Scout loves

  • Very private atmosphere. Feels like an exclusive club.
  • Modern furnishings and finishes in rooms – that look great and are more comfortable than the rustic mountain-style furnishings commonly found in Vail.
  • Great mountain views from some condos.
  • Spacious and luxurious. Condos are laid out well for couples sharing.

Scout tips

  • Located on the edge of Lionshead village – a happening ski base a short distance from Vail Village.
  • No on-site restaurant, though the bar does have some nibbles for après ski and it’s only a short walk to all the restaurants in Lionshead Village.
  • Shares a ski valet with The Arrabelle.
  • Mountain views cost extra. The standard view is of the I-70 Highway and the hills behind it – which isn’t a bad option – but not as scenic as the other side.


The Ritz Carlton Vail is situated within a huge yellow building that does all it can to attract attention to itself. But in contrast to this, what makes this hotel different to all the other 5 star properties in the Vail area is that it feels a little more secluded and private.

The Ritz Carlton Vail is located at the far end of Lionshead (via a still relatively short walk to the gondola and village base), and its facilities are totally closed to the public. There is no restaurant or bar to attract a crowd – only those who are staying there get to enjoy the facilities – which include an outdoor pool and hot tub with mountain views, locker rooms and steam rooms, and a bar that serves après nibbles. And while it doesn’t have a full-blown spa, massages can still be arranged in the massage rooms.

Most of the condos are finished with stylish yet comfortable modern furnishings, making them feel quite hip and cool – not a single deer head to be seen. Meanwhile, the rooms and living areas are generously proportioned. If you’re lucky enough to get a condo right up the top, the double-height ceilings and cathedral windows offer a certain ‘wow’ factor that’s worth seeking out. 

Who should stay here

The Ritz Carlton Club is great for those seeking superior luxury but who don’t feel the need to be seen while staying in the Vail.
