“Great Resort!”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in November. Our room was very clean, modern, and well decorated. The bed and pillows were great! The staff was very friendly and helpful and the cafe and gift shop were nice as well. To top it off, we stayed in a upgraded room with a Travelzoo voucher for only $109 a night! I would definitely recommend!

Staying at Vail Cascade for 5 days is fantastic It was a great choice by my hubby to give a Christmas present to the whole family, with other choice of Las Vegas, the kids unanimously voted Vail Colorado! The location, shuttle bus,, worth it short distances to lift and different ranges of skiing slope for a first timer skier a spectacular vacation site cant be so boring, the nite lift is romantic don't forget that one and the most a place to eat in the mountain way above the town.........

The convenience of having the ski lift right outside the door was great, and being able to check your gear with Charter Sports was so nice. The rooms were good sized and had nice amenities. I would say that for how much we paid for the President's Day weekend, the bathroom could have been a little more updated, eg the tub. The shuttle was very convenient as well. I also thought that there were not sufficient spas and a small outdoor pool for a ski hotel. I think capacity for all the spas was about 25, which is not enough after a long day on the slopes. I also went over to the 'health club.' To walk over from the hotel is depressing, the covered walkway is not heated, the hallways are desolate and the trip was not entirely worth it. I had planned to go to the spa, but after checking it out, I decided not to do so. It was too far, too cold and too isolated. I think they need to reconfigure their services, add some better lighting and update their common areas.

We stayed for two nights at Vail Cascade... and we loved it! Our room was very clean and nicely decorated. The towels were great and the bed was AMAZING! The hotel is removed from the busy downtown area of Vail, however we loved the quiet location and the shuttle. The shuttle runs about every 10 minutes from 8am-Midnight. The concierge was helpful and the front desk staff were very friendly and inviting. We had to ask for bathrobes and they were delivered within five minutes! We were very lucky to find a discounted rate on Expedia that was part of a rental car package. Our only complaint was the location of our room... It had a great mountainside view but was a long walk from the bar, front desk, shuttle. We typically wouldnt mind this, however it was hard to lug ski gear after a long day on the mountain. Overall, I would recommend this hotel to couples or families! It is very romantic (the hottub and pool are amazing!) but also inviting to familes and groups. We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: The mountainside view room (without a balcony) was very spacious and comfortable. We didnt feel the...

Dear Erin,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your recent trip to Vail. As alpine guides to the very best experiences in Colorado, we agree that our location and access to Vail Mountain can’t be beat. If you think winter is amazing, you should come back and check out the summer. Should your travels bring you back to Colorado, we’d love to welcome you again to Vail Cascade.

I love staying here! Beautiful setting and love the free shuttle to town. Always clean and great service. The pool area with the hot tubs along the creek is beautiful and relaxing. Seems to be the best price in Vail. Can't wait to stay here again..

We just came back from 4 nights staying at the Vail Cascade. We had a 2 bedroom condo plus den which was a perfect size for a family of 5. The living area on the first floor was very spacious. While the decor was a bit 80s, the bathrooms and the kitchen were both updated. Everything was neat and tidy and housekeeping came daily. While we had a bit of a walk to the main hotel, the shuttle was always easy to use should we decide not to walk. The ski concierge was hectic at times but easy to use and convenient to the Cascade chairlift. The pool and hot tub were very nice and my kids LOVED the indoor basketball court. The staff throughout the Cascade was always very friendly and helpful and I woul def stay there again.

Dear Robin,
Glad to hear your family enjoyed their trip to Vail. As the ideal Colorado base camp, we take great honor in providing experiences as unique and memorable as our mountain setting. Should your travels bring you back to Colorado or if you would like to return to the Vail Cascade specifically, please let me know. Forecasters are predicting one of the best winter seasons and we’d love for you and your family to experience the most exciting time of the year in the Rocky Mountains.

we just stayed at the Cascade for a medical conference. While it is not the most luxurious or new hotel, it was a fantastic place to stay. The service is unbelievable. everyone is so friendly and goes out of their way to help particularly Geoff and Alex.. There is a convenient shuttle to the various villages. The ski rental is on location and the chair lift is literally steps from the hotel. There is live music in the lobby constantly. The concierge is great. There is a great hot tub and pool that is well heated and fantastic even in the winter. My wife used the spa (massage, yoga etc) and said it was great.
I cant really comment on pricing since we paid the "conference" rate.
Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: higher is better (only four floors) as there is live music in the lobby. Though music is fairly mell...
