“Great Escape”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

We stayed in a two bedroom condo at the mountain side. The trip was for the annual Vail festival in September. The location is fantastic and the staff was great. The rooms were spacious and very clean. I will hopefully be able to book the same room this coming fall. Well worth the trip from New Jersey!

Dear Wylee551,

Thank you for your fall review. Even though we are in the midst of a huge winter storm, it is never to soon to think of summer. The mountain is a playground year round. We hope to see you this September. When booking your reservation, we always take into account wherer you have stayed before and try to replicate that accommodation.

Happy Winter, Spring, and Summer to you,

Chris McCullough

We stayed here for a ski vacation in Jan '14. The hotel was fantastic on every count:
- located very close to the main gondola
- also just one block away from the "main street", a lovely pedestrian mall full of restaurants and shops
- friendly staff
- well-appointed rooms
- access to the spa facilities and gym next door
Plus, the skiing here is great!

we were booked in a gold three bed apartment but on arrival were told we had to upgrade to platinum (woo hoo). We had three rooms, three bathrooms overlooking the slopes. Location is fabulous with ski valet at the slope and shuttle to the ski school, grocery store or anywhere else you want. Walk to the Main Street and all restaurants, plus the lifts and the in-town bus shuttle. The rooms were thoroughly cleaned every day, the service is second to none. So friendly and accommodating. Kids loved the daily warm cookies or brownies after skiing, and we appreciated the open fires in your own lounge room. Perfect lodge in every way, well done!

Dear Griswolds11,
While not everyone is upgraded to platinum, there are times when our reservations staff make decisions to upgrade in order to insure that our guests get the best Lodge Tower experience. All of our 3 bedroom condominiums face Vail mountain , which serves as our backyard playground. We are glad the après ski cookies are well received. We hope to see you again next season.

Think you,

This hotel is tops in all categories. First of all their customer service is outstanding. Without the rigidity of the luxury hotels, all the staff, from the front desk to the concierge, is courteous and will bend over backwards to accommodate your requests. The location, which is right at the base of the mountain, beats by several blocks other luxury properties like the Four Seasons and Solaris, which are much more expensive and farther away. If you go by car, for a small fee you can self park in their covered garage and walk a few steps to the elevator. They even have a ski valet service so you don't have to lug around all your equiptment. The outdoor heated pool and jacuzzi plus the free included breakfast and after ski snacks help seal the deal. This is the place to go if you visit Vail.We had a wonderfull time.

Think you for your glowing review. Many our guests find that the early season is the best time to visit Vail. Vail becomes your own private mountain, restaurants are less crowded, and the staff is filled with excitement for the winter months. Lodge Tower is pleased that we met and perhaps exceeded your expectations in service. The season has plenty of life in it. Come back to feel the mid-season snow of Vail.

Thank you,

I just spend a night here and found the lodge is extremely cozy and very comfortable to sleep in when the weather outside is freezing. The hotel staff are very friendly and very accommodating. Within 2 min walk to Gondola 1, definitely perfect for skiers/snowboarders and light breakfast is included. Since the check out is very early 10am (most hotels in Vail too), we checkout before we went out for skiing. Regardless, they let us parked the car until end of that day, used the lounge to take breaks to drink hot chocolate, eat cookies & fruits and left some frozen food in the refrigerator until we were done for the day. The room space is quite limited, and practically just for sleep and bath, but you can get warm water/tea/coffee/fridge in the lobby. Parking is charged $20/day (no alternative), skiing storage is free. Free WiFi provided. There is a computer for guest usage but it is extreeeeemmmmly slow, that'll be my only complain.

Thank you for your review and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay. While Lodge Tower is composed of 2 and 3 bedroom condominiums, we have the flexibility to create hotel style accommodations, a Lodge Room, for those guests on a budget or just do not need a full condominium. They are approximately 350 square feet in size and feature one or two beds based on your need. Our level of service is not dictated by the same of the accommodation and all amenities are a available to all guests. We hope for your return to Lodge Tower before this snow filled season ends.

Thank you,
Chris McCullough

Stayed in one of the 2 bedroomed Condo's and it was totally awesome with a great size balcony and view over Vail village. A really great stay. Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were big, very clean, tidy and all that you need! Would definitely recommend friends and family to stay when in Vail, CO especially during the summer time as rates are cheaper! Pool and hot tubs outside were great too. We also managed to see the Moose and her 2 calfs just down the road from this hotel too. This hotel in Vail was just a pleasant summer time stay, restaurants, shops, bars and cable car are just near by too! There is nothing negative to say - just positive all the way! :)
