This winter, The Hythe, Luxury Collection Hotel, Vail is slated to debut against the backdrop of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado’s Lionshead Village. The vibrant upscale concept will boast a $40 million design by Wilson Ishihara Design that honors the trailblazing legacy of the alpine destination and pays homage to the majesty of the mountains. “The project was inspired by the origin of Vail, the people who built the resort in the ’60s, and its beautiful surrounding nature that drove people to this destination,” says Wilson Ishihara partner Mark Wilson. “It represents the pioneering spirit, optimism, creative visions, friendship, camaraderie, and most significantly, their mutual love of skiing.”

Elevated interiors will be feature sleek and lively communal spaces, including a convivial lobby and four F&B venues. A materiality of wood, bronze, wool, leather, and stone reinforces the surrounding landscapes through a contemporary but rustic lens. Elements like carved wood features at registration inspired by local shepherding traditions will further instill a sense a place along with marble floors reminiscent of fallen snow and Colorado Calacatta sourced from a Rocky Mountain quarry.

“We wanted to evoke the majestic and serene Rocky Mountain as the guests enter the lobby,” adds fellow Wilson Ishihara partner Yoko Ishihara. “The overall experience is inspired by dramatic contrast of the grandeur of the mountain range, to the intimate and cozy Alpine Chalet. The space is punctuated with ’60s glamorous touches and historic ski references that brings guests a sense of revelry.”

A total of 344 guestrooms, 22 suites, and 16 luxurious residences will also be housed onsite along with 29,000 square feet of flexible meeting space.
