While some argue that the skiing and snowboarding at Vail is one of the best in the World, and certainly one of the largest ski resorts, there are ample accommodations available for you to stay. Our vacation "home" was at the Ritz-Carlton at Vail, which is part of the Destination Club chains, was absolutely terrific. We are a family of six and sometimes accommodations can be difficult. At times, for the price we have paid, we have been quite disappointed. So it was with some hesitation to follow up on a special offer to stay at the R-C in Vail. We were very satisfied with the ambience, detailed accents of the rooms, the furniture, the granite countertops, fine count linen sheets, the hot tubs and pool. The location is adjacent to the Marriott and a 5 minute stroll into the West Vail Village which makes it very convenient. There is a ski shuttle that will take you anytime to/from from nearby Eagle Bahn Gondola (takes 5 minutes to walk there - we kept our rented ski eqpt at the Lion Square Lodge which is on the pathway to the Gondola) or if you wish to other nearby ski resorts. Included is the outstanding service and assistance from the hotel staff ranging from the bartenders and baggage crew to the concierge and housekeeping. Always helpful, they greet you by name and always a smiling face no matter what the request. In addition to the expected hotel amenities that R-C possesses, the destination club at Vail had a "teen room" (complete with Wii, foosball, air hockey, and a few desktop terminals for PC gamers), bar/restaurant with great eats, and a cozy, well stocked library with two destop pc's.
To reinforce the expert service, I had actually lost my iPhone somewhere at the hotel and notified them. To their credit, they had already found the phone in the bathroom of our 3 bedroom condo and were waiting upon my call before they were willing to call me back at home. These "guys" do it right!
