Location counts in Vail, and when it comes to prime slopeside real estate, Manor Vail Lodge’s spot by the covered bridge at the Golden Peak base area rules the roost. Fully renovated in 2008, the look is Colorado contemporary with a wink to the Old West; think vintage wooden skis above stone-facade fireplaces, leather rocking chairs and flat-screen TVs.
Bed & Bath
We dig the variety of accommodations on offer here, from couples-friendly studios to large two-bedroom condos with pull-out couches that can sleep up to eight and come with the services of an on-site family activities coordinator. Note that condo units here are privately owned, which means the design changes from one to the next; some owners have better taste than others. But they all feature full kitchens, cozy living areas and balconies with endless mountain views.
After a day playing in the great outdoors, enjoy a revitalizing treatment at the in-house spa or do DIY relaxation in one of the four hot tubs or two heated pools. You can also unwind over breathtaking views and happy hour cocktails at The Fitz, the in-house lounge.
In the Area
With your prime slopeside location, you’re well situated for outdoor bliss all year round. With runs designed especially for intermediate skiers and boarders, Blue Sky Basin is a slightly easier introduction to deep powder and back bowl riding and can be accessed via the Riva Bahn. Cross-country skiers can get their fix at the Cordillera Nordic Center, 15 miles west of Vail in Edwards. Hiking, horseback riding, fly fishing and golf are big summer sports and can be arranged through Manor Vail’s concierge. At night, kick back with the locals at Bart & Yeti’s, a divey spot with Vail’s best burgers. In the winter, ride the lifts at Vail and ski the heart-pounding three mile off-resort run that plummets almost 3,100 feet ending up at the 1901 Minturn Saloon, a kitschy après spot for fireside roadhouse and Mexican fare.
How to Get There
It was a great experience. Excellent hotel, good location, good service but the best was the people. They look always happy and ready to serve you. Thank you for your attentions. I hope to see you again soon
The grounds are amazing and the room was a 1 bedroom accommodation. Food was very good and gluten free options were available with the exception of desserts. However, I had a room with afternoon sun and there was no air conditioning. 77 degrees is too hot for sleeping even with the windows open. If you are not a tempurpedic mattress person, this is not for you. Service quality was exceptional.
We have been to this hotel a couple times and love it! Great location to walk to downtown Vail but you also feel like you are out in nature. Perfect combination! The breakfast buffet offered so many wonderful and fresh options! We will be back for sure!
We just checked out having visited Manor Vail for our 10 + years.. Were coming back for a Wedding July 5. Then our big 8 day visit in August. Its our Home away from home during the summer. We loved the Condo, The breakfasts, The view, and the location away from the village. Its an easy 2-3 block scenic stroll to the village and restaurant's. Took our kids and Grandkids this time. We all had a blast. And we`ll be back in 3 short weeks.
I’d really like to give the Manor Vail Lodge a higher rating but I just can’t. Yes, we had a nice one bedroom room that was modern and clean but the construction noise cancelled it all out. When we made the reservation the hotel called me and asked my preference of room — river view or mountain view. I said I didn’t mind as long as it was quiet. When we checked in the front desk ask a similar question and my answer was the same, “Something quiet”. The person at the front desk then looked at the computer and said there was a really nice unit with a mountain view. It sounded great and was great until the following morning when the construction noise began. And not only was the noise from the unit next door but also from the unit above us. Come on! Of all of the units to put a client in we were placed in one with active construction above and next door from 8:00AM-5:00/6:00PM. Ridiculous. So much for my request of quiet being heard.
