How to Get There
My husband was sent to Aspen on a business trip and I got to tag along. We are not used to staying in such expensive or fancy hotels and quite honestly felt a bit out of our element. Having said that, EVERYONE that works at The Little Nell was very kind and gracious. Our room had 2 king size beds and a complimentary mini bar that was stocked daily with sodas, water, and juices of various types. On the food side of the mini bar there were bags of chips, Oreo cookie packs, various protein bars, etc. Mixed in with the food was a tall thin canister of oxygen. THIS is NOT free so don't be fooled. There is a $40 charge for this so be warned now! It probably should NOT have been placed in with all the free things. We don't drink so we didn't even notice the brochure outlining the cost of everything that was tucked behind the liquor. We did have to ask for the mini bar to be restocked once because this is something completely separate from the maid service. The rooms have hairdryers, umbrellas, a mini sewing kit, slippers, robes, and an iron with an ironing board. IF you are traveling there on a budget (most were not), then taking things like sodas and chips with you for the day can help save some money. TRY to get a room that is NOT street side! The guests in the hotel are quiet but traffic starts very early and ends very late each day, making it quite noisy. I would LOVE to stay at The Little Nell again but unfortunately, would not be able to do it on my dime. VERY nice and helpful employees that made us feel very special even though we probably weren't the type of guests they are used to.
Nice hotel at an awesome location. Right next to gondola and close to the city center. Staff was excellent and extremely helpful with everything. Good food, but not extraordinary. Nice little pool. We have been there for 4th July. Might be a good place for ski holidays.
The Little Nell far surpassed any expectations I had about visiting Aspen in the summer. I am not a skier so took a chance and can’t wait to visit again. The staff is top notch and extremely helpful. The spa was great as was the restaurant where I had every breakfast and a dinner. It is ideally located at the base of the mountain and a short walk to everything. Aspen is very high end almost like 5th ave on a mountain- great shopping and restaurants- bring your check book nothing is cheap. A ton of great outdoor activities- I took some suggestions from the staff and was very happy- hiking, biking, eating and spending. The room was very spacious and well kept. I do not have any negatives. I highly recommend and I will be back.
My wife & I went there for a 30th anniversary get away. A bit of a splurge but worth it. The staff clearly recognizes that this is an expensive place & that clients expect a lot when staying there. The staff did not disappoint - super helpful on every little thing - they really made the visit a joy.
The rooms are very comfortable & well appointed. All the details are well thought out.
And finally, the location is perfect - easy walking distance to all of downtown Aspen , eateries & shopping. And in winter, it's ski in / ski out from the gondola at Ajax - hard to ask for more.
While the facilities at the Little Nell are unquestionably impeccable, finding the warmth of a genuine smile was lacking. If you enjoy the warmth of truly being welcomed and appreciated as a guest this hotel fell short.
