Scout loves

Scout tips

  • An underground jazz club operates on weekends in winter – but shh, it’s a bit of a secret!
  • Valet parking costs $28 per night.
  • The Executive suites with 1-2 bedrooms do not come with a full kitchen.
  • Mountain views incur a higher price, so requests most likely won’t be fulfilled unless you’re willing to pay for it. 

SCOUT REVIEW

Of the three major top-end hotels in Aspen, The Little Nell is the only one in the heart of town that’s truly ski-in ski-out.  But the luxurious slope-side locale is just the beginning.

Every element of a stay here has been perfected right down to the last little detail, which is what makes The Little Nell truly special. This includes the chocolates and the little book of short stories that’s placed on your pillow during the turndown service (not to mention the jar of water on your bedside table and the slippers by your bed). The bathrooms are fabulous too – with fresh flowers, oversized toiletry packs, and separate men’s and women’s vanities.

The Little Nell was remodeled extensively in 2009 – with all guest rooms styled in the Aspen modern style (i.e. contemporary western) by Holly Hunt – creating a look that’s simple yet stylish. It provides a refreshing change from the French provincial mood of the old days – with heavy antiques replaced with stunning modern furnishings that wouldn’t be out of place in a 5th Avenue penthouse.

Staff will go out of their way to make sure everything meets your satisfaction, and even with 92 rooms the service feels quite personal. Pretty much everyone knows your name – even if you don’t happen to have celebrity status.

Due to its central location, The Little Nell is also quite the happening scene for après. A relaxed and comfortable lounge area serves up great drinks and food from the next door Element 47 – a new restaurant with a 20,000 bottle cellar. The scene here is to ‘be seen’, so don’t be surprised if the person next to your orders a $10,000 bottle of wine for a casual afternoon drink. And don’t miss the Terrace Bar which has a fantastic cocktail hour. 

Who should stay here

This hotel is for those who want to be in the thick of the Aspen scene, and who expect the best in life. Families from all over the world mix with couples on romantic getaways – all seem to work well together.
