Vail International or Vantage Point Condo for Feb. 2007?

Hi!

I am trying to decide between Vail International or Vantage Point condo for early Feb. 2007. Both condos have similarly remodeled interiors so it is down to location.

Vail International is promoted at a 4 minute walk tolofts/gondola. Vantage Point seems a bit closer. My big question is which is truly a better location? I am interested in REAL walk time to Lionshead lift, Lionshead shops/dining and Vail Village. Are these walks on side walks or will I be off-roading it? Bottomline...which would you chose?

I appreciate your help and insight!

It's Vail, there is no "off-roading".

Don't think you'd really want to walk btwn Lionshead and Vail Village, it's a decent distance apart.

Vail INTL and Vantage Point are both old buildings and the quality of the condo is really down to the owner. I've been in some condos in each that are quite nice and others that are trash. Make sure you know what you are getting. Vail intl is down a bit from the center of lionshead and is probably a 5 minute walk to the lionshead center. Vantage point is closer, 2 minutes at most down the back steps at the parking structure.

Vail Village is a 1 mile walk from lionshead, but you can take the bus.

Vantage Point is a higher rated complex with a much better location in the middle of Lionshead Village. Vail International is near the library and a bit more outdated. All things being equal Vantage Point is a better choice.

we just got back from Vail International and it was horrible. the unit we had was extremely outdated and run down. so much so that i am planning to send them a letter. The complex is a solid 5 minute walk to the lift in good weather, and other than the pool, jacuzzi and steam room they have no other services or amenities to offer. the staff was not very helpful either. I would never stay there again.
