Having never been to Vail, I only had reviews to go on and location. Lion Square Lodge was in the perfect spot. We didn't need a car for anything because everything we needed was within walking distance. The view from the balcony was awesome. We could see the Gondola and Lift along with Gore Creek from the balcony. Waking up and seeing the view was something I looked forward to every morning that we were there. It should also be mentioned that the personnel at the lodge were extremely friendly and helpful. I'd love to visit again someday. And, I would definitely choose Lion Square Lodge again.

Thank you for the feedback and nice review. As you mentioned, Lion Square Lodge is located right at the base of the Lionshead Village and in the ski yard for the gondola. There is no closer location to the lifts in Vail. The property also sits along the Gore Creek on the south side of the property. We have a variety of units, ranging for a Lodge Room to a 4-bedroom condominium. I'm grateful to hear the staff was very friendly and helpful with all of your needs. Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you on your next trip to Vail.

DO NOT book this site. I booked a 5 person reservation SPECIFICALLY for 1 king, 2 twins and 1 sofa bed and received a STANDARD STUDIO with 2 queens. Then they refused to refund. Had to pay anyway and book some place else. Their defense is "third party manages their web postings." Total scam artist!!! Then because I cancelled they make it impossible to leave a review on the site. BUYER BEWARE. Places like this make you realize there are very few honest people left out there.

This is the best value in Vail. It’s adjacent to the Lionshead gondola and Lions Head square. Oh and it’s on the river. The views from every direction are stunning. There is a north tower and south tower. We booked ours through the Vacasa app and stayed in the south tower with a south facing room. Our room was tiny (335 square feet) but the balcony is truly all you need. Be sure and note if your room has a balcony. There are options with kitchens - depending on what you want to pay. The pool is set beautifully along the river with trees and flowers everywhere. I couldn’t get enough of the views! The service staff was super friendly and accommodating for several requests during our stay. We will be back for sure.

This was my first time to Vail, when I come back I am staying at this hotel again, and my wife totally agreed. This hotel is perfect for those wanting a high-end ski-in/out place, it's right next to the eagle bahn gondola, which is awesome. This place also has a kitchen depending on the level you select, and there is a grocery store you can get from the free shuttle service. We stayed at a unit on the back facing the mountain and it was fantastic!!! The guest service manager Andrew Mumaugh at the hotel was great and very helpful. He was part of what made this stay great. We also ran into a personal concierge, Joe "Rocko" Murad, this guy was plugged into everything Vail and the surrounding communities - from transportation to real estate this guy is tapped in!! He made the trip so much more memorable for my family with all of his help and insight. We are totally going back!!

We decided to stay here over New Years week due to its close proximity to the chondola. We rented a two bedroom condo which was amazingly situated for true ski in and ski out. The unit was very beautiful and well kept. The ski valets were great and very helpful in storing our skis and the Mexican restaurant in the building was excellent. This is however not what I would view as a true hotel. The concierge services were limited and booking dinners through them impossible. We booked through open table. Housekeeping was good but we needed to follow up a few times. They offer car service to main Vail high made going out super easy. The guys were fantastic. For ski in ski out value there is nothing better but this is not a five star hotel. Still. I would return with a family.
