We very much enjoyed our recent stay at the Vail Cascade. It is located about a mile away from Lionshead and 1.5 miles from Vail Village so it is a little quieter and situated in a nice natural setting. There is a very convenient free shuttle that comes about every 10-15 min so a car is not needed. Most of the resorts seem to have a free shuttle. One of the favorite parts of our stay was a walk along Gore Creek just behind the hotel. There is a path that takes you to both Lionshead and Vail Village with lots of scenic photo opportunities.
The room was clean and comfortable. No issues at all. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We got engaged and they upgraded our room. The ski concierge was a very nice feature. Store skis and boots there next to their own lift for free. You can ski back to the resort from the main mountain but not if you are a beginner as the "Simba" run is blue and somewhat steep in places. You'll have to shuttle back in that case which is only a short ride.
The breakfast buffet was delicious every morning. It's a bit pricy for big family at 24$ for adults but hey, it's Vail. The lounge has great munches and pizza in the evening. We did not try dinner in their restaurant but the menu looked good. There is also a little store/deli with everything you need.
The pool area was quite nice with a couple of fire pits and rockers. The pool itself was not quite warm enough for our liking but was nice. There was only one outdoor hot tub which remained crowded after ski time. There is an indoor one also
in the spa but we did not see it.
Overall we really enjoyed the hotel and would stay there again based on quality, convenience, and price.
