THE TOP 5 LUXURY SKI HOTELS IN ASPEN
Live your best possible life in Aspen and bed down in hotel luxury that would make Kanye West jealous.
1. The Little Nell & Little Nell Residences
The Little Nell is where luxury comes to stay and stay forever. From guest rooms to luxury suites, choose your favourite – just be careful, because you will genuinely never want to leave.
Expect designer furniture, sumptuous wool carpets, to-die-for bedding, gas log fireplaces, a complimentary mini-bar and a daily turndown service.
The concierge service covers everything from unpacking services to personal shopping, oxygen rental and complimentary snow bikes. Even your pets will get four-star service, with a pet menu and a Puppy Jet Lag Kit to assist in getting them used to the altitude – how gorgeous. The ski in ski out valet will wax your skis, feed you hot chocolate and put your boots on for you.
For the super-luxe, don’t go past the Little Nell Residences. Five-star, ski-in ski-out properties with dedicated concierge and hospitality teams, a rooftop pool with mountain views, a water garden, a gym, a yoga studio and that impeccable Nell service.
2. Hotel Jerome
Continually ranked as one of the best hotels in the world, let alone one of the best in Aspen, the Hotel Jerome is an eccentric yet elegant take on mountain living with a downtown setting. It’s where the locals hang out for Sunday sessions, so you know it’s good.
Feel like going super-luxe? Opt for a luxury suite with mountain views and settle in to the gorgeous surroundings before heading down to the J-Bar, where Hunter S. Thompson used to enjoy a vintage cocktail or two.
3. St Regis Aspen
The St Regis is nestled in right at the base of the mountain. And while the accommodations are beyond-beautiful, the best things about the St Regis are the traditions.
The daily champagne sabering to mark the transition from day into night. The family traditions of homebaked cookies delivered to rooms and child-sized robes for the little ones. The signature Bloody Mary in the form of a drink called The Red Snapper. And, of course, the signature Butler Service, offering up a tailored service that’ll cover everything from booking your spa service to puffy jackets and booties for your dog.
Then there’s the Remede Spa with relaxation oxygen room and champagne on tap.
4. The Viceroy
Stay at The Viceroy ski-in, ski-out hotel located at the base of Snowmass and you’ll want to bring the bathrooms home with you – from ultra-luxe standalone bathtubs to sauna-like bathrooms with wood-plank flooring. These are some serious chill out spaces.
Book a penthouse and relax in the cozy, oversized furniture before heading down to enjoy the heated pool or the cocktail bar. The Viceroy’s full-time concierge, ski valet and location are all designed for prime convenience and ultimate relaxation.
5. The Gant
If you’re more of a condo person than a hotel room person, you’ll love The Gant. They offer up a variety of condos with all the conveniences of having a full kitchen and living/dining space, but still have all the excellent amenities of a hotel, including two heated outdoor swimming pools and three hot tubs.
As a bonus, they’ve also partnered with Ski Butler for in-room ski and snowboard rentals, meaning you won’t even have to venture out of your hotel to get your perfect Rossignol setup.
