One of Vail's best hotels, the Tivoli Lodge, located on the corner of Hanson Ranch Road and Vail Valley Drive, exceeds expectation; it quickly has you feeling at home in the comfortable building and rooms. Its outstanding location provides quick access to Vail Mountain, a block or two from Golden Peak. Before heading out, grab some breakfast from the buffet, and stop by the front desk for a personalized snow report. Then head to the ski locker where friendly staff retrieves your skis and boots for you. After skiing, and a well-deserved happy hour, head back to your wonderfully done room. The standard rooms are simple, but have a Swiss lodge feel with first class amenities such as granite counter tops, incredible showers with side jets and just enough pressure, and plush beds you can sink into after an intense powder day. http://www.tivolilodge.com/
