We stayed here during a weekend late in Feb. Most other places in Vail were booked or ridiculously priced. We were happy to find a nice looking place with good to great reviews on tripadvisor. Let me disclose that I don't ski or do many winter sports, was in CO for a convention so thought I'd spend some extra time in the area when work was done. The resort looks nice from the outside, and reasonable on the inside. So I think the pictures that are on the web and on tripadvisor are accurate. The location seems great. There is a resort fee that covers things like gym access and WiFi, so thats a good thing to be aware of. The rooms are reasonable, though we requested a king bed and got a double bed. We had to make due since all of the rooms were booked. Makes sense to call ahead and confirm the online reservation you make doesn't get screwed up. The gym is nice, with very nice locker room facilities (nice showers, sauna, etc). I guess what really soured my opinion of this facility is the absolute lack of sound proofing in the rooms. You can hear subtle things like people sneezing in the halls and adjacent rooms. My hunch is that this is a GREAT place for an avid skier, with a family. Not for someone looking for a high end or boutique experience.
