Little Nell, The in Aspen, Colorado

The name of this hotel is misleading. In fact, The Little Nell is Aspen's biggest extravagance, a ski-in, ski-out den of decadence at the base of Aspen Mountain. While the style may be that of an intimate country inn, the service and sumptuousness belong to a grand hotel. From the private entrance, 2,500-square-foot Paepcke Suite with a fireplace in its king-bedded master bedroom to wine classes complemented by a 15,000 bottle private cellar, indulgence knows no bounds.

This convivial hot spot entices locals and visitors with Montagna restaurant and The Bar, acclaimed for its legendary après-ski scene. Standing out is the dual concierge team--one dedicated to hotel wishes and the other to your ski needs--which includes two members of the exclusive Le Clefs d'Or USA. Whether you require your boots warmed before you hit the slopes or a massage when you return, this group of insiders delights in meeting, and exceeding, your every desire.

We came to Aspen a few days early after cutting our stay in Gateway Canyons short: we had gone there for hiking, but my husband injured himself badly. That combined with the terrible service at Gateway Canyons caused us to move our trip to Aspen forward. The Little Nell accommodated us not only with a beautiful, quiet room, and arranged so that we didn't have to move during our suddenly extended stay, but they chose a very accessible room for my husband, who arrived on crutches. They promptly brought all of our bags to our room along with a care basket for my husband with an ice bag, soaking salts and essential oils to help his knee, and brought him tylenol. They offered to help us unpack. The difference between this hotel and the one we had just come from in dealing with my husband's injury was night and day! His injury showed us what the service at the Little Nell was really like, and it was some of the best we have seen in the United States. Add to that the beautiful, spacious, peaceful rooms and the spectacular location of this hotel and it can't be beat. We loved it so much that we tried to book a Christmas ski vacation on the spot, but the rooms were already booked up for December in August! We do not tend to plan our trips that far in advance, which is further evidence of how much we loved the Little Nell. We can't wait to return. Thank you for an exceptional stay.

For us as a family this is a great stop for a very good hot chocolate or if you prefer an excellent expresó martini! Very social and a good place to bump into friends or go as a small group. Relaxing place to stop by after you get your ski boots off! Very much like this place!

I'm always concerned when the location is too good. But walk down the second floor, pick up your skis at the ski concierge and walk 100' to the gondola is so easy. Or leave skis at the front door after Highlands. Hit the outdoor patio of Ajax tavern at the end of the day. Or get a car ride to buttermilk to drop the kids off at ski school. You can walk to shops or get a ride. It was so easy. The room was bigger than expected -- enough to put a single bed on either side of the king bed. The worst thing I can say was the sheets could have been tucked in a little less. It's a resort so you will pay resort prices. For me, it was well worth it. My comparison is a 3/3 ski in-out luxury condo at Steamboat 200 yards above the gondola. I thought I would rather be there, but I will probably be back at Little Nell next year. Also, there is a great orthodic bootfitter across from the entrance above Stapleton who ended aching and burning foot and thigh pain and lack of performance from rental and custom foamed boots. My fat, high-arched feet ended up with boots that were the correct length with a stock liner.

This is one of my favorite hotels in the world, and I have been a guest of many of the top hotels throughout Europe and Asia in addition to USA. The Nell has exceptional service. The staff, professional and helpful. The amenities are beautiful and the rooms are very coz and comfortable- love the fireplace in the rooms. I always stay on the mountainside because I enjoy waking to the view and having a beverage on the balcony. The bar beverages and snacks are included in the hotel rate. The dining and apres ski is the best! I have been fortunate enough to have been given upgrade rooms without my request. Absolutely surprised me! The suites are stunning. I didn't want to leave the hotel! And of course the ski concierge makes it so easy. This is definitely the only hotel I'll ver stay in when I visit.

If you pay peanuts you get monkeys goes the saying, but not here. You pay extraordinary rates to be in very decent rooms but it stops there. This hotel is run like a frat house. The F+B is ok quality wise ,but most of the staff would be equally well suited to working in a roadside cafe. There is no 5 star level of service at all , they simply have no clue. I noticed 4 dirty tables at breakfast while we waited for a new set up and it took the 8 visible waiters 25 minutes to clean them off. I asked to be served on the outside terrace a glass of wine and water and was blankly told they don't serve outside in winter. ( the sun was baking and the pool heated and looking in need of dressing with towels etc) Every evening there is an invasion of middle aged party animals to the Lobby which becomes so packed and to such over capacity a resident I.E. my family could not hope to have tea or anything else after say 5 pm. So you are confined to your room since there is no where else to be. In addition the sports bar pumps out music to such a horrendous noise level you simply can't hear yourself think and yes it does affect the rooms on on side of the hotel. This is no place for children or families. It really does smell more like a W hotel on a Saturday night then a luxury five star resort. It's saving grace are the doormen and the one or two European staff who just look embarrassed all the time. Never again .
