So we booked the Marriott Vail "Resort" based on the lack of availability in Vail during their season. We all booked King size bedrooms and when we arrived at 1:30pm we were told that we could only have doubles?!? The first person we spoke to said that just because you book it 2 weeks in advance doesn't mean thats what you will get? Huh! So I order a steak and get spaghetti and thats ok too? So I moved on to the manager and was told that they indeed had no king size beds but they would give me a room with a view. Lol! I got to the room and it overlooked the valet parking. guess you cant argue that indeed it was a view. Lol, again!
All in all the service at the hotel was good, but the room I was given had an adjoining door and the first morning I was awoken by knocking on the adjoining door and kids screaming at 6:45am. on a sunday morning. This went on for about 45 minutes till I finally called the front desk. About 15 minutes later I heard one of the hotel staff talking to the people in the next room and then he came to my door and let me know he had talked to them. So around 7:45 I went back to sleep until a little after when there was constant knocking on my door. So I had put the do not disturb sign on my door and thought it was the people next door until I went to the door and it was maid service asking if i wanted my room cleaned, Uh no, hence the do not disturb sign!
So I got up and went in search for breakfast. It was amazing that although the hotel had a few restaurants in it there seemed to be no one in any of them. The largest was design to look like a cafeteria, which I thought was odd since this was a resort. I decided to venture into the village for breakfast instead. The entire weekend, which was supposedly sold out, all of the restaurants except for the lobby bar seemed empty throughout the day.
The rooms are what I would classify as a 3 star hotel but the location is great and the staff for the most part were also great. There is a shuttle that takes you from the village where the marriott is to Vail village where all of the shopping and night life really is. So if you want to enjoy the nightlife you may search out a property in that village.
$400.00 + tax etc. a night is overpriced for this hotel but that seemed to be the going rate for many of the name brand hotels during our stay. I will say that part of our group stayed at the Vail Cascade and said the rooms were nicer but it was far less convenient of a location.
