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.
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.
How to Get There
Hotel Talisa was the perfect setting for our annual sales conference. We had rave reviews from the roughly 200 attendees. Great setting and great rooms. Your team did a great job running our events and the food and the service was outstanding! We hope to repeat with Hotel Talisa in future years.
Best hotel in Vail, great location and facilities. Staff can’t do enough for you. Ski in ski out. Shuttle bus service is excellent. Bar and bar staff are excellent great fun and great cocktails. Only place to stay in Vail for me.
First the disclaimer, if you have to ask how much things cost, you probably should not be skiing in Vail. With lift prices pushing $200/day, and simple drinks on the ski slope at $8 a bottle, staying in Vail is not for the weak of heart (or wallet).
So with that in mind, we needed 4 bedrooms and taking hotel rooms would have broken our budget but we discovered these Residence and they not only exceeded expectations but NOT ONE PERSON in our group had anything bad to say - in fact, everyone said they would definitely stay again!
Location location location. While we had a rental car, Vail (and these residences) are designed to be car free. there is free shuttle service, you can also just walk to the chair lift. You can EVEN leave your skis within feet of the lift!! Great ski shop at lift 20! great ski tuning.
Everything in the condo worked perfectly. We couldn't find laundry detergent for the washing machine, called the concierge and within 5 minutes, someone arrived with a box! I can't speak highly enough about the bed comfort, the cleanliness, nice large bathrooms and ample living room
The condos (or residences) come in two levels Silver and Gold. We chose Gold - but were told the primary difference was the decor and how recently the buildings were remodeled. We don;t now what Silver brings, but given how well we were taken care of, I'd be comfortable taking any residence the Hotel staff (phone staff) recommended.
PS if you book your lift ticket more than a week in advance, you can get a discount on the website.
Beautiful mountain surroundings out each window in the rentals at Vail Residence Hotel Takisha. Conveniently located just West of Lionshead Village. The home we stayed in was very comfortable and spacious (4 bedroom 4 bath). With top of the line appliances and furnishings. The hotel offer daily cleaning, shuttle service to Vail villages. Wash and dryers and WiFi in each home. We love that we had full access to all the hotel amenities and Aria Athletic Club and Spa! We plan to visit again very soon!
Two families shared a residence at the Hotel Talisa and our home was beautiful, modern and absolutely spotless. Staff could not have been friendlier and all tried to be as helpful as possible. We prepared all of our meals at our residence or went out so can not speak to the food/restaurants, but overall, this is a lovely new resort. Only complaint is regarding the shuttle service: the lack of snow caused the Cascade lift to be closed for the majority of our stay, and the excessive number of people trying to get on the shuttles at the end of the day from Lions head and Vail village was absolutely overwhelming. The number of shuttles was far too few for the massive amount of people trying to get on. Also, when part of our family had to leave the residence to get a shuttle from the Lobby to Denver Airport at 5 am, there was no reservation option to get from the residence to the lobby as the shuttle used for the transporting around the hotel property did not start until 7 a.m, so the only option was to call for a taxi or an Uber to take them down the hill. To be fair, the resort had just opened and I attribute these things to 'working out the kinks'. Special note -- the majority of the staff was extremely nice and accommodating. The head concierge Steve was VERY helpful as we looked for reservations for our large group for dinner, and Julie was as well. And the special events team was great as we looked into reserving a room for a large family dinner. Ski rental staff also went out of their way to help us with all our needs. Definitely stay here if you get the chance! Just note that it's early and a few kinks still being worked out. Highly recommend!
