If you want to get away for a few weeks or a few months, the Four Seasons hotel group has residences perfect for the family or a temporary base.
Today we go from South Florida to the Rockies and Southern California to see what it looks like if you want to move in with 5-star service.
1. Four Seasons Resort and Residences Vail
Winner of four stars from Forbes Travel Guide and four diamonds from AAA, Four Seasons Resort and Residences Vail offers over a dozen long-stay residences ranging up to six-bedrooms.
Forbes Travel Guide says, “The ski concierge can do everything from arrange equipment rentals and lessons, to provide maps and weather conditions…When you check into the hotel, a boot fitter will take measurements and preferences and send them to the ski concierge so that your warmed boots and waxed skis will be ready and waiting. Getting ready for a day on the slopes doesn’t get much easier than this. A heated path takes you from the hotel to a three-story building at the base of Gondola One, which houses the ski concierge.”
