I loved all of the amenities in the room: snacks, etc! The hot tub was gorgeous! Loved the frost bar too. Nice staff. I would only suggest free or smaller rate overnight parking for value-add to the Vail experience!

The Sebastian Vail is a great hotel. My wife and I stayed for 4 days the week before the hills opened for the season. The hotel is clean, the staff are friendly and accomodating, and the location is perfect. We would definitely stay at the Sebastian again.

Even though the rooms have nothing fancy, they have a pretty good size and are really clean. The bathroom is also really good. The decoration of the lobby and the community areas is great.
We had a room giving on the road but we've never been bothered by the noise.
The service is clearly what made our experience so enjoyable. We've never seen the cleaning crew and the room was always clean. We did stay a lot of time in the room though. The staff is really friendly and they offered us water bottles and cookies every evening.
There is an outdoor pool with hot water and 4 hot tub which are really fun, and really helped relaxed after ski.

My daughter Jordan and I were in Colorado for her campus visit at CU Boulder. I tacked on a Vail trip because I really wanted to share the Vail experience with her, having visited once before myself 2 years ago with a friend. From the moment we checked in, we felt like family and were treated well, especially when I checked in with my military ID - thanks Eric :-) From managers to front desk staff to in-room service staff to base camp staff, everyone was just fantastic - Eric, Jeroen (dank u wel!), Heidi & Kirk & all the base camp staff, Doug (in-room service), the ladies behind the bar at Frost (Saturday night), GM Lance - I'm forgetting names but everyone was just great. The property is beautiful and the location is fantastic - in the Village and uber-close walkable to Vista Bahn lift. Breakfast at Market became a habit with the huge portions and scrumptions pancakes. Being able to leave skis/boots/poles/board at base camp - priceless! Relaxing in a hot tub after icy opening season conditions on the slopes - awesome :-) Liquor store directly out back door - convenient. Our Colorado trip had gotten off to a stressful start so to come to a beautiful oasis like The Sebastian and meet such friendly people in the staff was a godsend. I got an excellent deal on Hotwire but the property is definitely worth the hotel's web site rates. The only minus is that the room was really dark; more lighting would be a huge plus. That's a very small issue though. I can't wait to go back; if my daughter picks CU, The Sebastian may very well become a home away from home and would make sending my only kid off to college more sweet than bitter :-) I've already started pricing an MLK or Presidents' Weekend stay - thanks again guys for helping us create great mom & daughter memories!

Stayed with my husband and two teenage children in the week prior to July 4, 2011. This understated property is actually very elegant and tasteful. The staff is wonderful and friendly and the service is excellent. Highly recommend it.

My husband and I came up here for an off-season package, and were surprised by how wonderful staff was, how beautiful the facility was, and how many amenities were offered. I travel constantly for work and can say that this is, by far, the best resort I've ever visited. From the late night popcorn craving that a nice restaurant staff member obliged to the complimentary steam and sauna rooms, we were in heaven.

Room Tip: Look for Travel Zoo or other online offers in the fall off-season for half-off rates

Stayed with wife and 2 kids ages 10 and 11 the weekend before ski season. Best way to describe this hotel is a smaller version of a ritz or four seasons. The lobby is fantastic with comfortable sofas/chairs and a warm fire place. Check in was quick and easy.
We had a basic 2 queen room which was on par with ritz/four seasons. The bathroom is smaller with only 1 sink but still nice. The pool area is fantastic and consists of a pool with waterfall and 4 hot tubs. The locker rooms and fitness area are also fantastic as they have steam and sauna with showers. Did not visit the spa.
Breakfast at Market was very good...some of the best we have had. Location is great as you walk to everything. Service was excellent. We would definitely go back.

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope you will come and stay with us during the ski season.

It sounds like your kids enjoyed the pool which is wonderful. The pool area is wonderfully family friendly. Next time you are here please visit Bloom Spa, you will find it wildly relaxing and fun!

Thank you again for you kind words and thank you for choosing The Sebastian - Vail.
