Worst Marriott Vacation Club Property
Reviewed 2 September, 2021
Sitting atop a 6 lanes of freeway traffic, this is the worst Marriott Vacation Club property I have stayed at in 30 years of ownership. Noise from the highway means you cannot talk on the phone or listen to the television at normal volume when the door/window is open. No air conditioning forces you to open the door/window. You're forced to make a choice between air or noise. Even with the door open and fans running, it was virtually impossible to get the temperature in the unit below 86 degrees at 10:00 PM. Other buildings in this property have problems as well. Marriott should be embarrassed to have its name on this property and should remove it from their inventory.
Not your typical Marriott Vacation Club

We have stayed at many Marriott Vacation Club properties. This property was not built by Marriott, but was purchased from a prior resort (to increase their footprint at Streamside), so it is not to Marriott's standards. Which I knew when we booked this so was not a surprise. We had a 1 bedroom, for 2 people was OK but the bathroom is very small. We stayed in summer, note the building does not have air conditioning. If I was staying here to ski I would ask about storage for your equipment as the 1 bedroom does not have storage in the room. We stayed in another building on this complex last summer, we had trouble with the gas grills at the other building last year, and the grills were not working this year by the Birch Building. This is an OK place to stay with great access to Vail (they have a shuttle) and to the Safeway across the highway, but be prepared it is not up to Marriott's standard if you stay in the Birch building.
Good but not great

We are Vacation Club members who have stayed at a number of MVC properties. This one was on the bottom of the list so far. It was not terrible, but certainly not to the same standards as other resorts. The rooms were equipped well and clean, though tired and a bit dated. The Birch building has no AC, which in and of itself is not a problem if you close the blinds during the day and open everything up in the evening. The problem is the noise from the nearby interstate, which made watching tv or speaking across the room problematic, not to mention sleeping.
There were limited property amenities as far as activities go. The pool and pool deck were small, the game room was limited but there were 4 hot tubs and several grill areas. We went in summer but if you went for skiing in winter, your needs would be met better. Although our stay was adequate, we likely won't be back.
NO A/C and Very Noisy!

With no A/C, life is miserable. You are forced to open the windows and suffer the exceleration sounds for the I-70 entrance ramp. They give you a fan to stir the hot air around. The ceiling noise is horrible as mentioned previously. I thought the family above us were conducting a gymnastics class. Before, the customer service jumps in and recommends requesting a top floor unit, high floor is in my profile. If you can get past the misery of no peace and quiet and going to bed when it is 80 degrees inside, the room is nice and comfortable. No laundry inside the unit. As a long time MVC member, I failed my family in not reviewing the previous reviews, which were accurate.
An Incredible Place to Call Home in Vail

I recently stayed here for a week and could not have been happier with the stay. It's super close and convenient to get to the mountain-the shuttle picks up every 15 minutes starting at 8:05am so we were able to take the first lift up when skiing. The condo is really comfortable. It was just the two of us but we easily could have accommodated another couple in the room. The views from the front balcony and window were really nice to wake up to each morning. Super friendly staff, too!
