Vail resorts provide visitors to one of America's great ski destinations with some very tantalizing lodging options. For starters, you can find these resorts right at the bottom of a world-class ski mountain. It also doesn't hurt that they provide close proximity to some great shops, restaurants, and bars. Add in the facilities and overall comfort that the Vail ski resort provides, and it's not hard to understand why they have little trouble filling their rooms.
Being that Vail is an upscale ski resort, the Vail resorts maintain high levels of service and comfort on the whole. This is certainly the case with the Arrabelle at Vail, which is considered to be the centerpiece of the revamped Vail Square area. Guests can book a luxurious room or suite at the Arrabelle or opt to rent one of the numerous condo units. In the rooms and suites, fireplaces and private balconies are among the inviting amenities, and as you might expect at a high-class resort, an upscale spa figures among the Arrabelle facilities. Other facilities that guests can enjoy when they aren't on the mountain include a fitness center, a bistro, a pub, and a rooftop lap pool.
When staying at a luxurious resort is what you have in mind for your Vail vacation, another gem that should not be overlooked is the Vail Cascade Resort & Spa (pictured). As is true of many Vail lodges and resorts, the Vail Cascade offers both hotel guest units and condos, and they are all tasteful and well-equipped. Plasma TVs, luxury bedding, and a granite vanity in the bathroom are just some of the standard amenity highlights in the rooms and suites. In the condos here, a full kitchen and private laundry facilities are among the added perks. Facility highlights at the Vail Cascade Resort & Spa include a 78,000-square-foot health club and spa, a shopping arcade, and two outdoor pools that are heated. It might just be the true ski-in, ski-out access that seals the deal for some, however. Not many Vail hotels can provide such convenience.
Situated just 150 yards from the Eagle Bahn Gondola in Lionshead Village is the Vail Marriott Mountain Resort & Spa. Guests at this delightful lodging establishment will basically be in the heart of it all. The Vail Village core can easily be explored on foot, and the walk to the gondola shouldn't take more than just a few minutes. It's good to know that everything is close by, and it only means that you can spend a little extra time enjoying the comfort of your room or condo. The amenities at this upscale Vail resort are splendid and the facilities complete, so there will be plenty to do when you have down time to fill.
Should these Vail resorts be fully booked when you go to secure accommodations for your visit, worry not, as there are others that offer similar experiences. Among them are the Sonnenalp Resort and the Four Seasons Resort Vail. You can also check to see if the Vail lodges have any vacancies, as most of these lodging establishments are basically resorts with a different tag. Among the best in town are the Tivoli Lodge and the Lion Square Lodge.
One of Vail's sister resorts, the Beaver Creek Resort, is just twelve miles away, and it offers more great lodging options for Vail Valley visitors to consider. In fact, the Beaver Creek area is home to what might just be the best ski resort in the entire state of Colorado. This resort is the renowned Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch.
