I'll admit that the decor of this place is NOT my style, but the warmth and helpfulness of the staff make me want to return; despite the wallpaper. The location is perfect for a summer trip, but about 5 blocks from the slopes if you go for skiing.
The decor is old style, but all amenities are up to date. Wonderful jacuzzi soaking tubs and separate showers. The place is also amazingly quiet despite it's age. It is also clearly a happening spot in town. Of the three nights we were there on one night there was a huge party open to all who wanted to join and the next night a section of the hotel had been turned into a lounge called Established with a DJ and anything else you would want from a trendy spot. I was certainly not expecting that...but enjoyed it immensely.
Only small, and I mean small, concern was that it took quite a while to get your car from valet for some reason. I can only imagine that might get worse during high season.
The J-Bar was a great spot to catch a football game. Very warm bartenders and staff. The Library Lounge was an amazing spot to catch a drink on our way out to dinner. They specialize in Pre-Prohibition cocktails and they know what they are doing. While I'm not old enough to actually compare, I know my husband's Sazerac was amazing (he's from New Orleans...he knows) and the only Negroni I've ever had as good was at Del Posto in NYC.
Overall, we look forward to our next trip to Aspen and Hotel Jerome.
