Tivoli Lodge is so comfortable and the staff so friendly that we felt like we were staying with friends. It was relaxing. We had a room with a king bed, fireplace, and water jets in the shower. The room was spacious enough to comfortably accommodate two people and all of our ski clothes and regular clothes. We had a nice view of the slopes from our room, so it was easy to check on the weather and the mountain first thing upon waking in the morning. Our bathroom was also large and well appointed. The jets in the shower were a nice feature. You could have water falling from above, like usual, as well as straight at you from the wall. There was also a large soaking tub, although neither of us used it.

The ski storage room and ski valet were very convenient. At the end of the day, you ski down past the lift and probably could even get to the door of the hotel during a time of heavy snow (but we ended up walking about 50 feet) and go in a side door of the hotel. There are racks for your skis and poles/boards right inside the door, and benches where you can sit to take your boots off. The ski valet takes your equipment and puts it in the storage room, where it stays warm and dry until you arrive to ask for it the next morning. The floor in this whole area is heated underneath the rug, so little chunks of snow don't stick around long. Even if you do happen to step on one, it's not that bad because you're otherwise nicely warm. The one caveat about this area is that I did notice a hotel room or two right across from it. I imagine that these are less desirable rooms just because you'd have people banging around in boots continually. The ski valets were friendly and very helpful, rushing to take skis or poles the minute they saw us coming through the door.

In the morning, you do have to walk with your equipment to the lift because it's uphill and you have to cross a plowed road, but it is a very short walk. The hotel is one of the closest buildings to the Riva Bahn lift.

There is a refreshment table in the lobby during the day. They take it down at 4pm, at which point it only contains water. But during the day, you can get coffee or hot water for tea, cocoa, or apple cider. It's a nice way to warm up. You can also sit in the lobby on the comfy sofas and chairs, and there is a big hot fire along one wall. There are also big windows through which you can see the slopes. It's really cozy.

Outside the wall of windows in the back of the lobby, there are two hot tubs. I loved these and visited every afternoon. You can even exit the hot tub, walk or roll in the snow that's just beyond them, and then get back in. The bartender comes out to take drink orders. There is an extremely calm and friendly chocolate lab named Speed who belongs to the owners and who spends lots of time in the lobby and out by the hot tubs. He's good with kids (sits calm and still for the kids who want to pet or pose with him, and was patient with the really little kids who just screamed with excitement and joy to see him) and happy to sit by himself or be petted.

Breakfast in the hotel was delicious. We ate there most mornings. It is about $10 for cold food plus oatmeal, and about $15 for cold food plus all the hot food. I thought this was fair pricing, and the food was tasty and kept me full until lunch time, which is always important for when you are skiing. The servers were all very friendly and greeted us in the mornings like they'd known us forever.

Parking was free, which was very nice.

Room Tip: Avoid staying on the first floor across from the ski valet room.

Loved this hotel. Great, friendly, helpful staff. Great location to lifts and Vail Village. Rooms were comfortable and spacious. Loved the ski valet service. Because we were so close to the lifts we were able to get lots of runs in before the lifts got crowed in the morning and we skied back to the hotel at the end of the day. Great breakfast buffet. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the village side can be a little noisy.

Stayed in Tivoli, skied 5 days and it was the best ski holiday we have ever enjoyed. Warm and happy staff and management make you feel comfortable and welcome. That feeling was shared by all of the guests we met during our stay. Location is excellent in Vail Village, close to lifts, restaurants, and shopping. In room Wi-FI made communication with friends and office a simple matter. We LOVE the Tivoli and look forward to another visit soon.

We stayed at Tivoli Lodge for 4 nights the week before President's Day 2012. The hotel was fantastic. The decor was cozy with rustic charm. The staff were all extremely helpful and friendly. We skied three days and the ski valet service was great. The location is ideal, being only a five minute walk to both the Riva Bahn and Vista Bahn express lifts. We were able to have a great breakfast each morning at 7:00 AM and get to the lift by the time they started operating at 8:30 AM. The restaurants and shops of Vail Village are all within easy walking distance of the hotel as well. We met the owner and his dogs while we were at the hotel and he was both friendly and proud of his property. If and when we return to Vail, we will certainly wish to stay at Tivoli again. Furthermore, we have and will recommend it to others.

We stayed at the Tivoli twice this season (2011-2012). Lodge staff was very friendly and attentive. Location is very convenient to the Golden Peak Riva chair and Vista Bahn.

While Tivoli is at the Golden Peak side, the Vail in-town bus stop is literally at Tivoli's doorstep which makes it easy to go to Lionshead or the far end of Vail Village. We would take the bus to go to dinner and then enjoy the walk back to the lodge after dinner.

If you are a pet lover, Speed (Chocolate Lab) the house mascot will greet you. If you are fortunate enough, the lady of the house Jeepster (Sheltie) may make an appearance?

Room Tip: Mountain view rooms are exceptional!
