Nice, quiet hotel in Vail village
Posted Aug 1, 2016
The Austria Haus hotel offers the luxury of a quiet retreat right in Vail Village. After we pulled our car in front of the hotel, we enjoyed a stress-free stay. Valet parking was very convenient, and both check in and check out were fast and efficient. The staff in the hotel was extremely helpful, professional and friendly. Both the room and the bathroom were very spacious, clean and comfortable. There was a shower as well as a very nice bathtub and we appreciated the quality of the shampoo, conditioner and lotions. The armchairs and ottoman provided for a nice space to relax in the room and to read the variety of newspapers available in the lobby. Our room did not have a view (the small window overlooked public parking off the highway) but it was not a big issue since we were able to walk all over Vail village. We enjoyed having the hotel pool to ourselves in the evening and loved the nice temperature of the water. We were surprised by the size of the pool and the fitness room (smaller than what we expected) but were told we could also have access to the pool and fitness center at the Lodge, which apparently were much bigger. We were very impressed by how quiet and restful the hotel was! There are many restaurants and shops within walking distance. You can also stroll along the river. We did not use our car until we checked out!
