With so many hotels to choose from in Vail, we’re fortunate that you selected Vail Cascade as your home over the last weekend of the ski season. As hard as it was to say good bye to the ski season, Vail Cascade is welcoming summer with open arms. If you think the winter is awesome, come back and check out the summer!

We would appreciate seeing you again.

Thanks again for your review,
Brett Schoenfield

This is a fantastic, well laid out resort that has both hotel rooms and luxury condo rentals managed by and within the property. I have stayed in both. Obviously the luxury condo suites are better, stayed there in 2011 summer for a family reunion with about 17 people. Everyone loved it

The pluses:
The pool,- it overlooks the Gore Creek, has a great hot tub, and is well equipped with chairs and service people if you want a beverage or food.
The gym- you get access to the Aria, which is a comprehensive spa/gym facility. Huge, tons of equipment, classes, sauna/steam/etc. Clean, well organized. A plus
The condo- huge, well appointed, and has that Colorado feel. parking is included at the condo, and so was wifi.

there are frequent shuttles to Vail Village, the staff is very friendly and helpful and the food was great. REally, overall an A+

If you are staying in the hotel rooms, they are normal hotel rooms, nothing too fancy, but you still get access to all the amenities and at much cheaper price point.

Room Tip: If you can get a condo facing the creek, do so

This was our third visit to this hotel in three years. It is good, but we felt it was simply not as good as before. Rooms and outdoor pool area are lovely and spotlessly clean.
Staff attention to detail however was not quite so good. It had been a very poor season, snow wise, and maybe they were a bit fed up, but for customers who have an annual ski holiday, they deserved more. Some staff were great, but overall not as good as we had experienced before, it was all a bit of an effort. Would we go back a fourth time - maybe/maybe not?

Dear elmScotland,
We are disappointed to hear that your recent stay did not meet your expectations. As a loyal guest of Vail Cascade, each visit should be better than the last. I can assure you that the poor winter season is not an excusable reason for our service team to not deliver the best service. I appreciate you providing us with your feedback and I can promise you that we have addressed it with our team. Your feedback is invaluable as we strive to continuously improve our processes and service standards as a AAA Four Diamond resort in Vail. We do hope you give us another chance to earn back your loyalty and I personally invite you to call me directly if I can make your next visit more enjoyable.

Thank you,
Brett Schoenfield

This resort property was incredibly clean, postcard perfect, with a helpful staff from the moment of check-in. Gabby at the front desk was awesome. She greeted me, checked me in quickly and answered all of my questions. The room was an upgrade and I was not disappointed. Extremely clean, comfortable bed, large screen TV and a nice shower made this very memorable. The conceirge folks gave us tips on casual places to dine at Vail Village and Lions Head. They provide a quick shuttle service direct from the hotel and the conceirge knew exactly when the next shuttle would arrive for us. VERY well coordinated. Ultimately, I came for the spa and I was not disappointed. My massage therapist Dave was seriously amazing and some of the massage techniques he incorporated gave me goose pimples. Im a registered massage therapist and I left learning some new techniques that I will use in the future. The only disappointment was that I had made all of the spa arrangements prior to arrival and knew exactly what the fees were going to be. But once I went to pay it was not what I was quoted. The person I had brought with me had to hear what I paid for everything and it was inappropriate and embarassing. And later when I returned to use the spa after being out, the after hours receptionist neglected to give us keys for a locker so we had to make our way back down to her to get keys. Had it not been for this experience at the spa, this resort would have gotten an excellent rating.

Room Tip: Splurge for the upgraded room. It is well worth it and not much more expensive.

The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are nice and spacious, and the staff is fabulous and always helpful. We've stayed there twice, and would definitely stay there again. They offer a shuttle into Lionshead and Vail Village, so getting around without a car is a breeze. They even started a shuttle once a day to the local grocery store, which is awesome!
