VAIL ” The Roost Lodge will stay standing a few months longer than expected.

“We’re not going to break ground till next March,” said developer Kevin Deighan of Timberline Commercial Real Estate.

The lodge, built in the early ’70s. was originally scheduled to be demolished this spring to make way for a new Marriott Residence Inn as well as condos.

With the large amount of construction going on elsewhere in town, Deighan said, his team had trouble getting the contractors it needs.

But, in the meantime, the Roost will no longer operate as a hotel. It will be leased to construction companies for them to house their workers, Deighan said.

The Roost, long an inexpensive lodging choice in Vail, closed as a hotel at the end of the ski season. The new Marriott Residence Inn will have 101 hotel rooms and 28 condos.
