The Lodge at Vail, A RockResort will undergo renovations this fall, with scheduled debut for the 2014-2015 winter season. The property will remain open for business during the renovations starting in August, and which will be completed in December.
The lodge at The Vail's International Wing of hotel rooms underwent renovations in 2008, and now the alpine inspired hotel's remaining 56 hotel rooms will be completely renovated. The scope of this renovation includes interior finishes, furnishings, soft goods, lighting and the installation of air conditioning. Additionally, the hotel's corridors, main stairways and lobby will receive upgrades as well. The lobby's refresh will include new furnishings, textiles, paint, artwork and lighting designed to maintain the authentic character of the property.
Last summer, the hotel's pool area was renovated including two side-by-side, in-ground hot tubs with a gas fireplace; furnishings; stonework and landscaping; two additional gas fire pits; a sound system with the ability to cater music to guests' needs; heating for year-round access; and a full-service bar and commercial kitchen.
This past winter one of the two on-site restaurants, Cucina at The Lodge at Vail, also received a facelift to its bar area. Cucina is known for its breakfast buffet and après ski by its outdoor fire pit.
The renovation of The Lodge at Vail marks the latest investment in Vail by Vail Resorts. In 2012, Vail celebrated its 50th anniversary with the Gondola One, a 10-passenger gondola with heated, cushioned seats and Wi-Fi access. This season, Vail Resorts installed the new Chair 4, a high speed, six-person chairlift.
