“Shame about the construction, but nice place”
Reviewed 6 August 2006

Stayed here for 3 nights in late July. It was hard to find as the Lionhead village is undergoing major construction projects. However, eventually found our way to the Lodge and were checked in by very helpful and friendly staff.

Room was in the South Building which is the one nearest the pool. Decent sized room, comfy beds and clean. Nice bathroom amenities (Aveda), and room had fridge and coffee maker. The noise from the construction was slightly irritating - especially when they started crashing around at 6.30am... Still, we'd got a good price for the room...We had a Lodge room, but they also rent out apartments which would be handy for a longer stay and great in the winter.

The pool area is lovely and they provide changing rooms and towels. The hotel also offers free computer/internet access which was great.

If you get the chance, go up the gondola at night and dine at Game Creek Lodge - reservations essential. We had the most fabulous meal for a reasonable price.

We stayed here in January and loved it. This has got to be one of the best locations available anywhere in Vail. It is literally steps from the gondola. And, you can't be the ski valet. You can ski right to the sidewalk of the Lodge and then walk about 50 feet to the ski valet and then on to your room for a quick nap! Then back for more runs! After a good day of skiing, enjoy one of the two outdoor hot tubs while the snow comes down on your face. This is living! I will stay here every time I come to Vail from now on. You definitely want to ask for a mountain-view or streamside room. Yes, the rooms and decor are a little dated, but I'm sure it depends on the owner of your unit. The conceirge is just average though. Not much personality. Front desk staff was friendly. There is a van that goes to the grocery store every night, which is very handy. Bell staff was great too. Overall, great memories here.

Unlike most of the properties in Lionshead, this one has a 24 hour front desk and a really really nice pool. It also has a great location right next to the gondola. This is a nice improvement over the low service condos that surround the area. They even offer a ski vallet.

My only complaint is the Mezzaluna Restaurant is rather pricey.
