“Deserves a sixth star”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2011

Attended a wedding in Aspen and wedding headquarters was The Little Nell. Had heard great things about it and was not disappointed. Hope to return someday to experience this special place.

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely but facing the mountainside was a special treat.

My family surprised me with a weekend at the Little Nell for my birthday. And it was just what I was looking for celebrating a special birthday. Conveniently located within walking distance in downtown Aspen, it featured all the amenities one could want for a hotel. And in the evening, instead of taking our car out to a restaurant, they offered to chauffer us to and from a restaurant instead of walking in my heels. If you are looking for a special weekend away in a romantic setting, this is the place to stay, you won't be disappointed.

The Little Nell is one of those very special gems. This was our first visit to Aspen and we were blown away by the beauty of the city and this hotel. The staff, restaurant and accomodations were outstanding. The rooms and suites were recently renovated under the supervision of interior designer Holly Hunt and she has done an incredible job.........nothing was overlooked and she has created an ambiance in the rooms as though you were staying in a luxurious master suite in someone's home. More importantly is the staff............energetic, kind and sincere. Big Kudos to Carol the concierge and the daytime restaurant manager both are fantastic. High recommendations for Montagna........it was our best meal in Aspen. I honestly don't think I could stay anywhere else in Aspen and look forward to returning.

Room Tip: Mountain view rooms are a little more expensive but will have great Aspen Mountain views overlooking...

Location, service and quality of place. Not cheap but worth the price. Simply the best.

Room Tip: Mountain side rooms quieter and best view

My family and I arrived after some driving misadventures, due to a closed pass. My one year old son had been car sick on the way. So upon arriving, the first person to greet me set upon finding a detailer for the vehicle and used uncommon initiative to help our situation. The concierge tracked down horses for my wife and 3 yr old daughter. The transportation man found a pool and ice skating experience for us. The food was amazing, and the lemon pancakes need special mention. I just could go on and on about how far above my very high expectations this hotel was. We will definitely be back. And, for anyone even considering this hotel, I would strongly advise you to stay here. The reasons are too numerous and important to do justice to in my simple review.

Room Tip: Our mountain view couldn't be beat.
