Reviewed December 18, 2013

We had a very nice stay in a 1bedroom unit. Like everyone else's comments, the layout is unique. You enter the unit through the sleeping area which has the bed up against the wall. Built for efficient use of the area. Small single bed also in the sleeping area, perfect for a small child or someone who doesn't toss and turn. Sofa bed, usual "ok" in a pinch - probably a little more comfy just to put a sheet on the sofa and sleep on it. Lack of a cooktop or oven, but electric frying pan worked well for cooking up bacon and some easy dinners. Microwave, coffee maker with plenty of supplies. Small fridge, but perfect for just two of us. Kept everything really cold, in fact when I turned it up to max cold, some food froze. Plenty of towels for two adults Great indoor and outdoor hot tubs and pools. Sauna was nice as long as it was already warm or you turned it on plenty of time in advance. Took a while to warm up, but very nice once it was warm. Plenty of activities. Free shuttle to Beaver Creek for skiing. Great supply of very hot water. Great after a day of skiing. Air is dry, so picked up a humidifier at nearby walmart which helped keep some humidity in our unit. Heating was great. Wood burning fireplace and small deck. Quiet in spite of being right off route 70. Indoor pools close at 9 and we really did not hear kids running around at all. Lots of activities as well as ping pong. Stairs everywhere is unique, but that was a minor nuisance. Staff was great at check in and when two lights were out in out unit maintenance was there within 30 mins of our call. Garage parking available. Overall very pleasant stay. Internet only in the common areas, but I kind of appreciated the lack of service. Multiple fire pits and a gas fire pit outside at pool was really hot vein in December. One bedroom is comfortable for 2adults, probably still comfy with one child, but 4 adults would be tight. Housekeeping replaced all towels on day 4 of our 7 day stay. Subway on premise for quick meal.

Very convenient to vail as well. Did not try the bus to vail. We parked near the Safeway and took the free vail bus

Room Tip: Units closer to the lobby have fewer stairs. Elevators near lobby only

We are so happy you had such a great stay and took the time to write about it. The nice benefit about entering through the bedroom, is the the living room has access to the fireplace and sliding glass door leading to the outdoor balcony. We are always happy to take requests for certain views or floors. Hope to see you back soon. We are having a fantastic winter with lots of great snow.

After skiing in Vail for the day, we wanted accommodations that were close to the hill but affordable. We spent the evening at The Christie Lodge and my daughter and I were both pleased and impressed with our lodging. We loved the outdoor hot tub and fire pit - both perfect after skiing. The staff was wonderful, helpful and cheerful.

We are very happy you chose The Christie Lodge for your stay in the Vail Valley! We completely renovated our outdoor pool area a couple of years ago adding a 15 person hot tub and fire pit. I am glad to hear you had the opportunity to enjoy the area. Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience and we hope we see you again.

My wife and I stayed here during the Thanksgiving week for three nights while Nordic Skiing in the area. The design of the Lodge keeps the rooms warm with out being overly warm. The hot tubs were just outside of the room we stayed in on the first floor (104). They had towels available and we had no problem finding parking for out car. The Christie is with in walking distance of several decent restaurants and a grocery store and bakery. The Christie is close to the interstate and very easy to find.

I never stayed here, I was a Security Guard for this hotel back in 1997, just out of the Marine Corps. The staff and the owner are very nice here, miss this place. It was like we were one big family, and that was the kind of environment it was. It's a very centralized area especially if you plan on hitting all the ski resorts in the area. Thanks for all the positive memories, really do miss this place.

My husband and I are timeshare owners at Christie Lodge but always exchange our week. The weekend of November 8, 2013, I had a "girls getaway" weekend and we stayed in a 3BR/3BA at the Christie Lodge and had a fabulous time. It was nice having 3 bathrooms for 4 women! It I just west of Vail right off I-70. We hiked in East Vail and did some shopping afterwards on Saturday. On the way home (Colorado Springs) we stopped in Breckenridge and shopped some more. The staff was very helpful and courteous recommending places for lunch in Vail, etc. It was a wonderful weekend. The living room and kitchen are rather small. There used to be stove tops in the condos, but with recent renovations, they were taken out, but there is an electric skillet that worked just fine.

Room Tip: We were by the front desk and there was a hockey tournament going on that weekend, so Sunday morning...

For extended stay while waiting for our apartment to be ready, the Christie Lodge was extremely comfortable and very clean. The staff was friendly and helpful and seemed sincerely interested in our satisfaction with our stay. We will definitely recommend the Christie Lodge to friends and family for a nice place to stay in the area.
