My daughter in law and myself spent 2 nights at this resort the end of October for our annual spa weekend. The rooms and resort were amazing. We had 2 big comfy beds in the end wing facing the creek. It was very quiet and the view was beautiful. We were close to the more private hot tub, which we enjoyed. No one was in it except for us. The outdoor pool and main hot tub were heated and felt good on the cold wintery evenings.
Even though we purchased the deal from Travel Zoo at a discount, we were not treated any different than had we paid full price. The service was excellent. Every time we entered or exited the resort there was a doorman there to help us.
The free bus to Vail Village was also very handy. It was never a very long wait to get a ride and the driver was a delight. It was the off season so he would drop us off close to our destination if we wanted him to.
We did spend time in the lobby bar and ate Duck Dumplings which were very good. One thing to keep in mind is that they add a 20% gratuity to everything you purchase, whether in the bar or in the restaurant.
We tried the breakfast buffet both mornings and it had a good selection and was very tasty. It is a bit pricy, but no more so than buying everything ala carte.
We both had massages in the Aria Spa, which were enjoyable, but I have had better. They were a bit pricy, also.
We hope to return again someday .
