“Staying at Molly Gibson is like skiing a foot of fresh powder”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Once again we were fully satisfied with the Molly Gibson Lodge. Jeff and his team made our stay this year as enjoyable as the last years. Like Aspen for skiing the Molly Gibson offers the best package for lodging in its class. Period.

This is not a 5-star hotel, but it has every amenity I wanted for a fun ski trip. Rooms were clean and newly-renovated. Internet was free. Breakfast and apres-ski both offered substantial quantities and variety of food. Location was very close to downtown and it was possible to walk from the bars/restaurants at night. Staff was nice, too, although we didn't need them for much because everything worked perfectly. I would definitely recommend and return to this hotel next time I am in Aspen.

We could have stayed much longer. The lodge was exactly what we wanted for a 5 day romantic ski trip starting with excellent value and: free pickup from Aspen airport, close to everything, shuttle stop to mountains in front of the lodge, great view of Aspen mountain behind the building, heated pool, 3 hot tubs, friendly, competent staff, very good breakfast and apres ski food served lodge style in a common room (which leads to friendly conversations with fellow travellers). Fireplace in our room was a great ambiance booster in the evening.

We are coming back as soon as we can.

Room Tip: Plan on eating breakfast and apres ski in the lodge - save money on food in town.

Spent a week skiing in Aspen and booked Molly Gibson due to the reviews - we were not disappointed, as the staff were helpful and very friendly right from check in.
The room was great, large, warm, and with a hot tub to boot.
Breakfast was good, and the free apres ski drinks and snacks was a lovely touch at the end of a tough day on the slopes.
Outside pool and hot tubs looked great and were cleaned daily.

Great stay at the Molly Gibson. The hotel staff (especially Kamal) were very nice and helpful. The room was great and had a fireplace which was nice after a day of skiing. There is an outdoor pool and Jacuzzi and many rooms have an in-room jacuzzi which is also great after skiing. The hotel is about 6 blocks from the Gondola in Aspen and also located right along the bus route with a stop just across the street. There are free bus rides to Snowmass, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk every 15 minutes. This makes skiing at all 4 places very convinient. Would definately recommend this hotel.

The Molly Gibson Lodge MADE our vacation this past week! Our room was incredibly huge - a Molly King, and we walked everywhere! Allana runs the Apres, and unbelievable resource for all going on in Aspen - she knows everyone! Excellent dinner at Element 47, incredible views, very relaxing. Loved it and will be back for sure this winter!

My best friend & I decided to take the trip of a lifetime and found this lodge through a deal running on Livingsocial. We looked at the options online & decided to upgrade our rooms!
The location of the hotel is convenient to a lot of different places in Aspen. We are from Houston, Texas so it was a nice change to just be able to walk around everywhere! The hospitality from the staff was so excellent. Any time we had any issues with anything, it was fixed in minutes. Our room was amazing as well. We each had our own bed in our own separate areas. The hot tub was in the middle of the two rooms so that was fun!
The only thing that I wasn't used to was the fact that the windows did not have curtains so I was unable to sleep in like I was hoping to - working & going to school full time! But then again, it forced us up to explore the beauty!
The apres ski was amazing! Our host was super awesome, cool chick from Australia! She cooked us anything we wanted, and when we were adjusting to the weather the first day she made us plenty of HOT FOOD that wasn't already out. It was amazing! We saved so much money by eating an early dinner, loading up on snack foods so we didn't feel hungry to have to leave in the cold to find some dinner. So amazing!

I am DEFINITELY returning to this beautiful city & wonderful lodge.

Oh, and all the hot tubs & outdoor pool were amazing. The view from the hotel is amazing as well. Waking up to mountains & snow was breathtaking!

Room Tip: I explained to one of the girls who works at the front desk with my reservation that it was a very s...
