We chose Sitzmark mostly because the price was great for a last minute trip. Turns out, it was a wonderful little lodge.
The location cannot be beat- it is right in the heart of the village, you walk to everything! We have a 2.5 year old, so this was great because we were close to our room no matter where we were in Vail. The location is the best part of staying here, and worth the cost. Also, there is a free shuttle that runs every 15 mins that will take you to Lionshead.
The rooms are very nice, although starting to show a bit of age. There is more than enough room. We had a 3d floor deluxe room overlooking the creek- the views were beautiful! The balcony was a nice treat. The bathroom was big and clean, as was the whole room.
2 things about the room though- the first is that it was a little nosy late at night, with the people walking down by the creek. It would be same on the other side- the village side- and probably anywhere else you stayed in the village, just wanted to point it out. It was not enough to be bothersome or a problem.
The only problem we did have was the beds. They are all Tempur-Pedic (which I understand is supposed to be a nice perk/bonus), but quite frankly I think they are the most uncomfortable beds ever created. My husband and I both had a really hard time sleeping on them. Just be aware before you book that all the rooms have them.
The front desk and lobby are very nice. Everyone that helped us was very friendly and very knowledgeable about the are, where to eat, etc. The breakfast is beyond basic- coffee, cereal and bagels, and that's it. Go to the Little Diner for the best breakfast, but get there early!
Overall, a really nice place if you don't mind the beds!
