Why We Love This Hotel

  • The only true ski-in-ski-out resort in Aspen 
  • All rooms have log fireplaces, heated floors and free minibars
  • AAA 5-Diamond Award-winning property for 25th consecutive year
  • Four-legged guests are treated to epicurean treats and puppy jet-lag kits


2016 marked the 25th consecutive year The Little Nell received the prestigious AAA Five 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. Perennial 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 and its exemplary service. Visitors are outnumbered by staff two-to-one who pamper visitors with extras like ski concierges warming boots before they hit the slopes, a private chauffeuring around town, and delivery of puppy jet-lag kits to guest rooms.

Rooms are warmed by stone fireplaces and come equipped with modern comforts like Blue-ray players, heated floors and iPads. Furnished with walnut tables, leather chairs, velvet banquettes and fur throws, all accommodation 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 mandatory donation to a local environmental organization.

A James Beard semi-finalist 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 where “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.
