Simply Amazing

This hotel was amazing from the very beginning. Room was outstanding - a suite.

All staff were very friendly. Location was excellent. In walking distance to many great restaurants, a grocery store, the bus station, park for kids, etc.

Food was amazing. All meals in their restaurant were excellent. Staff there were very friendly as well.

While pool was heated it was still very cold. But beautiful.

Two cons: the gym was disappointing. For a luxury, five star hotel I expected more. It's quite small. Also, while I did not actually experience the spa, based on what I saw it was not an actual five star luxury spa that I'd expect at this type of venue and as such decided I would wait to experience the spa at our next hotel. So while I cannot rate the actual services, there were only rooms for services but no separate spa area with sauna, steam room, jacuzzi, etc. that I've had at other five star hotels.

Five Stars is Not Enough

I have recently started posting TripAdvisor reviews because I often review the site myself before booking a hotel. My husband and I have been frequent visitors to The Little Nell for many years; both in the Winter and Summer so this review is long overdue. The Little Nell is not only the best hotel in Aspen (and we have stayed at other 5 star hotels in town) it is one of the best hotels we have ever frequented. The hotel exudes sophistication in a warm and welcoming way and the staff is superb! Everyone from the Front Desk, Bell Stand, Concierge, Ski Concierge, In Room Dining, Restaurant and Housekeeping staff are friendly, responsive and no request is ever out of reach. The rooms and property are beautifully appointed and the location, at the base of Aspen Mountain, is not to be beat. There is an elegance to The Little Nell that exists in very few places. If you stay there once you will never stay anywhere else in Aspen and you will be greeted by name and with a smile every time you return. I would like to note that this most recent trip was to celebrate my father’s 80th birthday. I worked with the events team and we had a private afternoon party at the Aspen Mountain Club through The Little Nell. The event’s team was amazing and the party was so wonderful; the location and the food was amazing and oh what a view. Not only do I recommend the hotel, but if you have something to celebrate this is the place to do it! So all in all, thank you to everyone at The Little Nell for many years of wonderful ski and Summer holidays and, particularly for making this last stay so special with a wonderful party that created fantastic memories for myself and my family.

Horrible from check in and then got worse

Checked into a “mountain facing” room that had a tree in front of it with only a view of pine cones and an occasional squirrel. No Mountain View.

Booked a spa package that we were told at booking provides a treatment every day. Upon arrival it was good for one day. You can book a separate reservation each day and get the treatment, just not if you book consecutive days.

Feel very mislead about every part of this visit. Not how business in this industry should be conducted. Will never be back. The St.
Regis is nicer, better priced and 1000x more accommodating. Feels like we were scammed. Horrible.
