    Historical Traveler Reviews Vail Cascade Resort & Spa

    O.k

    from

    After staying at the Ritz Carlton in Bachelor Gulch you feel as if this hotel is a dump. The service was ok. They were NOT very helpful at all. Also the resturant there was horrible. They made me sit there for 3 hrs only to tell us that the head chef had just been fired. Some good things about this hotel is the movie theatre. The movies are about 2 weeks behind but its still a great past time. The skiing here is hurrendous. If your going skiing go to beaver creek or Bachelor Gulch not in Vail. The town is also run down. beaver Creek is so much more luxurious and welcoming. Overall this resort was ok.

    Expensive but nice

    from

    I have stayed at the vail cascade every january for the last 7 years. it is clean, quiet and all of the staff are very nice and helpful. The accomadations are very very expensive. The food is above average. The adjacent health club and spa is outstanding. The rooms are a little on the small and tight side especially if there are more than 2 people.The maid service is outstanding. The heated pool and hottubs are large and clean. They have a convenient shuttle service.

    Vail Cascade hotel room with a mountain view...a piece of heaven on earth

    from

    Just returned from a summer interlude at the Vail Cascade resort with our family. Can't say enough good things about this destination as a wonderful summertime adventure for families. Our stay was not wonderful at first, as we were booked into a condo that was spacious but a bit tacky. We were moved to a hotel room which was much smaller, but more elegant and suited to our idea of a vacation getaway. Outside our mountain view balcony was the Gore Creek and the spectacular mountainside....the serenity of the babbling creek, the sunshine, the smell of the outdoors, the wildflowers in bloom and the occasional fly fisherman, all blending to create a panorama worthy of a postcard. The staff at the Vail Cascade was wonderful and responsive to any request. The restaurant--Chaps--offered an expensive but very excellent meal and a view worth the price of admission. Biking, white water rafting, hiking, Adventure Ridge, bungee jumping, wall climbing, the gondola, the Alpine slide at Breckinridge, the Betty Ford Gardens, and just walking the trails, shopping at fabulous Vail Village or lounging at the pool or at the spa and health club made this a destination perfect for our active family of a school age and high school age children. Everyone should visit Vail in the summer, and if you are really lucky, you will get a mountain view room at Vail Cascade. Next time, I plan to spend some time at the spa and more fully utilize their unbelievable health club....and we will fit horseback riding and a visit to Hanging Lake in as well. You won't be disappointed. Restaurants abound, also, and City Market and Safeway are nearby for all those items you may have left at home....Enjoy!!

    Great Deal

    from

    Stayed here with my family early August 2004. Got a great deal on this 4*** property with Priceline. They treated us as well as any other guest. Classy place. My wife loved the spa. The spa and healthclub facilities are included with your room. Had drinks at night in the wonderful and active lounge/great room. However, request a room NOT overlooking the courtyard-can be noisy at night.

    Hotel okay, but expensive

    from

    My husband and I stayed for about a week at the Vail Cascade Resort in August 2002.

    The resort didn't leave a big impression with me one way or the other. It is touted as a five-star resort with ski-in and ski-out access. I am assuming this is great in the winter. In the summer being a good 1.5 miles from Vail Village is a big of a pain.

    The highlight of the resort was their restaurant Chaps -- we had the best steak we have ever had in that restaurant.

    The service was friendly and efficient. The rooms were a good size and clean. The sports complex was wonderful.

    After now having stayed at a couple of other resorts at Vail, I wouldn't return again.

    Nice place but expensive

    from

    A bvery large place, with a short-bus ride to the slopes, with its own movie theatre, a spa and a renowned restaurant, cozy atmosphere and pretty rooms, but way too expensive! I would much rather spend my 5 days skiing somewhere in the Alps for half the price.

    Vail... a beautiful postcard

    from

    Just returned from my Christmas vacations at Vail, with its breathtaking scenery, all covered with snow. It really looked like a postcard. Stayed at the Vail Cascade Resort for 10 days, and have mixed feeling about the hotel. Booked a deluxe suite for $950/ a night at their web site, quoted as ideally for a small family, and what a dissapointment when check-in. It was a long, narrow room with a separate bedroom, an uncomfortable sofa bed, a small bathroom & a TV cabinet. Nothing compared to the description at their web site.

    Inmediately went to the front desk and complained , but the hotel was completely booked, so had to wait until Jan.2 to change rooms. On that day, after a good negotiation the assistant manager, gave me a complementary, connecting room to my" so called suite," and my kids got a large , comfortable room for themselves, much nicer than mine. My advise , if need more space, try 2 separate connecting rooms instead of a suite. Overall the hotel was nice, friendly staff, a little bit on the outside of the Village, but with an efficient shuttle service, a great Spa, a well stocked PEPI's sport store and a superb restaurant called CHAPS.

    One of the Best

    from

    My husband and I stayed at the Vail Cascade Resort and Spa for 7 nights in July. We truley felt like royalty. All of the staff went far and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. Room service was quick and the food was excellent.As well as the resturant, the food was outstanding! The pool/spa attendants were wonderful. Our room was a Mountain View Suite and it was beatuiful. The rooms don't have air cond, which I was surprised at, but they do have ceiling fans and at night there is really no need for an air cond. due to the sun going down, it really cools things off. The shuttle service was fine, taking us to Lions Head or Vail Village. The Aria Spa was so relaxing and wonderful, it was a real treat. The scenery was really lovely and again the service was 110%! This trip was definatley one to take if your looking to have a relaxing trip and be pampered.~Scott and Jill

    Not very relaxing and very expensive

    from

    My wife and I stayed here in March and found that it oversold and underdelivered. It was very expensive and frankly poor value for money.

    The room was very tired and dark. The horrid bathroom was past its sell by date. The main (and only)restaurant was not an option for regular dining: haute cuisine at haute prices. The bar - which offered a cheaper dining alternative was overcrowded and very noisy. Every night, a protest singer in the style of Joan Baez would wail her laments drowning out any possibility of social intercourse. The public rooms were draughty and uncomfortable. Worse, on several night we - as regular guests were barred from using them - as the middle managers from some ghastly corporation arrived for their convention in the hotel and took up occupation. The concierge told us that convention business took priority-if we wanted a quiet hotel we should have booked into the Sonnenalp up the road. Ski-in/ski out was great and most of the staff were pleasant if a little amateur. Breakfasts were good and plentiful.

    The shuttle bus to Vail (15 minutes) was efficient. Why don't they refurbish their rooms, keep the convention people in their "business centre" and provide an affordable dining room?

    Loved the Cascade!

    from

    This hotel, although a bit outside of Vail Village, is wonderful. The grounds and rooms are beautiful and the service fantastic. We had a huge room with great courtyard views. The complimentary hotel shuttle runs to Lionshead and Vail Village every 20 minutes or so-couldn't have been easier. Great stay!

Point being, everyone can always use a gentle reminder about respecting other cultures and in turn assisting in the global dialogue as we continued to become a "flat" world. In the words of the Dalai Lama, "observe different expressions of kindness and compassion."
