A friend I stayed here and loved it. The location was excellent, ski right over to the gondola and ski right back at the end of the day. You can't ask for a more convenient location! The place has a old time ski lodge feel to it. It has a locker room where you can keep your skis and boots... More

Christiana is a quaint hotel whose nostalgic, old-timey feel belies a resourceful and well-located institution. Not only were the rooms extremely clean and reminiscent of a authentic mountain lodge, but the amenities, including a great-sized bar and heated pool, truly lended themselves to an amazing experience. Perhaps my favorite part of Christiana is that it is located in the heart... More

August 2013: We stayed at the main property (Christiania Inn) in Vail Village. We had a beautiful suite overlooking the "babbling creek" with a spacious "wrap-around wood deck with wrought iron picnic table and chairs. The room had a spacious front room with fire place and a very large master bedroom. Located in the village was fantastic. Had short walks... More

We enjoyed our stay at Christiania Lodge in Vail. The rooms was cozy and the lodge is beautiful. We stayed during the summer and the lodge is in a perfect location to walk into Vail Village and explore the beauty all around. I only wished that there were air conditioning in the rooms, but besides it being a little on... More

Gorgeous Christiania, we came from the UK twice and now from Australia. Nothing is too much, pool uncovered any time. Excellent service, spotlessly clean. Owners and staff are the very best. We would not stay anywhere else in Vail. My husband and I, have stayed in many hotels non compare to our favourite, we will be staying in 2015. It... More

I have been going to the Vail Valley for 25 years both for business and pleasure. If I am not staying with family or friends I stay at the Christiana Lodge for the simple reason that it is the friendliest and most accommodating lodge in Vail with the very best location in both winter and summer. It has a true... More

This is a great place to stay in my opinion. Slopeside with a ski locker room from which you walk right out to Gondola One. Doesn't have the tacky ritzy feel of the newer vail properties. We've stayed there several times and have never been disappointed.

I just stayed at Christiania Lodge in Vail, CO (room 205) and was extremely happy there. I was there for a meeting, most of which was held at the Lodge itself. The owners/staff are extremely friendly and helpful. It felt like we were at someone's home instead of some impersonal hotel. Breakfast was provided in a lovely breakfast room (complete... More

I have been staying at the Christiana for many years and it never disappoints. I had not been here for several years and was so pleased that the quality of the hotel had not changed - in fact it appears as though their rooms have been redone. I booked the room on Tripadvisor and it was by far the best... More
