“Sky Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Excellent hotel and on the mountain. Great pool, jacuzzi and party area just outside. Close to all amenities in town. More importantly, affordable and just across the street from the not so affordable...Little Nell.

I know, I know, why on earth would anyone go to Aspen during the off season? Well, my wife and I did and had an amazing time. We stayed the week before Thanksgiving. There was no skiing yet but we were able to do tons of hiking and had a super relaxing time. Some things to note about Sky in the off season: the staff are way more relaxed - instead of stressed out / maxed out days and days, the whole environment was really chill. This was just what we were looking for - a quiet, mellow stay for a few days after some serious work in Denver. Secondly, check the Sky's 39 Degrees hours. They are not always open during the off season but the staff at Sky was willing to go anywhere in Aspen to pick up and deliver food for you - which they did for us, no problem. The pool was open, of course, and is a fun dip at 98º after a long hike. They also have some passes to the local health club and spa which is a nice addition to their fitness room, so be sure to take advantage of that. We had an amazing room with a fireplace that we hung out by when not outside dining, hiking, or shopping.

All in all, my not be what you picture when going to Aspen but if you have the time, it is a really great way to experience Aspen as it may have been before the onslaught of visitors. Let me say, being in Aspen when there are 10K people is much different than 75K. If you want a peaceful, almost serene stay, then Sky Hotel is a great choice in the off season. If you want to party and experience Aspen in all its glory, Sky too, would be my choice!

Room Tip: If you can swing it, get the room with a fireplace - totally worth it in the cold weather! Many of t...

Thanks BradleyD_11 for the great review. Many of us really agree with you in really enjoying the 'off-season' here in Aspen. It is very relaxing and there are great deals to be had at the local shops and restaurants. We also love the season and the everything that comes with that as well. We can't wait to have you cme and stay with us again either in season our off.

I have been coming here for years and can't wait to get there, summer, winter or fall! It is always the best! Great beds, fast WIFI, awesome food and fun pool area, fun guests and the staff is great....always super helpful and they have always given us the best service and recommendations from horseback riding around Snowmass, to bike/hike trails in the area, and of course the infamous MONSTER party during the XGames...we can't wait to get back. Oh yes, walk out the front door and you are on one of the best ski mountains in the world.... Alan you are awesome and you have a great staff! Thanks for everything!

Room Tip: They are all awesome, stayed in several over the past years.....

We really enjoyed our stay in the Sky Hotel. We received an upgrade upon arrived from the friendly and professional reception staff. The room and facilities were top-notch and the location is perfect. Highly recommend a stay here.

We stayed in the Sky Hotel in September for the beautiful fall colors. We just loved it. The hotel and main entrance area are so beautiful, overlooking Aspen Mountain. The location is superb right by Aspen Mountain and minutes walking distance to all of Aspen. The staff is above and beyond - the pool and spa area is so nice and relaxing, the fireplace seating areas outside are great for late evening relaxing and enjoying drinks with friends after the hot tub. The restaurant and food is great too. This will be our new home away from home when we are in Aspen. Can't express in words how much we enjoyed our stay and what a great time we had. Can't wait to be back. Love the Sky in Aspen!! Thank you all so much.

Room Tip: Enjoy the happy hour in the hotel ea night - food and wine is amazing and don't forget to enjoy...

The location is perfect for skiers and non-skiers. Right downtown a couple blocks to the buses and easy walking distance to the attractions and distractions Aspen has to offer. The pool area looks out on to Aspen mountain and is an apres' ski hang out so afternoons can get crowed. During our visit the pool was used as for a calendar shoot so the models enhanced the view around the pool. Ski storage and rental downstairs is well run, friendly and efficient. Lockers with boot dryers are in good condition

The double double room was large enough for the two of us. Room was clean and in surprisingly good condition for the end of ski season. Other properties of I've stayed at in Aspen have been pretty beat up by then Staff are friendly and knowledgable offering some solid suggestions for sightseeing, dining and what tourist traps to avoid.

Although my pooch didn't come on this trip, Kimpton hotels are dog friendly making them a good choice for traveling with a pet. If you are allergic to dogs, make sure you note it in your reservation and mention it at check-in. An even better option is to call the hotel a day or so before you arrive.

Great location Reasonable room rates for on the mountain Good service Nice pool Restaurant with a view Welcomes Fido

Thanks for the shout out on TripAdvisor. Great to hear you had a good time while you were. Can't wait to have you back this ski season. We're expecting a much better snow year (unfortunately wasn't very good last year) so get your ski legs ready.

We were in one of the rooms that had a side mountain view & caught the sun on the balcony late afternoon so lovely to sit out. The pool area was surprisingly warm for early October and a quick relax there was also on the cards. We really loved our room, its size wasn't an issue for us though the bathroom was a tad cosy.

It being the shoulder season between summer and the ski season, the hotel was pretty quiet, which suited us well. We found all of the staff incredibly friendly and helpful and they even remembered we liked white wine at the free happy hour between 5 and 6pm. No problem at all to borrow the hotel bikes and get excellent instructions for an afternoon's riverside ride - loved it!

We ate at the bar two nights on the trot and had excellent grub right by the fire. Can definitely recommend.

My only gripe would be the pool - covered in midge type flies so not that pleasant to swim in - I got out pretty sharpish - and the jacuzzi was cold, so again a bit disappointing.

All in all, would come back, we got a really good rate and we're not skiers, so the shoulder season was ideal.

Room Tip: Book one with a balcony, it makes a real difference

It is great to hear that you enjoyed your stay and the food in the lounge. Sorry about the flies at the pool. Unfortunately, we can control the hatch of those little guys and they tend to overwhelm us a coupe times a year. We will definitely figure out what happened to the temperature in the hot tub as that shouldn't be the case. Can't wait to see you back in Aspen. Whether you come back to learn to ski, or come back to enjoy the off-season, it will be great to have you stay with us again.
