What makes the St. Mortiz (apart from location and great prices) are the amazing staff. As long as you are at the St. Mortiz, you are part of the family and they are helpful with the most bizarre request, going out of their way to ensure your stay is as seamless as possible. The afternoon happy hour with popcorn and the ability to stay in the hot-tub after closing as long as you close it up really after, show that they trust their guests and treat them as part of their extended family. Couple that with the cool people who stay here, you never know what type of conversation you will get into over a glass of wine by the fire place in the lobby - which is more like a meeting space.
For Aspen, the prices are incredible - but you get what you pay for. The hostel rooms are really small and there isn't much space for anything. The hardest part was ensuring that ski gear dries overnight so it can be worn the next day. The beds were also pretty hard and the pillows less then adequate (but refreshed every day by dedicated staff and with fresh towels). Each room had a small hanger area (to be shared) and a tiny fridge. The shared bathroom was always clean and never so busy that you had to wait for a sink, and even though there was only one shower - it never seemed to be an issue.
The breakfasts are continental-plus. Lots of fruit and coffee plus bagels, cereal and lots of carbs, but really low on protein options. The hard boiled eggs were usually gone in about 15 minutes. And on some mornings the breakfast space gets really busy - but again, the staff are really good at keeping an eye on stuff and making sure the coffee and hot water are replenished all day.
As a space that brands itself as a hotel - it has a great friendly vibe that is what any solo traveler wants.
