For starters, the location of this hotel is excellent. As mentioned in other reviews, you can pretty much walk to anything you need (restaurants, nightlife, grocery store, ski area or shuttle buses for the other ski areas like Buttermilk, Snowmass, Aspen Highlands). Additionally, the place has underground parking if you have a car which is a plus (some condo-type rentals have outdoor parking only). The parking lot is tight so be careful in the SUV’s but nice to have for sure. The heated pool and hot tubs are also really nice. The pool in winter will be almost too cold for swimming (for some of us anyway) but fun for jumping in between the hot tub and pool. That’s not a hotel issue, they heat the pool and cover it, however, when it’s really cold outside, you can only get the pool so-warm. The hot-tubs on the other hand were nicely hot and great after a day on the slopes.
There is a difference in rooms. I realize the hotel states that most are remodeled and that may be true but I think it comes to personal taste then of what you find to your liking as far as décor. Owners all have their own tastes and budgets so it may or may not go with what you like. We stayed in what is called a “Premium One-Bedroom”. In reality it had previously been two studios that had been combined to a one-bedroom and it was absolutely fabulous! The owners did an outstanding job of decorating it; it had two full baths, fireplace in living and master bedroom, lovely furnishings, well-equipped kitchen, view of the mountain to die-for and plenty of room for a family of 4 to spread out. We actually moved from our first one-bedroom to this one and granted it was more money, but worth it! It was considerably better than our first option so try and find out as much about the room as you can before you commit so you are happy with what you get. We were much happier once we moved rooms. Previously, I had stayed in a studio at this same location and again, the specific room made the difference. Mine was much better than friends due to the upgraded décor and we were paying the same price in that instance.
The service at the hotel was excellent. Everyone we encountered was courteous, helpful, professional and prompt. We made some extra requests of housekeeping…..no problem. We moved rooms (when we upgraded)….no problem (they moved all our stuff for us while we were out skiing that day). We asked them to take the cover off the hot tub when we got back from skiing….done immediately, etc.
Of course Aspen is expensive, food is more, gas is more, etc so keep that in mind when planning a vacation there if budget is of concern but on the other hand, it’s some of the best skiing in the world and the global nature of it (we met people from all over the world) makes it more of an adventure.
One final note, flights into and out of Aspen are often canceled due to weather so plan accordingly. There are several flights per day but I always recommend planning to depart plenty ahead of time that you actually need to be back just in case you encounter delays and cancellations.
Enjoy your time in Aspen, I know we did!
