Critical Sirens Update

Due to delays in the renovation of the Hotel Talisa in Vail, Sirens is moving to the Park Hyatt in Beaver Creek for our 2017 conference. Attendees will need to make new hotel reservations at the Park Hyatt as soon as possible. Please click here for reservations and other information about this relocation.

Hotel Talisa
The Hotel Talisa, formerly the Vail Cascade Resort and Spa, in Vail, Colorado, is the official location of Sirens. The resort, fresh off a $35 million renovation that has allowed it to join Starwood’s Luxury Collection, features splendid rooms and an acclaimed spa and fitness center. Internet access is included in your resort fee, and we think you'll appreciate the welcoming community spaces, friendly staff, and gorgeous alpine views.

In fact, if you have extra time, you may want to come into Vail early. Only rarely does a luxury hotel in Vail offer such a tremendously discounted rate—and Sirens is a great opportunity to spend some extra time acclimating to the altitude, lazing gloriously about a gorgeous hotel room, reading or writing by the fire (perhaps with a drink in hand), and exploring Vail and its magnificent views.

While attendees are not required to stay at the Hotel Talisa, we encourage you to do so. The resort has reserved a block of hotel rooms at a very low rate for Sirens attendees. By staying at our official hotel, you help us meet our financial obligations to the resort so that we can keep the cost of attending Sirens as low as possible.

Sirens attendees are welcome to stay at the Hotel Talisa for a rate of $139 per night for single/double occupancy, and $154 a night for triple/quad occupancy. This rate is good starting the night of Friday, October 20, 2017, and lasts until the night of Wednesday, November 1, 2017. Deluxe rooms, suites and condos will be available at a higher (but still discounted) rate. Room rates are subject to tax, which is currently at 9.8%, and a $15 per room/per night resort fee, which includes access to an extensive, multi-level fitness center, a complimentary hotel shuttle to nearby Lionshead and Vail Village, local and toll-free telephone calls, and in-room high speed Internet, among other amenities. Self-parking is complimentary; valet parking is $28 per vehicle, per night.

Main lodge rooms feature such comforts as pillow-topped mattresses and overstuffed pillows, cotton bathrobes, bath products from the resort's spa, in-room coffee and tea, hair dryers, a mini-refrigerator, ample storage space, and an in-room safe. The front desk clerks and concierge are available around the clock. Several dining options, casual and high-end, are available on site, and many more restaurants and bars are a short walk or complimentary shuttle ride away. Resort staff can help you arrange child care if needed.
