Pros

Cons

  • Some travelers prefer Vail Village over Vail Square

Bottom Line

This rustic-luxe, chalet-inspired lodge is one of Vail's premier options, with a location in the heart of Vail Square, near the Eagle Bahn lift. The 62 luxurious rooms feature massive bathrooms, stone fireplaces, and scenic balconies, and both the lavish spa and rooftop lap pool pack serious wow factor.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

European-style luxury in a chalet setting

The lobby resembles a classic European chalet, with its huge stone fireplace, high-back leather chairs, and a dramatic cast-iron chandelier. Large arching windows and thoughtful stone and wood finishes all anchor the luxury lodge decor. The apres-ski scene is thriving here, with a spacious outdoor patio and cozy tavern for snacks, cocktails, and full meals. The rooftop pool offers another scenic spot to relax, while the 10,000-square-foot spa complex has a long list of eco-conscious treatments.

 Location

At the heart of Vail Square, near the Eagle Bahn gondola

The Arrabelle is located west of downtown Vail Village in Vail Square. This chalet-inspired lodge is the closest hotel to the Eagle Bahn lift.

  • 1-minute walk to the Eagle Bahn ski lift
