Just came back from a week in Vail. We rented a one bedroom condo and were very happy with it. It had a small living room with a nice gas fireplace, TV and DVD player, a good sized kitchen with nice, granite counter tops, the bedroom had a good size, only the bathroom was tiny. It was just wide enough to squeeze a toilet and a bathtub/ shower in it, very tight.
We did not use any of the facilities like the hot tub or pool but they looked both very nice and tempting.
We did not have a rental car and used the free shuttle to Vail every day. It is a bit of work to drag your heavy stuff towards the bus, which tends to be very crowded around 9 am, this follows a 15-20 minute bus ride, in Vail you have to climb down a long set of stairs and then still walk about 5-10 minutes to the lifts and that all in full ski gear. Kinda stretches and also in the afternoon, when you have to climb the stairs again with all your stuff on... not a piece of cake. Remember you are at high altitude. If one does not mind all that then the location and apartment was fine.
Found the laundry facilities in the building right next to ours very convenient. They had about 3 washers and three dryers and it was never busy.
