Grand Hyatt Vail opened, marking the second Grand Hyatt hotel in Colorado and the first in a U.S. mountain resort destination.
The 285-room, ski-in/ski-out resort sits at the base of Vail Mountain on the banks of Gore Creek and offers guests their own ski lift, Chair 20, for convenient access to world-class skiing and snowboarding.
The hotel is located in the heart of Vail Valley within the Cascade Village neighborhood and was designed by the acclaimed LEO A DALY firm. The property completed an extensive multimillion-dollar renovation in 2018.
Influenced by the area’s surrounding mountains and history, the hotel’s 448 guest rooms and common areas offer guests an elevated modern retreat with clean lines, gentle curves and subdued patterns with rich wood, stone and leather textures. The hotel’s artwork and unique interior design touchpoints pay homage to The Southern Ute Native American tribe through local artists and artisans.
The hotel boasts more than 40,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meetings and event space as well as a 30,000-square-foot exhibit hall.
The property also features Vail Residences at Cascade Village, comprised of 84 multimillion-dollar rental homes and condominiums which will be managed by Hyatt. Prior to becoming Grand Hyatt Vail, the hotel was branded as Hotel Talisa.
The hotel offers three dining options including Gessner, the property’s signature three-meal restaurant. The menu is inspired by the mountain cuisines of the Colorado Rockies complemented by an award-winning wine program.
The Fireside Lounge overlooks Gore Creek and its vast mountain vistas with floor-to-ceiling windows. Menu options include small bites and soul-warming soups, burgers and flatbreads, as well as a hot chocolate bar and innovative cocktails.
The Market offers gourmet-to-go meals and snacks for those on the run.
The Spa at the Grand Hyatt Vail offers 10 therapy rooms featuring treatments inspired by nature, a tranquil relaxation room overlooking Gore Creek and the nearby mountains, an upscale full-service salon, spa retail boutique and more. The Spa leads out to the resort’s creek-side infinity pool, hot tubs and firepits.
The property features the freestanding 58,000-square-foot Aria Club, which will be managed by the Grand Hyatt Vail team. Offering a full array of cardio equipment, group fitness classes, personal training and an outdoor saline pool and sundeck, The Aria Club is the largest fitness facility in Vail.
Grand Hyatt Vail works with Venture Sports, which operates the ski valet and provides equipment at the hotel for all types of outdoor adventures. The location offers access to some of the most picturesque hiking and mountain biking trails as well as challenging whitewater rafting, golf and more.
