From Puppies to a Pool-with-a-view, this condo hotel’s unusual offerings give Vail value

Reason #9 for an Antlers stay: Platinum-rated lodging with comforts of home – and daily housekeeping.

Vail, Colorado – Oct. 4, 2018 – The Nov. 16 opening day for Colorado’s Vail Mountain Resort is fast approaching. “Sheer vastness, epic back bowls, powder and sunshine have rightfully earned Vail its unofficial crown as the King of American ski resorts,” writes MountainWatch of the resort’s allure. While ski vacations never come cheap, value can be had in Vail for those who know where to look, from the Epic Pass’s discounted lift tickets (buy before Oct. 7 for best pricing) to immersion in the sport’s history at the Colorado Ski and Snowboard Museum ($5/adult donation suggested) to reasonably priced eats from locals’ favorites like Northside Grab & Go. Perhaps the key decision for a Vail value vacation, though, is lodging. That’s where Antlers at Vail hotel comes in.

The family- and pet-friendly Antlers at Vail condominium hotel has long been known for its mega-list of complimentary amenities, including daily housekeeping service, parking (when you book through Antlers) and ski valet service to the Eagle Bahn Gondola, as well as more unusual offerings like loaner sleds, snowshoes and GoPro cameras. Full kitchens mean budget-friendly dinners, whether you order a chef-prepared meal for the whole gang delivered to your guest suite, pick up one of Grab & Go’s take-and-bake offerings, or have the Antlers shuttle run you to the store for DIY makings.

L to R: Famously pet-friendly, Antlers also boasts a complimentary seasonal shuttle for grocery runs or trips around town and a year-round “pool with a view.”

A recent Antlers at Vail blog post, “Top Ten Reasons to Stay at the Antlers at Vail,” details some of the hotel’s many features, from #10 “Your furry friends will LOVE it,” to #7 “Weekly Complimentary Guest Receptions” featuring wine and light appetizers January through March, to the #1 reason, the undeniable “Location, Location, Location.” Only 150 yards from the Eagle Bahn Gondola, Antlers is close to the slopes, ski school and all the shops and restaurants of Lionshead Village.
