“Great weekend stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

My Wife and I stayed at the Stizmark Lodge along with our youngest son's family last weekend. We had a wonderful time. The lodge was warm and comfortable. The location was fantastic, right in the center of Vail Village. The staff was helpful and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The room was great and the beds were awesome (temper-pedic). We loved that it was a smaller hotel that seemed to do everything better. It was located right on the Gore Creek close to great restaurants (Mountain Standard, Los Amigos, and Sweet Basil). We will definitely stay here again. Great Hotel!!!

Was on a re-positioning trip to our AZ home and my buddy, who was caravaning in another car suggested Vail and the Sitzmark. Great idea. While we enjoyed the quiet, non-seasonal, experience, this is a neat hotel/lodge, right in the center of the community. Rooms are a "cut above", and everything worked in the room. Breakfast was most adequate, unless you're bent on hot waffles or eggs. We left Vail refreshed, and pleased with our stay. I'd sure do it again.
We left into threatening weather and the staff helped with suggestions, maps, and encouragement. And their suggestions were correct!!!

We spent a week at the Sitzmark Lodge in September after our Colorado vacation plans changed due to the flooding. The room was very spacious, the bed was comfortable, and we loved having both the fireplace and the balcony overlooking the creek. The staff was very gracious and helpful to us, providing suggestions regarding activities and things to see in the area. We had not planned on being in Vail during Oktoberfest, but it was a lot of fun. Many thanks to Jennifer, Andrea, and Lynn for all your suggestions and the wonderful service provided. We look forward to staying at the Sitzmark again in the future.

We are so pleased to have had you as our guest and that we were able to assist you when your plans changed. Our staff is quite knowledgeable about the area and always excited to share what they know. It is so kind of you to take the time acknowledge our front desk staff. They certainly appreciate it when their efforts are recognized.

Everyone knows about the horrendous flooding that took place in Colorado in early to mid September of 2013 and the resulting state of emergency and request by the governor for visitors to stay away and get as many emergency crew in as possible. My wife and I were driving cross country from NJ and had planned a 2 night stay (Sept 17 to 19) at the Sitzmark Lodge. I called the Lodge on September 14th to cancel since we were told there were major flooding issues on the 3 Interstate Highways in the Denver area that we would have to navigate in order to get to Vail from Chicago. We were told by the Sitzmark that we would be refunded for 1 of the 2 nights, since we did not cancel 8 or more days in advance of our stay. This was their "policy". I can understand policies, but doesn't customer safety and extraordinary circumstances come into play?

I am so sorry to hear that you were so misinformed about the flooding in Colorado. While several communities in the Denver area were severely affected by this disaster, the mountain areas, including Vail were unaffected. Interstate highways, as you state, were not cut-off and there were no floods or damage within 150 miles of us. The media did generate a spotlight on the state of Colorado giving rise to a call for action for much needed aid to that area, unfortunately it also gave the wrong impression that the entire state was closed for business. I am surprised you did not get a better feel for the condition of our area when you called to check on your reservation.

While our cancellation policy is clearly stated at the time of reservation and in all written confirmations, we do take into consideration circumstances such as Acts of God that may affect our guests’ ability to travel and will make exceptions to that policy as such. Because we were not affected by this disaster we did not feel an exception was warranted.

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Sitzmark in July. We ended up parking our car in the structure and walking thru town to find it since Vail is mostly pedestrian. The desk clerk gave us directions how to get our car to the hotel and the parking garage is beneath. The location is in the center of town and we had so many restaurants and shops to choose from within a 5 minute walk. When we checked in we had a street view room and asked if there were any Gore Creek view rooms available and sadly, there were none. But, they did offer us the Bridal suite as an upgrade option that we quickly took. Room was at the end of the building with a large balcony that overlooked the side street with the bridge and creek. Nice King size bed and a sitting area with a fireplace. There was a small refrigerator with a coffee maker in a nook next to the bathroom. bathroom was large and spacious. More than enough closet space and a large dresser. They offer a continental breakfast in the mornings off the lobby that was just fine for our needs. Cereal, bagels, hard boiled eggs,fruit, oatmeal and juices, coffee and espresso. On the second floor at the other end of the hotel is their pool deck. It was very nice and relaxing to sun on the deck there. There are Condos right across the street from it so their view is of the Sitzmark pool.
We explored Vail on foot and enjoyed our stay there very much. There are free buses that run through Vail and Lionshead if you wish to check out the area. Lots of restaurants and bars close to the hotel. We didn't move our car once while we were there. We would definitely stay at the Sitzmark again. We didn't have a lot of contact with the staff, but the ones we did talk to were extremely accommodating and friendly!

Room Tip: Request a room overlooking Gore Creek. You can hear the water from your room.

The Sitzmark is a great hotel in the heart of Vail Village, nice views and convenient to everything in the village. As mentioned earlier, there are some great rooms that can be requested, and the free parking can't be beat! Lynn at the front desk was VERY friendly and suggested places to eat for dinner.

Love to visit Vail Village and this hotel is a reasonable, clean place to stay.

First time to stay at the Sitzmark Lodge and thoroughly enjoyed it. The Lodge is right in the middle of Vail Village and has free parking directly under the lodge. Easy access to restaurants and shops in the village. Very friendly staff.

Room Tip: Odd numbered rooms face the village and ski slopes. Even numbered rooms face the creek.
