We stayed for 5days and 4nights a planned birthday trip for 2 friends. How would we know that we would have front row tickets the the Burton Ski and Snowboarding US Open!!! Did I mention it was free because Burton supplied monitors all throug Vail village. Way to go Burton!! They also sponsored other free and interactive activies. What a plus for 2 first timers!! Now the hotel, it was absolutely gorgeous. Our room (residence 223B) had a perfect view of the slopes and the competition with a view of the heated outdoor pool and jacuzzis below. The public areas where beautiful in addition to the lobby with the continous burning fire place, the spa, the restaurant, the bar and the library. It was a great find!!!
