I really enjoyed this hotel, it's a huge resort that was fancier than I expected. I booked it for around $100 on Hotwire. The room we had was nice, but the view was of the parking lot, I doubt the hook up us cheap folk with good views very often. The room was a basic hotel room, nothing too big, two beds and a small table. It did have a fridge which was nice, but no microwave. The staff was great, very friendly and polite. They had some cool extras like free snowcones one day for the kids and a free outdoor movie on a giant inflatable screen by the pool. Kids loved it. They offer a shuttle that goes into town every fifteen minutes that was nice. Vail has some great parks for the kids, btw.

My only gripe was the $18 a day to park. What a ripoff! If you stay there, I'd unload the car, park in the parking lot in town and take the shuttle back to the hotel.

The hotel has two pools which have toys for the kids, and the workout facilities are awesome! Tons of free weights, and machines, the locker room has a steam room and a hot tub.

I read that they charge $25 a day for resort fees but on checkout I was charged $5 a day which isn't bad at all. If you had to pay $18 to park and $25 resort fee that really starts to add up. It's amazing how cheaper hotels don't tack on fees, but fancy ones do. Weird.

The hotel was very nice and the property was terrific. Be sure to visit the indoor basketball court in the spa area (it is a secret,not to be missed). The food was very good in all of the restaurants and the staff was very attentive and helpful. If going during ski season, do not enroll your children in the ski school at Lionshead, it is not a good experience for the little ones. There are many activities on property for the kids, you need to seek them out as they are in the spa area, not where you can see them. The shuttle into Lionshead and Vail Village is great.

We booked the hotel through American Ski Classics (would reccomend as was massively cheaper than any other web site we found). Please read the positive reviews on this and ignore the negatives - its a really big hotel but the staff are really sincerely friendly, the setting is good right on the creek, so very pretty and has the cascade chair lift right outside the boot room. which means you are up and away really quickly with o messing around. Word of advise for guests here, read up on the facilities and see what you would like to do in the aria spa area as we didn't bring nearly enough other sports stuff!

We stayed here for four nights during spring break and can't wait to go back. Our room was in the main building next to the chair lift so it was an easy 5 minutes to get your skies from the ski concerge and onto the lift every morning. You can either ski down to the hotel or take the chair lift down at the end of the day. I did both but found the chair lift ride down a little scary. The hot tub and pool were great after a day of skiing and to make it even better a nice cold beer can be ordered to the tub. We had room service one night and it was very reasonable and good. One night we had dinner in the Hotel restaurant it was good but very pricey. The other two nights we took the shuttle into Lions Head and Vail Village for dinner.
Check out is 12:00 so you can either pack up early and get a full day of skiing in or have a relaxing morning before leaving. You can leave your car in the hotel parking until 4:00 the day you leave. We did not take advantage of the spa and recreation centre but it did look amazing.

Place is gorgeous. Rooms are clean and well appointed. Internet is free but slow. Ski in and ski out is possible, but the ski in part requires poling. My children took ski school at Lionshead which is about 1 mile away. Shuttles are quick and easy. Never waited more than 5 minutes for one. The bed was quite comfortable. Really no complaints with the hotel itself.

The Vail Cascade is located in a great location, the staff was friendly and I really liked the place. Now on to the the not so good. My wife and I ended up on the 4th floor in the main building with the elevators just outside our door. Needless to say this room should not be rented to anyone wanting to enjoy the resort. If it wasn't the people yelling and carring on till 2:00 AM it was the ice maker right next to the room. Sleep is not an option in room 427. Be adivsed if you're giving this room move and move quickly.
