The Sebastian

Last updated: 25 July, 2023

This is a stylish boutique hotel in the heart of Vail Village, a short walk from the main lifts. It has impeccable service: guests can expect daily greetings by name, flawless room service and a ski valet who will take their gear to and from the slopes.

The bedrooms and suites all feature 400-thread-count Egyptian cotton bed sheets and posh bathrooms. Some have fabulous views of the Rockies.

The hotel’s art collection is a big draw – limited-edition sculptures and paintings grace the walls. The outdoor mountain-view pool and hot tubs are another highlight, as is the hotel’s Leonora restaurant, which offers gourmet-esque dishes inspired by local ingredients.

Note, prices skyrocket in January and February – it’s much better value in the shoulder seasons. Also don’t discount non-ski seasons. There’s a host of summer activities on offer, including an exclusive 2-night stay in a luxury tent in the Rocky Mountains.

About the resort

The upmarket resort of Vail – with its swanky hotels, boutique shops, and fine dining galore – attracts luxury travellers from all over the globe.

But diehard skiers shouldn’t let its glitz distract them – with over 5,000 acres of terrain, Vail is a fantastic ski area for all abilities.

With an exceptional snow record, Vail boasts miles of perfectly manicured trails, ideal territory for confident intermediates. There is lots of variety for experts, too – the legendary Back Bowls are a powder playground after a snowfall.
