U.S. News Review

Since opening in 2010, the Four Seasons Resort Vail has quickly earned a reputation as one of the city's premier lodging options. And it's easy to see why: The location of this Four Seasons property in central Vail allows easy access to the slopes, while those who opt for a day of rest and relaxation have access to a full-service spa and an outdoor pool. Plus, the resort's in-house restaurant, Flame, offers hearty portions of traditional Colorado cuisine like steak and locally caught fish. Recent visitors describe the guest rooms as breathtaking, praising the stone-trimmed fireplaces and the private balconies found in each accommodation. Be warned that some guests say that the amount of money you have to spend to stay here also takes your breath away; however visitors say that the experience is worth the expense, especially if you're on vacation with someone special. Travelers describe the Four Seasons Resort Vail as a particularly romantic place to stay.

Critic Reviews


“... the swank Four Seasons is the king of village ... The refined restaurant, Flame, is noted to superb service and deftly prepared regional American cuisine.”
Award: Fodor's Choice


“The Four Seasons has all the trappings of a cozy ski chalet — stone and wood accents inside and out, sloping roof eaves, cozy leather furniture — but on a decidedly grand scale.”
