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.
