SUMMARY

Marrying the convenience of a ski-in, ski-out resort with the architectural flair and plush amenities of a European ski chalet, the Arrabelle at Vail Square is a mountainside gem. Its peaked roofs help define the skyline at the base of Vail Mountain in Lionshead Village. Canopy beds and fireplaces encourage cozying up in the 36 rooms and 50 residences, which surround a ground-level ice rink during the winter.

The 10,000-square-foot spa complex is especially soothing after descending from Eagle Bahn Gondola, just 100 yards away. Or on a powder-filled day, head in early and request a seat on the terrace of the recently expanded Tavern on the Square restaurant to watch fellow skiers fly down the slopes.

The hotel features 62 spacious, elegantly designed guest rooms as well as several five-bedroom private residences. After you’ve conquered the slopes, wrap your fingers around a cup of hot cocoa by the two-story fireplace in the spectacular Great Room. 

Unwind in thestate-of-the-art RockResorts Spa and fitness center, or just breathe in the fresh mountain air while lounging in one of the rooftop pools. Sip après-ski cocktails on the terrace or savor the culinary delights served up at Tavern on the Square. The Arrabelle at Vail Square offers an unparalleled experience you’ll want to re-create time and time again.
