The Hotel Aspen sits on the town’s Main Street, placing it right in the center of the action. The property's main areas are filled with floor-to-ceiling windows to take advantage of the mountain views. Amenities include a breakfast buffet, seasonal après-ski wine and cheese, and outdoor heated pool and hot tub. In addition, the hotel offers shuttles to any of the four area ski mountains, in town-locations and to and from the Aspen airport.
Rooms are spacious enough to hold luggage and ski gear. The decor is modern with brightly colored accent walls, dark wood furniture and seating areas. Guests can upgrade to a fireplace suite for a reasonable price.
After a long day of skiing, hiking or other outdoor pursuits, relax alfresco in the heated pool and hot tub. Then walk around Main Street to sample some of the local fare. Celebrity sushi chef Nobu Matsuhisa has an outpost just two blocks from the hotel. The tony members-only Caribou Club is just three blocks from the hotel and a favorite of visiting celebs.
