Tivoli is a 5 star first class hotel! I would recommend them to anyone coming to Vail no matter the season.

Room Tip: Get the ski slop view!

We stayed at the Tivoli quite a few times over the past three years and it was consistantly absolutely fabulous. We just called up to reserve our first trip of the season in mid-December and management has changed, rates have doubled and breakfast is not anymore free. So we are headed back to Pepi's. What a shame.

I read with disappointment your comments on your recent phone call to reserve your December stay with us. The Lazier family, who still own the Lodge after more than 40 years, has indeed brought in new management to assist them with running the property. While our rates have increased over last year’s, we are still priced well within the market for our type of property. And given your kind words about the Lodge, we feel we still offer a tremendous value for our guests.

We have completely revamped and upgraded our previously free breakfast, and have hired a Chef to insure the quality exceeds our guest expectations. In doing so, we felt it appropriate to charge for this as do most of the other hotels in Vail.

We hope you will again stay with us and enjoy all we provide for our guests.

We have stayed in the Tivoli Lodge once or twice during the ski season since its re-opening in 2006. Last year we even celebrated my 60th birthday in January taking all our children, grandchildren, and friends for a long ski week.
We have enjoyed the ambience of the hotel, made possible through the owner's family living in the building and being there for any issues which might arise. The building and rooms are beautiful as befits a new luxury construction and the location is ideal, a block from either the Vista Bahn of Golden Peaks chair life.
We were very disappointed this season to see the prices almost double together with the elimination of the prior inclusive breakfast in the lobby. The desk reception is corporate and poorly trained.
After spending many years and memories here, we will have to move on as yet another American institution becomes a corporate extension of business and greed rather than a wonderful jewel of a hotel where even the owner's dog was on a "first name" basis with the guests.
At these prices, one could stay at the Four Seasons or Ritz Carlton, far more luxurious with much greater level of amenities.
Sad.....

I was sad to read your review concerning the Lodge, and was unable to discern if your comments were regarding a recent experience or are based on last January’s stay.

The Lazier family, which has owned the Lodge for more than 40 years, still lives on property and enjoys meeting the guests in the lobby each day. Speed, our Chocolate Labrador, is still in residence and befriends most of our guests during their stay.

Our prices have increased over previous years and when compared to other hotels of similar quality and location, provides an exceptional value and experience for our guests. Breakfast, which has been substantially upgraded with the hiring of a professional chef, is now an additional charge and is consistent with providing a much improved product. Our Front Desk staff is drawn from the local area or Colorado ski resorts, and work hard to provide friendly and personalized service for all of our guests.

I hope you will again visit the Lodge and enjoy it as you have in the past.

We were there in the off season. We had a very large Mountain View room with a fireplace. It was great!

Room Tip: No restaurant, but has a decent breakfast buffet.

The Tivoli Lodge offers a wonderful experience beginning with the excellent staff and welcoming lobby. The rooms are beautifully furnished with bathtubs that my 4yo could swim in. The autumn view was breathtaking and the back lawn was enjoyable.
A great time was had by all!

We have traveled the world and always rely on Trip Advisor.....From the minute we arrived Tivoli Lodge wrapped its arms around us. The detail in the room design is impressive. The location, the view out our balcony, and the fireplace were amazing. The staff was so professional and friendly. Thank you for a beautiful stay. We truely look forward to a future trip to Tivoli.

Room Tip: We stayed in #208 with an amazing view of Vail Mountain.
