Whether you’re planning a last minute mountain escape with friends, or a mid-winter getaway for the whole family, explore premier lodging in Vail. From ski-in, ski-out hotels, to premium residences and international resorts, the lodging opportunities in Vail are endless. To help you plan your winter getaway, we’ve put together a list of the 5 most unique places to stay in Vail.

At the Game Creek Chalet, it’s not just the altitude that takes your breath away. High above Vail, nestled in the glades of the Game Creek Bowl, rests the exquisite ski-in, ski-out four-bedroom European-style mountaintop chalet. With a hot tub overlooking Game Creek Bowl and a private snowcat to bring you to dinner at the Game Creek Club, it is safe to say the Game Creek Chalet offers an experience as incredible as its views of the back bowls.


The Vail Marriott Mountain Resort provides everything you need to ski, shop, and relax with the feel of a European ski chalet. When you request an Icelantic Suite, you will enjoy all the comforts you have come to expect from a Marriott hotel, along with vibrant artwork from Icelantic Skis that truly brings these rooms to the next level. Guests who stay in an Icelantic Suite will also enjoy Icelantic ski demos as part of their lodging package.

At the newly renovated Hotel Talisa, your winter adventure awaits. Tucked ideally in the corner closest to the on-property chairlift, the Two Bedroom Suite is the ultimate expression of alpine luxury. Two spacious bedrooms connect to living and dining areas – the perfect blend of privacy and togetherness. In the master bedroom, a built-in double-sided fireplace creates a mesmerizing focal point for both the cozy sitting area and four-poster king bed. After an active day, guests can retreat to their private bathroom and soothe tired muscles in the freestanding copper soaking tub or large, glass-enclosed shower. Throughout the Talisa Suite, hardwood floors with rugs, a comfortable seating area and handsome oak dining table for eight create a welcoming mountain respite after a day well spent.


The Bavarian-inspired architecture of The Ritz-Carlton Residences instantaneously conveys a place that truly stands apart from other lodging options. Enjoy all the lavish amenities that the Ritz-Carlton has to offer, including ski valet, complimentary shuttle service, and a heated outdoor swimming pool. The five bedroom mountain-view penthouse features a spacious living area, making it the perfect gathering spot for family and friends. Guests will also enjoy the stunning gourmet kitchen, game room, and spectacular mountain views. This penthouse truly embodies luxury at its finest.


A confluence of approachable chic and high mountain comfort, The Sebastian – Vail, A Timbers Resort offers luxury, comfort, and convenience with its premier location in the heart of Vail Village. For accommodations that are both deluxe and expansive, look no further than the Four Bedroom Residential Suite. This suite offers spacious living quarters, ideal for families or groups.
