Accommodation in Vail


Given that Vail Ski Resort is a purpose-built facility, there is no shortage of diverse lodging options both in the resort and in the town of the same name grown up around the original complex. Many hotels here are upscale and expensive, with several ‘resorts within a resort’ being the most luxurious, offering everything from suites through to spas, fitness centres, swimming pools, outdoor hot tubs, saunas, fine dining and nightlife, all set in close proximity to the chair lifts.

Several tour operators including a British Airways subsidiary and SkiWorld run all- inclusive packages to Vail, with options such as lift passes, car hire, full or part-board, ski lessons, transfers and on-site representative; a useful service for those unfamiliar with the resort. Accommodation is in a selection of hotels, lodges, apartments and inns.

Another, more economic, option is to rent one of the many privately-owned condos and self-cater or eat out in one of the 20 mountainside eateries or the even larger number of restaurants in the base village or Vail town. The lowest room rates run from the beginning of the season up to 20 December, with peak season and holiday dates such as New Year and the US Spring Break seeing top prices across the board.
