I wondered about the kitchenette. I looked at Manor Vail, Mountain Haus and Austria Haus as 3.5*s and none mention Kitchenette in the descriptions on the 'retail' side. Not sure if that is complete list (though they list a lot, like billiards, etc). It also looks like Vail Cascade (4*, slopeside, etc) has rooms Sun-Wed 3/18-21 at $149/nt as a Hotwire rate, so there is inventory going begging during prime Spring Break. I was just there last week and the snow is decent but well below last year's epic conditions, so I wonder if prices are reflecting that. FYI I'm still deciding whether to ski Vail 15-17 Mar, or 19-21, as I'll ski Breck the other days. Gotta decide soon!! Thanks and I'll let you know what I decide (I might just Priceline and try for the Comfort Inn Avon, it's fine and even w/ $25 day parking at Vail, can be a very cheap deal). I'll use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links and post the appropriate win.
