My career path has taken me to some amazing places around the world and I’ve been fortunate to stay at numerous luxury hotel properties. Because of this, I am often asked what city or resort I’ve enjoyed the most. This is a difficult question for me, and usually requires a really long answer. However, I can tell you, hands down, that my favorite brand of hotel properties is Four Seasons. And while yes, they have amazing locations, beautiful suites, and impeccable grounds, it is their truly amazing, dedicated service that places them at the top of my list.
Recently, my husband, two young children and I visited the Four Seasons Resort in Vail, Colorado. We were greeted immediately and checked in within 5 minutes. When we got to our room, our luggage had already magically appeared, and I thought, how did that happen so quickly?
Our room was also thoughtfully prepared, with attention given to every detail–from hand-colored pictures for our kids, to cookies and milk with their names written in chocolate sauce.
We really wanted to experience the resort so we ate most of our meals there and truly “hung out.” The meals at the Flame restaurant were amazing. We ate breakfast and dinner there, and the breakfast buffet was the best I have ever enjoyed. Just imagine–homemade omelets, Belgian waffles, fruit, charcuteries, and the most unbelievable pork belly bacon you have ever tasted. (I really wanted to find a way to bring that stuff home!) Olga, our lovely wait staff, seemed to never leave our side, even for the buffet.
During our outings to the hot tub, there was always staff around, offering hot chocolate or some sort of wonderfully-made snack. You could, quite honestly, make Four Seasons Resort Vail your single and final destination (although of course there are also wonderful things to see and do outside the resort, in and around the city).
Ski season is, of course, a great time to visit Vail and the Four Seasons Resort–their ski valets are first rate–but the off-season is just as lovely as well. And the Four Seasons is, in my opinion, the only place to stay, should your travels take you to Vail.
