“European excellence in American venue”
Reviewed 7 December 2010

Austria Haus accommodations meet luxury European ski resort standards. I enjoyed 'formal name' recognition throughout the weekend stay. The concierge made expert recommendations for dining and entertainment. And the full breakfast menu included succulent smoked salmon!

We spent two nights at Austria Haus last week and loved everything about it. We have traveled extensively in Austria and Germany and I can tell you, this is the real thing! You will not find any place more authentic and charming. From the overall decor to the lovely silver service coffee urns to the breakfast room, library and breakfast buffet, Austria Haus has all the gracious romantic charm of a small boutique hotel or B & B in Europe. No need to fly across the Atlantic and struggle with language barriers and the falling dollar, --Austria is right here in Colorado.
We had a lovely king-bedded Lupine room with gas log fireplace. It was comfortable and relaxing (at a very good special rate at this time of year.) Bed was very comfortable and room sparkling clean. The resort fee (which is extra) covers their lovely breakfast buffet, complimentary coffee throughout the day, and several other amenities such as valet parking- which is fairly necessary since Austria Haus is in the traffic free zone. We were quite happy to be free of driving and able to stroll this beautiful town at leisure. Staff members were all incredibly friendly and helpful.
We happened to be in Vail when the aspens were close to peak and it was amazingly gorgeous, not to mention the week-end of Oktoberfest fun, as well. Vail was an unplanned stopover in our two week driving tour through Colorado and it turned out to be one of the highlights of our fantastic trip. We were lucky to land a room on relatively short notice and would have otherwise missed a gem. Thanks to everyone at Austria Haus who made our stay so pleasant!. You can't go wrong here. Its the best!

My wife and I celebrated our 25 year anniversary in Vail. We selected the Austria Haus hotel based on TA reviews. We will return because of the personable, attentive service.

The room was very comfortable and met our expectations for a top of the line hotel. The location made it easy to move around Vail Village, enjoy the restaurants and the shops. We had a car to drive to hiking trails during the day, but would not have otherwise needed one because everything is so close and the free bus system.

But, what really made our trip to Vail an experience to remember was the fine recommendations of the front desk personnel. When we asked questions about things to do and places to eat, they didn't just hand us a map or a listing of restaurants; they asked us questions to help us refine our search and then gave us recommendations based on that information. It took all the risk out of being in a new location. Their recommendations, time and again, were spot on - and consequently we had a trip we will never forget.

For me, having a great experience is finding a hotel in the right location at the right price with the right staff and the Austria Haus definitely gave us all three.

My sister-in-law and I had a wonderful stay at the Austria Haus!! The location is ideal...in the middle of the Vail Village. Everyone we encountered, front desk attendants, porters, maids, breakfast attendants were very helpful, pleasant and efficient. The room was very comfortable, clean and cozy with a fireplace and doors opening to outdoor flower boxes sending the fragrance of the flowers into the room with the breezes. The lobby and breakfast area was extremely inviting and homey. This hotel had all the ammenities including WiFi. We hope to come back next Summer with our families...can't wait!!!

We stayed for 2 nights in the middle of July and loved the place. Upon arrival to a very quaint, 4 story hotel; we noticed the air conditioning in our room was not working (and was informed that would not be working either night). My wife was not happy and I expressed our issues and the manager at the front immediately started working on the problem. They delivered 2 fans to help with the coolness, gave us a 20 % discount and upgraded our room for the next night.

The breakfast was very nice and included in the $20 resort fee, which I am not real sure why hotels have started this trend. The pool / hot tub was small, but perfect for this hotel. Great view of Vail mountain and we ended both nights by the pool with some adult beverages. The hotel is within walking distance to the gondola and numerous restaurants. We were very impressed with Vail and the Austria Haus is a perfect place to enjoy the area.
