I just came back from 4 days at the LionsHead. I went for work and was pleasantly surprised. Typically my family and I stay at upscale resorts, but I must say this is the top location in Vail. It is right next to the gondola and perfect for skiing. Our conference was catered and the food was excellent. Aveda products are in all rooms and maid service was fabulous.
On the downside, it is a bit rustic and rooms vary. Colleagues had a room that was much nicer than ours. My boss had a condo and it was gorgeous--granite and stainless eat in kitchen with two bedrooms and a bath, fireplace in the family room. Back door opened to the gondola. When I go back this winter, my family will have a condo for skiing.

What a place. The location is perfect - right next to the gondola. Our 2 bedroom was quite large, spacious, clean and the kitchen had everything you would need. This is the best location in Lionshead. The hot tube is also realy nice.

We booked 2 apts (2 rooms each) for 6 days.
The apartments were very comfortable, and the location is absolutely the best in Lionhead.
If you think about Skiing in Vail, don´t miss the Lionsquare Lodge !!!

Lion Square Lodge is older but can't be beat on location and service. The two bedroom that we stayed in was dated but very adequate for a family of four. It was very clean and the staff was exceptional. The hot tubs and pool were also clean and well-maintained.

We just returned from 4 nights at Lion Square and really can't complain about much of anything. We stayed in a single room with two double beds and found the rooms to be recently updated and clean. If I had to nit pick, my only complaints would be the rooms are on the small side and the beds are average at best, even after the renovation.

The location is great and the staff goes of their way to attend to any of your needs. The lodge also has any amenity you would require for a ski trip; hot tub, sauna, etc.

If you can score a good rate at Lion Square it's a no brainer.

We had a great time in Vail and a large part of that had to do with our stay at Lion Square. The location is perfect - right next to the Eagle Bahn gondola. Our room was quite large, spacious, clean and fairly well appointed with gas fireplace; we also had a balcony with view. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We wholeheartedly recommend Lion Square to others.

My family and I traveled to Vail from Tennessee in February for a ski vacation, and despite several previous trips to the area, this visit was our best yet. The Lion's Square was extremely accommodating for our seven member group (small children included), and everyone on staff (especially the front desk crew) met our every need.

We will definitely include The Lion Square on our next family adventure this coming February!
