“Aspen perfection!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2011

The Little Nell exceeded all expectations on our recent stay in Aspen. The Location can not be beat, the best in getting around town, biking, and hiking. We were picked up and greeted at the airport by friendly staff and upon our arrival at the hotel, car doors opened and greeted and welcomed by name. Check in was seamless and we were in our room in minutes. Our room was spectacular. We had a premium mountainside room and found it to be spacious and extremely comfortable. The fireplace, sitting area, large bathrooms all wonderful and beautiful. The decor is gorgeous as well. Very nicely done. Chocolate covered strawberries were sent to our room that evening courtesy of the hotel. Very nice. We enjoyed Ajax Tavern nightly as it is in the best location with incredible mountain views and great service. The Montagna was wonderful as well. We were going hiking in the Maroon Bells area and needed a car, the concierge offered us the Hotel Car and it was much appreciated. We like coming to Aspen in the Fall as it is not crowded and has a more local feel. It is relaxed and casual and always beautiful. The Little Nell was the perfect place to stay and we will return next year. 5 stars!!

Room Tip: Mountainside for the best views

I had heard many very good stories about this hotel, but was still blown away by the service, the welcoming attitude of everyone one of the staff members I encountered. In addition, the location is fabulous--within walking distance of restaurants and shops. No detail was overlookedat this wonderful hotel.

You're welcomed warmly and treated with the best possible service by a wonderful staff. In addition, the location is perfect and the rooms are huge and very comfortable.

Room Tip: There doesn't appear to be a bad room location anywhere in the hotel.

Attended a wedding in Aspen and wedding headquarters was The Little Nell. Had heard great things about it and was not disappointed. Hope to return someday to experience this special place.

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely but facing the mountainside was a special treat.

My family surprised me with a weekend at the Little Nell for my birthday. And it was just what I was looking for celebrating a special birthday. Conveniently located within walking distance in downtown Aspen, it featured all the amenities one could want for a hotel. And in the evening, instead of taking our car out to a restaurant, they offered to chauffer us to and from a restaurant instead of walking in my heels. If you are looking for a special weekend away in a romantic setting, this is the place to stay, you won't be disappointed.

The Little Nell is one of those very special gems. This was our first visit to Aspen and we were blown away by the beauty of the city and this hotel. The staff, restaurant and accomodations were outstanding. The rooms and suites were recently renovated under the supervision of interior designer Holly Hunt and she has done an incredible job.........nothing was overlooked and she has created an ambiance in the rooms as though you were staying in a luxurious master suite in someone's home. More importantly is the staff............energetic, kind and sincere. Big Kudos to Carol the concierge and the daytime restaurant manager both are fantastic. High recommendations for Montagna........it was our best meal in Aspen. I honestly don't think I could stay anywhere else in Aspen and look forward to returning.

Room Tip: Mountain view rooms are a little more expensive but will have great Aspen Mountain views overlooking...
