Since debuting in late 2010, the Ritz-Carlton Residences have made Vail’s Lionshead Village the most luxe enclave of this tony resort. The Bavarian-inspired architecture and the soft yellow tones of the exterior create a striking contrast with the mountain. Inside, the 71 residences range in size from a 1,500-square-foot, two-bedroom hideaway to a sprawling five-bedroom, 4,249-square-foot home. All feature gourmet kitchens with granite countertops and Bosch appliances, hickory floors, gas fireplaces, washer/dryers, flat-screen TVs, DVD players and free WiFi.
Bed and Bath
Each of the 71 residences reflects its owner’s personality and style, but rest assured that every alpine-chic inch meets the exceedingly high standards you’d expect from Ritz-Carlton. Standard features include a kingsize bed in every master bedroom; marble master bathrooms with heated floors, soaking tubs and steam showers; and a full bathroom for each bedroom.
The list of services and amenities available to guests is extensive. It starts with your dedicated on-site concierge, who attends to your every whim, from travel logistics to spa treatments to dinner reservations. For après, the private fireside lounge is an exercise in exclusivity, with tasty canapés served alongside craft cocktails, local beers and fine wines. There’s even a teched-out teen lounge with videogames, billiards, foosball and air hockey.
In the Area
If you’re looking for gourmet grub, make the pilgrimage to the village for Kelly Liken, where the eponymous Top Chef finalist cooks up treats such as a potato-crusted Colorado trout. Speaking of fish, the hottest table in town is the sushi spot that bears chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s name. The fish is flown in fresh daily, and a wall of windows provides spectacular views of the slopes. Dinner and a movie? No thanks. How about dinner (and drinks) at the movie? CinéBistro serves excellent food, stiff cocktails and first-run films in three elegant screening rooms. If you’re looking for a bit more action, Bol is bowling Vail-style, complete with flatbread pizzas and craft beers. For a meaty meal check out Elway’s Steakhouse (as in NFL legend John Elway). There’s just enough football memorabilia, and chef Tyler Wiard grills up steaks just right.
How to Get There
Excellent! We arrived for our daughter's birthday weekend and the minute we drove into valet parking we were met promptly and wisked away to our room check in two hours earlier than we had anticipated! Our daughter was met with a fun-fetti birthday cake and balloons left in our 2-bedroom suite while we were at the pool, what a memorable time and staff from our housekeeper to our driver to Vail for dinner to our Front Desk to our Spa hostess were indeed the best of the best! Room 616 was clean and well prepped and the dual fireplaces were most welcome with snow the next morning, cozy and warm were our rooms and the kitchen was top of the line and the view of the Aspen trees amazing! Whirlpool by the pool there were two of them both clean and plenty of plush towels and the spa-sauna was so relaxing and clean, we will be back next year to celebrate again as this will be our family tradition! Thank you to the Ritz Vail for making our stay so spectacular and prom weekend to boot was so much fun!
I can't praise the staff enough, especially the shuttle drivers and dispatcher! They were amazing and incredibly helpful! The concierges were also very helpful and knowledgeable. It is a beautiful property with inviting lounge areas. Our unit was 3 BR 3 BA and had unimpressive furnishings. 2 of the 4 TVs did not work. 1 didn't work at all and the other got 1 channel. There were NO wash cloths/face cloths, which I've never encountered outside of Europe. All in all however, we had a nice stay.
I was able to spend time here while babysitting for a family friend who had rented a residence during the last week of January. All of the staff where beyond amazing at their jobs which made my experience such a delightful dream. One member of the Ritz Carlton family that must be singled out for her excellence is Patrice.....she was so efficient in her housekeeping duties she reminded me of my Jamaican friends on Nantucket at the Union Street Inn (the manager where I work on Nantucket once worked at this very Ritz, how random?!). The conversation I had with Patrice about her and her family and her life here in the U.S. made my day! Blessings to you Patrice, your friend Bethany
The service is outstanding, many people to serve you, from the boots valet to the ski valet. Food is OK, drinks are good and prices for food and drinks are also good.
