Anyone who remembers Vail from the days of the founders will LOVE Manor Vail. Old world, gracious, impeccable. The "studio" was larger than my entire condo in the city - even the Murphy bed was a 17" mattress with exquisite linens! Open the windows and fall asleep listening to the creek, and the wind in the Aspen trees. Easy walking distance to everything! And yes, dining is somewhat pricey, but welcome to Vail - everything is pricey. So suck it up and hit Los Amigos or Vendetta's instead of Sweet Basil or Lord Gore. Skiing introduces us to Vail...............summer is why we keep returning. And "Vailmanortraveler', you whiner! Where could you possibly need a shuttle to? Everything is right there! And if you treat people rudely and with disdain, what do you expect in return? We're glad you hated this place - Colorado certainly doesn't need your sort. As for the rest of you, if you're planning a trip to Vail, don't overlook this property! You won't be disappointed!
