The Christiania truly feels like a home away from home. I have been to this hotel every year for at least the past 10 years, and every time we leave I can't wait to return. I love the charming, homey, unpretentious feel of this place. The rooms and condos feel like you are a guest at a European inn, and... More

Stayed here because of Trip Advisor feedback. Most were right on. Very nice desk staff and helpful. Rooms have no air conditioning, just a box fan. Other appointments gave you the feel of the ski lodge in season and that is pretty cool. Breakfast is not served until 7:30 and offers no in room coffee for before. Nice deck off... More

If you are looking for that authentic Vail experience, look no further. Christiania is the real deal. The location is perfect; just steps away from all the shops and restaurants in the Village and you can literally ski in/out the back door. Half of the building is guest rooms that are well-appointed and charming. The other half is privately-owned condos... More

We really enjoyed staying at the Christiania. The front desk (Adrian) was very informative and gave us the particular information we would need (i.e. where to park if the lot was full, and that the side door is open late at night, etc.) The place is quirky in a charming way ('be sure to pull the door towards you before...

The most welcoming hotel I've stayed in. The rooms and aesthetic feel like a mountain home more than a hotel. The location is right next to the main strip in Vail and right next to the slopes. Has a beautiful "back yard" and great lounge/dining area. You feel like you're at a relatives house with such a friendly and accommodating... More

I've been to Vail many times over the past 15 years and stayed in a pretty wide range of places. This was my first time staying at the Christiana, and it was by far the best experience ever! The lodge itself is beautiful and historic with immaculate rooms, a staff that treats you like family, and a stone's throw to... More

We booked into the Christiania to escape a very bad AirBNB experience and were so thankful we did!! The staff were so sympathetic and helpful, put us into a beautiful suite at a great rate. The location can't be beat - in Vail Village (walkable to everything), and the free breakfast and parking are great perks. Rustic charming old-fashioned decor... More

Christiana is an absolutely beautiful rustic hotel in the heart of vail. As far as location goes, you absolutely cannot beat the slopes and bars just outside the Christiana's front doors. Each room appears to be unique, and the outdoor spaces allotted are fantastic. Be sure to check out the bar/living area. Great place to unwind after a day on... More

My trip to the Christiania was so pleasant! From the moment I arrived, I felt welcome in the beautiful and historic lodge. The lodge is nestled right up against the mountain and close to trails, great food, and lots of places to just explore this mountain town. The staff were some of the kindest and most accommodating I've ever met.... More

Coming to the family-owned and operated Christiania feels like coming home. The staff are so welcoming and friendly, and as the Christiania is a long-standing Vail institution, ask Sally to tell you all about the history and growth of the town. The decor is cozy; hanging out in Sarah's Lounge is like having your own living room in Vail. Many... More
