This is our only negativish review of 26 days in USA. The hotel is conveniently situated for exploring Vail. The room - small by US standards. Black Nespresso machine in a black armoire so take your torch. To operate the Aircon you need a degree. To open the windows as a non US citizen there should be an idiots guide.... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel the last couple days of our Vail vacation! Wow, way to save the best for last! The valet and front desk greeted us with such open arms, it was truly genuine! We came to the hotel a couple hours before check-in, but that was no problem, they just stored our stuff for... More

We used priceline to book the Sebastian for the 4th of July. Truly a 5 star experience all the way around. The staff, rooms, location, pool, everything.....perfect for a weekend family experience. From the moment we arrive, the staff was attentive to our every need. Multiple bars and restaurants on property means you don't have to travel far. Only opportunity... More

My family and I stayed here for two nights over the 4th of July holiday. We splurged a little and got a suite with separate living quarters. The bedroom had two beds but we had three adults and three children with us, so we requested a cot as well. Even the cot was very comfortable! The suite had a balcony,... More

My husband and I just returned from a 3 day weekend and our stay at the Sebastian surpassed any of our expectations. The staff is top-notch and the constant "special touches" made it a place we will certainly come back to. The sweet treat on your night stand each night, a stocked refrigerator with cold drinks and snacks, and wonderful... More

The staff at The Sebastian are always smiling. That's because it is clear they all very much love their jobs. From the bellmen, to the the front desk, to the maid service, the staff of the Sebastian pride themselves on creating an atmosphere that is friendly yet respectful, casual yet luxurious, homey yet sophisticated. And it wasn't just my experience... More

My wife and I have been at the Sebastian before but always stayed in one of the Resident Suites. This time we went for the GoPro Games and stayed only for the weekend in one of the Hotel rooms. The staff were friendly and helpful as usual and were willing to be helpful with any request. The small breakfast room... More

I have stayed in Vail a number of times and the Sebastian is by far the best. We stayed there there this past weekend and not only is the hotel beautiful but the staff went above and beyond in everything that we needed. Thank you for a wonderful stay and we hope to get back again very soon!!
