The location is the best possible (sideways steps to the gondola!), and the staff quality and service focus were impeccable. Be sure to use the ski concierge service... a real treat! I highly recommend Little Nell. Thank you!

After a less than desirable beginning to the trip at another high end hotel in Aspen, I found myself here at 11:30pm hoping the room would be what I think nearly every hotel should be.. clean, quiet, and warm (or cool if it's summertime). The staff was very considerate and efficient in getting everything up to the room so that... More

We aren't staying at the Little Nell, but made a special trip just for the cocoa. TOTALLY WORTH IT!! Add a shot of Bailey's and you will be hard pressed to consume something tastier. My spouse got the Irish coffee and agreed it was a misorder compared to the hot cocoa.

We had our best New Year's Eve as a family ever at the Little Nell where we were staying. Dinner at Element 47 was unmatched with any other resort as was the wine, a Cheval Blanc and Le Pin. We then attended their New Year's party which included a violinist on a stage with a DJ, which was unique and... More

Pure luxury. That sums up the Little Nell. Everything they do is done about as well as they could possibly do. They seemingly know your name before you even walk in the door. Very genuine and incredibly helpful staff. All the rooms are incredibly tastefully done and they use all the most beautiful materials. Can't beat the location in town... More

We keep coming back to the Little Nell because of the overall experience. The location is tops in Aspen, right in the middle of it all in town, and immediately adjacent to the gondola. The best ski in/ski out in Aspen! The hotel is pretty small, and you will get an intimate feel. It's really comfortable with tons of amenities... More

Beautifully appointed hotel. Magnificent rooms and service. Delicious but pricey food - excellent room service menu. Perfect location, boot room has excellent service. The shuttle service between Aspen mountain and Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk and Snowmass is seamless, they collect your skis and have them ready on the shuttle - you hop on and enjoy the hot apple cider!

But would I stay here again for north of $2000 per night? Likely not. Rooms were well designed and the staff did not miss a thing. However, for this kind of money I need to be in Paris or Milan. The restaurant was first-class.

I was writing a review for a comparison between St. Regis and Montage at Deer Vally, Utah, however I thought a comparison to my experience at the Little Nell would be helpful for people trying to choose a place and give them another resort and hotel to consider.
