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.

Staff was very nice and helpful. Good location, close walk to the chairlift. Ski valet was very much appreciated. Rooms are well set up for winter activities with plenty of hooks to dry up winter cloths. Good effort to become a greener hotel. Loved the smoores & hot chocolate bar! Although a bit pricey, breakfasts were delicious.

Great location for a conference. Walking to the lift was very convenient. Room was clean and service great. Forgot to restock coffee once and made up for it the next day. Only drawback was that the adult hot tub wasn’t hot

I had the chance to visit Vail with some friends this winter and it was terrific. The snow was great, but the hotel really blew me away. The staff at the front desk was courteous and really kicked things off for us (They gave us some beer, so that was a big plus!) The common areas are vast and warm, nice to relax in the library while waiting for the others in my group. The ski rental shop was right there in the building and offered a valet service which made it super convenient every morning. We had breakfast in the restaurant, it was a lot of food which was nice before a day on the mountain. In the evening we would spend some time watching basketball in the pub. Great staff, they recalled my drink choices every day and made great suggestions making the food menu fun. The room was spectacular. It looked to be recently updated with a breathtaking view of the mountain. We had a patio on the 5th floor so we took some time to sit outside with coffee and take it in. We took advantage of the take down service, the housekeeping staff was very accommodating and did a great job cleaning up and restocking the coffee. What else... oh.. the hot tub. There is a hot tub and pool on the main level, this is a family friendly area and they have smores to make on the fire in the afternoon. There is another hot tub down stairs by the fitness center that is somewhat of a secret, great jets and great conversation with the other guests. There were whisky tastings in the afternoon, from 10th Mountain (I liked the Rye). All in all The resort and the staff knocked my socks off! 10/10 will stay there again! Read less

It's still well located, comfortable, but not so much, and run by professional, polite and friendly people, but gone is the Western charm, in favor of a colder and more corporate look. The comfy seating in the bar and adjacent area is gone, so if you need a refuge from a sleeping room mate you can't lounge on a sofa and watch Netflix, but must sit… Read more
It's still well located, comfortable, but not so much, and run by professional, polite and friendly people, but gone is the Western charm, in favor of a colder and more corporate look. The comfy seating in the bar and adjacent area is gone, so if you need a refuge from a sleeping room mate you can't lounge on a sofa and watch Netflix, but must sit upright in a hard chair jammed in front of a table. The wifi reception is pretty awful - I tried 3 or more options various in room and lobby, and more so if that's what the $50 "resort fee' is supposed to include. The coffee and food options at the window adjacent to the restaurant is all overpriced and unappealing including the offerings in the fries, but the alternative is a $27.00 omelette - I don't know what they're paying the chickens, but this is hardly a remote ski locations requiring everything be hauled up a snowy mountain top. The cowboy hats and cloaks are gone from the doormen and so has the charm of this otherwise solid hotel. Read less

Marriott Vail is improved but watch for hidden fees ($60 parking per day plus tips and $50 resort fee per day). The renovations to the rooms are well done especially the showers. Vail Sports handles the ski valet.
