Scout loves

  • Roomy condos with ceilings higher than most normal complexes.
  • The top floor condos have vaulted ceilings.
  • The hotel just renovated its conference facility which includes the addition of a cafe and an expanded fitness center
  • The setting is peaceful; nestled amongst the woods just on the outskirts of downtown Aspen.
  • All the condos feature balconies and wood-burning fireplaces.

Scout tips

  • The Gant does not have a 24 hour service desk.
  • The hotel is about 3½ blocks to the base of the gondola – just close enough to serve as a good warm-up walk in ski boots. (Otherwise, their shuttle service can give you a lift).
  • Airport transfers are included in the rate, although guests are asked to contribute gratuities.
  • The condos are all individually owned so furnishings will vary from one to the next.
  • A 4.5% resort fee is included at the time of booking.


Unlike the 5 star hotels where they do all the thinking for you, The Gant offers more of a do-it-yourself Aspen experience. Situated about three and a half blocks away from the gondola (and with the main downtown area about the same distance away), The Gant is in a decent enough location for skiers. But, because it’s not quite in the thick of the action, it offers a nice secluded atmosphere – nestled right up against Aspen Mountain in a peaceful environment.

The condos are a great size, and you can choose between a standard, deluxe and premier version. The main difference between the two types of rooms is that the deluxe version, much like the people of Aspen, have had some work done. (Hey, it’s true!) The rooms all share the same dimensions, but deluxe rooms offer furniture and fixtures that are just a little bit more up-to-date. However if you’re not fussed about this kind of thing, then save your money and stick with the standard – Scout has seen both and can attest that the quality standards are uniformly high. (The only other difference is that the premier condos guarantee a washer and dryer while deluxe rooms are more likely to have them – although this is not guaranteed. Additionally in both deluxe and premier condos, they guarantee that one room will have a King bed).

Let’s be clear – The Gant is definitely not a full-service hotel. But the staff are friendly, and the drivers are always ready (between 7am and 11pm) to take you downtown if you’re not in the mood to walk. Plus there are two lovely onsite pools with hot tubs – and heated towels!

Views will vary from one condo to the next; some have very limited views while others (especially those on the top floor) provide views that encompass Independence Pass, or Aspen Mountain and the gondola. You can take your pick of what kind of view you’d like when you’re making your reservation – they’re usually pretty good at satisfying requests.
