Great hotel, great location, great staff. My family just returned from a one week stay at The Arrabelle in Lionshead. In our previous stays in Vail we stayed at other high end properties. This was our first stay at the Arrabelle and at the end of the vacation my wife commented to me that we will only be staying at the Arrabelle in the future. The location can't be beat. Literally steps from the gondola. The ski concierge is located right next to the gondola which makes it so easy to start and finish your day. We dropped our skis, boots, helmuts and other equipment off at the end of the day. Such a pleasure not having to drag it back to the room.
The hotel is beautiful with first class amenities and finishings. Our superior room was very well appointed. Flat screen TV in the bedroom which is now standard in all top end properties, but loved the TV in the bathroom. Very well equipped bathroom with top end toilietries. The heated floor is a very nice touch. My wife loved the deep soaking tub.
Excellent turn down service. Every night when we returned to our room from dinner, the lights were softly lit, chocolates on the pillows, a soft glowing fire in the fireplace, easy listening music playing and fluffy robes and slippers laid out on the bed.
Never got a chance to try the breakfast buffet. With the in room coffee maker and fridge, we started off our day with fresh coffee, yougurt and fruit which we picked up at the local market.
No need to have a car if you are staying at the Arrabelle, the staff will take you anywhere you want to go--Vail village, restaurants, the supermarket etc. They cannot be more accommodating.
We also had several spa treatments and took advantage of the steam and sauna almost daily. My wife said that her massage therapist, Shelly, gave her the best massage that she has ever had.
All in all this was one of the best ski vacations that our family has ever had.
The facility is wonderful but what truly made this trip was the execptional Arrabelle staff.
Extremely professional and very well trained. They really could not do enough for us.
I would highly recommend the Arrabelle as your choice for loding when visiting Vail.
