My boyfriend and I stayed here during a long weekend in Vail with some of his family (who stayed at a different property) in July, 2011.
Our reception at the front desk was welcoming and professional and the room was well-kept, well-furnished and very comfortable! We had a view of the courtyard, but the small walk-out balcony was so conducive to enjoying the fresh, summertime mountain air - a really nice feature of the room.
We took advantage of the path into Vail Village - a lovely walk in the summer. The bar area, although small, served us great drinks and as another reviewer commented, the outside pool area provides plenty of other places to relax. We had breakfast at the hotel restaurant twice while there - there was a very good buffet selection and tasty enough, for a buffet. There was a mix up during one of our breakfasts - we were told to sit where we wanted and were sort of "forgotten about" for 10 - 15 minutes. It wasn't busy, so we finally asked a waitress, who apologized and then took our drink orders, directed us to the buffet, etc. This incident was not so terrible to take away from the full excellent rating - it was simply a mistake on their part.
The shuttle from the hotel to Vail Village was very efficient and timely - we took advantage of it to meet up with family for shopping and dinner on several different occasions. Overall, I would definitely stay here again.
