Vail, Colorado

Feature

Hyatt’s collection of brands is once again expanding within Colorado with the state’s second Grand Hyatt hotel, which is also the first in a mountain resort location.

The new property sits at the base of Vail Mountain and offers guests their own ski lift to provide access to world-class skiing and snowboarding opportunities.

The Grand Hyatt Vail opening follows a massive renovation on the property in 2018. The hotel features 285 rooms and allows for ski-in and ski-out access. The hotel is filled with subtle nods to native cultures and influences, including the Southern Ute Native American tribe. The property boasts more than 30,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor meeting and event space, making it a pinnacle destination for business or leisure.

“The Grand Hyatt brand celebrates the iconic in small details and magnificent moments, and Grand Hyatt Vail will confidently deliver on this promise,” said Dan Johnson, general manager, Grand Hyatt. “We are excited to bring the Grand Hyatt brand to the captivating destination of Vail and look forward to delivering moments of more for our guests, new colleagues, the Vail community, loyal World of Hyatt members, and beyond.”

Three dining concepts and a spa featuring 10 therapy rooms, a tranquil relaxation room and more should help to push this new hotel to the top of any ski enthusiast who is visiting Vail’s list.

Check out more information on the hotel at the property’s website.
