My first time in Vail and decided against taking my friends' advice to stay at the Arrabelle or Four Seasons. I can't anything particularly horrible about the Sebastien but I can't say that I would stay there again either. On the positive side -- the concierge service was quite responsive and professional before our arrival for our week-long stay. They... More

The hotel is so charming and in a fantastic location. Front desk and Housekeeping service are average to poor.

We have just returned from a near two weeks stay the Sebastian Vail. All the staff and management we met were very welcoming, warm and responsive to requests. We found it a very friendly, luxury hotel, with an outstanding concierge service. The virtually slope side ski valet service is probably the best we have experienced. Your skis are stored overnight... More

First timers to Vail and have to say it was a lot of fun. The Sebastian hotel has customer service on another level. From the reservations desk to the valet guys and then the front desk and concierge service all do an excellent job at making your stay a great one. The hotel is beautiful and has everything you need... More

I was greeted by the Car Valet's and the front desk with very warm and pleasant greetings. I was about 1.5 hours before check-in... More

This property is nice. It is not an enormous property but large enough to have all of the amenities you would find in a luxury property. The location is about a 5 minute walk to the base camp at Vail Skii resort. I liked the ski rental shop at the hotel ...it offers you the benefit of taking care of... More
