The Little Nell
About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- The only true ski-in-ski-out resort in Aspen
- All rooms have gas log fireplaces, heated floors and minibars with free nonalcoholic drinks
- AAA 5-Diamond property for 25th consecutive year
- Four-legged guests are treated to epicurean treats and puppy jet-lag kits
For the 25th consecutive year, in 2016 the Little Nell received the prestigious AAA 5-Diamond Award, recognizing the property as one of the best in the world. To the Prada skiwear-donning crowd that calls the hotel a home away from home each ski season, this comes as no surprise. Guests stay at Aspen's only ski-in, ski-out resort time and time again for its location directly in front of Silver Queen Gondola as well as its exemplary service. Visitors are outnumbered 2 to 1 by staff who pamper visitors with extras: ski concierges warm their boots before they hit the slopes, a hotel shuttle drives them around town, and staff bring puppy jet-lag kits to guest rooms.
Rooms are warmed by stone fireplaces and come equipped with modern comforts like Bluetooth speakers, heated floors and iPads. Furnished with walnut tables, leather chairs, velvet banquettes and fur throws, all accommodations include complimentary minibars and Wi-Fi, making them hard to leave. Given the choice of town or mountain views, past guests recommend splurging for balcony rooms facing Aspen Mountain, the Red Mountain or Continental Divide. Those really settling in for winter can book private mountainside residences with kitchens, up to four bedrooms, direct access to the slopes and use of the rooftop pool and water garden. All stays include a mandatory donation to a local environmental organization.
A James Beard semifinalist in 2016, the hotel’s Element 47 serves a globally inspired menu filled with ingredients sourced in Colorado. Ajax Tavern, the French-American bistro with a large heated brick patio, hosts a buzzy après ski, “furs and cowboy hats very much welcome” (Conde Nast Traveler). Those looking to soothe slope-weary muscles can unwind in the hotel’s heated outdoor pool or Jacuzzi while guests with more energy to burn can hit the well-equipped gym. Beyond ski season, the Nell’s concierge can arrange fly-fishing adventures, Jeep tours, wine tastings and stargazing expeditions.
