I read about Vail Mountain Lodge & Spa in Frommers so I was expecting great things. This is probably a wonderful place to stay during ski season but even room fans can't cool down a room without air conditioning during the summer. The mountain side rooms were booked so I opted to try for a valley side room, being told that I wouldn't see I70. Leafy trees did obscure the view of the interstate but because there is no airconditioning and the room was hot, the windows had to be left open. This meant noise from the construction vehicles coming through Vail Village and all the traffic noise from I70, especially at night. My guess is that rooms on the mountain side, right next to Gore Creek, would be quieter and would have balconies and better air circulation during the summer.
This was also one of the more expensive options that I had looked at so I was expecting a much better experience.
Breakfast was excellent but couldn't really offset the noise.
If I hadn't prepaid for the visit, I would have probably checked out early and found someplace else to stay.
