“No need to look elsewhere in Vail”
Reviewed April 5, 2010

My husband and I stayed for 5 nights for a ski trip over Easter week. We selected the Tivoli Lodge based on TripAdvisor reviews and now see no reason to stay anywhere else in Vail. The hotel is beautiful, our mountain tower room was spacious and comfortable, the service was great, and the location can't be beat. We started each day with a wonderful complimentary breakfast before walking the short distance to the Vista Bahn lift. After a day of skiing, we relaxed in one of two hot tubs while enjoying a beverage from the bar. There was live music a couple of nights and on the other evenings we were entertained by the antics of Speedy, the owners' chocolate lab. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and the owners went out of their way to make us feel at home. I've always considered Vail the best ski resort there is and now I'd have to say that Tivoli Lodge is the very best in ski accommodations.

We typically stay in Lionshead but decided to opt for something in the Village for a quick Easter weekend trip. We found the Tivoli to be a great option and I plan to return in the summer and hopefully again next winter. The lobby is as inviting as any and with a hot tub (two) located just outside it gets a lot of traffic from hot tubbers and apres-ski folk looking for a beverage. Leather chairs, large couches make for a truly relaxing time. One reviewer commented on the young staff not being real knowledgeable on non-skiing things to do but we found the staff to be quite helpful. The hotel puts out a very nice breakfast spread, ranging from breakfast burrito's, waffles, breads of all sorts to cereal and fruit.
Travelers today seem enamored with bedding and it is in this area that I would suggest ownership look into upgrading. Our sheets appeared to be old (worn) and my pillow wasn't much of anything. Rooms however are spacious and clean and a simple upgrading of bedding would elevate the entire experience.
From the Tivoli, you can be in the heart of the Village in three minutes and that makes it ideal. That puts you just minutes from many great restaurants and I'd suggest Up the Creek as a place to try. It's hard to go wrong with restaurant selections.
Back to Tivoli, we used the business center, fitness facility and ski valet and found all to be nice.

I stayed at the Tivoli this week with my teenage daughter after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. My opinion is that the lodge is nice but definitely only rates about three and a half stars. Our room was very average with dark colors and no artwork on the walls. The bathrooms were the nicest feature with granite counters and a good sized bathtub. The service was medicore with no porters to help with our luggage and the front desk is staffed with young people possessing very little knowledge as to non-skiing activities available in Vail. There was a guiitarist playing apres ski in the lobby on our last night there which was a nice touch. All the staff were friendly, it was just that there wasnt the service I have come to expect when paying the kind of rates they charge.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Tivoli Lodge in Vail. We chose Tivoli based on reviews read on the Trip Advisor website, and to say we were not disappointed is an understatement. We had a beautiful spacious room on the 5th floor with large balcony overlooking the mountain - a truly spectacular view. The staff are amazing, friendly and make you feel like family, but the true highlight of Tivoli Lodge is the owners Bob and Diane. Diane came to greet us on our arrival into our room, proceeding to tell us about the lodge and Vail and pointed us in the direction of their home (within the lodge), inviting us in and letting us know just to knock if we need anything. Bob and Dianes dogs are part of the Tivoli family and go out of their way to greet you in the foyer each morning at breakfast to say hello. Bob is also a regular at breakfast each morning and really enjoys chatting with guests to find out their plans for the day and ensure everyone is enjoying themselves, without being intrusive. I can honestly say we felt completely at home at the Tivoli and part of the family. The lodge is beautiful, based right at the bottom of Vail Mountain - could not ask for a better location, the complimentary breakfast served each day is a massive spread fit for a king. We also had free internet access within the business centre and weren't charged for the local calls we needed to make within the room. My husband and I fell in love with Vail, but staying at the Tivoli just made the holiday even more amazing. The staff genuinely seem to love working at the lodge and its not surprising with Bob and Diane being so outwardly warm and welcoming, making your stay one to remember and making Vail and Tivoli Lodge a place you will want to come back to again.

My sister and I stayed here for 5 nights in January. The service is exceptional, friendly, helpful, welcoming. Good breakfast included, lovely rooms, including the "smallest" which has everything you need. Location is fantastic, with a good price. Ski valet service at the hotel and free chocolate chip cookies at the end of the ski day! Vail Athletic Club two blocks away for a steam and massage. I already booked my return trip for December 2010. Tivoli will be an annual stay as long as the owners remain the same.

We stayed for 6 nights as part of a ski holiday. This is a cosy Family Lodge. Staff & owner were very friendly.Great location with Valet ski service & close to village. Can ski back to hotel if snow is good enough. Also has a great breakfast. Would stay again. Only problem was we had a faulty TV that was replaced as soon as we called front desk. However there was still a problem with the replacement TV. The manager said it would be replaced the next day but they never retured to exchange it for the remaining 3 days of our stay.

We just returned from a long weekend skiing in Vail. The Tivoli Lodge is simply the best hotel i have stayed at. It starts with the staff everyone from the front desk, BV behind the bar, the staff who helped with the skiis, the people who helped with breakfast, even the owners dog, were all fantastic. The location is great a very short walk to the chair lifts and to the main Vail shops. The rooms (we had a mountain view) were spacious and spotless. The free breakfast was a perfect start to the day.The hotel is not cheap but would stay there on my next visit to Vail.
