Arrabelle Stole My $4k with No Remorse
My husband and I booked a package through Vail Resorts for 4 nights at the Arrabelle + Epic passes. We paid over $1,750/day, but as it was our first Christmas together and as we were alone since is my husband’s mom died earlier in the year, we splurged. I tried to really knock Christmas out of the park and ordered my husband a $4k limited edition watch that was only available in London. To cut the “Saga of the Traveling Watch” short, it cost me another $1k and 3 months of logistical nightmares to get the watch back to the US just in time for Christmas. As we were nearing the 25th, I had the watch sent directly to the hotel through USPS with guaranteed delivery on December 23rd; however, the “guarantee” turned out to be only aspirational, with actual delivery on the 27th, after we had left. In the runup to the trip, I alerted the Arrabelle hotel staff of the complete details on the package, and during our trip, from December 20th to 25th, I chatted daily to the front desk as service mishaps – like forgetting to clean our room a couple of days, incorrectly booking our CME shuttle, and messing up a snow mobile tour – didn’t instill the greatest level of confidence in their abilities. As we left on the 25th and the watch still hadn’t arrived, we filled the Arrabelle’s package forwarding template with our details and requested insurance amount of $4k. The Arrabelle staff ensured us that the information filled on the form was complete and all they needed to redirect it to our home address. They would charge the Fedex shipping fees to the card linked to our room. When the watch arrived on December 27th, the Arrabelle staff redirected the passage and insured it for $2,450 without confirming the lesser insurance amount with us before sending. The staff sent us the tracking number and said the responsibility is no longer theirs. Fedex soon after lost the package. The Arrabelle refused any assistance in helping the Fedex claims officer with a description of the package. Upon verification that the parcel was lost, Fedex paid the $2,450 insurance to the Arrabelle, as the shipper. The Arrabelle accepted the $2,450 as their own, denied any wrongdoing in under insuring the package, has left all of our email and phone requests for clarification on the matter unanswered. We asked a lawyer to reach out to the Arrabelle, as at least the $2,450 if not the full $4k is legally ours. Our letters were redirected to an inconsiderate legal department that has refused to answer. I paid over $8k during my subpar stay, and they, in turn, cannot even bother to answer our calls or return to us the Fedex insurance money that they stole.
Went there on a crowded Super Bowl weekend. Prior to arrival, I had a lot of help from the hotel in arranging the car service from the airport to purchasing the ski lifts in advance. We got there late night around 11pm and everything is closed. I expected more night life activities but nothing. The skiing and the people are great. This hotel is okay - not spectacular except the fact that it’s location is right at the heart of it all. Its great to have an Sbux right around the corner and the ski rentals adjacent to it as well. Stores are a bit limited. I enjoyed the jacuzzi on the rooftop but one of the Two jacuzzis was out of order so a bit crowded in the one. We had a second floor room with a balcony but it was limited in the view and extremely dark. I recommend getting one at the top floor to have more sunlight.
Vail Ski Weekend
Our stay at Arrabelle was relaxing. The customer service from check-in to their ski valet service was as advertised. Most appreciated was the shuttle from Lionshead back to Vail Square by Rock Resort sister property staff after a chilly night walk - promptly and no questions asked.
Perfect! ... even for a non-skier
Everything about the hotel was as good as it can be. The location is great. For a skier, I don't think there can be a better location. The lionshead village is very beautiful. You are steps away from the gondola. Breakfast was included in our stay, a nice selection served in a nice setting. There is a free shuttle going to Vail town center in every couple minutes, bus stop is couple minutes walking distance to the hotel. One of the best experiences despite the fact that I am not an avid skier.
If There is Better, I'd Like To See It
Just returned from my first visit to the Arrabelle. All I can say is "stunning". The rooms are so well appointed and the staff so ready to serve, it's just a wonderful experience. The entire surrounding "Vail Square" at the base of the gondola just completes the experience. Anything you need, you will get including transportation to surrounding restaurants and the ski valets will ensure your equipment is on the hill and ready to go each morning. Fun bar at night as well with live music some nights. Breakfast was nothing special but very consistent. I haven't been to Vail in many years and my stay here reminded me how much I used to love this area. I'd come stay at the Arrabelle again without hesitation.
