My fiance and I have stayed at several hotels and condo complexes in the Vail Valley over the years. Since our 3-night stay here last weekend, this has become our all-time favorite. The hotel represents classic Vail -- it's elegant and cozy and makes you feel like you're in a European mountain lodge. It offers luxury without being pretentious. Other hotels in the area are pretty cookie-cutter and don't capture the Old World spirit of this town. From now on, we'll always stay at the Lodge to fully envelop ourselves in the Vail atmosphere.
The rooms, the grand staircase, the layout of the entire hotel makes it feel more like a mansion than a hotel.
Our room had a nice balcony and beautiful view, so time spent in the hotel room didn't feel like wasted time. I loved the wooden beams running across the ceiling in our room. Another touch that made me feel like I was somewhere special, not in just another hotel.
The location is ideal -- everything you want (shops, restaurants, ski slopes) are literally right outside your door. Even with its convenient locations, we decided to stay at the hotel for a few meals because Elways had a fantastic happy hour (the honey bourbon manhattan was delicious!) and the breakfast was really reasonably priced and tasty.
From now on, when we visit Vail we'll always book at the lodge.
