The hotel is set along the tranquil Gore Creek, just steps away from the beautiful forested mountainside, perfect for active and meditative activities. Hotel Talisa is Vail’s only true ski-in/ski-out luxury resort, with chair 20 on property, guests have easy access to Vail Mountain. This gorgeous location and ski valet offers visitors a first-class experience with the shortest journey from room to slopes.  No need to carry luggage or stand in line, you step out of the room and you’re on a lift. Also, for those not solely interested in skiing there are  a host of managed activities available including mountain biking, kayaking, hiking, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and more.

“We have an unparalleled setting and location and through this extensive renovation, have reimagined the property into one of the elite destination ski resorts in North America.  The amount of detail and thought put into every corner of the resort will wow even the most discerning guest,” said Andres Szita, Chairman of Laurus Corporation. “Our focus on that guest experience is paramount at the resort.  And that experience comes from the details.”

“We are excited to welcome guests to experience our stunning hotel following a complete renovation,” said John Garth, Area Managing Director. “Our team is dedicated to providing our guests with truly unforgettable visits and helping them create timeless memories with our transformed and family-friendly programming. Our mantra is ‘Moments Worth Collecting’ and we look forward to honoring that day in and day out.”


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 authentic flavors and dishes from those countries bordering the Alps. Specialty menu items include Mussel & Foraged Mushrooms, Colorado Rack of Lamb, sourced from locally-based Superior Farms, Black Truffle Tagliatelle Pasta and Duck Confit and Wild Boar Sausage Cassoulet. At the center of the property, The Fireside Bar and Lounge draws in visitors and guests to enjoy Après Everyday year-round. Here, guests can indulge in après favourites like Bison Chili and Lobster Crostini while listening to live music overlooking Gore Creek and Vail Mountain. There is a market that offers guests specialty gourmet provisions and beverages perfect for an early morning start or a mid-afternoon treat.

Following in the footsteps of traditional alpine spas, the Spa at Hotel Talisa offers the chance to enjoy both the natural splendour and healing powers of the surrounding mountains.  The treatments include High-Altitude Adjustment Ritual and body scrubs infused with botanicals and access to the resort’s 58,000 square foot adjoining athletic club.
