We planned this vacation with our two adult children so we booked two rooms. The location was great and once you got to the hotel you don't need a car for anything - although they did have two volvos that could be checked out and used by registered guest complimentary.
My only problem with the hotel was getting there. Since we were arriving at three different times, our trip from the vail airport to the hotel was going to cost us approximately $400 dollars without tips. We found out that there is a city bus that picks you up at the airport (right next to the Colorado Mountain Express vans) and drops you about 50 yards from the entrance to the hotel for $3.00 each way!!! That was the best deal in vail. You need to call the bus company and get their schedule. We had to wait 5 minutes for our bus to arrive but we actually left before the CME vans. I called the hotel several times and not one person mentioned the bus even after I asked if there was a more economical way to arrive.
