My husband and I stayed at Vail Cascade during the 2014 ski season. We were very much impressed with everything about the resort. The location and ability to ski-in and ski-out right from the lodge was priceless. Not only was it convenient, but it was like have a little section of the mountain all to ourselves when we finished up...

I was excited to spend a long weekend at the resort, having been to the valley many times to visit family, this was the first I was actually staying in a hotel (wedding purposes.)

First, do NOT rent a car in Denver to drive to Vail. Make a reservation with the Colorado Mountain Express.

Top items in the resort: Wide variety of meeting rooms, walking/biking trail out the back door, superb gym facilities, close to restaurants at nearby ski resort. For winter visits, there is access to a lift at the east end of the building-very convenient Management has updated an older property and seems to maintain it well.
