“We didn't want to go home!!!”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

This was a quick weekend getaway with my wife and parents. We were absolutely amazed by the level of service given at the front desk. The room was amazing with a full kitchen, dining room, and family space. The pool was warm and secluded...a very nice treat! I would recommend this property to anyone wanting a great, well placed condo!

Room Tip: The Caribou Suite is amazing!

A weekend stay in Vail for eight, including grown children, in-laws, and two toddlers, could have been a taxing and ridiculously expensive experience. Instead, we had a blast! Our four bedroom condo at the Galatyn Lodge, although not cheap, left absolutely nothing to be desired. The bedrooms (each with its own bath) were large and extremely comfortable. The kitchen contained every pan/utensil/cleaning item we desired. The thoughtful layout of the condo allowed the babies to have uninterrupted naps in seemingly soundproof bedrooms while the rest of us partied around the fireplace. The nearest chair lift, shops, and restaurants were a short walk away. The hotel staff was helpful and truly friendly. We felt at home, and we will definitely return!

I'm an AA flight attendant travelling with a teenage daughter for a quick weekend trip. I wanted a reasonably priced place to stay in the heart of Vail Village that was quiet, comfortable, but unique and special for a mother/daughter bonding experience.
The Galatyn Lodge exceeded my expectations.

I hardly heard a noise from any other guests!
Fresh hot coffee is a short elevator ride down as is the large, but extremely warm pool...Perfect!

We loved this place.....very quaint and close to the Village. Perfect access to the lifts as well and very friendly staff. No bar or restaurant though so if you are looking for all the amenities of a big hotel, this is not the place for you.
Enjoy!!

We love the Galatyn -- our family (2 parents, 4 kids, 1 grandmother, 1 boyfriend) have stayed her for four winters. After trying many other places, we were so happy to get into the Galatyn. The rooms are comfortable, big and clean. The bathrooms are clean and spacious. The living spaces are pretty, well organized and comfortable. The pool is so warm and fun. The ski lockers are fabulous -- big with well-organized spaces for skis, gloves, helmets, etc... And they even have power bars and Chapstick for you each day. Best of all, the staff are friendly, well-informed and SO HELPUL. The Galatyn is the perfect spot for families. It's on the edge of the Village so it's not loud at all, but it's one minute's walk from the center of the Village.

We have stayed at the Galatyn Lodge for 3 years straight and love it. It is one block from the heart of Vail Village. Very friendly staff. Very clean. Not alot of frills, but great value and very comfortable place. You can almost ski to the front door by coming down the Golden Peak run.

We highly recommend this place!
