Vail or Beaver Creek

Where do you recommend 3 women in their 40's who are getting together in Vail stay? We plan to go the weekend of October 19 - 21. I'm looking for good specials for this time of year. We want to be near the action, pool and spa, bars, etc... Is Beaver Creek worth looking into or is it more family and quiet then Vail? I have Marriott points but it's not important that we stay at the marriott unless it's good. Would like to get a feel for Vail for my friends who are flying in from other parts of the country. I hear a lot about Sonnalp (spelling) but I also heard their prices are outrages.

Ideas?

Tough choice. Prices are better in October than you think. Lodge at Vail and Sonnenalp are very nice. Spa at the Cascade is considered excellent. I like the Vail Mountain Lodge. Nice rooms, nice spa, excellent eats. Check out their website at http://www.vailmountainlodge.com/

Also visit Vail.com or VisitVailValley.com for price info, etc.

Sonnenalp, Vail Mountain Lodge & Spa or Tivoli Lodge are good choices in Vail. Beaver Creek will be a bit quiter than Vail at that time of year - but both will be relatively quite. You'll be able to find good dining & spa specials at that time. Aria is a great recommendation.

Vail Marriott is nice - but in Lionshead Village, which is excellent during ski season (close to Gondola) but quite in October.

Who has the best pool area and which hotel is closer to any nightlife that might be around---I do realize it's a slow time.

Not sure about pools - my best guess is Sonnenalp. Nightlife is a toss up of anything in Vail Village.
