The Ritz Residences
Ranked #12 of 30 Hotels in Vail
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Last February my family and I stayed 10 days in this great hotel. We had a beautifully decorated apartment with two bedrooms and two and half bathrooms, full kitchen (perfectly stocked with anything you can need), living room, dining room, fireplace, and a spectacular view of the mountain. The service was perfect as in any other Ritz Carlton. In the same building you find the sky rentals and they have free shuttle service every 10 or 15 min that take you to the gondola in Lionshead, or to any other place in the village.
The only thing we missed was the atmosphere you usually find in mountain hotels with restaurants, fireplaces, bar and people all over the lobby. You won't find that here. The Marriot hotel is very close though, and you can have breakfast or dinner there. We are planning to go again next year. I don't think there is a better place in Vail to stay. P

Came here originally for a Lacrosse tournament for my son. From the location, service, and accommodations you can't go wrong. We had a three bedroom and had more than enough room for the six of us. I loved this place so much that I bought into the ritz carlton club!! Can't wait to go back during the ski season. If you are used to finer things and love exemplary service this is the place for you! Note: there's no real on site restaurant, but the bar does serve delicious meals during limited hours.

Spent 5 days here in May. The property is beautiful. We stayed in a two bedroom, two bath villa with a den. It was decorated perfectly for a luxury Rocky Mountain resort. The kitchen was great with high end appliances and finishes including a wine fridge. All cooking utensils, dinnerware and glasses were provided and in great condition. The beds were very comfortable. The bathroom floors were heated which is a nice touch for a mountain resort.

The staff were wonderful. We were greeted in a very friendly manner each and every time we encountered any of them. Many times they addressed us by name. They always asked if we needed anything.

The only problems we encountered were not major. The pool should be warmer and this time of year the hot tub should not be as hot. I was also very surprised that coffee was not provided in the room, even though there was a very good coffee maker. There was coffee available downstairs, but I would have preferred to enjoy my coffee on the balcony. Also you should be aware there is no restaurant available on site. They do offer private car service to all area shops and restaurants.

Overall this is a fabulous luxury resort in a great location with an outstanding staff. We will return at our first opportunity.

Thanks for making our stay enjoyable.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor with view of pool. Rooms on the other side have a good view but also face the i...

We truly enjoyed our five day stay at the Ritz Carlton Vail. The service as others have mentioned was outstanding. The two bedroom residence came with a den and 2 and 1/2 baths and had a lot of attention to detail in the quality of the building and the decor. Noise was not a factor and everything you could require was available from free bikes to a ride to the grocery store. My only quibble was the bed was not comfortable and caused some difficulty in having a good night sleep. We stayed in June so the property was not overly populated, but the season was perfect for hiking or enjoying the village.

Visited here in May of 2013 and I've never had a better hotel experience.
The rooms are as plush as I've seen, and the service was (almost) scary personal. Everyone knows your name and makes it point to do anything for you they can.
I can only imagine to ski experience at this place. Great local restaurants and just beautiful scenery round out the great experience. You could not possibly be disappointed.

Room Tip: we may have had the worst room in the place and it was awesome. You can't go wrong here

The place is OUTSTANDING. Only one tiny drawback, it is not ski-in, ski-out, so you have to take a two minute shuttle to the gondola. That shuttle runs every five minutes. And, there is not a full restaurant, but a large and gorgeous bar/lounge where they serve great appetizers (pizzas, salads, hummus, quesadillas, hot dogs, etc.) and play live music. We are happy to return again and again. Stellar service, too. Stellar! Ski valets are wonderful as well. Kids have a game room and they love the pool and jacuzzis. There is a great workout room, too, in case you need more exercise after skiing. They have suburbans that will drive you around town, but the bus stops right next door- and that will take you everywhere as well. Absolutely love it :)

Room Tip: They are all good. You might ask for one that overlooks the pool if you want to be on the mountain s...
