Vail Date Night

With the kids back in school, why settle for the same old date night fare when Vail is calling, with autumn’s quieter streets, cooler temps and those famous Colorado aspens lighting up in breathtaking shades of gold? It’s time to head for the hills with your favorite someone for a proper getaway with Antlers at Vail hotel’s Vail Date Night package this fall, offering a comfy luxe Antlers guest suite with a bottle of wine for sipping on your private balcony, plus a visit to Vail’s nationally lauded Root & Flower wine and cocktail bar, all at a value price starting from $220/night.

The Antlers is “an ideal place to have a Colorado Staycation,” writes In Good Taste Denver’s Courtney McDonough after a recent visit, “… with a casual, un-stuffy vibe but all the conveniences you’d want.”

Connect with nature’s colorful palette then après with sips and snacks at Root & Flower, followed by a cozy-luxe stay at Antlers at Vail hotel (hiking photo: Jack Affleck; Root & Flower photo: Sleepy Shutters).

While Antlers is well-known as “an incomparable choice” for families as USA Today recently put it, the hotel’s quiet creekside location, spacious suites with gas fireplaces and private balconies, and dedicated staff – their motto is “the answer is yes, now what was the question?” – is equally ideal for a romantic partners’ escape. Start the day with fresh-brewed coffee from the complimentary, locally roasted beans in every kitchen, borrow a guest loaner bike to ride along the Gore Creek path outside Antlers’ door, go for a hike surrounded by the colorful changing aspens, take a swim and a soak in the hotel’s year-round outdoor pool and hot tubs followed by relaxation at the poolside fire pit, or just stroll the shops and eateries of steps-away Vail Lionshead Village with its inviting all-pedestrian streets and alpine vibe that feels like a mini European vacation.

End the day at Root & Flower with the gift certificate included in the Vail Date Night package. Featuring most of the team from Vail’s famed Kelly Liken restaurant of old, the hip watering hole has made national media waves with its more than 50 by-the-glass wine pours, extensive bottle selection, botanically inspired craft cocktails and an ever-changing menu of food pairings from seasonal small plates to heartier offerings, all served up in an approachably elegant setting. “Savor braised pork cheeks and duck fat potatoes (alongside an impressive cocktail program) while lounging on their blue leather banquettes,” writes Travel + Leisure.

Offered through October 31, 2023, Antlers at Vail’s Vail Date Night package includes all of the hotel’s famously wide array of complimentary amenities, as well as a bottle of wine on arrival in the guest suite and a $50 gift certificate to Root & Flower. Fall value pricing starts from $220 for two people in a studio condominium (tax is additional, but as always, Antlers charges NO resort fees), based on dates of stay. Additional nights and one- to four-bedroom condominiums are also available. Reserve the package at or by calling 888-268-5377.
