Fodor's Review

Aspen's trendiest hotel, part of the playful Kimpton boutique-hotel group, attracts a young crowd with its sleek style and excellent location across the street from the slopes. The modern lobby, with its oversized white leather chairs, leads to the cool (and often crowded) 39 Degrees lounge, whose doors open poolside to a hopping après-ski scene. The hotel offers some nice perks, including a daily "altitude adjustment" happy hour with complimentary wine, plus free in-town

transportation, in-room Wi-Fi, and use of bikes in the summer—all without an added resort fee. Small rooms have exposed honey beams and whimsical accents: orange borders on white walls, grey cable-knit "sweater" headboards, red houndstooth chairs, and aspen-tree patterns on throw pillows.

Lipstick on a Pig

Don't be fooled by the website. The finish out on the rooms is nice, but it was a thin veneer over the 1960's motor lodge architecture. They also dont advertise that the rooms are smaller than most cruise ship cabins. In addition to the premium room rates they charge, they will also bill you $20/day for the privilege of parking in their lot. Also be aware that they add a $2/day charge to your room to support conservation of Aspen open space 

if you ask about it you will be informed that this is a voluntary donation. Unfortunately they never inform you of this donation, they just automatically add it and hope you dont notice. Kimpton should be embarrassed to have their brand associated with this property.

Best Apres Ski in Town

My experience at The Sky Hotel was exceptional. From the cool trendy lobby and lounge (which has the best apres ski in town), to the smiles from all the staff, my experience was a memorable one. Also, you can't beat the location at the base of Aspen Mountain!

Terrible service, bikini contests

This is worst of the Kimpton hotels we're ever stayed at. Room was not cleaned for two days inspite of requests. We were in the "old" wing. Missing tiles, no elevator. None of the Kimpton trademarks of style and class. Highlight of our stay was the Miss Testosterone bikini contest featuring 10 mostly nude women and 350 completely drunk guys. Hotel seems to cater to locals and services out of town guests very poorly.

Stylish, renovated (but not all the way)

This hotel is now called The Sky Hotel and has been renovated throughout. The lobby and lounge is very cool and the pool area is the most comfortable I have ever been in (with cushioned benches and pillows). Our room was in a 2-story wing of the hotel that has no elevator and doesn't appear to have been given the same treatment as the 3-story section. Our room had been renovated, but it appeared they had simply painted over the old vinyl wallcovering.

The room had high, sloped ceilings, but the wood beams had been sloppily painted white. That said, the bed and pillows were very comfortable, with down comforter, real cotton sheets, and a nice faux-fur throw blanket. It has a good location very close to the gondola at the base of Ajax. Overall, I really liked the hotel, but the rate was too high, and you should ask for a room in the 3-story section that faces the street (they have french doors and balconies).

Breathtakingly Horrible

The best thing about this hotel is the view. The service at this hotel is the worst that I have ever experienced. The staff is ready to help....when they are good and ready and not a moment before. I was standing at the front desk and actually had the concierge look me in the eye and then go back in the office instead of asking me if I needed any assistance (which I obviously did, why else would I be standing there?).
