We love hearing from our guests, both directly and indirectly. Here are just a few things that people are saying.

“A returning customer for many years”
The Sitzmark is an extreme value in Vail. The location in Vail village is very convenient to anything you might wish to do, summer or winter. The rooms are very nice. The service is always great. The employees always make a special effort to meet your needs. Plan to return for ski season 2012.

“A small European style lodge in a great location.”
The Sitzmark has been a family owned Vail landmark since the town was founded, but it doesn’t rest on its laurels. My room was nicely updated, extremely comfortable, and the bed was fantastic. The staff was super-friendly and helpful in every way. Others have commented on the creek view. I was on the other side, overlooking the village street and mountain but didn’t feel short-changed at all.

“Great Hotel in Vail”
Great find in Vail. Spacious and quiet room overlooking Gore Creek, right in the middle of Vail Village. Staff were great, and was one of the most comfortable beds I’ve slept on in a hotel for a long time. My only small complaint is that the internet service on the 3rd floor was very slow, seemed find down in the lobby. Hope to come back!!!

“Best-kept Secret in Vail”
This little boutique hotel is the best-kept secret in Vail. Affordable and quaint with a perfect location on Gore Creek. I’ve been staying at the Sitzmark for almost 10 years and every time I have loved it.

“Friendly, accommodating staff”
Such friendly, accommodating staff that made the entire stay such a fun, memorable time! Awesome amenities and a nice lodge right in Vail Village. The cozy room was surprisingly quiet considering it was in front of the staircase and by the pool. The complimentary bike made cruising in Vail even better! Thank you, Sitzmark!
