A very nice place to stay in Vail Village, with one caveat. As other reviewers have noted, most of the rooms are older and not air conditioned.
The luxury rooms in the new International Wing, however, are wonderful. After having a look at the room we originally booked in the main part of the hotel, we immediately negotiated an upgrade with the manager.
Not only was our room air conditioned (we kept it at a chilly 65 degrees!), but the beautiful marble bath was larger than most bedrooms. The bathroom floors are heated, as is the towel rack, and the double vanities made it very comfortable. The room was tastefully decorated with new, contemporary furniture, very clean, and we had a lovely terrace overlooking the courtyard. These rooms are pricier than the rooms in the un-airconditioned section of the hotel, but well worth the extra money.
A glitch with housekeeping prevented them from providing the nightly turn-down service we requested, but the room manager was very apologetic and gave us a generous credit toward our bill. Understanding that things will not always go smoothly, we were more than satisfied with management's resolution of the issue.
There was some construction in the area, but we did not notice it from our room.
Based on some of the other reviews, we hope the construction will continue to include a renovation of the rooms in the main building. Had we been forced to remain in our original room, our experience would not likely have been as pleasant. But we highly recommend this hotel, IF you stay in the new wing.
