We came in for the 50th anniversary celebrations, but despite paying top dollar, our room was tiny, so tiny it could not accommodate a bedside table on both sides of the bed! With the drapes open, people on the next door balconies could see right in to our room (we did not have a balcony). The sliding door to our bathroom literally had one foot of leeway before you landed in the bathtub. The hotel was shabby and dirty - carpet, masonry and woodwork. There was NO place to sit and have a nice cocktail after skiing except bunched around an outdoor fire pit. The indoor spot set aside for apre ski was a windowless staging area for the restaurant with large conference tables and a lonely leather couch you would find in a second hand store sitting next to the fireplace with no place to set down a cocktail, although since there was no ambience to be had, who would want to sit there anyway? We had to track down someone to serve us a drink. The workout room was nice but I had to call the front desk for water as the attendant was busily working out. At $500/night, definitely not a good choice to enjoy Vail anymore. I would also have to reconsider other Rock Resorts. That being said, the staff was polite and attentive.
