We typically stay in Lionshead but decided to opt for something in the Village for a quick Easter weekend trip. We found the Tivoli to be a great option and I plan to return in the summer and hopefully again next winter. The lobby is as inviting as any and with a hot tub (two) located just outside it gets a lot of traffic from hot tubbers and apres-ski folk looking for a beverage. Leather chairs, large couches make for a truly relaxing time. One reviewer commented on the young staff not being real knowledgeable on non-skiing things to do but we found the staff to be quite helpful. The hotel puts out a very nice breakfast spread, ranging from breakfast burrito's, waffles, breads of all sorts to cereal and fruit.
Travelers today seem enamored with bedding and it is in this area that I would suggest ownership look into upgrading. Our sheets appeared to be old (worn) and my pillow wasn't much of anything. Rooms however are spacious and clean and a simple upgrading of bedding would elevate the entire experience.
From the Tivoli, you can be in the heart of the Village in three minutes and that makes it ideal. That puts you just minutes from many great restaurants and I'd suggest Up the Creek as a place to try. It's hard to go wrong with restaurant selections.
Back to Tivoli, we used the business center, fitness facility and ski valet and found all to be nice.

I stayed at the Tivoli this week with my teenage daughter after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. My opinion is that the lodge is nice but definitely only rates about three and a half stars. Our room was very average with dark colors and no artwork on the walls. The bathrooms were the nicest feature with granite counters and a good sized bathtub. The service was medicore with no porters to help with our luggage and the front desk is staffed with young people possessing very little knowledge as to non-skiing activities available in Vail. There was a guiitarist playing apres ski in the lobby on our last night there which was a nice touch. All the staff were friendly, it was just that there wasnt the service I have come to expect when paying the kind of rates they charge.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Tivoli Lodge in Vail. We chose Tivoli based on reviews read on the Trip Advisor website, and to say we were not disappointed is an understatement. We had a beautiful spacious room on the 5th floor with large balcony overlooking the mountain - a truly spectacular view. The staff are amazing, friendly and make you feel like family, but the true highlight of Tivoli Lodge is the owners Bob and Diane. Diane came to greet us on our arrival into our room, proceeding to tell us about the lodge and Vail and pointed us in the direction of their home (within the lodge), inviting us in and letting us know just to knock if we need anything. Bob and Dianes dogs are part of the Tivoli family and go out of their way to greet you in the foyer each morning at breakfast to say hello. Bob is also a regular at breakfast each morning and really enjoys chatting with guests to find out their plans for the day and ensure everyone is enjoying themselves, without being intrusive. I can honestly say we felt completely at home at the Tivoli and part of the family. The lodge is beautiful, based right at the bottom of Vail Mountain - could not ask for a better location, the complimentary breakfast served each day is a massive spread fit for a king. We also had free internet access within the business centre and weren't charged for the local calls we needed to make within the room. My husband and I fell in love with Vail, but staying at the Tivoli just made the holiday even more amazing. The staff genuinely seem to love working at the lodge and its not surprising with Bob and Diane being so outwardly warm and welcoming, making your stay one to remember and making Vail and Tivoli Lodge a place you will want to come back to again.

My sister and I stayed here for 5 nights in January. The service is exceptional, friendly, helpful, welcoming. Good breakfast included, lovely rooms, including the "smallest" which has everything you need. Location is fantastic, with a good price. Ski valet service at the hotel and free chocolate chip cookies at the end of the ski day! Vail Athletic Club two blocks away for a steam and massage. I already booked my return trip for December 2010. Tivoli will be an annual stay as long as the owners remain the same.

We stayed for 6 nights as part of a ski holiday. This is a cosy Family Lodge. Staff & owner were very friendly.Great location with Valet ski service & close to village. Can ski back to hotel if snow is good enough. Also has a great breakfast. Would stay again. Only problem was we had a faulty TV that was replaced as soon as we called front desk. However there was still a problem with the replacement TV. The manager said it would be replaced the next day but they never retured to exchange it for the remaining 3 days of our stay.

We just returned from a long weekend skiing in Vail. The Tivoli Lodge is simply the best hotel i have stayed at. It starts with the staff everyone from the front desk, BV behind the bar, the staff who helped with the skiis, the people who helped with breakfast, even the owners dog, were all fantastic. The location is great a very short walk to the chair lifts and to the main Vail shops. The rooms (we had a mountain view) were spacious and spotless. The free breakfast was a perfect start to the day.The hotel is not cheap but would stay there on my next visit to Vail.

Six of us have just returned from a fantastic skiing trip to Vail where we stayed at The Tivoli Lodge for 7 nights. We flew BA from London Heathrow to Dever International Airport which takes 10 hours. We transferred to Vail with Colorado Mountain Express which took nearly three hours.

The Hotel is located in a great position on Hanson Ranch Road which is within 5 minutes walking distance into the heart of Vail Village. The Tivoli is within a 4 minute walk in ski boots to the Vista Bahn Express lift and a 7 minute walk in ski boots to the Riva Bahn Express Lift. Because of the great snow conditions we were able to ski back to the hotel door each evening by coming down the Ruders Run piste into Gopher Hill.

We had booked through Skiline.co.uk and were allocated two single Village view rooms, one twin Village View and one twin Mountain View rooms. The Mountain View room (304) was excellent with two large comfortable double beds, a large bathroom with excellent shower, seperate bath and toilet. It also had a fridge, coffee maker and small breakfast bar. The built in wardrobe has a safe deposit box and ample storage for two people. There is a phone and TV in the room. The TV has a wide and varied range of programming including useful Vail TV which updates on weather and useful local information. Our room had a balcony that looks out onto spectacular views of the mountains and the outdoor hot tubs. There is free and speedy WiFi throughout the hotel and free WiFi in the village.

The Hotel has a very warm and welcoming atmosphere with all the staff and owners working to make you feel appreciated. There is a large lounge area by the fire place and the brownhound lounge where you can sit in comfort to watch a giant TV or just read a book. There is a ski locker on the ground floor where the staff store your boots and skis at the end of each day and find them for you each morning. There were free cookies here most afternoons!

BV looks after the bar, and kept us stocked up with Heineken outside in the hot tub each evening, great job BV! The hot tub was warm and welcoming after an arduous day of skiing and a fine replacement to a sauna.

There are two outdoor hot tubs. The Hotel had to introduce a 20 minute maximum rule while only one tub was working for the duration of our stay. Staff give you extra towels for the hot tub from reception.

There is an excellent buffet style breakfast available each morning which included scrambled egg, crispy bacon rashers and sausage. They also offer waffles, fruit, cakes and oatmeal along side traditional cereals. Coffee and fruit juice is also freely available.

Reception staff were more than willing to arrange restaurant bookings in the village and organise taxis etc. We had a day trip to Beaver Creek which was awesome with great big wide blue motorways to ski on! The taxi fare to Beaver creek was fifty dollars and takes 20 minutes.

Vail has great skiing ranging from combed and bashed piste to deep powder, the skiing is really varied and the conditions change from day to day. We had 18 inches of snow over one weekend!

Vail has plenty of ski and souvenir shops, with ample bars and restaurants of all different types and tastes. We thought that 'Up the Creek' was our favourite restaurant followed by 'Alpenrose' and 'Russells'.
