Today we don't have many plans except to drive to Vail. This was not on our original itinerary but when the National Parks closed and we shuffled things around we added tis instead of Yellowstone.

About half way through our drive we spot a sign for a National Monument. We have a pass that allows us to go to National sites so …

A long drive today, but the scenery was well worth it. We stopped at areas where the Indians had built their homes in huge caves, And saw spectacular scenery all day. At a spectacular bend in the river, we had champagne and nibbles. Now we are in Moab, on a Navajo Indian reservation. The view from our balcony is gorgeous, ...

The day started with a trip to the Butterhorn Bakery for the girls and I. Amazing breakfasts!!! Brian had to get "back to work" after two days off. The kids and I explored a few parks in town. We took a ride to Loveland Pass and ended up walking around the outlets before crashing. A great, restful ...

Left Denver at 7.30am. First stop was Vaile....a beautiful ski resort, with buildings like being in Austria. Wish we could have stayed there longer. Into the Moab area .......so stunning and massive. Big rock mountains and strange rock formations both sides of the bus, and it looks like there could be landslides any time !! Absolutely spectacular. Moab tonight, and we're going on a ...

... up some essentials (cooler, snacks, drinks, ice) and headed west. Denver is 5,000 feet above sea level and then we drove and gradually approached the beautiful mountainous area of the Rocky Mountains and then the Arapaho National Park. Our highest altitude was 10,600 feet and then we gradually got to 8,100 feet when we arrived in Vail, Colorado, which was established in 1962. It is beautiful weather - ...

    Overall this is a nice resort. Nice heated outdoor pool.

    Rooms are nice and we had a really big balcony with a view of the mountains. Hotel has coin op laundry.

    This resort is aging but it was clean and staff was very friendly.

    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.

    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.

    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!
