Overview

Ski-in, ski-out luxury on the banks of Gore Creek with the best fitness center in the Vail Valley

The Look

Along the roaring Gore Creek at the westernmost foot of Vail Mountain, Vail Cascade delivers the conveniences and amenities of a mega-resort in an incredibly intimate setting. A $30 million renovation upped its cache, strengthening the hotel’s connection to the outdoors and adding an infinity pool and a patio area with firempits that stretches from the hotel to the creek. At on-site restaurant Atwater on Gore Creek, stacks of cut lodgepole pine frame a rambling mural of the rushing water. A steel-clad see-through fireplace adds warmth to the room, while soaring windows frame the mountains and open onto a new patio, perfect for warm-weather dining.

Bed & Bath

The hotel’s 285 rooms and suites — many with balconies and fireplaces — are decked out with snappy red and beige striped carpeting, crisp neutral bedding, and fluffy pillows and comforters. Rich wood accents add that lodgey vibe typical of ski hotels, but there’s a 42-inch flatscreen TV, iPod dock and wifi if you need to stay connected to the world. Big bathrooms are stocked with environmentally friendly bath products.

Beyond

The hotel’s enormous fitness facility is one of the best in the Vail Valley. Indoor tennis, basketball, volleyball, racquetball and squash courts, plus a lap pool, are complemented by a parade of cutting-edge fitness classes — everything from power Pilates to cardio tennis. While the atmosphere is welcoming, this is a serious workout facility where it’s not unusual to find yourself one spin bike away from an Eco-Challenge athlete.

Really lovely condo with beautiful views and quiet surroundings. Right next to the ski lift although the lift required a few subsequent lifts to get to the main Vail ski area. Same issue with access to the village with shops and restaurants - this too required some time to get to via shuttle. Staff and management of the condo were extremely friendly and welcoming. Condo itself very comfortable and well appointed.

This is the 2nd time we've stayed at this property. we stayed in the condos as we like to do a little of our own cooking. Very beautiful grounds, excellent valet service from condo to slopes. excellent ski valet service...will never go back to lugging our own skis to and from slopes each day. Condo was very clean and cleaning service each day was excellent. This property is great.

A very nice property with great service staff. it was an easy 5 minute walk to the venture sports ski shop that is located 15 feet form the cascade lift. Would definitely stay there if we were going to ski vail again.

Stayed at the excellent Talisa Hotel but don't stay in their condos. Hotel is newly renovated. Rooms and lobby first class. Ski shop in the lower level of the hotel right as you walk out to a chair lift 15 feet away. Super convenient. They provide concierge service where they store your skis and boots each night. Dry your boots and have everything waiting for you each morning. Service throughout the hotel was excellent! Also stayed at the Talisa Condos which I think they only lease out for private owners because the one we stayed in was very tired and run down. Can't say enough good things about the hotel avoid the condos.

We had 40 people staying in the houses and condos around Hotel Talisa. Our employees enjoyed being so close to the hotel and took advantage of the spa activities. The property management team was great to work with - very helpful.
