“Fantastic staff and fantastic location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2012

We were here for 5 days in Dec and we loved this cozy family run hotel in the centre of Vail, the location is brilliant ski in and ski out with the Vail New Gondola. All shops and pubs/ restaurants were within easy walking distance. On our arrival, we were greeted by friendy hotel staff that made every effort to make us feel welcome, Gabrielle was very accomodating, helpful and friendly she recommended great restaurants. The continental breakfast was good, we were offered freshly brewed coffee, the selection of cereals, bagels, muesli, yogurts etc was also quite adequate. The room was plesant and welcoming it had a nice balcony that featured a great view of the mountains, everything was clean and the bed was comfortable. We had a really wonderful time and we will definitley be going back.

Quiet street and quick walk to Vail village. The new One gondola is nearly right outside the back door. The rooms are clean and the service was great. The included continental breakfast is very good and helps get everyone moving. Highly recommended.

my wife and i recently stayed at the christiania lodge in vail, co and it was very impressive. the location was ideal, only about a half block from vail village which was very convenient. since it was early nov, the restaurants in the village were all offering discounts (still considered off season until late nov). we had a room on the 3rd floor with a king bed and mini fridge. the room was very cozy, not tiny. bathroom was luxurious and large with his & hers sinks. bed was comfortable (pillows were way too soft, we had to pile them in order to get any support) and they offer a free continental breakfast in their lounge each morning (only until 10 am, would have preferred it to stay open a bit later). the lounge area was very spacious and comfortable with a large fireplace. we had a deal with living social so it was about $270 including taxes for a fri and sat night stay. a great experience l and would definitely recommend!

We so enjoyed our 4 night stay at Christiania Lodge in Vail. The lodge built in the 60's is beautiful and immaculate located at the edge of the Vail Village. So convenient for strolling, shopping and dining. Close to bus transportation also. We can't say enough about the wonderful staff at the Lodge-from the housekeeping, maintenance, and especially the front desk staff. We give Nick special kudos. Don't miss out on the heated outdoor pool/sauna.

Room Tip: No air conditioning so appreciated the balcony door

We stayed in a condo managed by the Christiania - B4 at the All Seasons. What a comfortable and cozy place. Wonderful amenities, washer and dryer, beautiful dishes, and comfy beds. We were right across from the ski slope. We enjoyed our time immensely, everything is vey close. Easy walk into town, easy walk to Ford Park and the amphitheater, walk across the street and you can hike the mountain. I would love to stay here during ski season. Golden Peak is right across the street.

This was a very pleasant stay at Vail during Oktoberfest weekend. The hotel offers the quaint faux-Bavarisn charm that Vsil is famous for with good attentive service. It's close enough to walk to the village but not in the middle where it's noisy. They offered free carb-laden breakfast and parking in the off season.

Only two drawbacks. There's no daily maid service for the lodge rooms and we were never informed of this. There were also drunks staying in the room next door whose loud vulgar fighting was rather frightening and disrupted our sleep. Kind of makes me wonder the kind pf clientele this place attracts vs the typical Vail guest. But it was Oktoberfest weekend not ski season so that might explain it.

Other than that it was a pleasant stay and the heated pool is an extra added pleasure.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights during the Labor Day weekend. We had a mountain side room on the 3rd floor but couldn't see much of the mountain because of trees. It was better than being on the street side though. Our room was a nice size with a king bed. There was a sink outside the bathroom which was helpful. We really liked the location because you could walk or take the bus anywhere. The breakfast was adequate and we enjoyed the dining area. The hotel is older but well maintained. It had a European feel to it which was nice since it was different than a typical chain hotel. I left part of my phone charger in the room and did not know until the next night. When I got home, I called the hotel and they were nice enough to mail it to me. Our only complaints are that the WIFI in the room was spotty, it was noisy on Saturday night until 2 am because there is a bar close by and you sleep with the windows open, and the parking across the street can be troublesome because if you leave you have to run in and ask the desk for the sensor to get back in. There is no AC so if it was really hot during the day I wouldn't stay there as it doesn't cool down very quickly. However, during most of the year I would stay there again.

Room Tip: I would ask for a room not on the street side.
