Reviewed March 15, 2014

We had some friends fly in and head to Vail for the weekend. We hadn't seen a few of these friends for many years so we wanted to get up and connect. The Burton Snowboard event was going on so I struggled to find a room for less than $600-$1,000/night but via www.vailonsail.com I found a more reasonably priced room at the Galatyn Lodge. Roslyn could not have been nicer, in fact all of the staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating, making us feel right at home. Our room was really spacious and quiet and the pool was a real treat. I will definitely return!

My wife and I found the Galatyn Lodge for a short trip to Vail. The location was central to everything including the free Vail bus system. Our room was well appointed, clean and spacious. Brian and Andy were helpful with every aspect of our stay from getting our gear to our room to making dinner reservations. We would very much enjoy returning on our next Vail trip.

Room Tip: Our room on the back was very quiet with no compromise of view.

We have been staying at The Galatyn for many years and love it. The Galatyn is a charming small luxury lodge minutes from the center of Vail village and minutes to the gondola and chair 6. The rooms and suites are very comfortable and spacious and decorated beautifully. The Staff - Andy, Brian and Roslyn are friendly and knowledgable and go out the their way to make your stay enjoyable. We love the outdoor pool after a long day on the mountain.

The Galatyn was a very Nice surprise as this was a last-minute reservation and our first time staying there. The staff are extremely friendly, and even offered to mail me some clothes I did not realize I had forgotten there. The hotel is very nice and clean and it has a huge heated pool outside. It is conveniently located only steps away from the Golden Peak lift and is a very short walk to Vail Village Gondola. I will definitely be going back!

I've been staying at the Galatyn every year for the last several years. This last stay was very nice. The staff (Andy, Brian and Rosalyn) is extremely helpful, friendly and attentive. The rooms and accommodations are very nice and my stay was quiet and restful when I needed it. I'll be back next year.

Made a last minute booking with Brian who is, I believe, the manager of the property. He was so wonderful when we got in Friday night after our drive from Denver. He loaded up the luggage cart in the basement garage (which is considerably roomier than some Vail properties)including our skis, took us up to our room to unload then put our skis away for us in the ski locker on the main floor.
We stayed in a comfortable "Hotel Room" which is basically one of two extra bedrooms bookending the two bedroom condos. The kingsized bed was comfortable, we loved the "smart tv" and the comcast cable complete with on-demand and dvd and there were lots of handy extra amenities in case of emergency in one of the bathroom drawers. Brian even got a little fridge for us to use in the room the next day. If you are environmentally conscious you will appreciate the fact that soap shampoo, conditioner and lotions are stored in large, refillable dispensers.
The Galatyn has a nice heated pool right out back off of the lobby and offers privileges to use a nearby health club. We also appreciated the Keurig in the lobby so we could have an early coffee before leaving for skiing. The location is perfect-more or less between the Riva Bahn Chairlift at Golden Peak and the Gondola at the Vail base. On our second day we hopped on the shuttle and in one stop we were right at Golden Peak without having to carry our skis very far. At the end of the day one can ski to the very bottom of the beginner chairlift at Golden Peak and ski down and behind the bottom of the chair all the way to the road. Once you remove your skis you are a very short walk to the Galatyn-pracitcally "ski-in." We loved the roomy individual ski lockers which were thoughtfully equipped with packets of hand warmers, lip balm and granola bars! This was very much appreciated.
The hotel room accommodations do not have their own kitchens so I cannot speak to those amenities. We will definitely return to this property, probably this ski season.

Room Tip: Some top floor rooms may have a view of the mountain. Some of those rooms seem to have balconies. Ou...

Staff is incredibly attentive - and we had a LOT of needs! Heated pool was refreshing and a blast. Very clean rooms and very comfortable. Very easy access to the mountain - super easy. Big, giant, heated pool is a lot of fun in winter. Climate controlled underground parking is a huge luxury in the winter (other parking so close to the mountain is $50/day!).
