Guests say service is excellent
Parking costs not included in daily resort fee
Unlike its sister RockResort properties, The Arrabelle at Vail Square and The Osprey at Beaver Creek, The Lodge at Vail is all about exuding a traditional ski lodge style. Guest rooms feature elegant antique furniture and bright red design accents (as well as marble bathrooms and, in some rooms, kitchenettes), while the common spaces keep to the code with exposed stone walls and large fireplaces. Recent guests note that the customer service here is fantastic, with staff members going above and beyond to make sure you're taken care of. While this hotel definitely won't come out to be one of your cheaper hotel experiences, The Lodge's heated outdoor pool, multiple hot tubs, full-service spa and mouthwatering Cucina Rustica restaurant are worth the extra splurge.

Critic Reviews


One of the Lodge's best assets is its location right in Vail Village, two minutes from the closest ski lift. It's got some great features — an on-site spa, a huge, modern 24-hour fitness center, two outdoor pools and six Jacuzzis — but it is an older building and in need of some updating.
