I will say this hotel is worth every penny spent, the staff is very helpful, respectful and prompt with service and help. The rooms are imaculate, the pool is stunning and heated and is open 24 hours a day. The food and room service are also excellent, we will be back as often as possible.

Comfortable, nice decor, very attentive personnel. It is very close to good restaurant, that luckily abound in Vail, and good entertaining. Bus stop to Lions Head very close as well. Nice night atmosphere to have drinks with friends and relax after the slopes.

Luxury, luxury, luxury. We pulled into the garage of The Sebastian and right to the front door of the hotel. From that moment on we had a romantic, thought-free vacation. Our car was valet'd (complimentary) and the receptionist who greeted us knew who we were before we had the chance to tell her! Our bags were immediately taken to our... More

When skiing in Vail we have always stayed in a condo with friends or family. We opted for a hotel this time as it was just a couples trip. I had been introduced to the Sebastian a few years ago while participating in the Olympus 48 hour film contest during the film, festival and had ben really impressed with the... More

The staff was awesome, the room was impeccable! Breakfast buffet at the Leanora was a treat (buffet with take away). From the front desk to Base Camp - our ski trip was wonderful. We even got a few inches of fresh snow and a full day of sunshine to top it off.

Quality of the room is closer from a 2-3 stars than a 5. Poor bathroom. Water quality in the pool are doubtable. Good food. At the base camp, quality of the ski is for beginners or average skiers. People friendly and well organized

Dear Swiss Skiers, We are terribly sorry that you did not enjoy your stay as our other guests did this winter. Our bathrooms are not the largest in Vail and are very well appointed and incredibly functional with lots of great storage for our visitors to make themselves at home. Base Camp ski rentals run the gambit from very beginner... More

We have a ski vacation every year in the US or Canada and our stay at the Sebastian this year was one of the most memorable for all the right reasons. We stay for two weeks so it is important to us that we have the amenities we want. We booked a one bedroom residence well in advance and requested... More

Yes. This hotel is very expensive. Vail in general is expensive to begin with but this one is one of the top, I think. But I'm so glad that we stayed Sebastian for the first time. Wonderful location and unbeatable service! I just loved the place. We go to Vail every year for one week for skiing and most of... More
