We stayed at VRI Streamside at Vail in the Cedar building for three nights in January 2012 so we could hit the slopes at Vail.

Pros:
-The resort was right off the highway, which may be a con for some people, but we didn't notice any noise, and it made the resort very easy to find.

-The resort was pretty close to Lionshead and Vail Village, and a complimentary shuttle took about 5 minutes to reach the slopes. The shuttle ran every 15 minutes throughout the day, and every 30 minutes until 11pm, and was always on time.

-The resort itself was clean and comfortable, and the hot tubs, steam room and sauna were just what was needed at the end of a full day of skiing! The people are the front desk were very friendly and helpful.

-The room was a good size, the kitchen had everything we needed and we liked the huge flatscreen TV and the cable!

Cons:

-The stairs! The resort has one elevator from the main lobby that goes up to the fourth floor, but we had two huge flights of stairs to go from there to our room! Suitcases and skis are not light, especially when you're already exhausted, and the altitude didn't help. They really need to put in another elevator to solve this problem.

Overall we loved the resort, and we're already looking to book for next year - however I will be crossing my fingers that they put in some kind of elevator before then!

Room Tip: If you have any problem with stairs, ask for one of the lowest rooms possible!

The apartment and amenities were all very good - the set up of the apartment, pool etc were great. The downside was that the holiday was beside an interstate. I can't think why Vail is such a popular place - the skiing in the winter must be exceptional to cancel out staying beside a highway. Vail is a very sweet Austrian styled village but a little pricey. The gondola is worth taking especially if you have lunch at the top as you get a $15 coupon with your $29 ticket to the top. All in all we enjoyed our stay but would not go back again - did I mention the highway (lol) and the steps 109 to our apartment - we got use to these by the end of the week but the steps left us breathless at the beginning of the week as we were coming from sea level. If you go out of the highway valley the scenery is great with lots of bike paths but also lots of hills so you will have to be use to altitude.

This was our first time staying in Vail. We’ve been to almost every ski town in Colorado and Vail is among the nicest. The mountain is enormous, great conditions and Vail Village looks like you are in the Swiss Alps with its architecture. We traveled with 6 adults, all in our late-20’s.

Pros:
Great location! Grocery stores & shopping centers across I-70, only a 2 minute drive.
Free, reliable shuttle to and from Lionshead & Vail Village every 15-30 minutes.
The unit we stayed in was very spacious and clean with a loft. The unit was completely updated with granite countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you need including coffee filters, dish soap & dishwasher detergent. It had 3 full bathrooms and could sleep 6 people with privacy or has accommodations for 10.
Plenty of towels, sheets, blankets & pillows for everyone.
The living room had a wood burning fireplace and a large flatscreen tv with HD cable & free HBO.
Great views of the mountains.
Free laundry facilities within the Cedar building.
The whole complex had a clean, but had a dated appearance. The pool, hot tubs, steam room & sauna were clean.
Parking was never an issue, there were always spots available.


Cons: The STEPS! There were alittle over 100 from parking lot to the third floor units. There are no elevators within the Cedar building and it’s a hike. We are all young and athletic and didn’t think it would be a problem, but towards the end of our stay, we found the steps nothing but an inconvenience. Going up and down the steps daily with luggage, groceries, ski gear was a pain and tiring.
We didn’t like how the unit was heated. There are only base-board heaters & the fireplace. When temps dipped into the negatives, the heaters couldn’t warm the unit adequately. It was freezing, but in the mid-20’s/30’s, it was comfortable.
We also didn’t like that the fireplace was wood-burning. You had to lug the firewood up 50 steps to the unit, which was a huge pain. Not something you want to do after a day of skiing.

Would we go back? To Vail, definitely. Would we stay at the Cedars again? Maybe. While there are a lot of positives to staying at the Cedars, without an elevator, I couldn’t recommend staying here to anyone other than athletic individuals. At over 8,000 ft elevation, hiking these steps daily is even more challenging. I couldn't see a family with children or older people walking the steps multiple times a day.
