Bee to Vail many times and have stayed in both the Village and Lionshead, this was my first stay at MV and I will definitely stay here again. Location is key. The lodge is just steps from the Riva express lift that provides quick access to the summit and the backside of the mountain. Unlike the Village and Lionshead gondola's, there are no long waits here. You can hit the mountain quickly and start getting your turns in...even quicker. There isn't as much traffic coming down the mountain at the end of the day, either. Believe me, I've seen plenty of late day accidents on Vail mountain, the less traffic, the better.
I stayed in a large room with kitchen, patio w/Weber grill, fireplace, 1 king bed, a fold-out and a couch that could fold out also. The room was clean and comfortable. The property was secure and they even provide for an outdoor locker for ski's and snowboard. I had no problems with the room. They do charge a $20/day resort fee but MV provides guests with a breakfast buffet everyday. Not a continental breakfast either. They have both hot and cold foods and will even make you an omelet. I thought that this was a real bargain, esp. If there are multiple people in your group. I recall the breakfast buffet at the Marriott costing over $20/person.
I can't comment much on the MV's restaurants/lounge because I didn't eat there. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The only complaint that I would have is that they were very, very, very, slow in getting a room ready on the day of my arrival. I arrived at 11:00 AM and didn't get to my room until after 5:00 PM. I don't believe that the property was booked solid either. I think that this could be improved. Overall, that was the only problem but I enjoyed the skiing so much that I forgot about it quickly. I'd definitely stat here again and probably will!!
