This is just shy of a perfect 5. Manor Vail is very close to the slopes. You cannot ski in or out, but it is about a 100 meter walk to-and-fro (you can see and hear the snow cats grooming at night). The service was excellent. There was a problem with our room at check-in (a miscommunication with housekeeping and front desk), and when we got there, the housekeepers were still cleaning up. We left and came back 2 hours later, and they again said it was ready, and it was not. Just really embarrassing, and made the housekeeping staff uncomfortable. Hotel comped us a round of drinks, which was great (thanks!).
Service at the bar was excellent, and the food was decent (nothing spectacular, but very good for bar food).
The rooms were cleaned everyday...no issues.
Hotel offers free breakfast during the ski season (not sure if this is during the summer times or not, best to ask) . The food was great and fresh. Cook-to-order eggs/omelets. One day they offered a breakfast burrito as a special (not a great choice for skiers), but there were plenty of other options (potatoes, pancakes, fruit, granola, oatmeal, etc).
I was not impressed with the hot tubs. They have four 6 to 8 person hot tubs. I was imagining something a bit bigger with a party-like atmosphere. Not the case.
I was also not impressed with the steam room. I thought they would have separate men and women's steam room, but it is co-ed. It also fits only about 6-8 people. I was also imagining a eucalyptus-style steam room, but it was not.
I will probably re-book for next year, but I will look around again just to make sure there is not anything better. At $800/night, you have to do comparison shopping.
