Our family has stayed at the Lodge off and on over the last 20 years. Things we love about it: the breakfast buffet, fresh cookies in the afternoon, apres ski hot tubbing, the decor. So many antlers in our room :) Our family stayed in two two bedroom condos, which were lovely. The staff was very friendly, I wish the...

We stayed at the The Lodge at Vail over New Years. After staying at this caliper of hotel for the last 4 years for New Years in different ski resorts, we have gotten a bit picky because of the prices they charge for peak seasons. Let me just give a rundown of the hotel and keep in mind we were...

The manager Kate rolled out the red carpet carpet for us. We stayed in a Deluxe King suite that had two rooms. Everyone greeted us. We had wine and cheese waiting in our room upon arrival. The location is amazing!

A few days at The Lodge at Vail exceeded expectations. The end of season saw "lower" rates and this hotel was worth it. A few notes - 1. The front desk staff was great and Jeff, one of the managers went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. This is the type of treatment that build traveler loyalty for...

While I expect a bit of "rustic charm" in Vail, the lodge rooms really need an update - particularly the bathroom fixtures. But the convenience of having a room right on the pool deck is perfect for quick hot tub access! I should say that we were there for a 3-day mid-week stay when the crowds were smaller, so I'm...

We checked in for a six-night stay, not really sure what to expect as we weren't familiar with the property. As it was just my husband and I for the first two nights, the two-queen room, although on the small side, was perfectly adequate. I quickly realized however, that when our daughters arrived we would need more room. Jeff at...

Our room wasn't quite ready when we arrived early. No problem, they stored our luggage and off we went. When we arrived back at the hotel Tori had gone out of her way to have luggage already on our room. She called up to the room to make sure we were happy w our accommodations. She even went as far...

We've stayed at the Lodge at Vail for a few weeks, year after year, for about twenty years. And while there have been a number of very nice new lodges built in Vail over the last several years, The Lodge at Vail has unfortunately failed to keep up. If you choose to stay here, what you are getting is a...

Dear Mitchsolo, I am so glad to hear you all have been returning to The Lodge at Vail for so long to enjoy our wonderful location and staff! You are correct, we are the first, and most historic property in Vail, which gives us quite a bit of character as well as the occasional challenge. Nonetheless, we are always reinvesting...

We had a fantastic time at the Lodge @ Vail this week. While our original room had a few issues, the front desk and managers quickly addressed our concerns and took care of us beyond our expectations. The location could not be better and the breakfast buffet is awesome (though quite pricey at $36 pp).
