We stayed at sky for 5 nights. Great location on hill - ski in ski out. Great staff - very friendly and always willing to help. Hotel was more of a motel. Rooms were "hot tub time machine" - very 70's. No elevators for 2nd floor and most rooms have no view. Rooms very clean- that's really all that matters... More

We had to call maintenance twice within first 24 hours. Front desk guy with attitude put us in a handicap room which we are not handicap and the bathroom pocket door is a poor excuse for a door. Had to have them come to open it for us. The handle is about to fall off and they are going to... More

If you're looking for a ski in, ski out hotel for Ajax Mountain, consider this boutique hotel, with it's friendly and accommodating staff, fun apres ski bar/lounge and is animal friendly to boot.

Great location. Very trendy. Complimentary wine. Great pool. In the heart of Aspen. Rooms are quaint. Peaceful. Great restaurant. Accommodating. Parking is not the most convenient. Within walking distance of many things.

Great hotel in great location in a great town with a great vibe. This place is very laid back so not for perfectionists. I agree with other comments that the rooms need some work (the bathrooms and soft furnishings really quite dated and worn). And the housekeeping service is not exactly flawless. But nevertheless this is a magical place with... More

360 Degrees bar is awesome for Aprés Ski with a beautiful crowd. Hotel lobby is awesome but the rooms are in need of major renovations. Kimpton Hotels have been recently bought out so perhaps that will happen sooner than later. A great location to ski out to the Gondola of Aspen Mountain (Ajax).

Thanks for staying with us and thanks for the feedback. Our ownership is making big plans for some major updates to the building. It can be a very slow process here in Aspen, but it will be worth it in the end. More

I stayed here for 5 days & 4 nights. It is a great, central location in Aspen close to the base of the mountain, shops, restaurants, and free buses to the other mountains.

My review is solely based on my experience at the Sky Bar rather than the hotel itself. In every restaurant and bar I have frequented I have never had the displeasure of my waiter or waitress questioning the amount of money I had tipped (at least to me personally). It is especially rude when you're a working class local of... More

Loved the location at the base of aspen mountain!! The hotel is very chic and the outdoor area can't be beat. The rooms are small and efficient. The design is a unique mix of modern and rustic lodge. The staff is very accommodating and friendly.
