My husband and I recently spent 4 nights at the Four Seasons Vail. We are very loyal to the brand and were hoping for the best, but left feeling somewhat disappointed.
Decor: Layout is a bit odd, and it feels more corporate than mountain rustic.
Food: Not good. Ate only breakfast at the hotel, but roomservice waffle and huevor rancheros were both not good. The next morning we ate at the restaurant, Flame, where the waffle guy pulled the waffle out of the iron with his bare hands. Oh, and we also waited 15 minutes before anyone offered us water, menus, took our order, etc. The third morning we went to the grab and go cafe in the lobby - very limited selection, and not really a full breakfast.
Location: It's definitely a walk, albeit a pleasant one. I'd say 10-15 minutes. The ski concierge is really nice and they do try to do everything possible to make it easier for you, but there's no denying this is not ski in/ski out and you lose a lot of the conveniences that come with that.
Room: Comfortable bed, nice bathroom, kind of sterile decor. Not cozy/mountain chic/etc.
Spa: Lovely - great massages, lovely waiting room, beautiful cold/warm pools for each sex
Mostly, for the price and given the brand, we expected more. The lack of a mountain-y decor and the very lackluster food, combined with the disappointing location just made for a sort of "meh" stay.
FYI, we had some amazing meals elsewhere - Sweet Basil, Kelly Liken, Game Creek Lodge, and The Left Bank
