The Sebastian is truly worthy of its reputation, in a town where quality is beyond expected.
Your first impression of the hotel including Valet area and lobby is extraordinary. Very nicely decorated and truly gives that luxurious mountain lodge feel. In fact this is one of the only hotels i have ever spent time just sitting in the lobby reading, its that nice.
Check in was simple and up to the room. Getting to the room was a bit inconvenient as the rooms are not situated on a straight corridor but rather a winding circle layout. Not really a big deal however if you plan on coming and going to your room often it may take a while. The layout however does seem to make the rooms and hallway area seem more private. Our room was located on the inner side of the hallway and as a result seemed to be looking over a very tiny courtyard of some sort which really just made the view a roof/ exterior wall of the hotel.
Again not really a big deal because you are in Vail, and should be out enjoying everything. The rooms are comfortable with fridges, comfy beds, etc. The bathroom is very nice and provides very nice amenities. (The shampoo bottles are like 20$ if you want to take them, that's how nice they are)
The hotel is located at the norther part of the small village (farthest part from the slopes) but since it was Summer, this did not really make for a huge concern. The hotel is truly in the middle of this wonderful ski village. Everything in both Vail village and the adjoining lions head village is easily within walking distance. The pool looked quite nice although we did not use it. Because the hotel is so far north, it literally sits right up against the highway. We did not notice an issue, although i imagine if your room was on the northern side of the hotel it could be a problem.
In the summer parking in the Vail Village parking garage is free. Its a short walk, but you may want to drop your bags off first, if you opt for this over the valet parking.
