TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 6 days ago

This hotel has a ski lift direct to vail resort which is impossible to beat. They have a rental location and a ski valet right by the lift which is extraordinarily convenient. That point alone may almost be worth the luxury price you pay, however we had extremely mixed experiences otherwise. The staff was friendly but the front desk staff seemed to need more training. We received 3-4 different responses at different times about whether we could have a rollaway in our room. The rooms and the main communal spaces are remodeled and nice. However the entire spa and gym area is under construction and has been relocated during construction. Unfortunately all the signs for the spa still point you to a floor that is off limits. The pool and hot tub are outside and less than pleasant to use in 2 degree weather. The elevator to our room was out of order and we and all the other guests in our wing were forced to use the utility elevator. It may just have been our wing, but the hotel design is confusing. I think we needed to maneuver through about 8 twists and turns to find our room. The restaurant and bar are good. The bar has a nice selection of local beers to try. The restaurant has a very solid breakfast buffet and they will make nice omelettes. In total a good experience but for the price I would have expected them to have it more together.

The service at the hotel was awful. Every morning the Market downstairs ran out of food. The staff had no idea when new muffins or yogurt would be available. The prices were at outrageous - $6 for a water bottle. I understand a business needs to make a profit but this absurd. The rooms are very small and we did not have enough of hot water to take shower. The offered hot chocolate and hot cider to the kids at 3 pm, however every day they ran out of cookies less than 5 minutes. I would not offer cookies if you are not going another tray of cookies out. I'm very disappointed in this hotel. We will not stay here again. The only positive in the hotel in the ski in and ski out.

We stayed at the hotel Talisa for the first week in February. We were there for a conference, so we stayed with that group. We have been to Vail many times and usually stayed in Lionshead because of the ease of getting up the mountain via the Gondola. We were a bit worried about staying further west of everything, so the Talisa had a lot to prove to us! :) We found out that it had just undergone a huge renovation, so we were skeptical about that also. From the time we pulled up to the front entrance until we left, we were unbelievably pleased with the whole experience. The interaction with staff from the front desk to the little Market Place inside the hotel was great. They all made us feel like they would do anything to make sure that we were happy and had the best vacation possible. I will try to make this review as brief as possible, but I think it is important to point out their positives (and also a couple of negatives) so that you will give this hotel a try. The ski valet area was perfect. There is someone waiting there to help you when you arrive to help you get your rentals (through Adventure if you stay at the hotel) or even take your own equipment to store and have ready for you every day. You walk in in the morning, they get your boots (will help you or your kids get them on and off if needed), and then they get your skis and poles and set them outside by the lift for you to grab. There is no carrying them in and out every day. There are plenty of benches and baskets underneath them to leave your shoes and anything else that you don’t want to take on the mountain with you. There is a space toward the back of the room that has a fire, cider, water and even a TV to come back to after skiing. IMPORTANT: To get to the lift you literally walk out the automatic doors and walk a few steps and there is the lift! There is a lift ticket office right there also, so no need to go into Vail village or Lionshead to get your Epic pass! The lift takes you up and you ski just a short distance to the Pride Express lift that gets you to where you can ski to just about anywhere on the mountain. The rooms were beautifully decorated and like the other reviewers stated: plenty of drawer space for clothes, a mini fridge, and lots of outlets to plug in all of your electronics. We were happy to find that! I felt like the bathroom had enough counter space. If you had a lot of extras, there is a shelf under the sinks where you can leave it until you need it. We had a room with a Mountain View by the stream. It was lovely! The sound of the stream was so relaxing. There is also a path that goes along the stream where you can take a nice walk to Lionshead or Vail Village. We did this several times and really enjoyed it, especially after the fresh snow we got. The Market Place had amazing homemade scones every morning, breakfast sandwiches to grab and go, lovely fruit plates and specialty coffee drinks with the choice of soy, coconut and almond milk for those with allergies. They offer a homemade soup every day and they were wonderful! The restaurant actually provides all the food in the Market Place so it doesn’t disappoint. The menu in the restaurant was pricey but we found that it was worth it. I am gluten free and the chef went way out of his way to make sure that my meal was perfect! He even came out to talk with us and assure us that he would do whatever possible to make our experience enjoyable. The herb roasted chicken was delicious! It is a must try. The Talisa also has a continuous shuttle from the hotel to Lionshead and Vail village all day. The longest wait you have is about 10 minutes. The negatives: I like the other reviewer hate to list these but I feel it is important to mention. In the end, hopefully it will help the Talisa with working out some of the kinks. We had the same problem with the hot water being really spotty. We never had to take a cold shower, but we had to wait quite a while at times before we could get the hot water. I think they are working on this because they actually turned off the water one late evening to try and work with it, so I think this problem will be solved quickly. There was a problem with the elevator also. It was really slow and only one worked the whole time that we were there. Again, it didn’t really affect our stay but it was a bit of a nuisance. They advertise a ‘cookie pass’ for apres ski paired with a hot chocolate bar at 3:00. Well, the cookie pass adds up to about 2 plates of chocolate chip cookies. I was only able to grab a cookie one of the days that I was there. By 3:10, all the cookies were gone. I complained and one of the waitresses offered to take me to the Market place and get me a cookie. Again, they were trying to make my stay as happy as possible. I talked to one of the managers and told him that it would be okay if they didn’t advertise it as something ‘special’ or make smaller cookies so that most of the people could grab one! A couple of days the guy at the bar said that was it...he could have cared less. Can you imagine taking your kids there and coming up one cookie short!? Now for the negative that really affected us...the rooms are HOT! Like the other reviewer said, you have to turn the heat completely off. We tried at first to leave the thermostat on 65 (the lowest you could set) but the heat kept coming on anyway. Fortunately we were in a room with a balcony and we left a window and the door cracked all day! That was the only way to try and sleep. I feel like the Talisa will get all of these little problems solved. I am sure that we will stay there on our next visit.

We stayed at the recently remodeled Hotel Talisa last weekend. We were impressed upon initial arrival as we've stayed many, many times at Cascade Resort over the years, however, our first impression immediately went downhill fast upon checkin. After fighting hours of traffic coming from Denver, we finally arrive on Friday at 7pm. At checkin, they told me they had me down for one king room and that I only had 1 adult listed in my reservation. We are a family of 4 with two teenagers. I had booked the reservation over the phone and requested two queens. Luckily, I had my email confirmation showing the two requested queens, however, I'm not sure why the woman had put down one adult? At either rate, they told me the hotel was completely sold out and they only had the one king room left We were freaking out, envisioning sleeping in our car or driving back down to Denver. The thing that really irked me was how they made me FEEL about their mistake. They really made me feel badly about it, like it was my fault. I finally told them (after having to show them proof of the original confirmation) that they needed to figure it out - either put us in a larger room or give us two hotel rooms. They grudgingly gave us two hotel rooms. Finally, we were shown to our rooms and we tried to put that bad unwelcome behind us. I have to say the rooms are really lovely. You will be impressed. They've done a fantastic job decorating. Everything is mountain modern with teal and neutral colors that are on trend now. There are plenty of drawers and a mini fridge is provided. It's an honor bar but you can take the items out of the fridge w/o cost to you and put in your own beverages. The bathroom is tastefully done however, it was definitely designed by a man in that there was hardly any counter space, zero shelves and zero drawers. I had to store most of my toiletries/makeup in the bedroom. One other little complaint... Saturday after skiing and apres, around 5:30pm when probably the entire hotel is showering before dinner, we had zero hot water. We literally took cold showers (not fun). We called to complain and they were already aware of this. Perhaps it's a daily occurrence but they really need to figure that one out. At $750/night, I think everyone deserves a hot shower. Back to the bedroom, the bed, linens, and pillow are all of very high quality and very comfortable. What was not comfortable, however, was the room temperature. Our daughters were on the 4th floor, we were on the 5th, and both of our rooms were terribly hot at night. We turned our heat completely off but for some reason, they took away the cranks on the windows so you are not able to open the windows. We noticed some rooms had balconies which you would easily be able to open up those doors but not the regular hotel rooms. Sure hope they allow you to open the windows come summer. The bed had a huge gorgeous duvet on it that would be wonderful to get under in a room of 60 degrees. Our room never got below 72 degrees. Because of this, we all slept horribly. That's it for the negatives (sorry about that but had to be honest), now on to the positives. The lobby is a great gathering spot with live music every afternoon. They also had free hot cocoa for the kids and champagne for the adults. We loved that touch. There are two hot tubs so if one is busy, try the other. We ate at Gessner restaurant and we were blown away by the quality there! Very pricey, like much of Vail, but unlike other fine dining restaurants in Vail (we've eaten at them all), the quality and service at Gessner actually matched the price. Imagine that! Highly recommend. The ski valet is awesome! It's so nice to have the chairlift right outside and not have to wait in Gondola One line. Our boots were dry and warm when stored overnight. They guys working here do a fabulous job and we experienced the best customer service of the entire weekend. Overall, I think once they work out a few of their issues, this will be a hotel to consider in Vail. They'll get there. In the meantime, perhaps not worth the price quite yet. We will give it another chance but maybe next year.

This hotel is located at the west end of Vail resort. The hotel has been completely refurbished, and many of the touches are quite nice. There are some things that the hotel does very well, including (in most cases) really wanting to be responsive to guest requests. One of the best features of the hotel is the ability to ski in and out. They also have a great system that allows guests to rent their ski equipment right on premises. At the end of the day, you simply hand your skis to the attendant at the entrance to the hotel, take your boots off and hand them to someone who puts them on a dryer, and up to your room you go. Really fantastic service. The staff at the ski shop are really great and service oriented. They are also knowledgeable. The hotel has struggled with their elevators, and we also experienced the same issue. Instead, we were re-routed to the service elevator to go upstairs. Not ideal, but got the job done. We did not rent a car, and instead used the shuttle service provided by the hotel to go into Vail Village. The drivers were pleasant and responsive any time we requested a lift. We rented the Gore Creek Suite, and it is large and quite nice. There are still some finishes there that they need to fix, including the fact that the living room is quite dark. But overall, a very nice suite with a King bedroom and lovely bath, and a separate bedroom with two queens and nice bath. It would be a very pleasant choice for a family. The maid service was excellent and extremely thorough. We really appreciated it. Overall, a very nice experience with a few hiccups that made it not quite perfect. Having said that, I would recommend this property to people staying in Vail.
