Travelled to Vail the last week of the season and stayed at Lions Square Lodge. The condos were very nice with balconies overlooking the bridge at the foot of the trail. The rooms were cleaned daily, which was unexpected. There is Skil Rental on sight making the logistics easier. Speaking of logistics, the Gondola is just a few steps from...

Thank you for your nice review. I'm grateful to hear you had a great time during the final week of Vail's ski season. As you mentioned, Lion Square Lodge is next to the gondola and our ski valet service is located on our back deck adjacent to the ski yard, providing for the best ski in/ski out experience in Vail....

We're staying at the Lion Square Lodge for the 2nd time. Our condo is beautiful, the location is great, but the customer service is subpar. My son cam out to visit for the day, and parked in the garage. I forgot to get him a parking pass, which is all my fault. They were here for just over 90 minutes,...

Mike L, General Manager at Lion Square Lodge, responded to this review

Thanks for your feedback and I apologize for the confusion and frustration regarding the parking at the property. There is adequate parking in the parking lots for our owners and guests, although it can be at capacity during peak times which is why we do require a parking pass on all vehicles parked on property. We do offer both complimentary...

I was shocked by the terrible customer service at the hotel. We called to ask for a late checkout (10 am checkout policy) because our two year old son was sick and still taking his morning nap. I spoke with the front desk who denied the request and then asked for the manager, who I presumed would be reasonable. The...

Thank you for your review. I apologize that we were not able to accommodate your late check out request. I hope your son is feeling better.

I have been coming to Lion Square Lodge for over 10 years mostly staying here every single time. If ski-in and ski-out is a priority for you then this will blow your mind. Start your ski day and your about 50 yards away from the gondola and end it with probably the shortest walk back to any hotel in Vail...

Mike L, General Manager at Lion Square Lodge, responded to this review

Thank you Bob for your feedback and the nice review. We appreciate your continued patronage to Lion Square Lodge. I agree with you that it is the best ski in/ski out access in Vail, especially with our ski valet service located on our back deck next to the Lionshead gondola ski yard. El Sabor is open from 7:00 am-10:00 pm...

We stayed here for 6 nights over our son's spring break. The place is one of the best value's we have found and we have been going for years. The service is what blew us away.

This hotel has to be in the best location - truly ski in - ski out, and a valet to take your skis before you have walked 5 paces! Then hot drinks waiting - excellent. The staff were great - super helpful and pleasant - full marks to them all. But, the property is shabby and the rooms furnished by...

I bought a new snowboard 2 days ago and after a day of use, I checked my brand new snowboard to the hotel's ski-valet service. To my surprise I came back for my board 2 days later and found my board scratched and the bindings had been moved, somebody had definitely used my board the day before without my permission...

Thank you for your feedback. We take accusations of damage and theft very seriously.
