The Little Nell

Attentive luxury on the slopes

What it is

The hotel people think of when they think of Aspen: laid-back and luxe.

What it isn't

Cookie-cutter or an imitation. This one's the real deal.

What we think

The only real ski-in/ski-out hotel in Aspen, the Little Nell is in the heart of downtown, just 15 boot-clad steps to the Silver Queen Gondola. Expensive boots, most likely: This a home-away-from-home for wealthy New Yorkers and Angelenos, which means the staff is extremely well-trained, courteous and able to anticipate needs and meet demands. The latest renovations, led by designer Holly Hunt (who has a home in the area), rounded out the edges of the rugged, rustic decor, making it more suitable for the contemporary jetsetter. The 92 rooms have a blue and cream color scheme, leather furniture, modern art and fireplaces; nearly all have vaulted ceilings and balconies with views of the mountain or picturesque downtown Aspen. Element 47 offers comforting, farm-to-table fare, while a Master Sommelier tends to the 20,000-bottle wine cellar. The adjoining bar, Chair 9, and Ajax Tavern’s sun-drenched mountainside patio are the hotspots for après-ski.

Note: The property is closed mid-April to mid-May.

You're here because

You want quick access to the slopes—and expect your skis waxed, your boots warmed and your martini ice-cold.

The Moment

Exhausted from the day on the slopes, you lean back on a patio chair, the sun warming your tired bones. A waiter drops off your truffle fries and asks if you were able to find the trail he'd clued you into that morning.
