The lodge is right in the heart of Vail Village and has both Cucina and Elway's restaurants right below. Also has at least three exits which makes the location the BEST. Easy to get to the gondola to ski, to the village or to the main street. We had two 2-bedroom lofts that were

This is a great location, as the back door of the hotel opens up onto the main street of the Vail village, with restaurants and shops. I was there in mid-January, and everything in the village was still decorated for Christmas. There were Trees, lights, an ice sculpture, and

A great location nearby Gondola One, and nestled among restaurants. Access to the slopes is out the back door (near Elway's), and short walk to pick up your gear from the valet. On the way back in the afternoon, stop off at the firepit for a toasted marshmellow and smores.

I chose the Lodge at Vail because of it's location and convenience for skiing. It was, in fact, very convenient for skiing. All skiers in my group were adults so getting our skis over to the storage tent at the gondola was no problem. This is not a luxury hotel, but it is

Snow this time of year is a high possibility. I️ just checked out the weather report for next week and it looks like snow on Friday. The lodge is right at the bottom of the ski lifts so great if you like skiing. Also shopping nearby. Others may be able to direct you to a local calendar of events for Christmas offerings.

Ask for a Platinum room. The LQA (Lodging Quality Assurance) program rates all the units. Platinum is the highest and most updated/remodeled. Call the front desk now and ask for a platinum rated unit. I am not sure if they charge additional. Gold is the next lower level and is very nice as well. Silver & Bronze are the most outdated in the rental program. They shouldn't be charging more for the LQA rate. Hope this helps. The LQA is run through the local chamber, VVP. Cheers & enjoy!

I'm not familiar with the Four Seasons, I can only tell you that you walk out the door of the Lodge and you are on the main shopping mall. It's very conveniently located and the staff was very good to us. The room was nicely appointed too, with a beautiful bathroom.

Happy to help. I would need to understand what type of unit you are looking at. We have 1-5 bedroom residences. The majority of our units are in the main building but we do have several that are adjacent to the property. All units are privately owned so each is unique. I can also be reached directly at 970-754-7810. Ben Tutt General Manager.

"Only book one of the renovated premium lodge rooms."
"If you have a large group this is the place for you!"
"If you book directly with the Lodge they can offer, Mountain view, Pool View or lovely town view rooms."
"I would recommend the one we had, room with a balcony overlooking the pool! Very Nice!"
"Request one overlooking the main plaza. Fun to people watch. Ask if there is AC!"
