On Nov. 1, global hospitality group, Benchmark added Manor Vail Lodge to its Colorado portfolio. Established in 1965 and situated at the base of Vail Mountain’s Golden Peak, its location offers picturesque views, yet is within walking distance from the ski slopes, shops and restaurants, giving guests the perfect mix of fun and relaxation.

“Guests of Manor Vail Lodge can choose from a variety of room types including studio, one, two and three condominiums as well as luxury penthouses. All units differ in style and décor, making each condominium truly one-of-a-kind. Manor Vail Lodge is the only hotel in Vail with two outdoor heated swimming pools and four hot tubs,” says Nicole Martin, director of marketing, Manor Vail Lodge.

With more than 25,000 square feet of meetings and events space and the flexibility of being held indoors or outdoors, Manor Vail Lodge has designed its meeting spaces to suit the needs of various events. With visual and audio equipment available and a comfortable atmosphere inspired by Manor Vail Lodge’s surrounding mountains, meetings will feel less like work and more like a luxurious getaway.

“Manor Vail Lodge offers two dining options in the winter that include The Fitz Bar & Restaurant. The Fitz Bar is an inviting atmosphere where guests can cozy up by the crackling fireplace and enjoy local cuisine and artfully crafted cocktails. The Fitz Restaurant, open in the winter only offers guests a luxurious fine dining experience with floor to ceiling windows that look out on to Vail Mountains Golden Peak. During the summer months, guests can enjoy the outdoor patio that overlooks the Gore Creek and the Manor Vail Lodge covered bridge. Manor Vail Lodge offers daily guest breakfast and in-house catering services [too],” says Martin.

In addition, Manor Vail Lodge is well-equipped with all sorts of activities available to guests; snowboarding, dogsled rides, ice skating, zip-lining and goat yoga just to name a few. Also accessible to guests is the Manor Vail Spa, a certified Green Spa that focuses on health and wellness, mixing traditional and advanced therapies using organic products and tailoring treatments based on the individual’s needs.

“The guests of Manor Vail Lodge can relax with the comforts of home while enjoying all the amenities of a full-service hotel in the heart of the world-class destination of Vail, Colorado. Manor Vail Lodge is an all-season destination with convenient access to skiing, Vail Village, Ford Amphitheater, and all of Vail's top-rated attractions,” says Martin.

A wise ski instructor once said his favorite resort was the one with the most snow and the least people. When it comes to bringing a group up for the day from a nearby city or going all-in and planning an event in a ski resort’s base village, there are several mountains that fit that description across the West.

Tourism and skiing didn’t give birth to many of the West’s sweetest mountain towns. Instead, mining and early-day settlers were the drivers behind development that left behind character-filled downtown districts that are the community treasures of today. It’s important to note that sometimes downtown lodging properties don’t have enough guest rooms or function space to host groups, but options are typically available nearby (frequently ski resorts) for a win-win combination.

Antlers at Vail is making progress on its expansive new lobby space after the 5 million-dollar renovation project broke ground in April. Expected to be completed by December 2019, the Antlers crew looks forward to greeting guests with a fresh new space imprinted with a real Vail aesthetic.
