“A wonderful vacation at the Lodge at Vail”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

The staff are friendly, and offer assistance whenever possible. Rooms are clean, mattresses are great and location is terrific. We have stayed at the Lodge numerous times and will continue to stay at this lodge. We have tried other places in Vail, but this one is the best!

This year spring break was unforgettable. We spent it in the Lodge at Vail in 3 bedroom apt.
After a long drive we (wife and 2 kids) came to a very nice and cozy apartment. Because of the very conformable beds we slept the first night like a rock. The next night we noticed drier air (beauty of high alt) but we were able to use a humidifier in each room.
Each day skiing was amazing. No wasted time waiting for transportation between hotel and ski lift. Just a 4 minute walk!
We did use wet and dry beautiful saunas after skiing every day.
Each evening in Vail Village was very interesting (skating, shopping, food, galleries etc).
The rooms, bathrooms, kitchen and living room were extremely clean and well equipped with everything we need to have great time.
Services are very professional, helpful and very friendly.
This 5 day vacation was the best vacation we have had so far.

Thank you Lodge at Vail !

The Lodge at Vail was comfortable, accommodating and the customer service was outstanding! The rooms could used some updating which I understand is scheduled to begin in August. We are already planning our return summer trip. The Spa was amazing and very relaxing. Excellent all the way around.

Stayed over Spring Break in a 2 bed condo. Pricey but what isn't in Vail! Great location for lifts and staff were excellent all week. Common areas a little tired and they need a service elevator but our room was excellent with plenty of space. Would definitely stay there again.

The Lodge at Vail was our first and only choice- the staff is more than friendly and accommodating, the pet amenities far exceeded our expectations, the bath products were very high end, even the chocolates for the turn down service were amazing! From the cleanliness of the room and facilities, down to the little details like the real orchid plant in our room and the doggy bag of treats awaiting our arrival, this hotel has thought of everything! In room dining was awesomely delicious and the housekeeping services were impeccably thorough and quick. Location was a huge factor a well- you are literally steps away from the mountain!! All in all, a wonderful stay and we would highly recommend The Lodge at Vail above any other hotel in Vail!

The rooms are spacious and well decorated. The service was outstanding in all departments - reception, concierge, at the spa and at the restaurants. For the ultimate ski vacation I would highly recommend this hotel. For skiers having the gondola right at the back door and the valet service that took care of the skis was outstanding. The high light was when we received a VIP invitation for first tracks skiing - what could be better.

Our family of 6 (14-45) absolutely loved our stay here! We stayed in an owners' suite (in the separate building) with 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a living room and dining room. It was beyond perfect. The decor felt very "lodgy" and the beds were comfortable. The room service was delicious and came quickly. Lena at the front desk was beyond sweet and helpful and truly went out of her way to make sure we were happy. Rosa the housekeeper was very sweet and hard-working as well. The Lodge has a ski valet that stores all your boards and skis and brings them to you when you are ready to go out. The guys that worked at the valet were so helpful and went out of their way to assist us.

While some of the rooms might be a little older and not as nice as other hotels, the location and service makes this the only place to stay in Vail, in my opinion. They also have a guitar player every afternoon outside by a fire and you can order drinks and appetizers. This was one of the highlights of our trip. I highly recommend visiting Vail in March as I can see everything being much busier and more crowded at other times. Can't wait to come back!

(Just be warned that the breakfast buffet was very pricey at $33. And it was very difficult to find any restaurant that is open for breakfast in all of Vail Village.)
