We were in Vail for the GoPro games and only one night at The Sebastian. It was wonderful. This is a beautiful property. Well taken care of with a professional staff eager to help and please.

After looking for accommodation in Vail we settled on the Sebastian. The Sebastian is not on the slopes but does have a ski centre next to the slopes which was the selling point to us. We are not from the USA and have slight accents. Our stay was for 5 nights with the intent to skiing for the entire trip....

The rooms are beautiful. We went there for a last minute get away at closing day at Vail. We never ended up skiing, and enjoyed a wonderful stay swimming in the pool, and relaxing in the hot tub. iGreat service, and just a beautiful hotel right un the center of all that is happening (but, quiet) :)

My wife and I went to vail for a spur of the moment get away. We called the Sebastian and spoke to Abel. He secured us a room on the phone and when we pulled up the valet said we were expecting you.

We loved the atmosphere of the property but the location is perfect to get anywhere in Vail easily. Definitely going to try and stay here on our return trips! There are so many restaurants less than a minute walk it was a great for us to explore all of them.

Great location and even better service. Tha staff is amazing and they make your stay memorable. The Frost Bar in the main lobby is a great place to meet friends and has a great atmosphere, together with the 2 restaurants you hardly have to go out for meals.
