My wife and I stayed at the Austria Haus on our honeymoon in January of 2013, and the property and our time there was fantastic. Our room was well appointed with heated bathroom floors, seperate tub and shower, excellent furnishings, in room gas fireplace, ample closet space, and a very comfortable bed. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. In addition, the property is only steps from the famed covered bridge in Vail. It is about a 5 minute walk to the base of one of the gondolas. Whenever we needed our ski equipment, we just informed the front desk and they immediately got it out of their secure storage area and provided it to us. The Austria Haus also offered a great breakfast every morning, which included both European and American style offerings. The Austria Haus also included use of an excellent spa and gym in an adjacent property. I would absolutely recommend staying at the Austria Haus and will plan to stay there again on my next trip Vail, Colorado.

Room Tip: If you're willing to spend a little more, ask for a room facing into the main part of Vail Villa...

If you like smaller, more boutique type properties, then you will probably like Austria Haus. I agree with the other reviewers in terms of the comfort and size of the guest rooms and the great location of the property. Loved walking around Vail Village. However, their rooms are noisy if you face the front of the property as when the bars close down at night, you can hear all the revelers down on the street/sidewalk. As well, I did not feel their guest service was as great as some others have indicated. My husband and I booked a Columbine room (which had to be pre-paid due to peak season) a month before we arrived. However, when we checked into the property, the front desk clerk originally tried to check us into a Lupine room, which was much less expensive than the one we had pre-paid. Then, he asked if we would like an upgrade to a suite (as the hotel was very empty that week-end), but instead of offering it to us on a complimentary basis, he wanted us to pay even more for this "privilege". We travel a lot both for business and pleasure and frequently are upgraded to nicer rooms when we check into hotels, but never for an additional fee. Typically a high quality hotel will do that to engender greater guest loyalty and strong word-of-mouth. It seems that the Austria Haus was simply trying to make more money on a light week-end instead of offering superior guest service.

I loved it! Perfect location, great staff (Jared, Mike, and Grant). The room was comfortable with an excellent view, parking was included, great breakfast, and we enjoyed the outdoor hot tub too!

We will for sure be back. Note, the gym is small so use the sister property gym.

I arrived in Vail late Saturday afternoon and the guys at reception (Jared and Dave) were great. Arranged a competitive walk in rate and I was in the room within 10 minutes.
The room was large, well fitted with an extremely comfortable king size bed.
Location is excellent in the middle of Vail Village.
Snow fell on Sunday ....
All in all a great short stop in Vail.

The Austria Haus exceeded our expectations. The rooms are cozy (request one with a fireplace) & very nice with good service. The hotel is beautiful & in a great location. The breakfast was delicious. We will be back!!

Very nice hotel with a friendly staff. This Hotel has an excellent location it is situated at the edge of Vail Village, and is in walking distance to many shops and restaurants. The room was a decent size and was a unique and cute set up. The bed was very comfy and we had a relaxing nights sleep. Food on the property was not really an option. We wanted a late night snack but there were no food vending machines on the property we had to walk across the street to the bus station to get snacks. Breakfast was not very good everything was left out at room temperature including hard boiled eggs so we decided to have some toast and get an early lunch in the villiage. We will definitely be back, but with snacks. :)

We recently stayed the night at the Austria Haus, a quick trip to see the leaves changing. Upon arrival, they checked us in early and upgraded our room. The room was small, but comfortable with a nice sitting area and great bathroom with a fantastic soaking tub. Included in our stay was the valet parking and breakfast. Everyone working here was helpful and friendly. The breakfast had a pretty large selection of food, the smoked salmon was delicious. The location was great, it is steps from the covered bridge to Vail Village. The only downside during our stay was that the hot tub was closed for repair.
