F U L LY E L E VAT E D A stay at Highline means never compromising. Like an expert run down the iconic mogul run from which we derive our namesake, it means unflinching attention to details. It means combining the conveniences of 21st Century urban life–walkable dining and nightlife options, sleek designs, superb professionalism, space to stretch your legs, quiet serenity, and welcoming rooms and suites geared toward communal and family interactions. Your mountain vacation shouldn’t be about either-or choices. You shouldn’t have to choose between secluding yourself from the local culture in a rented home or struggling to decompress in a confined village hotel room. You shouldn’t have to decide whether you want to connect with nature or nightlife. You shouldn’t have to select between having a calm corner of paradise to collect your thoughts or enjoying a robust après scene. That’s why, at Highline, we dare to ask–why not enjoy the best of both worlds?

From the tiny details– like parking included in our resort fee–to the overarching design principles of our construction–large, fully-equipped, modern rooms and suites meant to foster collective experiences–we’ve left no stone unturned when it comes to ensuring your peace of mind. So come breathe in the mountain air, bathe in the alpenglow, let your worries fade away, and enter the Highline state of mind.

F U L LY A C C O M M O DAT I N G At Highline, we take the notion of “full-service resort” seriously. Whether that means providing you with door-to-lift shuttle service to help you in your quest for first tracks, setting up mountain bike or ski rentals to fully equip your mountain vacation, or utilizing our Highline experience concierge to help give you an insider’s view of Vail by pointing relatively unknown mountain trails or diamondin-the-rough neighborhood eateries to make your experience truly one-of-a-kind, we’re committed to making your stay with us as seamless as possible. We know your stay can’t be enjoyed holistically if you don’t feel at home. That’s why we’re happy to go the extra mile to make sure you are afforded every convenience while staying with us. We pride ourselves on keeping our check-in times to under five minutes. We’ll go above-and-beyond to store all your ski gear for you in our lockers equipped with boot driers; to make sure there are always great grab-and-go food options available at Made Market for those on the run; to open up our conference rooms to accommodate larger groups or annual events. And, as a fully integrated smart hotel, we can make sure every particular–down to your room being set to your exact favorite temperature–is handled prior to you even checking in. At the end of the day, we want every aspect of your day to go off without hitch, and we’ll see to it that becomes a reality when you stay with us.

F U L LY CONNECTED A stay at Highline is about cultivating connections–connections to the natural splendor of the area, connections to loved ones, connections to one of the most vibrant mountain communities in the world. As such, we planned every part of our property to help maximize those connections so that you can create the memories that will last a lifetime during your stay. We’ve crafted our suites and rooms to be reminiscent of classic ski homes, but equipped them with modern interior design flourishes. We’ve focused our communal areas on drawing families and friends together–from spacious living rooms and vaulted ceilings in our suites to a traditional ski lodge A-frame roof, bar games, and plush leather furnishings in our lobby. To properly ski the infamous Highline run at Vail, you have to be fully immersed in the task at hand, totally ingrained in your surroundings. So it’s only right we replicated that singular mindset–of living each moment entirely for the moment at hand–into each square foot of our property. That’s life the Highline way.

F U L LY VA I L We want you to experience more Vail. To help you discover true Vail. To immerse yourself in local culture and routines. To feel like you’re really part of Vail, even if only for a moment. That’s why we’re proud of our West Vail roots. We’re proud of the fact that you can stroll from our front door to the same uncrowded hiking trails Vail natives use to escape the summer masses; proud that you can walk to the best nearby sushi joint in just a few seconds from our parking lot. To stay at Highline is not to simply spend a vacation at a hotel–it’s to see the full appeal of Vail from those who live every day in this mountain idyll. Come learn Vail’s secrets, experience its hidden gems, and intertwine yourself in the fabric of one of the world’s finest mountain communities. Come enjoy the Highline experience.
