The overall experience at the Little Nell in Aspen during closing week 2015 was wonderful. The staff was incredibly friendly, courteous, and attentive.

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. The "little" (in Nell) reminds me that life is made up of lots... More

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!

Ski-in, ski-out, privately owned hotel. Amazing service, food, accommodations. Will never stay anywhere else in Aspen. All the little details make this an unforgettable stay. Element 47 is one of our favorite restaurants in Aspen.
