We stayed 2 nights at the beginning of November at the Vail Cascade. We found it to be lovely. We had a balcony room facing the creek. It was like waking up to a picture postcard every morning. The hidden jacuzzi spa with the fireplace is fabulous. The drivers that took us back and forth to the village could not...

The rooms are a bit outdated and don't compare to other five star hotels in the vicinity (Four Seasons or Ritz). However, the hotel does a fantastic job with service. Five hot tubs are a nice touch so that it's never too crowded. The hotel also hosted s'mores and hot chocolate by the outdoor fire which was a fun added...

This place is gorgeous from the moment you walk in. We loved sitting out by the pool and just relaxing. Our room was very nice and clean and we had a great time with friends. We will certainly return when we are back in Vail.

This is one of our favorite hotels! Always great food and attentive service. Beautiful location and love the creek behind the hotel. We have been going to this property for few times and love it. We've stayed in a variety of room types. We love the rooms on the creekside with balconies. We never been disappointed.

We have been going to this property for years and love it. We've stayed in a variety of room types, including suites and a condo.

Dear TravellingFriend, It is great to hear that you recognize the amenities that Vail Cascade has and that many hotels don’t come close to offering. From the largest and most comprehensive fitness facility in Vail (rated as “Best Luxury Hotel Gym” by Men’s Health magazine) to our spacious rooms and variety of accommodation offerings (hotel rooms, townhomes, condos and homes)...

Really enjoyed the resort, wonderful location by the river; the most enjoyed food at the restaurant, especially smoked pheasant soup was out of this world, all natural ingredients came from local farmers according to Chef.

Dear jburke345, Thank you for your 5-star review! We’re thrilled to hear about your Cascade experience and that you enjoyed Atwater.

While the valet guy was adequate at best, everyone else we met were warm, friendly, and welcoming. Our room was slightly upgraded to a balcony view room and we loved it. The bed, furnishings and room size easily met expectations but while the bathroom was nice (and had two sinks) it was more 3 star hotel looking while the rest...

The hotel rooms are very nice, and the hallways are quiet. The pool is beautiful, it overlooks the creek and is a peaceful setting. The Fireside Bar is a great place to hang out with friends. The bell staff are very helpful with loading and unloading vehicles, which was great for us as we were there for a hockey tournament.
