The location right on the mountain, seconds away from the gondola and village made this a wonderful place for a conference. My particular room was fantastic. Ground floor, facing the mountains, I enjoyed time sitting out on the patio reading a book, listening to the river, watching the gondola, and gazing at the mountain. I would definitely come back. It...

I had a fantastic room on the river. The room was clean and quiet with an option to open my window to listen to the river. It also featured a walk out porch to enjoy the view. The location could not be beat for hiking, walks and access to central Vail via the free shuttle. The staff was friendly and...

Great location in Lionshead, right next to Eagle Bahn Gondola. Free shuttle between villages runs at about 10 minutes intervals. Hotel is clean and well taken care of. Staff is very nice, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Will definitely stay there again.

You can't beat the location of this hotel. It's right next to the gondola. The room was clean and comfortable, although a bit dated. The staff was fantastic. At the end of a long day of skiing, Ryan was waiting at the ski bridge to take our skis to storage. Now that's service! I would definitely stay here again.

This is our 4th time staying at Lion Square Lodge and it just keeps on getting better. The location is the best location in all of Vail with steps away from the gondola and ski school. My family and I just love it here and highly recommend Lion Square Lodge. The staff is truly exceptional and accommodating. Thank you to...

Just returned from a great week at Vail at the Lions Square Lodge. Stayed in a great 2 bedroom condo in the North Tower. For those who don't know Vail, this is in my opinion, the best location in vail. The Gondola is right next to the hotel, and for kids, this is probably the most convenient location because the...

We have stayed at the Lion Square Lodge several times in the past 8 years. After a couple of years skiing in Utah, we decided to go back to Vail, after learning that Lion Square completely gutted and renovated the rooms. We booked early, and we were able to get ground floor room right across from the Gondola. We arrived...

We have been staying at the Lion Square Lodge for 10 years. The location for skiing is outstanding. Having ski rental in the building with great ski valets makes it so easy. I do not normally comment on personnel but the staff here is excellent. They are always friendly and very helpful. The rooms are adequate. They are all similar...

Super awesome things: right by the gondola, friendly- helpful staff (specially the ski valet and luggage & parking guys), beautiful views (if you are facing the mountain), close to Arabelle village, close to ski school and lift tickets, convenience store near by, room-kitchen with new appliances and utensils. Only thing for improvement will be the decor & furniture in the...

The gondola was so close that it was only twenty steps. The rooms and accommodation was definitely five star and all the staff were very helpful. There were people to carry your skis to the gondola. Front desk staff to drive to any local location. There is a great pool and jacuzzi along with a sauna and exercise room and...
