In the midst of impersonal corporate hotels, the Christiania at Vail holds its ground as a charming and welcoming European-style lodge. Those looking for the comforts of home on vacation will find them here, in an atmosphere that encourages both outdoor exploration and indoor relaxation.
What to do:
Vail is one of the most famous skiing hotspots in the country, so there’s plenty to get you pumped up about a day on the slopes. Put on your skis and head out straight from the lodge—the Vail Village lift is in your backyard. An Orbitz reviewer said, “This is old school Vail! Love the staff, and the location is worth millions. The accommodations are perfect for a ski lodge. The pool and Apres Ski lounge are such a bonus.”
When you’re not skiing, relax in the outdoor hot tub or enjoy a walk through Vail Village shops and restaurants. The Ford Amphitheater and Betty Ford Gardens are nearby, and afterward you can sip a hot drink at Sarah’s Lounge, a favorite apres-ski spot.
