Totally fantastic place.
The St. Regis is the best hotel in Aspen. If you are debating between staying at the St Regis or Little Nell; the former is definitely the top choice. Walk through the door of the St. Regis and you inevitably breath a contented sigh and feel like you are home. This is exactly what luxury and elegance in Aspen should look and feel like — understated, welcoming and supremely comfortable. The Little Nell is an excellent hotel, but gets the vibe wrong – too urban and cool – right for Berlin, wrong for Aspen.
We returned 4 days ago from a sensational week long family vacation here. I had originally booked a one bedroom suite and connecting room to make a two bedroom suite for my husband, myself and our 22 year old son. Upon arrival, we were upgraded to one of the Presidential suites with connecting room. This is a damn fine suite — by far the largest in Aspen – a dining room that’s set up to seat 8, but could seat 12 comfortably (breakfast every morning here looking out at Ajax was wonderful), kitchen, 2 full baths (3 including the connecting second bedroom), gas fireplace,huge master bedroom and bath (tremendous counter space, drawers, excellent lighting, decent magnifying makeup mirror), nice dressing room/closet off the bath. Much of the art and some of the furniture in the suite was not our taste, yet it all worked beautifully together to create an elegant and homey space. The only oddity was that the suite has no full length mirror. One wall of the suite’s foyer is smoked glass and thus, is sort of a mirror, but not exactly what is wanted. The nicest detail in the suite is the large, handsome hamper (gorgeous grey felt with western stud details) in the dressing room/closet. Just great – and so much nicer than the garbage bag (I bring several from home) filled with laundry that usually sits at the back of our closet when traveling. As another recent reviewer noted the culture of the hotel is clearly happy staff equals happy guests. This is one cheerful hotel.
We found the best things in the hotel to be bloody marys and unusually good live music (guitarist Josh Rogan was fabulous) in the Shadow Mountain Lounge in the late afternoon/evening, dinner at the Chefs Club and lunch at Trecento Quindici Decano (these two meals along with a dinner at Matsuhisa were the very best in a week of outstanding food), location – a block from the Aspen gondola and a block from the bus to Snowmass/Aspen Highlands/Buttermilk, housekeeping – the entire hotel is immaculate, but a special thanks to Sulema and Maritza who kept our accommodations pristine, and the spa – my massage from Danny Petit was one of the best I have ever had anywhere in the world.
We can’t wait to go back.
