What a find! You can't beat the view, location at base of gondola and the service. Everyone so friendly. From checkin to shuttle van drivers. We loved every minute of our stay and can't wait to go back.

We had high expectations for a 3 day trip to Vail staying at Lion Square lodge which is well reviewed and very close to prime skiing and shopping. We had booked months in advance and requested a king bed. Front desk was rude and unhelpful- we were given a room overlooking the parking lot , furthest from the elevator and...

Thank you Imran for your feedback, I'm disappointed to hear we were unable to fulfill your request of a king bed upon your check in. We work hard to accommodate all of our guest requests and needs. Unfortunately in your case, this did not occur on your first day. I apologize for the frustration this caused and appreciate your patience...

Our 3-bdrm condo was on the 6th Floor, closest one to the elevator (not a problem due to how the place is laid out). Condo was nicely stocked with all the basics and had great WiFi connectivity (free). Nice flatscreens and fireplace. Great view of of the western main lift area of Vail from our balcony. Fantastic restaurant & bar...

From the cheerful voice greeting us over the parking lot intercom, to the car hop, front desk staff...just very warm and wonderful team. Easiest access to a gondola I have ever had.

Hello HL W Thank you for the great review. I'm grateful to hear our guest services team was very welcoming and attentive to your needs.

The best thing about Lion Square lodge was the exceptional staff. Every single person from bell hop to courtesy van shuttle to ski valet to housekeeper was friendly, courteous and helpful. The ski in/out gondola access was great. We never used heated hot tub or pool since they were outside which we found baffling. Nor did we use indoor sauna....

We rented a privately owned condo from Wyndham Vacations. The unit was very nice - and the view from the deck was gorgeous. We were right above Gore Creek - and since my husband is a fly fisherman - this was perfect access. Lion Square Lodge also is a hotel - so there is a wonderful lobby and frond desk....

Stayed on a Saturday evening for 1 night. Price $220. Seems new on the outside, but the rooms felt old, especially the bathrooms. Nice to see a box fan in the room and gated parking. Easy location to get to.

The location is excellent for any season, but I was super disappointed with the room and maintenance. We reserved and received a one bedroom. South building, mountain view with a nice deck and even full size grill (we did not have time to use it, but nice touch). The rest of the room was super dated! Old carpet that is...
