We stayed at the Little Nell for 4 nights during a long weekend getaway. Prior to booking I had heard it was the “best” place to stay in Aspen, so without hesitation booked a one -bedroom suite. The room itself was nice. Maybe I am just spoiled but I didn’t find the room to be overly impressive. It was clean,... More

Very organized and professional staff, also very pleasant and accommodating during our whole stay. Ski valet took care of everything with getting equipment and lift tickets. The room... More

I had always dreamed of staying at The Little Nell and finally got the opportunity on a recent fancy work trip. From the moment I stepped through the front door to sad day when I had to check-out, I have never experienced such an exceptional level of service. Every single person I encountered was warm, gracious and helpful...without being annoying.... More

My fiance and I stayed at The Little Nell on 10/14/11 to check out the hotel as a possible venue for our wedding. We saw 6 different properties while we were in town and by far, The Little Nell topped them all. Our room was one of the most beautiful hotel rooms that I've ever stayed in -- the design... More

Except for the weather (it rained for five days), this vacation was wonderful. The room was spacious and comfortable. All of the staff were exceptional in their friendliness and helpfulness. The restaurant was well worth all the accolades it has received. The only problem we had was finding it as the signage leaves a lot to be desired. However, once... More

If you want a sweet stay in Aspen, try the Little Nell. The location is superb, with the gondola literally right out the door. Unlike many other ski areas, you don't have to choose city or ski-side: this hotel has both! The lobby is welcoming and unintimidating. The décor throughout the hotel is classy and sleek yet warm.

First, you are treated like royalty upon arrival with the bellmen whisking away your luggage and your car. The check-in is efficient and the bellman explains all of the wonderful offerings of the hotel on the way to your room. The rooms have recently been remodeled. The beds super comfy, the gas fireplace romantic, the mini bar well stocked with... More
