Having been previously in Vail before, me and my family decided to stay at a new Vail accommodation the next time-around. As always we booked our hotel with Vail Horizons as they were able to offer us a hotel & ski packages. The Sebastian is somewhat like a brother to Arrabelle and is a unique hotel as it is both...

My husband, son, and I had the pleasure of staying at the Sebastian for several nights. This hotel is so beautifully decorated, and our room (though small for 3) was extremely comfortable. From the many water bottles given by everyone you meet, to the complimentary sodas/snacks/and apples, this hotel is unpretentious, friendly, and warm..Once you find your room through the... More

We just returned from staying 3 nights at this hotel. I booked here because our first choice, the Four Seasons, was fully booked. Here's the good: The valet was friendly and enthusiastic.

Just returned from an overnight stay at The Sebastian. We had a wonderful experience from start to finish. The staff were courteous and friendly, and there were small nice touches throughout like frequently replenished bottled water, turndown service, and wonderfully soft plush robes in the room. The beds were comfortable, the room temperature was accurate and easily adjusted, the bathroom... More

We were in Vail in July and stayed at another hotel. We walked into the Sebastian and greeted warmly by the concierge- we told her we weren't staying there- just wanted to look around. She gave us bottles of cold water and asked if we would like a tour. We said we'd come back later. That evening we went to... More

The Sebastian is new, immaculate, convenient to everything- including Vail medical center and the Steadman Clinic, shopping, dining, skiing. Friendliest, most helpful staff to be found in Vail. Beautiful interior finishes, spa and wonderful room service.

We travel often for pleasure and this is our second summer vacation in Vail. Last year, we spent a week at the Four Seasons, but since they were full this year we decided to try the Sebastian.
