The community is a little dated, our unit was on the 3rd floor without an elevator and now my butt looks amazing after tackling the stairs multiple times per day LOL! Our unit had been remodeled, had an amazing heated Toto toilet, full kitchen, balcony and pull out sofa bed.
Bus access to the slopes was a short walk as was the nicely updated amenities. Trust me, after a day of skiing (or trying in my case) you'll want to use the steam room and sauna!!!!
We stopped at Costco and a grocery store in Denver, cooked most nights and saved a lot of money. If you're a smoker there is a $4 per pack tax in several counties, so stock up elsewhere or quit.
Beaver Creek is just up the road and makes for a great day trip even if just to look at the amazing architecture. On the way back to Denver airport we drove maybe 5 minutes off I-70 to see Red Rocks.
As for traffic.... OMG it was night and day vs Atlanta as far as speeders and attitude. Everyone was nice and not in a big a'hole'ish hurry like they are in ATL.
As for skiing.... if you are used to Boone, NC and haven't skied in a few years, my advice is to take a lesson the first day! Pricy but worth not being road kill on the slopes!

We spent 14 nights at the Vail Racquet Club during a Ski Vacation. Our Condo was well appointed, and close to the bus stop for the main resort which takes just 20 minutes. Yoga and Pilates, as well as hot tubs, pool and steam/sauna are available free with your stay, which is perfect to stretch out and relax those tired muscles. The on site restaurant is open Wed-Sun in the evening and serves a good standard of basic food.

This was our fourth stay here and we are already planning on returning next summer. Having a two bedroom plus a loft and a full size furnished kitchen was wonderful especially since we prefer to eat in. Be sure to book through the resorts website or you will have to pay for certain use of amenities like the pool and such.

The Vail Racquet Club could be great—it has a pool and tennis courts, but falls completely off due to the poor service and complete unawareness of hospitality by the staff. Here we go: They treat everyone who wants to use the pool as someone who is potentially sneaking in, and that was a huge issue for us. You are never greeted, just coldly asked “Room Number?” Similarly, they grill you on if any containers you are carrying have alcohol? We needed an iron in our room, and we called the front desk where we were again told very coldly, we could pay for one for a charge (an iron?!), but we’d have to get it ourselves. We also needed cribs, and we were told (coldly again) that none were provided and we needed to rent them through a third party (expensive and inconvenient). We needed to use the elevator in the hotel because we had a stroller, and again were told by the Front Desk, “not without a room number”…which obviously we had, but who talks to guest like this? They are marketed as a family-friendly hotel, but keep in mind:there are no elevators, so you have to lug strollers etc up and down each time; they provide no staff to help you get your luggage to your room; they also take no accountability for what is happening in any of the other units. Construction was happening in the unit above (we had two babies that needed naps) and we were told the unit above us was not part of their association so they wouldn’t even make the call for us to see when construction was stopping (insanely loud hammering-it’s an old building and you hear everything). I asked the front desk how to handle it on my own, and I was told, “get a white noise machine”. WOW. Do not stay here-there are much friendlier hotels in Vail that are much more family friendly. Yes, it’s affordable, but it comes with a serious cost. This was actually not one staff member, but three who talked rudely to us the whole time. If you need multiple bedrooms because of kids, go to Manor Vail Lodge. Will not be staying here again and would never recommend it to anyone.

This is NOT a well run Condo-hotel like so many are in the Vail community. I would not recommend it to anyone. It was our first time staying here after looking at some of the units for sale with our Realtor, we thought we'd like to purchase one. I'm glad we did choose to stay (3 nights) because it definitely changed our minds about buying into this community. The staff greet you just as soon as you make the corner up the flight of stairs to the front desk while you are 30 feet away. Not really sincere, more like Pavlov's dog. They don't bother much to stand or make eye contact at any point during your check-in. Prior requests are questionably noted, such as for us: an updated and end unit. We got neither, but were assigned the most worn out, tired, dirty condo I've ever spent the night in. The windows were so old (1970's) you could hear every car on I-70 all night long. The unmatched, scratched furniture was disgusting and the bathroom was filthy. Carpets were nasty. The bed spread was old and worn, pillows were disgusting and just flat worn out. Dishes and silverware were not clean. Fortunately, we had a set of clean sheets in the car that I got out to place over the ones they had, but the mattress itself was literally worn out. By the next morning, we were ready to leave the property and go home, although we had paid for 3 nights already. When I called the next morning to complain about it, they said "Oh, it's a Platinum unit!" Then they called back 30 mins. later and offered us a first floor, end & updated unit in the same bldg. no one had stayed in the night before! Just what we had originally asked for. Why do they do this? Who knows. So we packed up our things and moved to the 2nd unit. This was the time of day I had planned to swim, which now I didn't have time to do. When we checked out they offered to credit us a pittance of $100, not plus tax, but $100 total for our $1017 stay. Really pathetic, a hotel with any hospitality training would have given us one nights stay for free. It took 2 weeks to receive that credit and "feedback" to VRC was never even acknowledged. So, no, we will never stay at VRC again.

This is our 3rd time staying at Vail Racquet Club and will definitely be our last! We requested a 3 bedroom townhouse with 3 king beds as it was 3 adult couple and 2 small children. The unit they gave us had one room with twin beds a broken night stand with nail sticking out of the top and a broken door laying on the floor and no TV in that room. We asked to be moved but they said it was not possible, so we just made it work. Later that night we tried to turn on the main floor TV and it didn't work ,maintenance came and replaced with a 24" one and left the original there, never came back to replace with larger one. Some of the windows had no screens on them so couldn't open for fear the little ones would fall through. Dishwasher top rack broken so could only use bottom. Baking dish and bowl cracked all the way through so not usable. The railings at top of 3rd floor very wide, wouldn't let our 2 year old granddaughter up there for fear of falling through! When checking out I asked that someone contact me about my concerns but nothing. I emailed my concerns to them still nothing. I used to recommend Vail Racquet Club but not anymore!

I am rating the fitness club and staff.
I bought a 10 visit punch card over 1 year ago for when I am in Vail working at the hospital up here. The fitness club has not allowed me to use card even though they have opened it up to other users, due to their COVID policy. When I called to see if they would consider that I am fully vaccinated against COVID and up here to work as a healthcare provider, the woman on the phone was dismissive - "no, not at all," she stated, and then hung up on me.
From the CDC: "Risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection during public social activities such as dining indoors at a restaurant or going to the gym is lower for fully vaccinated people."
If I am not called into the hospital, I can come into the fitness center anytime of the day and would use the fitness center at low use times and wear a mask and follow all other rules, but the staff just hung up on me. I am not asking to use the locker rooms or any other part of the facility. But no. So I own this useless piece of plastic I bought for their fitness center a month prior to the beginning of the pandemic.

Made a last minute trip to Vail for New Year's Eve week. As it was peak holiday season an average hotel room starting price was $1200 per night. We were so fortunate to find the Vail Racquet Club Mountain Resort. About a 10 minute drive from Vail proper connected by shuttles running every 15 minutes, we found it to be conveniently located.

Set in a wooded area we stayed in a one-bedroom condo with kitchen, living area with fireplace and balcony with a gas grill for about $400 per night. We did not use pool/hot tub but would pass it on the way to the shuttle and the facilities looked nice. There is a restaurant/bar open in main building most nights. We parked right in front of our accommodations.

We will definitely stay here again.

We had a very horrible experience. We arrived on 7/11 after hours (8:30pm), the instructions provided for the location of our unit was incorrect as someone else was already in this unit. I Immediately called the after-hours phone number and got an answering service. It took 45 minutes to an hour to receive a callback. As we sat in the car wondering if we'd be sleeping there for the night, we ended up driving to all the other possible property buildings that we thought might have represented an error in how the room numbers or building numbers might have been written down by whoever wrote the instructions. We ended up trying our entrance code on six different room numbers to no avail and a big time "oh crap what are we going to do for the night". Finally, we received a call back informing us of the correct building where we found our room. I expressed our deep dissatisfaction and duress and requested some form of compensation and was told this would be relayed to management. Of course, they never attempted to contact us with an apology or compensation. As for the stay, it was in the mid-80's that day and the unit was sweltering hot. There is only one small window with no way of providing airflow to breeze it out. The management does not care about your experience or customer service. It's amazing that a place this huge doesn't have someone onsite 24/7.

This is a condominium style resort in East Vail. Although the buildings look old from the outside, my one bedroom apartment was fresh and modern inside, with only the bathroom being a bit dated. The shower was excellent however. The apartment was clean and very quiet, with an exceptionally well equipped kitchen and a large lounge area. It was very warm and had excellent wifi. The bed was comfortable. There was ample free uncovered parking next to the building. Despite its location, the free shuttle bus to Vail village made access to the ski slopes easy especially if you can leave your skis and boots at a rental place in the village. The only negatives were the two flights of external stairs to my second story apartment - challenging when arriving in heavy snow with all my ski gear. Also the apartment lacked laundry facilities - only shared laundry facilities available.

Hi there. No, it's used by families as well. We typically see more of the lap swimmers in the morning. We just ask that if there is a lap swimmer, that kids stay out of their swim lane.

Blu's is a good restaurant, provided that you don't get there to late and that goes for room service also. They close early. I would suggest you hit a market somewhere and stock the frig. You are out of gas food wise given the hours of food availability, unless you don't mind vending machines. I would strongly suggest you stay in Vail Village itself. More to choose from in the food category and much more amenities.

20 minutes. For more info ask the front desk staff at Vail Racquet Club. This facility has over 300 condos. We have stayed at several of the condos. We love this resort. You can get the local lodging rating (bronze, silver, gold, platinum, etc) on the individual units at Racquet Club.
