Forget Snow! Vail Resort Offers Summer Hotel Deal That Won’t Melt Finances

Rather than zipping down a slope on a set of skis, couples and families will want to zip on down to a gorgeous Vail resort to take advantage of a plethora of unforgettable summer activities and a great Vail hotel deal.

The Vail Marriott Mountain Resort is encouraging travelers to forget the white powder and instead concentrate on average summer temperatures in the mid-70s by introducing a special Vail hotel deal. Guests can take advantage of luxury accommodations starting at $189 per night after any number of family-fun activities during the day. The Vail resort’s Gas Up and Go package for couples includes breakfast for two and a $25 Shell gas card, while its Gas Up and Go With the Family deal adds two more free breakfasts at the resort’s own First Chair Café.

Whether it’s zip-lining from a mile high, rafting down a river or hiking up in the mountains, thrill seekers will enjoy so many things to do in Vail during their vacation adventure which also might include:
-A listen at the Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival. This summer features the sounds of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, Big Music For Little Bands, Piano Extravaganza and more. (June 25-Aug. 4)
-A swing on the dance floor at the Vail International Dance Festival. One of the country’s premier gatherings, this event includes free dancing seminars, interactive workshops and performances by world-renown dancers, choreographers and musicians. (July 29-Aug. 11)
-A “soul” searching experience at the Vail Soul Festival. Top musicians, empowerment events and cultural activities highlight three days and two nights of R&B, hip-hop, alternative rock, blues and neo soul. (Aug. 17-19)
-A patriotic tribute during Vail America Days. The red, white and blue celebration starts with a mid-morning parade and ends with spectacular fireworks at Golden Peak at around 9:45 p.m. (July 4)
-A ride of a lifetime on a scenic gondola. The Eagle-Bahn gondola is open daily and features panoramic views of Vail Mountain. Families can bring a bike up and ride down on one of several mountain biking trails. (Daily)

After a jam-packed day of activities, vacationers can retire back to their luxurious Vail, Colorado hotel and unwind in rooms featuring Marriott’s signature Revive bedding package sporting down comforters, custom duvets, cotton-rich linens and down and feather pillows. Wireless Internet, flat-panel TVs, in-room coffee makers, robes and spacious bathrooms are among the other deluxe amenities resort guests will enjoy.
Guests can pack up the family and head to Vail, Colorado on this Family Drive and Dine deal by using promotional code CSE now through Sept. 30.

One of the premier Vail resorts, the Vail Marriott Mountain Resort is nestled at the base of Vail Mountain, only 150 yards from the Eagle Bahn gondola. The Vail ski resort offers the charm and elegance of a European chalet complete with cozy rooms, heated pools, ski and bike rentals and the Golden Leaf Spa. The resort also boasts 21,000 square feet of meeting space, three restaurants and a state-of-the-art fitness center featuring cardio equipment, free weights and changing rooms. For information, visit
