“Not impressed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2006

When I looked at the web site for the Gant, I was expecting a nice resort kind of place to stay. But when we arrived we were surprised to find out that the rooms at the Gant are owned by individuals, and thus decorated by individuals. The first room we were shown was like a flaskback to the 70's (including a macrame wall hanging!) and the "view" out the window was at the parking lot, brush pile, a dumpter, and a construction area. We asked to be moved, and the next room wasn't much better. Thankfully...after two hours of haggling...we got a third room that was decent (but NOT luxurious by any means) and had a nice weekend enjoying Aspen. To get the nice rooms that the web site shows, you have to be pay much more for an upgrade.

When I go on vacation, I don't like the hotel to be a crapshoot in the quality of the room. With the Gant, that is what you'll get.

We stayed at the Gant for 3 days with our child. The condo was reasonably nice - not fancy but comfortable and clean. The kitchen sink did smell chronically throughout our trip. The condo was loud at times - we were closer than we would have liked to the front desk area and pool. The location is pretty good though, if you don't need to be right in the center of the action.
Aspen is expensive, but I would still say that the Gant isn't a particularly good deal. It is a solid choice, though.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2006

While visiting Colorado last week, we ventured up to Aspen to enjoy the beautiful fall weekend. I remembered reading good reviews of The Gant on Tripadvisor, and called the day before our trip and booked a deluxe two bedroom condo. When we arrived we were upgraded to a premier 3 BR, and WOW! It was 1st class all the way, and we almost hated to leave the accommodations. The setting of The Gant was what I had hoped for--far enough away to be peaceful, yet so close we were able to easily stroll into town for dining and shopping. The heated pool and hot tubs were beautiful, and our party of 4 all wished we had brought swim suits. The staff was helpful, and the hotel shuttle was always at the ready, although we never needed it. I highly recommend The Gant. It made a quickly planned little excursion very, very special.

  • Liked — Premier quality and location
  • Tips/Secrets — If you aren't a skier, go in the fall when the aspens are at peak and the rates are lowest

We planned a last minute getaway for the weekend and booked the 2 bedroom standard suite. Upon arriving we were upgraded to their premium 2 bedroom. It was beautiful!!!! Their concierge service was also outstanding. They arranged a romantic dinner for my husband and I and a baby sitter for our son with 3 hours notice. I can't say enough about the staff and the room conditions. The gant will always be highly recommended by our family.

We were very pleased with our 2 bedroom standard level condo. It's not the newly updated remodeled accommodations, but it was nicely decorated, very clean, and had everything we wanted and needed. It's location in town is wonderful because it's tucked away in a quiet area and within walking distance of downtown stores and restaurants and the gondola. We definitely took time to hang out on the balcony and enjoy their hot tubs and pool. We're tennis players and went to Aspen to play in a tennis tournament, so it was great to have 3 well kept clay tennis courts to practice on before the tournament as well as 2 hard courts. The Gant people were very knowledgeable about the town and made perfect suggestions for restaurants. We experienced that their website accurately represented what they have to offer. We've found a new great place to go for Labor Day weekend!
