If you reserved because you think that you are going to have the kimpton service and quality then forget about it. If you booked because you want to be in an inexpensive hotel next to the gondola then I would say its the right choice. I stayed there over a weekend before the closing of the season. The rooms outside... More

Pros: Excellent location for skiing; you can come right of the slopes and practically fall into the hot tub. Great breakfast buffet. Quiet rooms. Excellent complimentary ski check. Cons: Design below Kimpton's usual standards, which is why it will soon be razed and replaced. Service spotty. Some excellent, some clueless.

We have stayed at almost all of the hotels at the base of the mountain and this is, by far, our favorite. The front desk staff are super helpful and accommodating. The après scene can't be beat. The pool is a blast, the robes are fun. The complementary cookies, coffee, hot cocoa- super thoughtful and give you something to look... More

We adored this little quirky property, and wished we could stay longer. Unbeatable location, fun decor and really friendly, helpful staff. This property was full of surprises - from the complimentary cookies, wine tasting to the tiger print robes! It has so much personality & flair - bit sad that it is going to be bulldozed! Lets hope the new... More

Very well located, Aspen is actually a very little and cozy town. The view is amazing, located at the foot of the huge and marvelous Aspen Mountain. You just walk one block to access the mountain and the magnificent Gondola's 14 minutes' ride to the top of the mountain. The rooms are not the nicest, but they are very clean,... More

From when we arrived to when we left the staff were so attentive. Our room was wonderful, even though the wonderful Sky Bar was on the same floor we never heard a sound from it. The drinks in the evening with a chance to meet the Manager were very tastefully handled with lovely wine and eats. Restaurant breakfast buffet was... More

Retro-chic hotel/motel almost at the base of Ajax mountain. Not cheap, but for Aspen standards good value in one of the best spots in town if skiing Ajax. Very friendly service. Room: We were booked into a standard Deluxe Room but were upgraded on arrival (to a Superior Guest Room) - not sure why but thank you Sky Hotel! The... More

This was our 2nd d time to stay here. Both times we had grandchildren. Perfect place for that. Rooms on side of pool/hot tub are noisier than rooms facing street. Breakfast is expensive. First year, it came with room. Not this time. Find other places to eat that are more charming and less expensive. We had a $10 credit to... More

Has the perfect location just next to Aspen base station and the on-site ski shop and storage facilities make for a super easy ski experience. Very friendly and helpful staff at both the hotel and the ski shop. Easy access to the many great restaurants and shopping locations in town. All in all, we had a pleasant stay at the... More
