My wife and I recently spent a night here in an attempt to escape the summer heat. First, Vail is a great place to visit in the summer, ad the hotel is great to explain all of the events that you can do in Vail. It is a beautiful hotel that oozes with its European heritage. This is a deceivingly large hotel, especially when you get a room that is on the other side of the hotel. The rooms are great too. Our room had a huge jacuzzi bathtub and had better than average toiletries for your convenience; trust me, you wont feel like you are staying in an average Hilton or Hyatt.
The hotel property is great too. We happen to wander down to the indoor/outdoor pool, and there was a WEDDING RECEPTION going on at the time. It didn't stop us from swimming inside (reception was outside). The breakfast we had the next morning was first class. Again, you get the sense you might be in a hotel in the German black forest when you see the food selections and are seated in a glass covered outdoor eating area.
All in all, the room might have been a little more that we wanted to pay, but the amenities and staff were first class.
