I had the good fortune of staying at the Little Nell in Aspen on a business trip in May. From the moment you arrive to moment you leave, this is a World-Class experience. First of all, the location is stellar. The hotel is located right at the base of Aspen Mtn. Clearly this is key if you come here to... More

The overall experience at the Little Nell in Aspen during closing week 2015 was wonderful. The staff was incredibly friendly, courteous, and attentive. Everything from easy check-in to helping me find my lost luggage with United, the staff could not have been better. The room was kept impeccably, with a great turn-down, fresh towels, etc. Overall a wonderful experience and... More

This review is simple….The Little Nell is fabulous. The name intrigues me most. The (unusual) use of the word "little". In our Donald Trumpian world the use of "humble" vernacular is not that fashionable and often perceived as "weak". On the contrary I view humility as strength.

Beautiful hotel and outstanding service! Element 47, Ajax, the spa i loved every minute at The Nell in Aspen. Especially recommend the green machine juice, lemon pancakes with the raspberry sauce for breakfast, wagyu beef sliders and the truffle fries for lunch! And everything on the dinner menu.

The little Nell is the perfect place to stay when in Aspen. The rooms are comfortable and the staff are very friendly and helpful. A feature that added to the experience was the ski concierge, who helped us with everything ski related, from ski rentals to lift passes to transport. I would definitely stay here again!
