Gravity Haus Vail Recognized as a “Recommended” Hotel in Forbes Travel Guide’s 2022 Star Awards

Gravity Haus Vail, which opened in December 2020 after undergoing a complete transformation from the original Vail Mountain Lodge, has recently earned recognition as a a new Forbes Travel Guide “Recommended” Hotel.

Forbes Travel Guide (“FTG”), the only global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants and spas showcased Gravity Haus Vail in their 2022 Star Awards with other honorees on 

“Our Gravity Haus team is honored to be recognized among the world-class hotels in Forbes Travel Guide’s 2022 Star Awards. Since the grand opening of Gravity Haus Vail in December 2020, we’ve proven there is pent-up demand for the community-oriented experiences and amenities we’ve designed, including Slope Room, Unravel Coffee and Dryland Fitness & Spa,” said Jim Deters, founder and CEO of Gravity Haus. “And, the newly renovated Spa, fitness area, lounge, ski lockers and co-working spaces truly enhance the guest experience for anyone seeking a rejuvenating escape to the hotels in Vail, Colorado.

Forbes Travel Guide is the world-renowned authority in genuine Five-Star service, and Gravity Haus Vail is the latest addition to its illustrious annual Star Rating list.

“Travel has come back strongly, and the resilient hospitality industry is creatively rallying to accommodate the increased occupancy demand for most regions,” says Hermann Elger, CEO of Forbes Travel Guide. “While the industry faces some lingering issues, the 2022 award winners proved ready for those challenges and more, demonstrating the best that luxury hospitality has to offer.”


The amount of work that has gone into Gravity Haus Vail’s transformation is noteworthy in itself. The team reimagined the longtime favorite local restaurant, Terra Bistro, into a new and notable modern steakhouse concept with a twist, Slope Room.

In addition to opening Vail’s newest best restaurant for not just dinner, but breakfast, lunch and après, the Gravity Haus team opened their third Unravel Coffee location. 

At Unravel, coffee is more than just a means by which customers wake up in the morning. Unravel exists to “unravel” the current procedures and standards within the coffee industry. This is achieved by partnering with local farms in Ethiopia, closely managing the roasting process in-haus and bringing the end user a sustainable coffee experience from seed to the coffee they drink in a reusable glass jar.

In addition to the food and beverage improvements, Gravity Haus Vail unveiled a completely remodeled lower level –  18,000 square feet of fitness, wellness & recovery, co-working and a game cove to boot. These hotel amenities go beyond the traditional hotel experience and also provide Gravity Haus’ members with a comprehensive place to stay, play, train, recover, refuel and co-work – all within the walls of Gravity Haus, yet just minutes from all the outdoor activities the Vail Valley has to offer.

Lastly, Gravity Haus Vail renovated the property’s hotel rooms on the first floor to reveal mountain modern digs that cater to any type of traveler. Think: families, couples and groups of individuals. Gravity Haus members realize savings of up to 50% off hotel rooms all year long. 

Each hotel room is designed with the eco-conscious traveler in mind. Wink Beds, Parachute Linens, EO zero-waste products and more, every small touch in the rooms at Gravity Haus Vail is thoughtfully aligned with the mission of “good for the planet.”
