Part grand American lodge, part iconic European ski village, the hotel is a stately structure that combines stonework with exposed timbers and steep rooflines. Interiors, designed by Brayton Hughes, are the epitome of rustic elegance. Masculine touches of leather, stone, ironwork and stained wood mix with stylish floral carpets and saturated colors that reflect the mountain landscape. Look for hints of skis in the architectural details.
Bed and Bath
The generous (575-square-foot) rooms stick to classic neutrals to place the focus on the views. Soft colors mix with hickory woodwork and leather chairs, ottomans and headboards. All the of 120 rooms come equipped with stone fireplaces and terraces, distinguished mainly by the views, which vary from mountain to village to garden. The bathrooms pamper with deep soaking tubs, L’Occitane products and robes and slippers.
The hotel offers a to-do list of interesting activities that range from meat smoking classes to barrel-aged cocktail making. At the spa, guests linger fireside or outdoors in the relaxation garden before and after treatments such as the altitude adjustment massage that helps guests acclimate to the 8,150-foot elevation. Fireside is a laid-back lounge for après ski with live music and cocktails like the Angry Ginger with peat-smoked bourbon. At Flame you can choose a house specialty rub for your dry aged Bison rib eye and pair it with must-try duck fat fries.
In the Area
Vail Village is the gateway to the largest ski mountain in the United States and a system of trails for summer and winter mountain pursuits. Ride the Eagle Bahn gondola to Adventure Ridge to hike classic trails like Berry Picker. After a snowstorm, skiers and riders flock to Vail’s Back Bowls, a seven-mile-wide swath of wide-open, mostly un-groomed terrain. In the village, ice skating at Solaris Plaza or bowling at the swanky Bol Vail can be followed by dinner at Matsuisha or Sweet Basil.
How to Get There
Everyone at Four Seasons was so kind and helpful. They checked in with us often to see if we needed anything and when we did they were quick to get it to us. We really appreciated their car service that took us anywhere in the town and picked us up when we were done. Our room was huge and the deep soaking tub was awesome. They brought us fudge cookies and champagne for our anniversary which was really nice. Their hot apple cider in the lobby was delicious! We stayed on a Sunday - Tuesday and were slightly disappointed to miss out on the s’mores by their fire that they said they only do on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s when it’s off season and we also missed out on the flame restaurant which was only open Thursday - Saturday when we were there. We still had a great experience!
5 starts all the way around. Rooms, view, food, staff are all on their "A" game for your entire stay! We had breakfast the morning we left and it was honestly one of the best tasting breakfasts I've every had. Concierge folks went above and beyond!
Still the best hotel I have every stayed at when considering all off the critical elements. Phenomenal location, great staff and facilities. Really enjoyed the bar at night time with the gas fires. Spa is the best I have ever experienced.
