Arrabelle at Vail Square, A RockResort
Ranked #8 of 30 Hotels in Vail
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 March 2015

We selected theArrabelle for its location and ice skating rink. We got what we felt was a good price for a hotel room. The room was nice, the pool area was excellent and overlooked the main ski run back the resort base. The beds are extremely comfortable and the breakfasts at the tavern on the square were first rate. We have. 4 yr old so the play ground just p he stairs from the skating rink was a huge added bonus. He loved his first skating experience and didnt want to leave Colorado.

The Arrabelle is one of the premier hotels in Vail, and it has a lot going for it - very nice rooms, friendly and helpful staff, and good location near the lionshead gondola. It is not ski-in, ski-out, despite what some may say. A short walk. And unfortunately, its one drawback is a truly lousy ski valet service where the staff are busy talking to each other and fawning over Arrabelle club members (locals) while ignoring hotel guests. Very annoying experience and not recommended if you want attentive ski valet service.

Dear SkiHappy,

Thank you kindly for providing us with both a positive and constructive review. It gives me great pleasure to hear that your expectations were met in the quality of your room and that you were able to appreciate the convenience of our location being, as you mentioned, just a short walk away from the Eagle Bahn Gondola. On another note, I would like to sincerely apologize for the quality of service you received from our ski valet team. I assure you that our usual standards are significantly higher than this and that all of our guests, regardless of their affiliations, are usually provided with the utmost service and hospitality throughout their stay. We are always open to valuable feedback and methods of improvement and in turn, I will be sure to follow up with all relevant staff to rectify this. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back to The Arrabelle and create an experience which truly surpasses your expectations, across all aspects of your stay.

Kind regards,

Jonathan Brownlee

Had not been back to Vail for a few years and wanted to do it right for a family birthday. Even during a hectic month with great snow this prime facility in a prime ski location manages to get you skiing and relaxing afterwards with ease. Our suite was magnificent only outdone by the views. A most memorable family trip.

Dear Chad P,

Firstly, thank you for choosing to celebrate such a special event at our property and secondly, for providing us with a shining review. The Arrabelle certainly prides itself in catering to all members of the family and I am so pleased to hear that your standards were met across the entirety of your stay. I must agree that viewing the snow glazed mountains from the comfort of your own balcony is a luxurious experience in itself – one that should certainly be indulged in at least once! Thank you again for your kind words – we look forward to creating many more memorable experiences for you and your family in the near future.

Kind regards,

We just returned from Vail and had a fantastic stay at The Arrabelle. The best parts of our stay included ski valet, quiet room, heated bathroom floors, rooftop hot tubs, luxurious bedding, in room fireplace and the best valet and bell service we've ever had, The location in Lions Head Village is super convenient to the gondola, lifts, ski school, shopping and fun bars. Yes, it's expensive. Totally worth it if you want to feel pampered. Totally worth it if you kind of dig knowing you're staying in the nicest hotel in Vail.

I recently stayed at the Arrabelle for a ski vacation with my son. I'll start with the positives:

1. The location is great. It's adjacent to the Eagle Bahn gondola and born free lift. The ski valet next to the gondola is really convenient.

2. The service is generally very good.

3. The hotel is beautiful.

Here's the bad:

For us the noise was terrible. When we arrived, the clerk at the front desk told me I had been upgraded to an executive room, with a king bed, a pull-out sofa, a seating area, and a balcony with a mountain view. All of this was true and the room was great. After the first night, I realized that we were placed in a lock-out, adjacent to a larger suite. I'm guessing the suite next to us was occupied by an owner at the Arrabelle (the condos are for sale) as the had a dog with them. Between the dog, the kids, and the mother, the noise was non-stop. I complained twice to the folks at the desk about it, but nothing was done. There was no offer to move us to a different room (I'm guessing the hotel was full) and no follow-up call was made to ask how things were going. The noise was really unacceptably loud between 6-8 AM and after 4 PM every day.

My advice if you choose to stay at the Arrabelle: insist on staying in a room that is not a lock-out connected to a larger suite.
