size of the deck was really nice - plenty of room to sit out there and relax. Parking could be kind of a pain, but for the time of year I was there I didn't have a problem. My biggest complaint is this - stupid me forgot my shave kit in the bathroom, I realized this when I checked in to my hotel in Denver that night and called to ask the front desk about options for getting it mailed to me. They said that nothing was found in the room. So that means that the housekeeping staff came across it while cleaning and took it for themselves (or at least they took the $70 bottle of cologne and tossed the rest). To me this is unacceptable. I know that the hotel can't completely control the honesty of their employees, but future guests should be aware of this and make certain to use the room safe for valuables and do a double sweep on check-out otherwise you'll lose whatever you left behind. I will absolutely stay here again, but I'll be more careful with my valuables next time as should you.
I liked the location just off I70 by the West Vail Exit. Good for our Vail snowmobile tour the next day. At $455 a night, it was pricey, but it was only one night. Two complaints: 1) The bed was extremely hard and uncomfortable. The smallest of movements would wake up the other person in the bed. And we both woke up with sore backs in the morning. I spend as many nights in hotels as as I do at home and I can say that any crappy Hampton Inn or Marriott Courtyard bed is far superior to the bed we slept in at the Marriott's StreamSide Douglas at Vail property. 2) There were 2 bathrooms in the "villa" (fancy name for hotel room in this case). One had a strong smell of sewer gas that didn't go away, even after I ran water in all the faucets. Can't say I've ever stayed in a hotel like that before. The "villa" did have a couple of nice amenities that we did not take advantage of: a wood-burning fireplace and DVD player with movies to rent in the office. The covered parking was nice, as it snowed that night. There was no restaurant on the property for breakfast that I was aware of either.
We just got back from a fantastic 6 night 7 day stay in the Douglas building, in a 1 Bed 2 Bath unit. We had a blast, conditions were incredible, and the Marriott Streamside and their staff definitely helped make our trip great. The only (very marginal) draw back is that the unit/building is clearly over due for modernization. The furniture in the room, kitchen appliances, and bathrooms are all in better than decent condition, but are unquestionably ready for an upgrade. If you are familiar with the Mountain Valley Lodge in Breckenridge- the Marriott Douglas in Vail is very noticeably more run down, but is otherwise functionally identical in value. The amenities are the same, the pool/hot tub set up are nearly identical and great, and the private shuttle system is INCREDIBLY efficient and valuable. The private shuttle for the Marriott leaves every 30 minutes from your front door and delivers you directly to skiing in Lionshead. We did not even realize we had this amenity when we booked, and thought we had to use the same Vail public transit that everyone else uses. NOPE. Private shuttles every 30 minutes, and they also go direct to and from Vail Village at night which is very useful. We will absolutely be back!!
We had a wonderful weekend getaway and enjoyed the villa, fireplace and pool that the property offered. We drove into town to enjoy the activities but mostly stayed on property and just relaxed and enjoyed the quiet!
Just completed an 8 night stay at the Marriott Streamside Douglas and loved it. We had a 1BR/2Bath condo that sleeps 8. The furnishings were standard Marriott quality and really liked having the second bathroom. The king bed was very comfortable. The recreation center is much better than resorts of this size and the indoor/outdoor pool was heated enough that I would use it. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Will definitely be back.
We stayed for one night in the StreamSide to go hiking in Vail, and couldn't have been happier. Our family stayed in a 2 bedroom (one loft) condo. The condos were very well equipped, and it was nice not having to sleep on a sofa bed. The pool is nice and big, and very warm. The staff had set up a smores station which was nice. Even though it was off the mountain, it was still pretty easy to get from the hotel to the gondolas, and the villiage. We had a great stay.
We were visitors here. Kind 'interesting' getting into the resort for sure with the traffic circles and small gate way. Property being in Vail is right up against the foot hills. Seems to be maintained nicely. I thought the interior was a bit drab but that was just the paint color. The interior of the suites? Very nice. Great Master BR and bath! huge as a matter of fact. Nice kitchen, dinette and living area with fireplace. View was ok as well. Not spectacular but good. Great for a family gathering, base for exploring...I kinda liked it.
