Fodor's Expert Review The Sebastian

16 Vail Rd., Vail, Colorado, 81657, USA Fodor's Choice

Manhattan chic meets Colorado ski lodge at this boutique hotel where you will find the work of Mexican abstract artist Manuel Felguérez throughout, and the lively Lounge at Leonora with its craft cocktails and street-fare–style bites. Rooms are sleek, contemporary, and artsy. Enjoy free in-room snacks, fruit, and beverages—not that you'll spend much time in your room once you discover the heated outdoor pool and rooftop hot tubs with mountain views. Slope-side, there's the Sebastian Basecamp, a ski concierge at the Gondola One lift where you can grab your gear and hot coffee; in summer, pick up your bike. Leonora restaurant has a large wine selection and serves stellar food.
