Fodor's Expert Review The Little Nell
675 E. Durant Ave., Aspen, Colorado, 81611, USA
Right at the base of the gondola, this hotel is the only true ski-in ski-out property in town. Leather chairs and velvet couches distinguish the stylish lobby. The luxurious rooms have fireplaces, beds piled with down comforters, and large marble baths. Equally superior is the professional staff, whose training differentiates them from the seasonal workers at other hotels. Element 47 serves Colorado-focused but globally inspired cuisine, and Ajax Tavern has classy pub food. In summer the most sought-after tables are on the patio, with views of Aspen Mountain; even your dog can enjoy a fine meal from a special menu. The bar hosts the town's most fashionable après-ski scene.
