The Lodge at Vail Hotel Review: One of Vail's original condo-hotels, this property is still considered among the area's finest. The architecture and interiors have a Bavarian feel, with white stucco walls and dark wood staircases. Out the back door, guests will find the main ski lift. Out the front door is a pedestrian mall loaded with luxury boutiques, restaurants and night life. The medium-sized rooms average 300 square-feet and are nicely adorned with mahogany furniture and marble baths. Some also have whirlpool tubs and gas fireplaces. In addition, guests can choose from individually owned one-, two- and three-bedroom condo suites that come with full kitchens, wood-burning fireplaces and balconies with great views of Vail Mountain. Hotel amenities include room service, concierge and a 24-hour front desk. The outdoor heated pool is the place to see and be seen, and Micky's cozy piano bar has a celebrated selection of single malt Scotches.
