VAIL, Colo., Dec. 6, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Officials of Gemstone Hotels & Resorts, a full-service hotel management company that specializes in luxury and upscale urban hotels and resorts, today announced the company has been contracted to manage the 66-room Tivoli Lodge in Vail, Colo.  The luxury ski resort hotel re-opened in March 2006 following the demolition of the original 1968 Tivoli Lodge and the rebuilding of the new, state-of-the-art facility.

"This is a beautiful, independent, boutique property located in the heart of downtown Vail Village," said Jeff McIntyre, principal, Gemstone Hotels & Resorts.  "As a family-owned resort hotel and one of the original properties in the area, the Tivoli Lodge has a unique relationship with the surrounding community.  We are honored to be a part of the Tivoli team and appreciate the trust the Lazier family has in us to help take this resort hotel to another level and build upon the traditions they have established here over the years."

Located at 386 Hanson Ranch Road, the Tivoli Lodge, a ski-in property, is on the main pedestrian thoroughfare, on the Free Town Shuttle Bus Route, less than a block from Vista Bahn chairlift, Vail's main access point, and a short walk from Golden Peak and the Riva Bahn chairlifts.  The hotel features a business center; complimentary "Tivoli" breakfast; fitness center; ski valet service; two outdoor mountain view hot tubs; and the Brown Hound Lounge & Bar, where guests can sample the hotel's signature drink, Indini.  Guest rooms offer a choice of mountain or village views; fireplaces; custom leather furnishings; granite countertops; complimentary high-speed wireless Internet access; Turkish bath towels and robes; and large soaking tubs.

"We have gone to great lengths to combine the charm and splendor of the original resort with the latest in guest comforts and amenities," McIntyre said.  "The lobby offers guests stunning mountain views and features oversized chairs and leather sofas; an inviting apres-ski lounge; and floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace.  It is one of the favorite gathering places in Vail and has a distinct tradition of friendly, luxurious service that we will continue to foster."
