The wonderful service at the Sebastian in Vail starts right when you drive in. The valet greets you and before you know it your bags and gear is whisking it's way to your room. Check in is efficient, giving you time to marvel at the wonderful lobby, fireplaces, comfy sofas and stylish decor. Walking through the lobby space it feels... More

We recently stayed at The Sebastian and cannot say enough great things! The bellman (George) eagerly greeted us, assisting with our baggage and skis to make for an easy check-in. Our room was very warm and inviting with the comforts of a luxury mountain lodge. Dana, Rachel and Morgan helped with all our questions and needs also giving wonderful dining... More

I recently stayed at the Sebastian for the first time. When in Vail I usually try to stay at the Four Seasons (when pricing permits), but this time I tried the Sebastian as they had an excellent weekend deal. This place is amazing. I'm used to the valet taking our skis and boots for us then loading our luggage on... More

This is the first time we stayed at this beautiful property. We were warmly welcomed upon our arrival. The check in was beyond fast. We felt more as if we were staying with company, instead of "checking" into a hotel. The Sebastian has an European feel to it. The service was impeccable and the location is centrally located in Vail... More

I was so impressed by The Sebastian hotel! The hotel was beautiful and situated perfectly in Vail Village. The staff was beyond nice. They were friendly and service oriented but in a genuine way that made their every move seem like it was their pleasure and not their "job". The ski rental and valet just outside the lobby of the...

Perfectly located in the Village with simple access to all which the Vail has to offer. Steps away from free Vail bus shuttle. Rooms are very well appointed and extremely comfortable. Lodge decor provides very cozy and home like feeling. Food and staff are wonderful. You must try the Lemon Drop Martini at Frost bar in main lobby.

Few hotels make their way into that top-notch category for me. Sebastian is one of them. Rooms and service are really great. Lots of extras here. If you like to be pampered, this is a good spot. Enjoy!

It is wonderful to have the word 'pampered' used by one of our guests. This is one of our key feelings we want to evoke from our guests. Thank you and I trust we will see you here again soon. More

My wife and I stayed at the Sebastian Vail in Feb 2014 for 10 nights. This is absolutely the best hotel we have stayed in at a ski resort.

Location is great, staff is excellent, and really nice rooms. Highly recommend the wine bar/ restaurant on the second floor. Also really like that they do not tack on a million fees like the Marriott in Vail, free water, wifi, DVDs, and snacks.

Everything was very nice at the hotel. Folks were super friendly but did not deliver tons of help on beginner skiing and the food was pretty bad. We were first time skiers with a child and we received very little help in organizing and eliminating some of the hassle. They really should have someone on staff who can set out... More
