“Vail Mountain Lodge and Spa: My newest favorite hotel in Vail Resort, Vail, Colorado”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2011

The location was perfect - it's near the main entrance - which is a plus for those who wish to drive in/out in order to get to some of the area's other attractions/mountain resorts. The valet service here was outstanding. The rooms are clean, and vary in terms of exact layout. The one room I stayed in (a 1 bedroom) had a very VERY nice bath layout and vanity, as well as a dry bar area. Refrigerators are in every room, as are fireplaces, I believe.

The bus rolls right up in front of the property and also around the corner, so it's a breeze to get to the lifts. It is also super-convenient to all that East Vail has to offer, and just a short walk or bus ride to Lionshead.

The Spa is OUTSTANDING! One of the best massages I have ever had I here here. The facilities, including the Vail Athletic Club are immaculate and WAY more than one would expect. There is even a giant rock-climbing wall! Just amazing. No pool, but plenty of indoor and outdoor jacuzzi's - and the Men's Locer Room has both a large (really large) hot whirlpool, as well as a cold splash pool as well - which, I learned, really helps cut back on post-skiing soreness.

The restaurant, Terra Bistro - well, it's outstanding. There isn't much I could possibly add here that hasn't already been covered in other reviews - but suffice to say we wanted to eat here every night! And the breakfast each morning is SUPERB!!! (and pretty healthy as well!)

The staff and management are all top-notch. Everyone is so nice, saying "Hello" when they see you - even calling us by our first names. They were across the board gracious and beyond professional.
Stay here and you won't be sorry!!!

We stayed here for six nights during our Honeymoon to the USA. What can we say.....Simply Perfect.
The hotel is located in the heart of Vail Village. It was a 3 minute walk to the covered bridge and 5 minutes to the first Chair Lift. The hotel is clean and has a very cosy and warm atmosphere. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. We were on the first floor - Room 11 and had a view of the Mountain. I loved the fact that you could open the sliding window and allow the fresh Mountain air in. The gas fireplace is a lovely touch as is the complimentary high speed internet.
Our check in/out was seemless. The staff all seemed to want to please you in a genuine and non overbearing manner. Having worked in the hospitality industry for a large portion of our lives we never really like to single people out. As with all operations everyone has a critical role to play to ensure customer satisfaction, including those staff that you never see. However we feel the need to mention Jeremy at the front desk. His knowledge and demeanour were exceptional and he made our holiday spectacular. His advice saved us lots of confusion and he seemed genuinely interested in us having a great time. Thanks so much for going the extra yard Jeremy - It was greatly appreciated.
The restaurant in the hotel is of a very high stahdard and all the food is organic. The included continental breakfast is more than enough fuel for a day on the slopes. Although I must say that we did sway from the healthy organics and I weakened to some pancakes by midway through the trip.
We had a very nice Valentine's day dinner at the restaurant and the food and wait staff were without fault. The sommelier guided me through the US wines well and our choice complimented the food very well. Whilst as Aussies we are spoilt with wine choice i always like to taste the local varietals when travelling overseas, and not knowing any styles can sometimes be a bit daunting. However his advice was spot on and it put the icing on a perfect evening.
Simply put, Vail Mountain Lodge is a beautiful hotel offering exceptional service and hospitality. I don't know if it's the best in Vail, as we have nothing to compare it to and never will as we will always stay here everytime we visit and recommend it to all our friends and family, that way we'll never be disappointed with another establishment

We truly enjoyed our vacation. They had everything we wanted and I really appreciated the organic restaurant connected to the hotel. The service was top notch and they had great advice that we were thankful to receive. An all around great property. Cudos to the entire staff. We left with great memories of our stay.

I highly recommend Vail Mtn Lodge for many reasons. My husband had surgery in Vail and the staff could not have been more helpful. We have stayed in other hotels in Vail but this is our favorite.The beds are very comfortable, there is a great breakfast and a fabulous dinner at Terra Bistro (1st Flr) best swordfish ever, make a reservation!! It is only a one minute walk to Vail Village or the town bus (free)!! Can't wait to go back in the spring with the kids. Also, the athletic club is amazing with many classes to choose from!! Note - If flying into Vail/ Eagle don't rent a car you won't need it, take a cab or shuttle.

Vail Mountain Lodge and Spa is our new favorite hotel! When first planning our wedding in Vail we wanted to have a large party. We even arranged to stay with a snooty hotel for the big ordeal, but after consideration we decided to go with a small romantic wedding. When we changed our minds on size, we also changed our minds on where we wanted to spend our time and money for our big weekend!

When looking for other hotels in Vail to hold our wedding weekend, I remembered my favorite restaurant Terra Bistro! I also remembered the amazing gym and spa at Vail Mountain Lodge and Spa. We stopped by the hotel and met Adam and Jim, the manager of rooms and Terra Bistro. They were nice to speak to regarding different options and took down our information.

I was pleasantly surprised to work with two individuals who gave me such great service and attention to detail! We started talking about room rates, dinner options, and creative ways of holding our romantic weekend.

We learned of an idea to have all of our guests stay at the hotel and hold the wedding and reception there and on a budget! We wanted to get married in the back of the hotel on Gore Creek. Luckily we had the opportunity of working with Adam and Andy of VMLS, who were amazing at helping us with all of our needs and the needs of our guests!

The service is incredible and so are the rooms! Each room has a delicious bed with a down comforter, fireplace, and an incredibly spacious bathroom! The bathroom has heated floors, shower, and an amazing bath tub! Our guests couldn’t believe how luxurious the rooms were for the rates they were spending in Vail!

The rooms and the service are top notch! We negotiated a package where our guests stayed in the hotel for a reduced rate including, a terrific complimentary breakfast, spa discounts, and delectable dinner package including renting a condo in the hotel! The staff at VMLS and Terra Bistro impressed us! Our guests couldn’t believe how creative and special our entire wedding weekend was at the hotel!

My husband and I know that we will be back for many stays for years to come and even our guests say they want to return for our anniversary! We love the Vail Mountain Lodge and Spa, their staff, and all the memories we created there!

We were in Vail in October celebrating our anniversary. What a great time of year to visit Vail. Quiet, relaxing and beautiful. Excellent service at this hotel & in Vail Village restaurants. The Vail Mtn Lodge & Spa is perfectly located, easily accessible, clean, friendly and attentive staff, always available. We parked for free (seasonally available, we know) on Monday and did not need our car again until Thursday at check out. Terra Bistro was incredible. Too many restaurants in Vail Village/Lionshead to choose from and the staff was always willing to make recommendations. We stayed in a Mountain Veiw Room. Great views of Gore Creek & the mountain. Walking around Vail Village, not all hotels would be able to offer such unobstructed views. We hope to return in the not so distant future and would stay at Vail Mtn Lodge & Spa without hesitation.

We live in Denver and escape to Vail for weekends when we can get away. We have stayed in the Vail Mountain Lodge & Spa a few times. It is absolutely fantastic! The Camp Hale Suite is a slice of heaven. We have stayed there both with our kids and just with adults and it is so perfect. The rooms are beatiful. The spa is divine and the restaurant is spectacular. We have had breakfast and dinner at Terra Bistro and both were high quality and fantastic. The spa was very professional, clean and well done. We highly reccomend it! They also have great deals during shoulder season (Spring & Fall)
