Sitzmark Lodge at Vail
Ranked #9 of 30 Hotels in Vail
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 18, 2014

This is my fourth trip over 30 years and as we travel from Australia it is essential to have a lodge that meets all our requirements. This one does, it is small, friendly has attentive and helpful staff, great breakfast and lovely hot soup and hot wine on your return from the slopes in the afternoon. Really close to the gondola and in the middle of the village with wonderful comfy beds, I would return every year if I could, couldn't imagine staying anywhere else. Suzanne

My wife and I spent a week at the Sitzmark an loved the staff and location at this hotel. It has a very at home feeling. The tempur-pedic beds are great after a day on the slopes. You can't find a more convenient or friendly hotel in Vail. Many of the people staying there come year after year.

What a wonderful place. We chose it because of the tempur-pedic beds, but were thrilled with the cleanliness, view, and location. Delightful staff. Convenient ski storage. A bit of a walk to the lifts when carrying skis if you have children, but not a big deal for fit adults.

We booked our room here when we planned a very last-minute vacation to Vail... and wow, were we happy with our choice! This cozy and sweet lodge has an extremely friendly staff, who genuinely want to take care of their guests. We were surprised to learn upon arrival that there was a delicious complimentary continental breakfast provided daily. What a time saver in the morning with children in tow! In addition to the filling and yummy start to the day was a late-afternoon complimentary soup provision complete with hot cider, cocoa, coffee, tea or spiced hot wine... Wow! We would come back from the slopes, gather by the lobby fire and enjoy our daily soup. Such a "homey" and lovely way to finish off the day. We highly recommend the Sitzmark!

Room Tip: We enjoyed the added fireplace and private balcony... worth the extra money.

The Sitzmark is a gem in the middle of Vail Village. The location could not be more perfect and the clean rooms and lovely staff make for a wonderful experience. Get a room facing the mountain to sit on the balcony for an afternoon beer!

You will not find a better deal in Vail. Located in Vail Village, walking distance to Gondola 1, tons of shops and restaurants, a movie theater, ice rink, and the bus stop to other locations in Vail. Every member of the staff that I encountered was incredibly friendly and helpful. Complementary breakfast every morning, with healthy and hearty options to fill you up for a day of skiing. Complementary hot spiced wine and soup to warm you up in the afternoon. The cozy lounge area is a great gathering place where the guests mingle.
The only drawback is perhaps the age - the hallway noise can be a bit much in the evenings and mornings.

My husband and I made were desperate to get away for a ski vacation over the holidays, but failed to make timely reservations. On a referral from another local, sold-out hotel, we called the Sitzmark. At half the cost of other area hotels (still at holiday rates though), we spent four fabulous nights in this small gem of a hotel, owned and operated by the same couple after 40 years. From the central Vail Village location, to the delicious Tempurpedic mattress, accommodating staff, the rather full continental breakfast, welcome wine night in the proprietors' apartment, and hot chocolate in the afternoon, Sitzmark is now our favorite spot to stay at our favorite ski mountain. And the Left Bank French restaurant attached to the Sitzmark, tres magnifique! You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: For holiday fireworks, the mountain side is ideal. We stayed on the creek side, nice and quiet.
