Hyatt Expands Into The Heart Of The Colorado Rockies

Hyatt Hotels Corporation has opened the luxury Grand Hyatt Vail, marking the second Grand Hyatt hotel in Colorado and the first in a U.S. mountain resort destination. The 285-room ski-in/ski-out resort sits at the base of the iconic Vail Mountain on the banks of Gore Creek and offers guests their own ski lift, Chair 20, for access to world-class skiing and snowboarding.

Located in the heart of Vail Valley within the Cascade Village neighborhood, the hotel features bold, vibrant architecture inspired by its scenic locale. Designed by Leo A Daly, Grand Hyatt Vail completed an extensive multimillion-dollar renovation in 2018. Influenced by the area’s surrounding mountains and history, the hotel’s contemporary guestrooms and common areas offer guests an elevated modern retreat with clean lines, gentle curves and subdued patterns with rich wood, stone and leather textures, according to the company. The hotel’s artwork and interior design touchpoints pay homage to The Southern Ute Native American tribe through local artists and artisans.

The property offers more than 30,000 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor meetings and event space; Vail Residences at Cascade Village, comprising 84 multimillion-dollar rental homes and condominiums which will be managed by Hyatt; three dining options; the freestanding 58,000-sq.-ft. Aria Club, which will be managed by the Grand Hyatt Vail team; and The Spa at the Grand Hyatt Vail, which offers 10 therapy rooms. The Spa leads out to the resort’s creek-side infinity pool, hot tubs and firepits.

Prior to becoming Grand Hyatt Vail, the hotel was branded as Hotel Talisa.
