So many perks!! This hotel is ski in- ski out. The chairlift starts at an easy blue “Simba” which leads to the Gondola and another lift. Perfect access to the mountain! Venture Sports is located in the hotel and the service is exceptional. You can rent any ski equipment your heart desires. Food is overpriced for quality but you are in Vail. The staff in the restaurant is top notch and very accommodating. There is a market cafe where you can get snacks, Starbucks, crescents, muffins etc and is reasonably priced. They open at 6:30, wish they opened a little earlier for those of us traveling from the East coast. There is free hot chocolate and apple cider from 3-6 which is such a nice touch. There is also live music and Apres Sabering - champagne toast in the afternoon. It is a family friendly hotel though we didn’t have young children with us there appeared to be many activities for children. There were also s’mores by the fire at night but we were unable to attend but still a nice touch! Hotel rooms are very quiet and comfy. There is no fridge or microwave. It’s cold enough outside to keep your drinks cold and there is a microwave in the market. There is a heated outdoor pool and hot tub on site. Rooms have slippers and robes that can be worn down to the jacuzzi. There is a shuttle that will take you to Lions Head and Vail Village. We never waited more than 5 mins for the shuttle. It wasn’t very busy so one night the driver actually took us to the restaurant in Vail village that we were dining. Great customer service! The concierge was so helpful in getting us dinner reservations and offering suggestions. The staff at this hotel is very friendly and helpful. Such a great stay in Vail. Away from all the hustle and bustle but just a short ride away when you want to be in the Vail mix. I would highly recommend this hotel for your ski get away to Vail!!

This was my first time to Vail in almost 6 years (and also my first trip with my fiancé since our engagement). We looked around at a few properties for our NYE vacation, but decided on Talisa because we read that it was recently renovated, and thought, why don't we help break it in! We were (and still are) so happy we chose this resort. The rooms are awesome, and the beds are like sleeping on a cloud. A little breakdown of what we loved... FOOD: The food here is top notch. Gessner restaurant was one of the best meals we had in all of Vail. So much so, that we ate there 3 of our 8 nights, and we never usually eat at the same place twice on vacation. I highly recommend the duck. Great wine list too. Also, they have a little cafe in the hotel. most mornings we grabbed breakfast sandwiches so we could quickly get on the slopes. They're very good, as is the bison chili (my personal favorite...ate it almost every day). APRE: What's a good ski trip without enjoying the apre? Talisa has it down. A daily champagne saber (with free champagne), live music, and a really fun atmosphere. It pulls a big crowd from the hotel without it ever feeling too stuffed. BAR: The bar is really great for casual dining or just grabbing a drink. It breaks up the big lounge area and the restaurant, which is nice. Staff is awesome too. ROOMS: As stated above, the rooms are great. Comfortable beds, spacious lounging areas, gorgeous bathroom...all the things you would want and expect at 5 star hotel, and they don't disappoint. POOL: The pool is large and there are two hot tubs on the property. A creek runs behind the pool, and really adds to the enjoyment of lounging out there. SKIING: You can't put a price on how awesome it is to have a lift right outside the hotel that takes you to the mountain. You combine that with the rental shop on the floor of the hotel, and it takes all the hassle out of skiing/boarding. LOCATION: The ski in ski out is obviously amazing. The hotel is outside of both main vail and lionshead, but Talisa has shuttles that run you to and from both towns. You never wait longer than 10 minutes at the most, and it super quick rides. It is actually one of the best aspects of the hotel. You never feel as if you lack access to shopping/eating/nightlife. OVERALL: We couldn't have had a better NYE trip, and are already planning another vacation out there now that the whole mountain is open. The daily events (champagne toast, beer tasting, s'mores etc.) are really great, especially on days where you're exhausted from the mountain and don't want to leave the hotel. I almost forget to mention the staff (how rude of me). They are great and incredibly friendly, and there are a bunch of them that i look forward to seeing again.

Hotel Talisa has done an AMAZING job with their renovation. For my first time in Vail I was blown away by the beauty of this hotel. Hotel Talisa has gone above and beyond to create a unique and memorable experience for people of all likes! The food at Gessner was amazing honestly some of the best meals we had the whole time in Vail were at this restaurant, the bison burger is off the charts ordered it multiple times along with the bison chili. In addition, the black truffle tagliatelle and the caviar deviled eggs were decadent. The ski valet/concierge is outstanding plus a TWENTY STEP WALK to the ski lift makes staying at this hotel an absolute MUST if you visit Vail. Daily Aprés and plenty to keep the children occupied. This was the first of many more visits for me to Hotel Talisa!!

Although the place has just reopened and has been completely re done, my stay was great, the rooms are very comfortable, I love the decor and ambiance, as a chef, I am very picky about food and the food was delicious. My only remark is that the service at the main restaurant where breakfast is served still needs to be properly trained. They did not have their act together as far as service, obviously to a brand new opened place these sort of kinks are normal. The ski in and out and service of ski center was impecable and so convenient. The only other suggestion to the hotel is to make one of the hot pools adults only, every time I went to use it to relax after ski, it was filled with kids being kids and made me get out right away. All in all, i would stay here again. The free bus service was perfect and always on time and friendly as was most of the staff.

Hotel Tails is a beautiful hotel. The renovations look amazing so far. The staff was very friendly but also very green. Just about everywhere we went from check in to coffee in the mornings, the workers didn't seem to have the hang of things. This will just take time and easily fixable. Another example is housekeeping. We sent our laundry out only to have someone else clothing returned to us the next day. Alittle bit inconvenient. Our room was the standard hotel room with balcony. It did not have a bath tub but the shower was huge! The room itself was decorated very modern and clean. One thing we wished the room had were hooks. There really wasn't anywhere to put our coats, ski helmets...etc. The room also came with a small fridge that was stocked with usual goodies. We make sandwiches for the slopes so we unloaded fridge to use for our meats and cheese. The bathroom has a sensor so at night when you are trying to feel around in the dark for the light switch the automatic light is a welcome thought! One tip- ask for a humidifier. They will provide one and it makes a big difference. One more tip- they have a daily shuttle that goes to the grocery store if you want to stock up on snacks. It was 11:00 when we were there. The shuttles into Lionshead and Vail are very frequent. We did not have to wait long anywhere we were. back to the hotel....We had drinks at the bar and the bar tenders were friendly but the drinks were over priced and small pours. We ate dinner at the restaurant once and it was average at best. After reading other reviews maybe we just had an off night. It too was very expensive. As for skiing- I know Vail controls lift times but if you really want to get to the gondola right when it opens then you have to take the shuttle earlier instead of waiting for hotel chair to open at 8:30 which is when gondola begins. If you don't care about being up on the mountain early than the chair is the way to go. One last thing- the outdoor hot tubs are SMALL! kind of disappointing that more money was not put into updating that. After a long ski day, a nice big HOT hot tub is needed. All in all, the hotel is very pretty with great staff. I only gave it 4 stars because if it wants to be a competitor to Four Seasons and Marriott then they really need to be on point. I think with time and more experience they will be a true contender.
