The RC Residences could not be more perfect. The accommodations are modern, tasteful, spacious and comfortable. Service is warm and friendly. The building itself is perhaps the most attractive in Lionshead, if not all of Vail. The complimentary car service around town was a great bonus. We booked through Vail Resorts and they seem to independently operate certain units within the building, so when we had housekeeping or maintenance requests we contacted them directly. None of that was an inconvenience, and their staffers were equally great, if not better than the RC staff.
We thought about staying at the Four Seasons, which has a more central location, but after wandering into the Four Seasons to have a look around we felt even better about choosing the Ritz-Carlton. The Four Seasons had zero staff members in our outside of the lobby to open their giant doors and no one greeted us while we looked around the hotel. In contrast, the Ritz's doors were open during the daytime and always staffed by friendly valets. The Four Seasons was more austere and quiet - it felt more like Tokyo than Vail, which we found to be a very welcoming and friendly town. On a side note, Vail has to be one of the most kid-friendly towns in the US. Playgrounds and open space are abundant, modern and beautiful. If we ever go back I don't think we would consider staying anyplace but the RC residences.
