Sitzmark Lodge at Vail
Ranked #10 of 30 Hotels in Vail
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 24, 2005

Ok first of all to the nasty person mentioning the garage. The Sitzmark does not even have a garage for cars to park in. You can only park out front so I do not even think you are reviewing the right hotel.
On another note the Sitzmark lodge is fantastic. I stayed there for a week over easter break last spring. The staff is extremely helpful and courteous, they have spots out front for you to park your car, the rooms are extremely clean, there is an outdoor pool and big jacuzzi overlooking the mountain, they store your skis for you, they have a decent continenntal breakfast if you get up early enough, cable tvs and dvd players, high speed internet in the lobby that is almost always open, has the Left Bank Restaurant downstairs which is the best restaurant in Vail.(It seriously is make sure you make a reservation before coming as you have to book it weeks in advance and ask for souffles for desert when making reservation) The hotel is less than a five minute walk while carrying skiis to the vista bahn!! And best of all this comes for a price of less than 200 a night with taxes. I used to stay at the tivoli lodge which was my favorite because it shared the same price but they are now building that into a luxury hotel so the Sitzmark is the last fairly reasonable place to stay in downtown vail village. I have no idea what the people complaining about the rooms are complaining about. You come to Vail to ski, not to sit in your hotel rooms and watch TV. If that is what you want then stay at the Sonnenalp. If you want the best ski in/out hotel in Vail though that doesn't cost the equivalency of a new car to stay at then stay at the Sitzmark.

The property has a perfect location in the Village, the rooms are just fine, and the views are beautiful. You must take the price into account when reviewing this hotel. The price, for the location, is very reasonable so to expect Sonnenalp amenities and gourmet continetal fare is unreasonable. If you want to experience the village, get a clean comfortable room, for a very reasonable price the Sitzmark is where to stay.

I do not understand what this person is writting about, everything about the Sitzmark Lodge is fantastic! My family stays there each year they come to Vail to visit, location is great, pool and staff is great. This is the local's favorite place to put their family's up in, just ask any local.

We've been staying here for over ten years. The staff knows which room we want and holds it for us...and that's just one of the ways that they take pains to maximize our enjoyment. The location couldn't be better...very short walk to Vistabahn. The rooftop jacuzzi is charming. The Left Bank restaurant that shares the building is a gem...and couldn't be more convenient! The continental breakfast is just right...a wide selection of items and you get to the slopes fast. (I bring a tray upstairs for myself. My husband likes to eat in the lounge.) As for going somewhere else for a four-star breakfast as one reviewer said: I'd guess that you're not going to Vail for all-day skiing...your breakfast takes too long to eat and too long to digest!

I have never experienced such horrible service from any hotel (and I've done a lot of cheap traveling). The employees were extremely rude and unhelpful, often sighing in disgust when asked recommendations for activities or directions. The place is also completely overpriced and the 'outdoor accomodations' are cramped and very disappointing. Parking garage was full the entire time so we never did get to park our car down there. Please don't waste a beatiful vacation by staying at this nightmare hotel. There are plenty of other places worth your time and money.

The Sitzmark has nothing in it's favor EXCEPT good location, cheap price, and rooms on the back side overlooking a picture-perfect gurgling creek with snowy rocks around it. The breakfast is inedible and we go out to a 4 star hotel for b'fst every day.
