Marriott Vail Resort & Spa

Vail, Colorado

The hotel

A fabulous mountain resort with excellent ski and spa facilities. European in style, the Vail Marriott exudes charm and personality. Everything’s in walking distance including the gondola to whisk you off to ski runs galore. The hotels Golden Leaf Spa offers a range of treatments – the perfect antidote to an action-packed day on the slopes! There is also fabulous dining in Vail but First Chair Cafe probably does the best buffet breakfast in town - the choice is extensive. Come sundown, Avalanche Pub is an après ski hot spot; soak up the atmosphere awhile before feasting on American fare over at the cosy, laid-back 7one5.

We booked as a nice resort at the end of a family vacation to Colorado it’s veey expensive and has 100 a day resort fee for crowded pool with no chairs and 40 valet fee per day. We were not given that room we reserved and after 1 move got a room with view of air conditioning unit for resort instead of Mountain View. Staff have not been helpful.… Read more

The Resort is convenient to the Vail transporation system and in a great setting with a nice breakfast restaurant, but after years of using this resort when we visit Vail, we've finally given up on it.

The Resort is convenient to the Vail transporation system and in a great setting with a nice breakfast restaurant, but after years of using this resort when we visit Vail, we've finally given up on it. The mandatory so-called "resort fee," for things that we either don't want or would expect for free is up to $50 and it doesn't include the valet parking (the only available convenient option) of $40. (Some nearby hotels have resort fees, but at least include the parking) The "restaurant" available in the evening is only in the bar and is pretty pathetic- the menu seems to have gotten smaller and more restricted with each passing year and the "live music" this last weekend was so bad that we sat as far away as we could to minimize the noise. That "restaurant" is so understaffed on the weekend that we gave up waiting to place a drink order and just did it ourselves at the bar. The "coffee" machines in the rooms are very tricky to use and, as near as we can tell, it is impossible to just get hot water for tea. The rooms are nice and reasonably priced, until the $90 fees are tacked on. We hope this resort returns to its previous levels of performance.+ Read less

we were ready to pay a premium for a 4th of July experience at this Marriott resort. The location is great, the service is below average for the price point. I recognize that were were there for the busy weekend, but the hotel didn't seem to staff adequately to prepare for it - the water was always gone, the room cleaning was very late and not available for one of the days. The luggage carts are not available to take for self service, yet be ready to wait for 30 min for your luggage to be delivered. Hikes and Vail location has compensated for what was a disappointing hotel experience. Valet $40, but you can also park for $25 at a parking structure 10 min away. Read less

Just checked in for a 1 day overnight staycation. Originally booked a 2 bedroom suite to accommodate our family but was pleasantly surprised with a status upgrade to the 3 bedroom penthouse. Omg. This room is fantastic. Yes, I realize the upgrade was due to availability in the off season but it's always nice to have status recognized. The hotel… Read more

This room is fantastic. Yes, I realize the upgrade was due to availability in the off season but it's always nice to have status recognized. The hotel and staff from valet, bell desk, front desk has been great. The free sample IPAs at the front desk is also a big plus in my book. Thanks @marriottbonvoy you get a bad rap sometimes but you came through today Read less

We stayed in a newly renovated room on the 5th floor with a balcony overlooking the river. Bravo Marriott. Very well done! This continues to be my favorite “staycation” in all of the US during the summer. I can’t get enough of the beautiful Lionshead Village - the stunning buildings, the crisp mountain air, the cascading flowers, the live music and the delicious food. All just outside the doors of the wonderful Marriott. And Vail village is just a 10 minute walk along the river with tons of shopping and dining options. I could stay here all summer. Read less
