Scout loves

  • A central location that’s practically ski-in (when the conditions are right) and not far from the gondola.
  • Live music in the lobby most afternoons to mingle with other skiers.
  • Complimentary cookies and hot drinks in the lobby.
  • Warm Colorado hospitality throughout, including from the live-in owners and their adorable chocolate labrador.
  • Fresh cookies, hot chocolate, cider, tea and coffee is on offer in the lobby each afternoon

Scout tips

  • The valet will carry your skis to the gondola for you, you just have to ask.
  • All rooms have a fridge, microwave and wet bar for added convenience.
  • Some of the premium rooms have balconies.
  • Tower rooms are more spacious with lots of windows.


Tivoli Lodge has been on the Vail scene since the ’60s, but a complete rebuild in 2006 meant it suddenly shot from being a laid-back ski lodge to a hotel that competes with the best in Vail.

Fortunately what remains is the same friendly ski-lodge atmosphere while guests now have a top-of-the-range experience. For instance, the owners (the Lazier family of Indy Car racing fame) invested heavily in the technology in the hotel. Each room’s temperature and lighting can be controlled from the front desk, ensuring a toasty warm room for your arrival.

If you’re a light sleeper you may have just found your perfect hotel. The walls of each room are so thick that your neighbors could be having a raucous party and you wouldn’t even notice. The rooms, including the bathrooms, are generously sized – not only by Vail standards, but for hotels anywhere. Premium rooms have views of the slopes and mountains that stretch up from the base of the hotel. They’re done in a contemporary rustic style – think rich reds, leather and dark woods. In fact, the decor of the hotel was designed by Diane Lazier herself.

Unlike the other big hotels in Vail, Tivoli doesn’t have its own restaurant or in-house spa, which given the number of restaurants within walking distance, it shouldn't matter at all. There are a couple of outdoor hot tubs (just outside the hotel lounge area) and they serve up a big skiers’ buffet every morning in the lobby, including hot items. There is a small gym and guests can use the Vail Vitality Center, which has a full health club and spa. The ski locker room has heated boot racks and slippers are provided.

So while it’s lacking in some facilities, it’s the little luxuries, big comfortable rooms, excellent service and relaxed atmosphere that have loyal visitors returning year after year. Not to mention the friendly dog, appropriately named Speed.

The Tivoli Lodge is an ideal option for a Vail ski vacation, particularly for those who enjoy a traditional lodge-feel and convenient location within Vail village.

Who should stay here

Tivoli is perfect for guests who want a premium hotel that’s central to everything in Vail, and who love a more relaxed lodge-like atmosphere.
