Just spent a week at the Sky hotel and there are pro's and con's unfortunately greatly out number the pro's ! The room could not get any smaller even for 1 person it's tight not to mention the bathroom we both couldn't get in it at the same time, the toilet is literally on top of the door ! After doing some research here there are much better condo's and hotels for the equivalent or less money. The hotel lacks that extra service from the front desk our greeting on arrival was poor ! the breakfast staff and bar staff make it more pleasurable and more genuine. On the plus side the location is very good however the only down side to this is that it is opposite the Little Nell which is at least 3 starts above The Sky in terms of quality of room and service. If you want to ski at Buttermilk or Snowmass you need to walk round to the bus station with ski's catch the bus then after your day if your going back the next day you can
leave your gear but at $10 a night. Disappointing that you have to walk to the bus station as other hotels offer the hotel mini bus direct to ski areas.
Aspen ski lift is just 5 mins walk round the corner from the hotel.
The hot tub is an experience as a couple of times I was in it people who were not staying at the hotel took a dip so you can imagine it got crowded !
Tom in the ski shop downstairs is great, good advise and service really looked after the ski's and told us the set up around the place, you can ski in but there is a little walk over the road to the hotel.
Best food was the L' Hostaria, Hickory House and Little Annies for the more American feel generally good food everywhere !
Would recommend Aspen for the skiing it's the best I've ever done as far as the Sky re think if you like 5 star !
