4 out of 5

Hotel was very conveniently located.

Pros: The staff including the receptionist, concierge, car parkers and the restaurant staff in Cucina were all exceptional.
Cons: Our room was stuffy, not air conditioned.The first night sleeping was uncomfortable. They installed a portable AC unit the next day.
Location: We were close to lots of good restaurants, the ski museum and walking paths along Gore Creek.
Our room was fine and the hotel grounds were fine. The hotel was in a super location. We ate breakfast at Cucina everyday. We found the menu to be very creative and different. The food and wait staff were great. The service in the hotel was above and beyond.

Oldest Hotel in Vail, and it Shows.

Pros: If you want to explore Vail Village, the location is decent.
Location: Shopping, skiing, hiking, fishing.
Was in Vail for a conference, unfortunately the main hotel was full and the Lodge was one of the alternate locations. I choose it over a well known chain. I knew that it was older and in the mountains but I didn't expect the room I got. I ended up on a 1st floor room in the interior courtyard with a view of nothing more than the pool. There was no air conditioning in the room and since it was on the interior courtyard, no breeze. Since it was also on the first floor with no separation from the pool you choices were to either leave your windows open with a fan on and hope nothing was stolen, or close your windows and return in the evening to a hot box. Also, if happened to be in your room before 10 pm, you had the pleasure of listening to everyone in the pool. Also, all parking is Valet and since the shuttle service was sporadic, I was forced to drive the 3 miles to the other resort. That would have been ok since the other resort had parking, but I had several occasions when it took almost 20 minutes for someone to retrieve my car, or even just give me my keys.

Would I recommend? Yes for location, No if you have certain expectations.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
Cons: housekeeping
This hotel is in a great location and the first few days went very well, but service went downhill after that. The room decor could be nicer, but that's a matter of taste/style. The biggest issue with the room is that it has baseboard heat with no thermostat or central air. There is just a knob adjustment that could mean anything between freezing and sweltering. If you turn it up in the morning because the room is too cool you will find it too warm by afternoon. We opened the windows at times to adjust the temp, but it's too cold and too loud to leave them open for long. I marked the bed comfort as only fair because while the bed itself was fine the room was simply too hot to sleep comfortably without waking. Our main issues were service. Housekeeping in particular. Not everyone in our group skis so we purposely plan a time that everyone will be out of the room so that housekeeping can take care of everything and we call to let them know we will be away and would like service. This worked well the first few days, but today we called to request service, letting them know we would be out of the room. We returned 2 hours later and nothing had been done. We called the front desk and they apologized and said it would be taken care of immediately. We returned an hour later and still no housekeeping. I find it difficult to relax among unmade beds and dirty dishes, but that is the current situation. The restaurant (Elways) also has a weird reservation policy that if you have more than 4 people in your party (we have 5) they will only seat you before 6:15 or after 8pm. I'm not sure what they are trying to accomplish but I don't appreciate being told when I can have dinner. It's not easy to get everyone off the mountain, showered and changed for dinner by 6 and 8:30 is too late for those who are tired from skiing all day. The spa is very nice. We had a couple of service issues, but I will give them credit for fixing those problems immediately, unlike other departments of the hotel.

Fantastic location

Couldn't have been better. Highly recommend. Stayed in a Luxury room with balcony and mountain view. Staff was accomodating and friendly. Excellent location for seeing Vail on foot, so never used the car.
