Loved the rooms, the bar, the food, and the staff. Very personal. Relaxing without a care. Would return. Clean rooms with a great bed. That is all I need, and this place had more. Cant wait to go back with the family this year.

Best place to stay in Aspen and the number one location. We could not find anything that wasn't perfect. As the saying goes you get what you pay for and this hotel is an excellent example of this. The staff the restaurant the transportation and the internet was superb.

This is a wonderful property. However, the $700+ per night rate makes the value equation modest, even given that this is Aspen, Colorado. This was the only available hotel at the time I booked and I had to adhere to dates because of business. Perhaps if I had more flexibility, I could have found a more reasonably priced property.

Dear Markey2, Thank you for staying with us. It’s possible that the limited travel window may have impacted your room rate and we encourage you to consider us again, as room rates fluctuate depending on occupancy. Fall and spring offer the best rates and the five-star, five-diamond service always continues year round. I hope you will consider us when you... More

We wanted to stay at The Little Nell for some time, but never managed to get a reservation during a busy conference time. This year we did, and we certainly hope to return! First, the SERVICE. Remarkable in every way. (How they remember names is beyond us. That's not critical, but it is a nice touch.) We had a mountain... More

Worthy of all the praise. Top level accommodations and service levels of all kinds. We stayed during the Aspen Food and wine festival, which is a very busy time for the hotel and Aspen in general. Little Nell was up to the challenge.

The Little Nell was an amazing hotel, even though we went during one of the busiest weekends for Aspen--The Food & Wine Classic. The hotel is located right at the base of Aspen mountain so you can walk everywhere. And if you cant walk, they have a car waiting for you to bring you wherever you need to go. The... More

The Little Nell charmed us from the moment we arrived. In Aspen to attend a wedding, the staff of the hotel made our visit beyond special. We tried various restaurants throughout town, were delighted with the shopping and loved our room - subtle colours - with a view of Ajax Mountain. I can't say enough - it was perfect. My... More

When you book into Aspen's premier hotel property you expect "a bit more". At the Nell last week we felt like we were the only occupants and service was above par. Our room had two very comfortable reading chairs (with leather ottoman) for TV or relaxing. Bed was King and very comfortable, bath had separate vanities and sinks (two occupants,... More
