Trip Report Greetings from awesome Aspen

Jump to last reply

I always recommend Aspen to Fodorites who wonder where to visit in Colorado. We are there now, and have been here many times over the years. We love the vibe here. It is much different than Vail (blech), as it is wide open country with amazing vistas.

People assume it is full of glitterati, because some Hollywood types have residences here. But we never see them. Instead, Aspen has a relaxed, laidback feel to it. You don't need to 'dress for dinner', unless you want to. I don't.

We are staying at the condo/hotel Aspen Square, right at the gondola. It's a great place. If you are reserving here, be aware that the view condos also have a busy street below them, with frequent buses going by. You definitely do not want a condo at street level. There are others which face the inner courtyard with pool. Just depends on your preferences. We have the view.

Favorite restaurants:
1. L'Hosteria
2. Wild Fig
3. Pyramid.

If you look at their menus, they aren't cheap, but are moderate for Aspen (or most other high-end resorts).

Just thought I'd post to recommend Aspen and those restaurants.

Today is our last full day of our 6 night visit.
