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.

I just returned from a stay at The Hythe and was very impressed. The hotel is beautiful and the staff is very friendly. The room had gorgeous furnishings and a nice Nespresso machine and even a bedside humidifier. Some of the amenities and restaurants were not yet up and running due to the remodel in in progress; however, gift card to spa was provided as well as a free drink token. While I did not use either of these it was a nice touch. There is no onsite parking but the valets were incredibly responsive and available at all hours. There is also a bus route that stops at the property and takes guests into the Village. I would definitely stay again. Read less

This is a beautiful hotel with horrible customer service. You will pay for five stars ($60 per day valet with no self-parking option for starters) and receive a Motel 6 experience. The shuttle only runs when it’s convenient for them. This morning it wasn’t available because staff couldn’t find the keys. Shuttle was sitting there empty but no one… Read more
This is a beautiful hotel with horrible customer service. You will pay for five stars ($60 per day valet with no self-parking option for starters) and receive a Motel 6 experience. The shuttle only runs when it’s convenient for them. This morning it wasn’t available because staff couldn’t find the keys. Shuttle was sitting there empty but no one had keys. Another day when we called to request a shuttle the front desk hung up on us twice. Housekeeping only comes every few days even when requested. After two days of no housekeeping we called to ask for fresh towels. Had to call twice, took two hours, and the “fresh” towels were just thrown on the floor outside our door. We were in our room the entire time and no one even knocked. Maybe you could claim COVID, except the day before housekeeping knocked on our door, barged in our room saying they needed to make a phone call, then rushed right out again (still didn’t clean our room). We had breakfast included but the main restaurant is closed. So only grab and go with a ridiculous line every morning. By 8:30 most of the selection was gone, when we inquired about this at the front desk we were told “the early bird gets the worm”. We expect Vail to be expensive. It is Vail after all. But we expect some basic level of service to accompany these prices. We also understand that hotels are understaffed, but at these costs Marriott should not sell more rooms than they are able to reasonably accommodate. This experience was beyond dismal, and we will never return again. I advise you to spend your money somewhere else. Read less

This resort recently changed name and ownership. Poorly trained staff have no idea how to work the new computer systems and for over a week now charges are on my back account that they don't know how to fix to reimburse me. Avoid like the plague.
