We are frequent travelers to Vail but this was our first time staying at the Four Seasons. The hotel is HUGE with a somewhat confusing layout of rooms and seemingly miles of spacious corridors. Our room was very large by Vail standards - entrance "hall" with walk-in closet, large bedroom with fireplace and balcony with mountain views, big bathroom with double sinks, private toilet, nice shower, and an oddly placed free-standing bathtub (like you see in the Cialis ads). The room was very quiet and the bed very comfortable. Decor (as mentioned by other reviewers) is a little "sterile/corporate" compared to other hotel properties there - but Vail tends to overdo the the whole Alpine/Tyrolean thing as a rule.
We only ate breakfast at the restaurant. Service was a little hit or miss and the prices were a little steep - really? $6 for a glass of milk? On the other hand the waffles were awesome and the Bananas Foster-themed French toast was fabulous.
I don't mind a short walk to and from the ski hill as long as I don't have to wear my ski boots. The ski concierge service was really one of the best features! Lockers are roomy and have built-in dryers for boots/gloves. The attendants ask if you need assistance with putting on/taking off your boots. You can ski right up to the rack where you drop off your skis at the end of the day. Espresso machine/ fresh cookies & muffins/bottled water are available gratis and the ski rental shop is right downstairs - accessible by elevator.
We had super warm sunny weather last week (March 21-25) so there were lots of people using the outdoor pool/hottub area. It looks like a fabulous spot but we did not avail ourselves of the pool or spa facilities.
All in all, I would stay there again if the price was right. It pays to shop around.
