Great location. Very clean. Kitchen fully equipped. King bed comfy. Plenty of extra linens for pull out bed in den. Spacious den. Delicious Italian deli/bakery/wine/essentials steps away. Lockers for ski equipment. No real view from balcony but excellent light comes into unit. Will definitely stay here again!
We booked this unit for a trip we were taking in late June. The location is in a prime spot in Vail and one would probably not need a car due to this location and the improvements in Vail's bus service. As they say, hindsight is 20/20 and we would not book this location again if we travel in the summer. I will say that if we traveled during the winter then this unit would be very high on our list. Main issues that we had was that the unit was extremely warm. We were on the second floor and opened the windows and doors and ran the fans to cool down, however workers for the restaurant/deli below us (and some tourists as well) would smoke cigarettes outside the back entrance of the restaurant which was right below our unit. Yes there was a sign right there about not smoking but it matter little. Three consecutive nights I had to go outside and ask people not to smoke there, some were nice enough to stop, others not so much. Regardless it was a losing battle and we had to close the doors and windows at night which made the unit much hotter. That was probably the biggest issue. The toaster did not work at all and though there were DVD players they were not connected, nor were there cables to connect them. I called the property management firm three times about all of this. Spoke to a live person once (about a missing cushion and the smoking) and the other two times about the toaster and DVD players. The other two times I left messages on the answering machine but would hear some sort of greeting of how my message failed to save/record. By that time we only had a day or two left so we were just dealing with all of this.
I cannot state how good of a location this unit was in. You could walk almost everywhere and if you didn't want to walk, the buses were there as well. The ability to use the pool, hot tub and fitness facility at the hotel next door was great and the parking garage was extremely convenient. I can imagine going back up there to ski in the winter but would really need to reconsider another stay during the summer especially at this price point.
