The Hythe, a Luxury Collection Resort in Vail, is a well-made mountain retreat that shows off the town’s classy side. Just a short walk from the Eagle-Bahn Gondola and Vail Square, the AAA 4-Diamond property provides a luxurious lodge experience at the foot of Vail Mountain in Lionshead.
One of Vail’s luxury hotels, The Hythe, allows guests to not only enjoy slopeside accommodations but also harken the spirit of Vail’s ski legends. This 4-star ski-in/ski-out property is found within walking distance of ample shopping, dining and entertainment.
4-Star Ski-In/Ski-Out Hotel in Lionshead Village
The Hythe’s namesake, ‘haven,’ is felt in every inch of space as soon as you enter its elegant lobby. Inspired by the camaraderie and hospitality of après ski, a stay at The Hythe is meant to embody what Vail represents and hearken to the pioneering spirits of the past.
Gorgeous designs and details such as local Colorado calacatta marble, quarried from the Rocky Mountains, carved wood features and black stone walls, plus Douglas-fir siding wood panels, drape the interiors of the hotel. Sprinkled with glamorous 60s details, custom furniture, art pieces, and a decadent fireplace, the lobby instantly invites guests to mix and mingle.
Inspired by the origins of Vail and the beauty of the surrounding mountains, guests can instantly feel the mutual love for skiing with details such as historic ski photos, books about the history of Vail, and old ski tools adorning the walls as reminders of how far the sport has come.
The Hythe also features plenty of apres-ski gathering places that feel like secluded corners where you and your friends can reminisce about the day and plan for the next. Meant to inspire fireside chats, every corner offers something to make you feel nostalgic and completely immersed in the area’s history.
Dining and Drinking
The four dining and drinking establishments that call the Hythe home infuse their dishes with a spirit of festivity and a love of getting people together. These Vail restaurants and bars are built on a deep respect for local alpine ingredients, whether you’re recharging before a day on the slopes or enjoying a multi-course meal with friends.
There is a sit-down restaurant on site called Margie’s Haas, which serves alpine-American cuisine, and a grab-and-go spot called Mountain Ration. There are two great resort bars to choose from: Revel and 10th Mountain at The Hype.
Most notably, The Hythe’s farm-to-table dinner concept, Margie’s Haas, is a tribute to the World War II local home cook, Margie Haas. Celebrating her flair for hosting, the restaurant is inspired by troopers from the 10th Mountain Division often driving through the valley on their way to Denver and stopping at the Haas’ home for one of Margie’s home-cooked meals after World War II began.
The restaurant features contemporary alpine cuisine with a fresh approach to classic recipes and ingredients. Led by Executive Chef Patrick Dahms, the menu brings a modernized concept of his 35 years of experience in Alpine cuisine, all inspired by his upbringing in Germany and his travels in Italy and the Austrian Alps.
But before dinner, grab a drink at the Revel Lounge. Serving at the hub for gathering and jubilation, the Revel Lounge is the place to be with unique cocktails and a sultry ambiance that will have guests wanting to linger just a bit longer.
To end the evening, enjoy a nightcap at The Hythe’s lobby bar, 10th Mountain. Partnering with the local 10th Mountain Whiskey and Spirit Company, the bar is a place for guests to gather for an après cocktail or after-dinner drink around the custom lobby fireplace after a long day on the mountain. As guests throw back a few they have the opportunity to learn about the 10th Mountain Division along with the history and importance of whiskey in the region.
In the morning, fuel up for a day on the slopes with a visit to Mountain Ration – the property’s grab & go concept inspired by the 1942 10th Mountain Division M-ration during winter combat or alpine training.
