“Superb Vacation Spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

it would be hard to describe but this place would be rated very high in my list. Expensive yes but Excellent aswel. Its a small town but provides you every luxury that you would need to be comfortably lazy.
if your a fan of skiing this is the right place to be along with your partner.Overall a very good spot if you want to plan a one time memorable occasion in your life.

We recently went on a Colorado ski adventure and stayed at the Little Nell. Rooms are amazing and the staff are professional and accommodating. Even if you do not stay there you need to eat at the Element 47 - the food was amazing - the wine even better. The ski concierge for me was the stand out. Skiing to the bottom of the mountain and being able to leave your gear basically where you take off your skis. Come back in the morning and they know your boots and get them for you as you walk in. They then escort you outside to your skis and you walk the 20 meteres to the lift line. One suggestion - be aware you do not need to go to Denver airport to get there. Whilst it is the safest airport in terms of weather - there are two others Eagle Vale and Aspen airports which can be used. Denver is a 4 hour drive each way.

The Little Nell continues to define what great service really should be. Staying at the little Nell is a magical combination of feeling "at home" whilst enjoying all the amenities of a five (+) star hotel. The atmosphere is friendly, non pretentious and relaxed, but the services, the food and the drinks are world class. Not only do the staff deliver on your requests, they add the unexpected and pay attention to the little things. "The Nell" is definitely one of the best hotels in the world....the location, the people, the decor are all just perfect!

Just having left we are already looking forward to our next visit!

Service was superb, and started with the greeting at the airport. Throughout the week, the service by the staff was flawless with a quiet efficiency. Always helpful, and never "in your face". The accommodation was comfortable with all the comforts of home and then some. The proximity and easy access of the hotel to the slope, restaurants and shops was ideal. If one didn't want to walk, the complimentary hotel transportation throughout town and to Snowmass and Highlands Mountains was quickly available. I was not impress with the appearance of the "spa"....but then I didn't experience it. All in all, we were totally pampered during our stay at Little Nell and Aspen and I look forward to my return. Thank you for a lovely holiday.

Went there for a quick honeymoon night and it was flawless! Rose petals on the bed, champagne, fruit...super comfy bed and beautiful fireplace. Great bathroom. Staff efficient and courteous and pleasant. Aim to please. What customer service should always be....old school.
Great restaurant and lounge area-great people watching too! Steps from gondola and the bellman/valet guys will take you anywhere. And then when you leave they give you water bottles! It's the little things!!! Thanks for a great night!!!

Room Tip: get a room with a mountain view! And fireplace!

Incredible ski in/ski out property with over the top service. Sophisticated modern mountain decor, beautiful and soothing views, excellent proximity to slope, fabulous restaurants and many shops. Occasional pampered pooches lounge with guests by the fireplace adds style to the space and confirms that top notch service genuinely extends to pets. Great food. Energetic and entertaining bar scene. Don't miss the hot chocolate at the hotel or the truffle fries at Ajax Tavern. Complimentary hotel transportation to Snowmass in the morning and afternoon. Complimentary local shuttle transportation to all mountains all day long. Very user friendly and so nice not to be nickel and dimed. The Little Nell is number one - the best of Aspen - the best of Colorado.

Room Tip: Love the mountainside rooms with balcony.

Overall this property is incredible. The service was outstanding and rooms spacious and freshly appointed. Check-in was flawless as was our overall experience. In fact on several criteria I'd rank this one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in...HOWEVER - there is NO SPA! They are quite nifty on their website by leaving out any photos of the spa, and even go as far as including a full spa menu i.e. Swedish massage, hot stone etc. but once again THERE IS NO SPA! For a '5 star' hotel to lack a spa is simply not okay. Other than that, I'd recommend- and please take note that while The Little Nell IS ski in/out its only at the base of Ajax mountain and if you want to travel to Snowmass it'll cost you $70 dollars (each way...)
