We just stayed at the Landmark in Vail, #501, for our Spring Break vacation. Great experience overall, but there were a few down-sides.
Beautiful property overall. Excellent location in Lionshead with an easy walk to the Gondola and shops and restaurants right downstairs. Also, it's an easy free shuttle over to Vail Village. There is a beautiful pool deck with heated pool (my kids swam while it was snowing!), three hot tubs, and a fire pit. We spent every evening after skiing in the hot tubs or by the fire pit.
The property also has daily housekeeping, which was a key consideration for choosing this property (other units we've rented in the past didn't offer housekeeping). However, while they did make the beds each day and bring fresh towels, they didn't do basic cleaning like wiping down counters or vacuuming. Also, they never re-stocked shampoo, conditioner, body wash or toilet paper. I did see the housekeeping cart in the hall one day, which had all these items, so I never understood why they didn't re-stock us - I even called.
#501 Unit Itself
Definitely positivies as well as negatives here. First the positives:
This unit has a beautiful view. Though the Arrabelle is directly in-front, since this unit is on a higher floor you can see the entire mountain. The units on floors 1-3 would just have a view of the Arrabelle. The unit has comfortable beds, a well-appointed kitchen, and a nice gas fireplace.
Unfortunately, this unit is as plain-Jane as anything I've seen. White walls, beige carpeting, low-grade tile, cheap beige furniture, and mis-matched artwork. Also, there is no TV in the master bedroom (though there is in second bedroom, which has twin beds) - this was a huge disappointment. Just simply no character one would expect from an expensive, prime-location condo in Vail. It's also surprisingly small.
I can't speak to how the other units compare as this is the only one I saw, but I would definitely recommend another unit.
Bottom line: Great location, beautiful property and some great ammenities but less-than average unit.
