We experienced a wonderful stay during our Thanksgiving experience. The front desk staff was so helpful and friendly it felt like being with family. They provided weather updates so we could get down the mountain in time to make our flight and even provided ice so I could nurse my swollen knee. All of this with a constant smile! The... More

The original but still one of the best in Vail. I first stayed here 15 years ago and having stayed in others in Vail this is my favourite. The rooms, are beautiful all with great views. We had an adjoining room with loads of space. Wifi is excellent. Have to mention Chris the manager who could not have done anymore... More

We had a lovely weekend in Vail at the Lodge at Vail. We were there during the low season (10/29-10/31) so it was very quiet in town and at the hotel. The front desk clerk gave us a complimentary upgrade to a suite. We had a huge living room, good size bedroom and bathroom. Plus a balcony that looked out... More

Being a Vail Valley local for 10 years, it's always nice to have a staycation in our dream destination, Vail. Having worked in the hospitality industry, we also had high expectations.

I was there for a couple of days for a retreat. I had a deluxe king room, and it was beautiful, spacious and clean. I also had a terrific view of the ski mountain.

The room itself was what they call a delux and was very nice. There were two queen beds. The bathroom was nice with a large tub, and they had a robe, slippers, a scale, a safe, toiletries, and items to make the stay nice. Windows open in the room so you get a nice mountain breeze.

We love Vail, and in the summertime the location of this hotel and the pool are both awesome. However, to the room was VERY small and such a disappointment. Especially because we paid $350/night.

Everything about the Lodge at Vail is fantastic, just meters from the ski lift with old world charm. Loved the complementary afternoon cookies and hot chocolate. For me that doesn't ski or board loved walking the beautiful village and could still be in the heart of the action. The room was large and comfortable.
