I stayed at the Lodge at Vail during the Fall off-season as a result of a Priceline bid well under advertised rates. I must say I was a bit concerned after reading TripAdvisor reviews regarding uncomforatable Murphy beds in the studio rooms and dated decor; but my experience was far different. When I showed up, the front desk staff was friendly and welcoming. I had emailed the lodge before my stay to request a king size bed (no Murphy bed) and they fulfilled my request and even upgraded me to a "luxury" room. For those familiar with Priceline and other low cost 3rd party booking agents, hotels often give you their lowest tier room in an often horrible location--that was not the case here. The room was located in the newer "international wing" and was comfortably furnished with a huge bathroom. The seperated double vanities, robes, slippers, and humidifer was a nice touch. The other appointments were what I would expect of a luxury resort. During ski season this must be the epicenter of activity due to its prime location. Make use of the daily resort fee by using one of the multiple hot tubs, pools, excerise room, free Internet, and coffee and tea. The bottom line is that, at the price, the Lodge at Vail made for a relaxing weekend and I would recommend it to others.
