We just spent 10 days at the Lodge at Vail and I can honestly say that in all the traveling we have done this is one of the best places we have ever stayed! The staff there goes above and beyond to make sure that guests are happy and you are always greeted with a smile. The valet staff (...

The property is beautiful, and the staff is superb. We couldn't have asked for anything more for our Fall getaway. Our suite was more than we hoped for, and the restaurant staff was gracious, attentive, and provided world class service.

I stayed at this hotel while skiing in Vail a few months ago. My room looked out to the pool and hot tub, which was a nice view. It was pretty expensive to stay here and the expectation I had was pretty high. For the money, I didn't think it was luxurious enough. There wasn't anything about it that really...

Yes, it was off-season. Yes, there were renovations going on. Yes, we booked with Priceline. HOWEVER, this was one of the most luxurious experiences I have ever had and I have stayed at hundreds of hotels. Why? The staff was so welcoming, accommodating and helpful. They seemed genuinely pleased that we were there. What made this more incredible was that...

The Lodge was wonderful and just what we needed. After traveling cross country and staying at hamptons and holidays, we then went to Eagle and stayed at the hawthorn there for one night.

The gondola may not leave straight from the Lodge anymore, but Vail’s first hotel is still just as connected to the mountain. Just walking around the property you begin to get a sense of Vail’s history and evolution. Pictures of the mountain’s early days—when just the Lodge and a few other buildings made up the Vail skyline—line the historic hallways...
