Fodor's Review

The first facility to open in Vail, in 1962, the sprawling lodge—modeled after the Lodge at Sun Valley—is popular with skiers and families because of its fabulous location only 150 feet from the village's main lift, the Gondola One. Ski valets ready your skis every morning and collect your gear for drying in the evening. The quality and size of the rooms varies tremendously. The older wing has smaller, individually decorated rooms with a homey feel, while the newer

wing has larger suites with modern touches like heated marble floors in the bathrooms and gas fireplaces. A 2013 renovation added two new hot tubs and a pool with an outdoor bar and kitchen.

Don´t bet on this one for service, but you will trully appreciate it´s location

We booked a 2 bdr condo. A true dissapointment if you are paying $750 plus per night: VERY small rooms, low ceiling, etc. Please be carefull, every condo is differently maintained and equipped. This hotel will remain an option based on it´s two strenghths: It´s breakfast and the location. We are not going back. This year we will try the Sonnenalp.

Showing its age

It still has a great location, and great dining options. We recently stayed in one of the "luxury" rooms and it was ok. Bathroom was huge with a mix of marble and wood, if you looked one way it was first class, if you looked the other it was average. Rooms small with low ceilings. I don't mind paying a premium for a nice room , but there is nothing special about these rooms. Skiers buffet excellent.
