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.

Here for work and very pleased with our room, the customer service, and the meeting rooms. Always love a Marriott as you know you are going to get great service and FANTASTIC pillows. Our meals were all catered and the staff was friendly and attentive. Our reception was well stocked with food and drink and, again, very pleasant servers/bartenders. We did manage to run into town for a bit and do some shopping, but that is another review. Would love to stay here again. Spendy, but a great venue. Read less

We stayed 2 nights. Hotel is ok but not the best I have experienced. Most interesting is the $50 resort fee plus $60 for valet parking.

We stayed 2 nights. Hotel is ok but not the best I have experienced. Most interesting is the $50 resort fee plus $60 for valet parking. I understand the resort fee concept, however, if you advertise the resort fee and provide a detailed list of everything included then you should actually have it available. During our stay, no beer sample available as it was out. No whiskey samples. Hot chocolate depleted before end of time period. No live music during stay. No mention of how to access electronic newspapers. Also, there was a separate charge for morning coffee. They should add morning coffee as part of resort fee and drop the afternoon hot chocolate. We stayed at St. Regis in Aspen and complimentary coffee was available each morning. Read less

We booked this Marriott because we are Marriott Bonavoy members, it was advertising great late season rates and it had a very good location.

We booked this Marriott because we are Marriott Bonavoy members, it was advertising great late season rates and it had a very good location. It is in the Lionshead area of Vail, not as centrally located as some other hotels but a short 2 minute walk to a gondola. The hotel is large and modern and quite well appointed but not a Ritz Carlton or Four Seasons. Rooms are very nice with great beds. Our Deluxe King Mountain View room had a kitchenette area with fridge, sink and coffee maker. There was a gas fireplace, a huge TV with free access to HBO Go as well as several other cable options. The sitting are was small but there was a balcony with chairs and a Mountain View. Prices for valet parking are quite high but it is Vail so everywhere that is the case. Room service is good, housekeeping acceptable, and the use of a hotel shuttle makes getting around easy if you don’t have a car. They do not have a ski valet service but you can valet your skiis at the Lionshead Gondola and the walk is short. The bathroom is spacious with separate tub and shower but only a single sink. Definitely a very nice stay and much in line with Marriott quality. Read less
