“Superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

We had my son's wedding in the garden area in August, both bride and groom families stayed in condos. The property is absolutely beautiful, the service excellent and accommodations very comfortable. The location allows one to walk throughout for shopping and dining. I want to thank the staff and booking agent/s who took care of our reservations and arranged a perfect wedding for us to enjoy.

Another plus for RockResorts as usual!

Room Tip: Always good accommodations, all rooms are perfect.

Congratulations to your son on his marriage! Our staff here at the Lodge love hosting events and having the opportunity to spoil our guests while they are here to celebrate a special occasion. I am so happy that you and your family had a great time while you were here. We will hope to see you all again to celebrate the many anniversaries to come. Cheers!

Beside being a fabulous ski and outdoor sports resort town, Vail is the home of one of the pre-eminent orthopedic clinics in the world. Patients, including many famous athletes, come from all over the world for orthopedic surgery. The Lodge At Vail is particularly kind and experienced in dealing with pre-and post surgical guests.

The Lodge is very well located for both the Clinic and the Village. The concierges and front desk staff at The Lodge are very knowledgeable, helpful and caring.

Room Tip: Steadman Clinic patients are permitted substantial room discounts at several fine hotels in Vail wh...

Attended a wedding in Vail and this was the designated hotel. From the bell men to the front desk the service was impeccable. Umbrellas were provided for use during afternoon showers (and the wedding up at the wedding deck!) Shuttle van helped tremendously getting guests to the Eagle Bahn Gondola and back. Staff were all very polite and accommodating. They helped use make the most of our short time in Vail. Central location was great but it's a 12 minute walk to the Lionsgate end of town along the creek. Really reminiscent of the Sun Valley Resort in Idaho.

Breakfast at Cucina Rustica was fresh and well prepared. If you want something more than the standard 2 eggs and hashbrowns meal - this is the place. The fire pit on the back patio was wonderful. This was the beginning of "shoulder season" and the prices in town were good. Vendors were glad to see you and very friendly.

Room selection was a 1 bedroom unit with a view of the Vail 1 gondola. Very nice with flower boxes on the decks and a very comfy bed. Plenty of room for 2 people and the sofa turned into a bed in front of the fireplace if the kids come along.

Room Tip: Ask for the newer section with a view of the hill. These rooms are on the east end of the property...

I have stayed at the Lodge a number of times while having surgery at the Steadman Hawkins Clinic. The location, amenities and personal attention received from staff is what has me coming back. The hotel manager, front desk personnel, and housekeeping staff are professional, personable and accommodating, going out of their way to insure that I have a positive experience. This is the place to stay in Vail if you are visiting the Steadman Hawkins Clinic.
I chose a residence room with a full kitchen and a lovely deck overlooking the adjacent pedestrian village. It was the perfect place to bask in the sun and people watch while recovering. The Lodge’s amenities fulfilled every need while restaurants, galleries and a variety of boutiques were just steps from my back door.
Once you stay at the Lodge, you will never want to stay anywhere else. My family always looks forward to visiting Vail and their stay at The Lodge.

Room Tip: I love the rooms overlooking the pedestrian village but have stayed in rooms overlooking the pool wi...

Overall, I really enjoyed the property, the staff and the service. Since the rooms at the property have different amenities, I was not thrilled that mine did not have AC, but quite frankly that was the only main component missing from my recent experience. I will certainly return for a future visit.

Room Tip: If AC is important during non ski season, ask ahead of time for a room that has it.

Wonderful location for all of your Vail experiences. The Lodge takes you back in time; the details of the resort are comfort along with beauty. All of the staff were helpful, gracious that you were a guest along with informative of entire area. The town center area is at your 'front and back' door! Just walk to the best of everything that Vail has to offer. Took in some local golf and then the hot tub and pool were spot-on! It was quite, original and just perfect for a Vail area weekend. Suggest the hotel bar for a beginning of a great evening around town. Next trip to the Lodge at Vail will be most rewarding as expected.

Room Tip: You may choose a room over the pool and hot tub area.

The Lodge is really THE lodge at Vail !!!

Superb location, in the middle of the town center, walking distance to the lifts and close to any good place of the city.

The room was excelent, a 2 floors and 2 bedrooms facility with great kitchen and living room.

Fantastic restaurant and first class hotel service ( including the valet, ski rental, room service, etc).

We plan to be back there for sure.
