The hotel is very well located. about 1 1/2 block from gondola. Great service in all respects. Hotel is well maintained and the staff in all areas is outstanding.

Nice hotel within walking distance to the ski slop

Pros: The hotel was within walking distance to the Gondola.
Cons: More affordable food options.
Location: The hotel was within walking distance to the Gondola, shops and local restaurants. There is a bus stop across the street to go to Vail Village.
I had a great time at Vail. The skiing was great. The hotel is a short walk from the slopes so it was easy to get back after being on the mountain all day. I have stayed at this hotel many times over the years and have always had a great experience. I'd stay here again on a future visit.

My room was beautiful and very clean but someone previous had left dried finger nail polish in the sink that the hotel did not remove and my comforter was torn at the seem down one side. The breakfast was wonderful and had a lot of selection but I was sad to find the eggs were powdered.

Pros: The staff
Location: The bus is free and will take you from one side of the village to the other, Cripple Creek backcountry was an awesome store
The rooms were pretty much like any other Marriott with a huge price difference. I get that it's vail, still I've stayed at the landing at Lake Tahoe which was expensive but you got your money's worth. Since I was there on Christmas, I took my family to the Christmas buffet, on my reservations there was no posted price for it. We ate at the morning buffet every morning at $20 per person which was reasonable. The Christmas buffet ended up being $85 per person which was just a stupid price considering what it offered. it's not that I couldn't afford it, it was not worth the price. I thought that the village would be shut down on Christmas, it wasn't there was many other dinner options. Overall bang for buck I'd take my kids to Lake Tahoe or snowbird/park city next time. As a skier, ya do have to check off vail. We did have a great time and the people were all awesome.

Posted Dec 22, 2016
Pros: Great location to lifts and village. Ski and snowboard valet at base of Lionshead. Bus stop right out the front door. Amenities were top notch
Cons: $35/day resort fee and NO free wi-fi, come on!
Location: Location was great. Close to lifts and ski and snowboard valet at base of mountain. Free ski and snowboard storage.
Great location in Lionshead. Close to lifts and Lionshead Village. Bus stop into Vail Village is right out the front door. Execellant accomodations, great bar area for apres or a late night drink. Cons, $35 a day resort fee, no free wi-fi and very expensive breakfast options. We went to the Little Diner for breakfast at more than half the price. Overall, a full amenity hotel at a great price!

The room did not have a balcony, which was what we booked on Expedia. Condition of room was nice but a bit worn in. Could not access the free wireless internet. Older 1970's style lamps. No charging ports for iPhones etc. had a much better stay recently at a Hampton Inn.

Rude Staff

2 out of 5
Posted Aug 26, 2016
Pros: Location
Cons: Training of front desk staff
Location: Very good location, right in downtown Vail.
Staff was incredibly rude and aloof. My wife and I were told that we could get next day laundry service for a pair of white jeans that had gotten a hot chocolate stain on them, even though the jeans would have been ready on a Sunday. We were told that the jeans would be ready by 10am on Sunday. We were checking out on Monday, so we figured that we would have plenty of time for the jeans to be dry-cleaned, thus removing the noticeable stain. On Sunday we checked with the front desk, and they looked extremely surprised, almost in a patronizing manner when we asked for the jeans. The next morning, we called down to see where the jeans were, and was told that the jeans were not washed, and would not be ready until Tuesday. When we explained to the staff that these jeans were most likely ruined, they simply laughed off the situation.
