Just returned from a long weekend at Vail's Mountain Haus which was highly recommended from a good friend who lived in Vail for 4 years. This was my first trip to Vail and visited with a couple buddies for a ski weekend. The rooms are excellent and we stayed in a 2 BR unit that was mountain-facing - which is really worth the extra money for the view as well as the soothing sounds from the bubbling brook just below. The hotel's location couldn't be more perfect, it's essentially "in" Vail Village, as you walk across a short, modern, covered wooden bridge - maybe 25 yards from the hotel's side entrance - and you're in the Village where all of the great apres ski restaurants, bars and shopping can be had for 3 blocks x 3 blocks wide. Another 75 yards through the Village and you're standing at the base of Vail with a hi-speed quad to take you up to the heavens.
The Haus has a small, but heated outdoor pool and an outdoor and indoor hot tub. A great spa and a very serviceable continental breakfast that's set-up in a conference room each morning.
Staff was excellent, very polite and accommodating and very low-key: there if you need 'em but not all over you, which I love. There's a restaurant and bar in the basement that we did not visit, but the menu was very nice and it was consistently busy each night.
I would highly recommend this hotel when staying in Vail. We will be back again.
