Our experience at this hotel was pretty disappointing especially given what we paid for the room and the fact that the hotel touts their recent renovations. The room seemed very thrown together. There were multiple power strips just laying on the floor connecting clock radios, lamps, etc to the point that it felt unsafe. Our room was super small; there...

Hi Jenny E, Thank you for your candid review of your recent stay. I am sorry that our room product did not meet your expectations. I would be disheartened to lose your business and hope that I can convince you to give The Lodge another try. I would love to discuss your stay; please reach out to me at your...

The location is wonderful, on the edge of the most family-friendly, gorgeous, ideal, snowy ski slopes in the world. No other hotel location in Vail comes close, and in my view no other ski resort in North America is as wonderful. The staff is comprised of hard-working, charming, university students from Argentina, and Peru, and Chile, on summer break, who...

We felt compelled to write this review to provide more accurate information on the rooms in this hotel. Our family stayed in the deluxe king rooms, and the lodge king rooms. There is little difference in the quality of the rooms, and in our experience, no difference in the size. The rooms are quite small, about 200 square feet. The...

Hello, Thank you for your candid review. We value your feedback and apologize for your less than perfect experience. Certainly not the product and experience we want to deliver. The Lodge at Vail first opened 52 years ago and was the original lodging property in Vail with an unequivocal location. As you mentioned, all of our original hotel rooms received...

Wonderful experience with the staff here. The location could not be closer to the gondola. Shout out to Edgar at the front desk for being so accommodating and helping me out when my flight was cancelled. We will definitely be back!

Thank you for the positive review. I will specifically mention your compliment to Edgar. The season continues to provide with 18" of snow in the past 48 hours and nearly every skiable bit of terrain open. It was fluffy knee deep in Blue Sky today.

Even out of the snow season this hotel shines in terms of its appeal and the level of its hospitality.

Hi Theo V, That’s amazing that you were able to enjoy some powder so early in the season! We just had another big snow storm and the conditions are fabulous.

We stayed here over Thanksgiving break, and highly recommend this resort to everyone. We have never stayed at a better resort than this; even my hard-to-please teenage kids wholeheartedly agree. Beautiful rooms, outstanding staff, and great location just steps away from the village and gondola. Our first trip to Vail was a blast, and a majority of that is all...
