A Hotel Bucking the Trend of Charging for “Extras”

Thursday, June 27th, 2013
As savvy travellers know, the advertised price of travel increases significantly with all of the fees that most hotels, except the Antlers at Vail, add on.

As savvy travellers know, the advertised price of travel increases significantly with all of the fees that most hotels, except the Antlers at Vail, add on.

In today’s travel environment, savvy travelers have come to expect annoying fees on top of whatever base price is advertised. Airlines tack on baggage fees, reservation change fees, movies, WiFi, upgrade fees for additional leg space, and more.  Rental cars?  Forget it!  Hotels charge for WiFi, parking, movie rentals, and many even add on resort fees. Well, not at the Antlers at Vail Condo Hotel… Our philosophy for the past 40 years has included exceeding expectations and not nickel and diming our guests. We do this in part by offering almost all amenities or “extras” at no additional cost. These free amenities include:

  • Free WiFi;
  • Free parking in our heated underground garage (1 car per condo);
  • A free Vail Athletic Club membership during your stay;
  • Free yoga classes twice a week;
  • A free shuttle to the grocery store to stock your full kitchen with groceries;
  • Free newspapers;
  • Free movies;
  • Free bike rentals;
  • Free snowshoe rentals in the winter;
  • Free luggage storage (from year to year);
  • And, just added to the list, free late check-out on Sundays!

Add up the cost of what you would pay for all of these extras when you stay elsewhere, and WOW, what added value or savings you receive by staying with us! And, did I mention that we are pretty darn fun too! I hope you will make an Antlers condo hotel suite your home in Vail this summer. We look forward to sharing our home and community with you!

Do you want to read more about those annoying extra travel and hotel fees that you can avoid when staying at the Antlers at Vail Condominiums and Conference Center? Travel + Leisure and TIME Magazine just published recent articles on the subject.

Tell us below the most annoying travel fee you have ever been charged.

Another 3-4 inches of new snow April 14th Vail

Thursday, April 14th, 2011

Mountain Top Express VailVail ski mountain and the Antlers at Vail hotel are not done for the ski season just yet. We have over a another week to go and there isn’t a brown spot on the mountain. Even before the 3-4 inches of snow today, the base on the top of Vail mountain was 77 inches. Sort of sad we’ll be closing in Vail on April 24th. We could probably go until May 24th this year!  Rest of this week, stay 3 nights at regular price and get the 4th, 5th and 6th nights free.  Rates from $160 per night for a full Vail condo on the river.

Montauk Seafood Grill

Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

Ask any Antlers employee where they go for seafood and chances are they will say Montauk. With fresh fish and seafood flown in daily Montauk Seafood Grill is the perfect restaurant if you have a hankering for some coastal fare while land locked in the mountains. Located in Lionshead Village, just steps from the Antlers, it is an ideal location for guests not wanting to venture too far from their condo. While Montauk specializes in seafood they also have a variety of steaks and an ever-changing grill list.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   A few of my menu favorites are the malpeque oysters on the half shell,

Crispy Calamari

Rhode Island calamari with basil aioli & tomato caper dipping sauces, Hawaiian ahi tuna, and the herb crusted halibut. Other Antlers favorites include the lobster mac and cheese with mascarpone and aged white cheddar and chives, Alaskan king crab legs and the specialty cocktails.

Here are some of our Montauk pictures taken over the last few months

Vail skiing conditions January 31

Sunday, January 31st, 2010

Sorry about the lack of vail skiing condition updates, but when the snow gets good (as it has been this past week) we don’t have a lot of time for pictures and posting blog updates.  We have to hit the slopes, right now.  That is just the way it goes.  So anyhow…..the skiing has been fantastic this week but we had some warm and sunny weather this past Friday and Saturday.  What that means is that Friday and Saturday skiing was GREAT but by Sunday it got pretty icy.  We either need more sun or new snow.  The bumps are staying soft on the northern facing slopes such as Vail front side and Blue Sky Basin, but the south facing Back Bowls were no good by this Sunday.  But don’t despair, it started snowing this Sunday afternoon as we were up on the mountain.  We expect 2-4 inches between now and Monday night.   Chris R.
