“The perfect place to get away from it all while being in the heart of it all”
Reviewed March 22, 2011

We love staying at the Gant. It's location is perfect. It is tucked up against the mountain in the trees, just two blocks from downtown. The outstanding service starts before your check in with help with tickets and reservations from the concierge. The free shuttle into town and the Aspen buses means you don't need a car at all during your stay. The condos are well laid out and well stocked. Each has a nice balcony or patio. The hot tubs and pool are perfect for after a long ski day.

Upon arriving in Aspen airport we gave a quick call to The Gant, and they sent the shuttle bus to collect us. 20 minutes later we were checked in to our room.

We were two couples sharing a lovely spacious deluxe 2 bedroomed condo, with a balcony overlooking the Aspen Gondola. Both rooms were en suite. The smaller room had great views of the slopes, and a shower. The larger room had 2 large double beds, and a bath.

The fit out of the condo was impressive. All high quality furnishings, surround sound music system, flatscreen TV, log fireplace, beautiful kitchen with a large fridge, oven, fancy-as touch activated electric hob, kettle, coffee machine, blender, etc.

Friends of ours were staying in a separate block, their place was finished in a different but equally impressive manner.

The two 12-person hot tubs were great for relieving muscle tension after a day on the slopes. The pool provided a cooling break from the hot tubs. There's a sauna there too apparently, although the hot tubs were more than enough for us.

The staff were always friendly & obliging. The free shuttle bus to the Ruby Park bus stop was handy in the morning when you're too lazy to walk the four blocks. The shuttle runs all day, and is available to drop you off and collect you anywhere in town up to 11pm. Although Aspen is small and easily walkable, this little luxury went down well with the ladies on the evenings out.

When I come back to Aspen I'll be staying in The Gant again.

Can't go wrong with these apartments. We had a two bedroom, booked the basic category but given an upgrade. Very comfortable with wonderful open fire place . Pool and spa area just perfect. The free shuttle service is amazing , they are there to drop off/pick up at short notice anywhere in Aspen. Never kept waiting for more than a few minutes. Staff very friendly and relaxed yet attentative.

The Gant is a healthy walk away from the town of Aspen. I didn't measure the distance but it felt like about a half mile to the supermarket, liquor store, and Apres ski at the Sky or Little Nell, and a bit longer for the restaurants and bars.

We had a two-bedroom, two-bath room for four of us - me, my wife, and two teenage children. The room was very spacious, had good electronics, and had a sizable pass-through kitchen with a full assortment of desired tableware, tools, etc.

There is a nice outdoor heated pool, two sizable hot tubs, and a small but reasonably equipped gym.

The above are reasons enough to highly recommend this hotel. However, the staff at this hotel also provided the most outstanding service. Every request was addressed in the most pleasant and efficient manner. If you didn't want to walk, anywhere, they were ready to take you in their hotel vans. They would even wait for you, especially if you were making a quick trip to the store. I can't say enough about the service at this hotel.

I would recommend this hotel

I highly recommend this hotel. They are very nice apartments with a good decoration. They were clean and comfortable. I recommend you to book a room in front of the pool area, because that is the highlight of the hotel. It had two hot jacuzzis and a warm pool. They provided tonnes of towels so that when yo went out of the jacuzzis you stay warm. We never used our bathrooms as the bathrooms in the pool area were excellent and we showered after the jacuzzis

Great Place to stay if planning to visit Aspen. Staff are very friendly and helpful, Transportation to and from Gant is the BEST feature. There is a Van/shuttle ready to take you anywhere in town anytime you like. You can see a Gant-van almost every 15 min anywhere you are in town and they will take you all over without hesitation or cost (of course, you feel more than happy to leave a good tip). Staff are always welcoming and truly caring. The units are well euiped and well designed. Before booking, my only hesitation was the fact that it was "privately own condos" but to be honest, it really felt like a great Hotel.

We stayed at the Gant only a few nights because the hotel we wanted to stay at, "The St. Regis" was booked for part of our trip. Comparing the two places, I would say the Gant was a much better value. I was hesitant to book there because it wasn't a true hotel but rather privately owned condos rented out as hotel room suites. My husband insisted we give it a try since it had such good reviews here on TripAdvisor and boy was he right! The unit we got was one of the higher end furnished ones and it was nicer than our rooms we later stayed at the St. Regis. At the Gant we were upgraded to a 4 bedroom unit, when we had paid for a 3 bedroom and only had to pay the difference in a tax fee of $50 which was great. The unit was clean, comfortable and like I said, better decorated than the St. Regis rooms. There was a real wood burning fireplace a nice living room, nice small kitchen, and 3 full bathrooms. (The bathrooms all had new amenities for bathing, shampoo, conditioners etc.) The price was great for the value of all the space. The kids could play in the snow right outside the door. My concern was that housekeeping and bell service would be lacking because it was a condo not a hotel, but I was again pleasantly surprised! The service was right on. We could call for towels, a crib for the baby etc. even at night and the staff was there right away. The housekeepers were also there right away in the morning, just like in a hotel. The staff was super friendly. The bell boys and shuttle service were superb. We could ask for a shuttle to anywhere in town and within less than 5 minutes we would be on our way. The location is also perfect right near all the shops and restaurants. The only thing lacking here is an on site spa, restaurant and bar lobby lounge. But if you don't care about those things, this is a great place. We definitely would go again.
