Vail Residences at Hotel Talisa
Ranked #11 of 41 Specialty Lodging in Vail
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 16, 2009

We have stayed at the Vail Cascade hotel in the past and this time stayed in the condos. We had a 1 bedroom condo and it was lovely, clean, and a very nice stay. Plus, it had it's own garage so parking was very easy and free. The Gore Creek hiking/biking trail was nearby, as were the spa and fitness center.

My family and I stayed at this hotel for five days and had a great time. The rooms atre really nice and the lobby of the hotel is beautiful! There is a warm fireplace when you walk in with music playing at the fireside bar. There are two hot tubs and a pool all heated and it is grat to go swimming in next to a creek and snow coved mountain. The view is amazing! I love that there is a chairlift right there in the hotel . You have to take a 30 second walk from the hotel to the chairlift and you can either ride the chairlift or ski (when there is a lot of snow) down right back to the hotel. The skiing was great too. The resturaunt there Chap's has a tasty, but expensive buffet breakfast. We complained about the ice machine being loud during the night and we got 6 free buffet breakfasts! The staff at the hotel are very nice and helpful. Vail village had good resturaunts and shops so make sure to go there. Lionshead village was under construction when we went so we werent able to go there. A short drive away is beaver creek village and it is fun to go there and ice skate and look around there. Also in the hotel there is a movie theater with popcorn and everything. So this hotel is a great one that has class, style, and convienence. I would definatley reccomend staying there if your going to Vail.

The condominiums are not child friendly. They are managed by people who do not understand child safety issues and do not provide well for them. They are far from the children ski schools and require multiple van trips. We were blamed for breakage that we did not cause for the first time in twenty years of staying in condos in the region.

We stayed at the Vail Cascade for a week last February. The hotel itself has nice if not extraordinary rooms. We had a balcony looking at the mountain and the private chairlift. The rooms are a bit dark, the bathrooms nothing special.

They have outdoor hot tubs that are nice. They could have housekeeping check them a bit more often.

The breakfast buffet in the restaurant is excellent. They have both a hot and cold buffet depending on whether you want just fresh fruit , cereal and a bagel or whether you want pancakes or eggs. It is really good!

The concierge, especially Sharon, are very helpful and know both the mountain and the town well.

They have a great spa across the street that has everything, gym, aerobics, basketball court, tennis, pool, and complete spa services. This is a very nice facility for sure.

One of the best things about this place is it has its own chair lift. There is a ski concierge that takes your skis and boots and stores them for you after skiing each day. They have boot warmers and are very efficient at getting your skis for you. Then walk outside and get on the chair. When you're done skiing at the end of the day you can ski down a long catwalk or download on the chair. This couldn't be better!

Since the hotel is a mile or so from Vail Village and maybe 3/4 of a mile from Lionshead there is a free shuttle service which seems to run every 5 minutes.

Overall a great place.
