We stayed in a two bedroom condo with a full kitchen. It was just as charming as the village. I think that each room is different so it depends on what you ask/pay for. Some rooms do not have AC, and the hotel rooms with just a bed are small but nothing abnormal.
Our room did have AC and was decorated just as charming as the village below. I am picky with where we stay and I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others, but I would probably insist on the unit we had. You truly cannot beat the location. Beds are comfortable, well decorated, great shower pressure. The staff clean your room in the afternoon and leave chocolates on your bed at night. Use the concierge to help you book activities, they know the area and can book activities for you easily.
Free coffee in the morning in the lobby and treats in the afternoon.
The pool is nice and heated with chairs and umbrellas as well as large towels for guests. They also have a small grill around the pool where you can order a quick bite to eat or drink. If you want to roast marshmallows at night ask the staff to turn on the fires around the pool
There are some parts of the lodge that are a little run down like the hallways and areas that have not been updated but I think it has just been well loved by a lot of guests
We did have to have help with our safe because it was not working properly, when I called someone came to our room immediately!
Down side- We did not have a washer or dryer in our condo which is a bummer when you are staying past 3 nights. They do have a washer and dryer in a room in the garage and you have to pay $4 in quarters total to wash/dry clothes, in addition to your detergent.
Our two bedroom condo was perfect and I would highly recommend unit 362. I do think there is an option to have a 3 bedroom in that unit. The only downside is that you face the main street village so one bedroom can be noisy in the morning during delivery.
This is a dog friendly resort- but ALL of Vail is dog friendly!
