Nice ski-in/ski-out location with really close lift to Vail mountain. Will try it another time, as we are here for conference, not play. While an older place, the rooms are mostly clean and cozy with outstanding linens and bedding. The luxury robes provided along with a room humidifier are nice touches. Our bed is wonderful for a great night's sleep. There are French doors opening onto a quaint balcony with two chairs to sit upon. It being April with snow still everywhere, it's a little too cold to enjoy the outside amenities. The one nasty thing was the black mold in the shower, chips in the tub and a musty shower curtain that I had to have replaced.
The on-site restaurant is excellent but pricey. Healthy portions prepared amazingly well with enthusiasm of locally sourced foods. Highly recommend it as a nice treat.
The one thing I did not like at all was the awkward accessibility of the rooms and the spa. We were in the east wing and had to maneuver several turns in hallways and one elevator and more turns and twists until we got to our room. And the spa? It's across the street! Either access it by crossing outside sidewalks and walking up stairs and going through hallways, or go through the hotel hallways, past peoples rooms taking elevators and stairs and through doorways ad nauseum into a darkened entry that is not very refreshing nor serene. Not Feng Shui either. Oh, and the dark parking garage is crammed with very small stalls, also located across the street and not just below the hotel. Just inconvenient for this expensive place.
