U.S. News Review

Sitting on the western edge of Vail, The Arrabelle at Vail Square takes a different approach to ski lodging. Instead of forest-inspired colors with antler wall hangings, this member of the RockResort family boasts a European ambiance, complete with cast-iron chandeliers and heavy marble columns. Still, some hints of a traditionally rustic atmosphere remain: Guests love the cozy throw blankets and fireplaces found in each room, while private balconies provide spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. When you're not on the slopes, indulge in a spa treatment, soak in the rooftop hot tub or enjoy a cocktail on the après-ski deck as you look out over Vail Square. When dinnertime rolls around, previous visitors highly recommend reserving a table at Tavern on the Square, saying that the homestyle comfort cuisine hits the spot after a long, snowy day.

Critic Reviews


“Rooms at the hotel are spacious ... and romantic, featuring fireplaces and a lavish floor-to-ceiling drapery canopy over the bed.”


“The apres-ski scene is thriving here, with a spacious outdoor patio and cozy tavern for snacks, cocktails, and full meals. The rooftop pool offers another scenic spot to relax, while the 10,000-square-foot spa complex has a long list of eco-conscious treatments.”

Condé Nast Traveler

“Inspired by Europe's grand Alpine resorts, this ski-in/ski-out property is steps from the Eagle Bahn Gondola in Lionshead.”


“The charm is in the details: working wood shutters, copper drainspouts, and subtle fairy-tale stenciling around the Bavarian Biedermeier-style architecture. The lobby's windows are Czech, no less”
