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.

Rocker skis and snowboards were all the rage at the Snowsports Industries America show this spring, with new technology promising to add more fun and maneuverability to the sport. So what’s more fun than more easily gliding through the powder? How about a rock-bottom lodging and lift ticket deal at Vail, North America’s #1 ski area?

This winter at the height of ski season, the Antlers at Vail hotel offers its popular “Value Vail” package.  From January 7 to February 14, 2013, guests can enjoy 30% savings off regular prices.  Rates for the five-night package start at just $1149 per person for four people in a two-bedroom condo–including four-day lift tickets for all four skiers!  Readers who do the math will discover that the per-night, per-person rate for this deal is just $230—an unheard of price to stay and ski in Vail.

General Manager Rob LeVine recommends booking early to secure a package.  “We sold out of the Value Vail package last year, and we anticipate even more skiers and snowboarders at the resort this year,” he says.  “To get the deal, we recommend that travelers lock in dates and packages as soon as possible.”

The Antlers Vail offers condominiums ranging from studio suites up to four bedrooms with fully-equipped kitchens, fireplaces, outdoor balconies, free Internet access and free heated indoor parking – plus free equipment storage for skiers and boarders.  Every room provides plenty of space to spread out and all the comforts of home, and the Antlers’ Vail-insider staff is on call to answer questions big or small.

Conveniently located 200 yards from the Vail Gondola, numerous restaurants, galleries and shops are within walking distance and the free Vail town shuttle stops just footsteps away.  Named the Vail Valley ‘Green Business of the Year’ in 2009, the Antlers Vail condominiums are also proud to be named a Platinum Service Award Winner by the Vail Valley Partnership.  For more information, call 1-800-843-8245 or visit www.antlersvail.com.

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.

Pet friendly lodging Vail

Here comes a picture from “CJ” the dog. CJ the dog loves his “Antlers” speciality hat and is the owner of homosapien Heather Lovell with Ocean Summit Travel down in Boulder, Colorado. Thanks for the picture CJ !

The Antlers at Vail hotel is one of the few pet friendly lodging options in Vail. But always tell your reservationist, as pet friendly units are extremely limited at the Antlers.

Two Elk mountain biking trail

Saturday, September 4th, 2010

Two Elk mountain biking trail is a LONG… ride.  Figure on 4-6 hours.  It starts at the Antlers at Vail hotel and conference center and ends up being a 30 mile loop.  It offers around 4000+ vertical feet of climbing.  Just click on the attached map for details or even to print out the route.  Two Elk mountain biking trail is usually open from July 1 – until the end of September and travels through Vail’s Back Bowls (see our Vail ski map).  It is a combination of double track, single track, regular road and Vail bike path.  If you do ride by yourself, mention to someone where you are going, because you’ll be a LONG way from anything on this ride.  And bring tools and tubes.  I seem to get one flat tire each time I do this ride.  Chris R.

On the top of Benchmark overlooking the Gore Range and I-70.  Great place for a snack and a drink.

Up on top of Outer Mongolia Bowl ready to take the single track along the China Wall heading West above Vail’s Back Bowls.  We are at 11,600 feet at this point.

Pitkin Lake hiking Trail

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010

Pitkin lake trail in East Vail, Colorado is similiar to the popular Booth lake trail in that the final destination is a scenic mountain lake. It is about 5 miles one way and can take anywhere from 5-8 hours round trip with most people taking around 6 hours. The highest point along the pitkin trail is 11,400, which is higher than the top of Vail mountain. Total elevation gain is 3,000 vertical feet (thank you very much). It is quite steep at the beginning, so be ready. In addition, it can be deceiving for your arrival to the lake. Everytime you think you are there, you have more trail to hike and another hill to climb. The trailhead for the pitkin hiking trail is off of interstate 70, exit 180. Once you get off at exit 180 go north and take a right on the small road that heads east towards some townhomes. Trail head parking is along the street and the trailhead is on the north by the creek. It is a simple 10 minute drive from the Antlers at Vail hotel.

Have fun on the trail !

Vail Moose on the Loose

Tuesday, July 13th, 2010

Tom Schlader, our Chief Engineer and part-time nature photographer, captured these amazing pictures of the Vail moose and her calf today outside the Antlers. These are the infamous pair that have been seen all along the Gore Creek in Vail Village and trotting through Lionshead.  Several of our guests who were laying poolside at the Antlers at Vail Hotel also got to witness the event.
