I've stayed at this hotel several times, and I would stay here again in the future. For the most part it is a very good hotel. The staff is pleasant and helpful. The resort is big, so it can take awhile to get to your room from the lobby. The complimentary wi-fi is a huge plus.
Charter Sports is located on site and rents ski and snowboard gear. You can buy your lift ticket right outside the lift that is also located just outside Charter Sports. It is very convenient.
The business center is a huge rip off. I hope you don't need to use the computers or print anything (printing is super expensive). It is located next to an office where a hotel employee was yelling and grunting. Very strange. Also, don't have a fax sent to you at the hotel. It goes into a black hole.
The rooms overall are kept up very well. They are clean and comfortable and you can find a humidifier in the closet. The rooms that overlook the Vail bus stop and the lift are a tad loud. Constant shoveling and beeping coming from buses or other equipment.
Atwater restaurant is very good. The quality of food and service is great. The only weird thing was that they expect you to re-use the same knife for appetizer/salad and entree. I had the warm spinach salad with poached egg, so there was egg reside on my knife. Usually nicer restaurants give you clean utensils between courses.
Overall it was a pleasant stay, and I would stay here again in the future.
