“Simply the best place to stay in Vail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2009

I've been coming to Vail for a long time, and have started to return with my wife and kids for the past 5 years. I have stayed in many properties around Vail, and the Lodge Tower is the place to be. The property has had a lot of renovation recently, with a great new pool and hot tubs. My wife loved the new spa and the exercise room is perfect for me. The rooms are privately owned so they do vary, but all I have stayed in are very nice. I stayed last winter in a hotel room to save on money. Their prices are really competitive, especially since it has an unbeatable location and includes breakfast. Parking was free during summer as well. They even valet your skis to the bottom of the lift for you! This June we stayed in a condo. It was spacious and really comfortable and well decorated. The fire place was great! I also liked not having surprise resort fees and other charges as well.
I think the best part, though, is the staff. There is a more friendly atmosphere at the Lodge Tower than at other properties. Since its a smaller property, you get to know the staff during your stay and they get to know you. We felt like they actually cared about us, not just becuase it is their job. Especially with younger kids this made us feel more at ease and relaxed. I find other places to be a bit stiff and frankly not very genuine. On top of that, they helped us plan our activites and reservations around town. We will be back for sure!!!

Best customer service around!!!! Everyone who worked there was more than accomodating!!! Rooms could use and upgrade (few things to be fixed). Beds are very comfy and the continental breakfast was great to get you out on the slopes.

I stayed in a 2 bedroom condo, the rooms were nicely decorated and very spacious, the kitchen had everything you could need to prepare a good meal. The staff was very helpful when needed. The location is very good, right in the center of Vail Village, a short walk from shops and restaurants. But is a approximately a 5 min walk to the lifts, therefore is not ski in/out. It's not cheap, but i would stay there again.

This is the 2nd time I have stayed at the Lodge Tower..the location is perfect. Walking distance to the Vista Bahn lift, and lots of restaurants and shopping. They offer a nice breakfast in the lobby each morning which is coffee, juice, fresh fruit, cereal, oatmeal and assorted pastries...it is a nice touch. Have no complaints except don't eat at CHAP's...terribly overated steakhouse and horrible service.
Montak in Lions Head is good as well at the Game Room at Pepi's. The cost is a bit on the high end for the Lodge Tower, but worth it!

The Lodge Tower is ideally located right in the heart of Vail village.
You really don't need a car while staying here. The village has a variety of restaurants and shops within walking distance. Also, the Vista Bahn (high speed quad chair lift) is just a short walk up a small flight of steps. The Lodge Tower are actually condos while the Lodge, located next door, are hotel rooms. The condo we stayed in was beautiflly decorated with a full kitchen; keep in mind that all the units are privately owned and are all decorated differently. I've stayed here twice and, although a little expensive, would stay here again.
