Curbed Ski lists Antlers as a U.S. Best Ski Hotel for Families “packed with amenities the kiddos will love”
Vail, Colorado – December 15, 2015 – “How can you instill your love for the mountains, catch some powder turns, and keep your sanity, all while raising a family?” asked Curbed Ski recently. Their answer – that “a good hotel makes all the difference” – led to the Antlers at Vail hotel in Vail, Colo., being named by to the popular ski website’s list as a Best Ski Hotel for Families across the country. The Antlers’ Platinum-ranked condominium suites with full kitchens, dining areas and living room space for families to spread out – including the budget-friendly “one-bedroom with bunks” suites that allow a family of four to enjoy Antlers comfort at one-bedroom pricing – are just one of the ways the hotel caters to families.
“Situated on the banks of Gore Creek in Vail’s Lionshead village, Antlers is a good choice for families looking for convenience, location, and luxury at reasonable prices,” writes Curbed Ski. “Families will appreciate the hotel’s close location to the Lionshead Gondola and easy access to the in-town shuttle. In-room fireplaces, an outdoor pool, and two hot tubs are additional pluses, and during a snowstorm you’ll really appreciate the free parking in the heated underground garage,” the review continues, adding a note on Antlers’ pet-friendly policy as well.
“We’re honored to be included in Curbed Ski’s new ‘best’ list for family-friendly ski lodging across the U.S.,” says Antlers at Vail GM Rob LeVine. “Our standard customer service response is ‘The answer is yes; now, what was the question?’ – which can be a big relief to harried parents, whether they need the refrigerator stocked with kids’ favorites before they arrive or arrangements for non-skiing fun like ice skating or snowshoeing. We have Ski Butlers on-site to custom-fit rentals, if you need it – and offer complimentary ski valet service to lug family gear to the gondola and back. We can even find a local babysitter if you need a Vail date night.”
