The Luxury Collection®, part of Marriott International, Inc., today announced that Hotel Talisa, a top luxury ski resort in Vail, Colorado, has joined the brand’s ensemble of world-renowned hotels and resorts deeply rooted in their destinations. Introducing Vail’s only true ski-in/ski-out luxury resort, Hotel Talisa is the newest addition to The Luxury Collection’s portfolio of diverse hotels in North America.
“Vail is one of the most luxurious and thrilling mountain towns in the U.S., making it a natural fit for The Luxury Collection and our Global Explorers who seek authentic experiences and connections to all types of destinations,” said Anthony Ingham, Global Brand Leader, The Luxury Collection. “This latest addition to our Luxury Collection portfolio marks our first ski destination property in North America as we continue to expand our footprint in captivating destinations across the U.S.”
Vail Hotel Partners LLC, a private real estate investment firm, has invested over $65 million in renovating and rebranding the hotel. Formerly known as the Vail Cascade Resort and Spa, the 285-room property will reposition as Vail’s newest luxury Resort. Hotel Talisa remains under the management of Two Roads Hospitality, the largest owner and operator of independent hotels, resorts and residences in the United States.
In addition to downhill and cross-country skiing and snowboarding, guests of Hotel Talisa can take part in a wide array of year-round activities including mountain biking, kayaking, hiking, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and more.
“We are excited to combine forces with the prestige of The Luxury Collection brand to welcome guests to experience Hotel Talisa, Vail’s newest luxury ski-in, ski-out resort, “said John Garth, Area Managing Director of Two Roads Hospitality. “Our mantra is ‘Moments Worth Collecting,’ and as a Luxury Collection property, Hotel Talisa offers guests unique experiences that are authentic to the destination.”
A unique and cherished expression of its location, The Luxury Collection’s Hotel Talisa offers three culinary venues, each sourcing ingredients from local Colorado ranchers and farmers. Gessner, the hotel’s full-service restaurant, features cuisine inspired by the Colorado Rockies as well as Vail’s roots in European culture with globally-inspired flavors and dishes from those countries bordering the Alps. At the center of the property, The Fireside Lounge draws in visitors and guests to enjoy the property’s “Après Everyday,” year-round. The Market offers guests specialty gourmet provisions and beverages perfect for an early morning start or a mid-afternoon treat.
New to the property, The Spa at Hotel Talisa follows in the footsteps of lclassicalpine spas, embracing both the natural splendor and healing powers of the surrounding mountain and creek. Treatments include Elevate Your Altitude ritual and body scrubs infused with botanicals and wildflowers found near Vail Mountain’s storied hiking trails. In addition, hotel guests have access to a new fitness center as well as the resort’s 58,000 square foot adjoining athletic club. Hotel Talisa also boasts over 40,000 square feet of beautifully appointed meeting and event space, the largest in the Vail Valley.
