Recently touring the USA, we flew into Denver on Sunday afternoon and had a car booked to drive direct to Aspen for a 2 day stay. All the planning done we had no control of the weather. Snowing on arrival at Denver – Hmmmm!! What do we do. Collected the car and began driving towards Aspen. Got to Georgetown on I70 and found the Interstate was closed through to Vail because of a truck accident. Waited in traffic for several hours (about 4) and finally…the road opened just as the snow began to fall again. I have never been so worried about driving. Contacted out travel agent as there was no way we could drive in the conditions for hours and hours during the darkness to see if we could get a room at Vail. Booking made at the Tivoli Lodge for us and we at that time were only about 30 minutes from Vail.
The stress of driving in such conditions was showing and I was about to crack. Drove up to the Tivoli and what a relief. This was meant to happen. We had snow and lots of it, and now at this wonderful place. Took a while to settle down but everything about this place was picture perfect.
The room was spacious, well appointed and looked out over the snow covered ski runs which were grass the day before. Service was excellent, room great with king bed, big TV, great shower, gas fire and the list could go on.
Slept like a log. Next morning we met Speed – the resident chocolate Labrador. We own a Lab so was a bit like home to us with the dog inside.
Location so close to the Vail Village was perfect for my shopper wife although not all stores were open.
Wonderful place and recommend the Tivoli Lodge highly. If we get back to the US and Vail will without doubt book again at the Tivoli.
