Vail has so many hotels. The often seem to change names, new ones are built, old ones torn down. It's hard to keep tabs on them all. Most of them are close to the mountain, but very few are ski-in, ski-out, which means that you can walk out the door, put on your skis and go. This is somewhat inconvenient, but it makes people have to walk through the shopping and restaurant areas. Hotels are expensive here, with few exceptions.
Not wanting to spend over $150 I pulled off on a road stop less than 40 miles out of town. With my zero bag a I was able to catch a nap in the back of the car. It was cold but not $150 cold. The only time I thought I may die was when I had to get out of my sleeping bag to start the car. A easy way to save some cash to pay for those $80 lift tickets.
Plush hotel located about 20-25 minutes away from the main town of Vail. It's nicely secluded and has it's own ski area if you go for the skiing. Everyone working at the hotel will greet you, ask if you are enjoying your stay and if you need anything. The rooms are comfortable - very plush beds, huge bathroom with bath and seperate shower. Thick terry robes and towels. Beds are turned down in the evening for you with little chocolates placed on the bed. They have a fabulous spa! Two outdoor jaccuzzi's. An outdoor firepit that is lit in the evening and you can burn up some marshmellows with Adirondack chairs to relax on. The pool area can get pretty packed with people on the warm, sunny days outside. The restaurant located in the hotel, Remington's, is very elegant with a great selection of dishes that include Bison and Elk.
The rustic ambiance is very comfortable and relaxing. You feel like you are never in a hurry to do anything.
OK, I would recommend this rental house to a big group, as long as they are aware that the home is not particularly clean and not especially safe. The dust is several inches thick above the eye level and the home is jam-packed with knick knacks. Maybe this is perfect as a bachelor pad or a hangout for guy-golfers.
Tennis courts next door, great hot tub on outside deck, pool table in downstairs, nice gated community.
There are plenty of places to stay in Vail, but I recommend the Vail Lodge. An outstanding hotel right at the base of the mountain, this place has every aminenty the traveler could ask for. And, since it is in the village, you are walking distance to every shop, bar and restaurant Vail has to offer.
