“Fantastic Weekend with Friends and Kiddos!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Amazing location and super stylish decor! Our room was very luxurious and the view was breathtaking. The staff can't be beat---everyone went out of their way to make sure our stay was perfect. The spa, pool, and dining were all superb. I would highly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: The pillows and bed are fantastic-no need to bring your at-home pillow to this spot!!!

Traveling from North Carolina with my 8 year old for a get away weekend with friends and our first trip to Vail. The rooms were luxurious, spacious, clean and comfortable. The Sebastian is conveniently located within Vail Village. The staff was amazing and always very helpful and cheerful. My son enjoyed the hot tub and pool and all the amenities. He also liked the view of the village. I enjoyed a wonderful facial and massage at the spa. We will definitely come back to The Sebastian.

We had a fantastic stay at The Sebastian. As always, we found the staff super friendly and accommodating and the suite equipped with everything we could want and need! We enjoyed walks around Vail Village in the beautiful sunshine, time in the hot tubs in the evening and of course the massages and facials at The Bloom Spa. Carrie provided one of the best massages I have had in a long time! We picked up some great items on the sale rack in the spa as well, great deals on make up, lotions and apparel. Can't wait to return!

We stayed at the Sebastian for Octoberfest and had a great time. There were a few glitches with our reservation and the hotel manager was very helpful in fixing anything that went wrong. We ended up returning to the Sebastian a month later and had a fabulous experience. We were upgraded to a suite and truly enjoyed our stay. Staff was very helpful and made us feel like royalty. We are hoping to be back soon.

We booked the Sebastian because of its reputation and superb location in Vail Village. We were there for my wife's surgery at the Steadman Clinic, and the easy close access to that facility was essential to our choice. The service of the staff is tremendous as everyone is pleasant and helpful, continually asking if there is anything they might do for us. The building is impeccably maintained and our room was perfect in every detail. From the time you enter, the warm interior feels like home, with ample lounge areas that are inviting and comfortable. Breakfast at the Market, one of the dining choices in the building, was excellent, as was the service. You can stay in any number of very nice places in Vail, but the difference at the Sebastian is the staff. We will absolutely be back!

Gorgeous, just gorgeous. This was real Jackie O style glamour.

The location is excellent with everything walking distance. The farmers market was on the day I arrived. Being here in summer is, I imagine, a different experience to deep winter, but no less lovely.

The communal areas inspire exploration: the pools, library, lobby, restaurants; it's all good.

My room was down a long long corridor from the elevator. Once there is was worth the walk. I love to enter a room and hear nice music playing, it just sets the mood so well.

There's no fridge, microwave, luggage rack or iPod dock in the room. There is a Nespresso machine. Breakfast is extra.

The bed and pillows were excellent.

The shower, towels and toiletries (large bulk bottles) were fine.

Parking is valet for a daily fee.

It was a lovely two night stay and I would happily return anytime.

We absolutely loved the Sebastain. The hotel location is within walking distance to everything in Vail village and a 1/2 mile walk to Lionshead. The views from our balcony were incredible. We stayed 3 nights in a one bedroom suite which was ideal for our 13 year old son, my husband and me. The entire hotel is very stylishly decorated and feels extremely welcoming. We also really enjoyed relaxing in one of the hot tubs and sitting fire-side after a day of shopping. The staff was always very helpful and responded promptly to all of our requests. The only negative that I could really say is that the we didn't feel the restaurants offered much variety. The Marketplace (which we grabbed a to go breakfast a couple mornings) was limited in their selection and pricey for what they offered. We were really looking forward to eating at the Lenora restaurant but after looking over their limited menu we opted to dine elsewhere. Fortunately there are many other restaurants within walking distance so it wasn't a problem for us to leave the hotel for most of our meals. We also had a kitchen in our suite so it was very handy to make a meal one evening as well. Overall, our stay at the Sebastian was wonderful. We would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a top notch place to stay in Vail. We hope to go back one day soon!
