What We Love

  • The heated outdoor pool has four hot tubs and a waterfall feature
  • The full-service Bloom Spa is a worthy addition to the Vail spa scene
  • Guests can make use of the personalized concierge, on-mountain ski service and two Chevy Suburbans for trips outside the village
  • The fitness center is quite large
  • Very pet-friendly; a plush dog bed and gourmet treats are offered for Fido

What To Know

  • The in-the-heart-of-things location means that there can be some noise and crowds right outside the hotel
  • During ski season, target off-peak weeks like late February and early April (when the skiing can still be great)
  • Although perhaps best-known for skiing, Vail is a four-season city, with lots of events and activities year-round
  • Valet parking is available for $30 per day during the winter season (Nov 21 – April 20) and $25 per day during the summer season (April 21 – Nov 20).
  • Paying a little more to fly into Eagle County Regional Airport (43 miles west of Vail) can spare you the long drive from Denver (120 miles over two high mountain passes)
  • A $30 resort fee per room (so two-bedroom units incur a $60 fee), per night will be collected at the Jetsetter checkout

Great place to stay in great location!

Cozy boutique hotel in the middle of the village with great concierge service. Steer clear of the restraunt inside is my only suggestion. Food is decent but service is nonexistent. Is not congruent at all with the rest of the hotel where the service is outstanding!

Decent Hotel but Was Disappointed with the Room's View
Reviewed 4 days ago

The location of this hotel was great, right in the midst of Vail Village. The room was clean and the staff was quite friendly. I will however say I was very disappointed with my room's view. When staying in Vail, CO you think of beautiful mountain views and crisp blue skies. I was here on business and unfortunately spent most of time indoors in a conference room. When waking up I would have loved to have looked out my window to see a mountain but at the very least the sky. Instead I had the very drap view of the hotel's lobby. Not only was this view terrible, it was quite noisy during the morning and late-night hours when people were in the lobby.

So Welcoming!!

The staff is all smiles and so kind! The property is beautiful and the rooms are so comfortable, the exec suites are the way to go. This stay was a quick one but I love being welcomed to The Sebastian!!

Memorable experience

Elegant facility, friendly staff, good location. We can not be happier. At the last day of our stay, a major snow storm interrupted our travel plan. The manager extended our stay with a short notice and reduced rate.

Incredible Service!

My wife and I stayed at the Sebastian for a ski trip: her first to Vail, and my first time back in many years. We stayed mid-week in a one bedroom condo, and, due to road closures, ski traffic was light, so the mountain was fairly open. The Sebastian's staff was excellent, giving us all the attention we needed to help us get settled when we arrived and to work with us when the freeway closed and we were delayed in leaving for home.

The condo was very well equipped, with a nicely appointed kitchen, a roomy bedroom, and a wonderful balcony looking up at the ski hill. Only complaints - the gas fireplace didn't work, and there wasn't enough light in the kitchen. We really enjoyed having the in-floor heat in the bathroom.

The staff was amazing. Very friendly on check-in, housekeeping stopped by to offer turn-down service and deliver some fresh cookies. When my wife forgot her ski goggles in the condo, staff went up to the condo and retrieved them and brought them to us at the Sebastian's Base Camp, their 'club' at the base of gondola one. Loved Base Camp as well. It's not that long a walk from the Sebastian to the lifts, but in ski boots and carrying your gear, it would be. Base Camp is their valet service that stores your gear and allows you to walk (or the Sebastian will give you a lift if you're feeling really lazy) right to the base of the gondola, put your gear on and head right up the lift.

Overall a great experience!
