This luxe Alpine retreat pulls off the rare trick of being both cozy and opulent. Set at the base of majestic Aspen Mountain and close to the famed slopes of Snowmass and Aspen Highlands, the warm red brick exterior is the icing on the cake of the gilded-yet-discreet brand of décor synonymous with the New York flagship. Apart from rich wood paneling and the occasional snowflake print, the resort avoids the woodsy, antler-riddled cliches of Alpine lodges, instead making subtle use of silver and lavender tones and luxurious touches like teardrop chandeliers and a grand staircase with mirrored panels. Apres-ski is a breeze thanks to the hot tubs, heated pool-with-a-view and Remede Spa, which offers a signature massage with aromatherapy, a warm paraffin foot wrap and a scalp massage with essential oils.
In the Area
Aspen, once a silver mining town, now attracts riches of a different kind. A well-heeled crowd sweeps in each winter to ski the famous surrounding slopes, but there’s plenty of other action year-round. Visit the Aspen Art Museum for thought-provoking contemporary art or take in a concert at the historic 1880s Wheeler Opera House, which has hosted talents from Oprah Winfrey to soprano Renee Fleming. Refuel with a carnivorous feast at one of the town’s most acclaimed tables, Steakhouse 316, helmed by rising star chef Kathleen Crook, then let one of the talented mixologists at Justice Snow’s shake up a Pisco Sour to warm you up for the walk home.
How to Get There
We had to cancel our reservation four days prior to our stay. There is a 7 day cancellation policy. No luxury hotels that we have previously stayed have this policy. I asked to speak with the manager and he politely told me, sorry. I was surprised to hear there was no flexibility or some kind of partial refund or credit. BE AWARE, no change in plans as the St Regis will politely take all of your money.
This is truly an amazing property. Very high class. I usually go around the holidays here. Everyone is dressed to impress and it’s a very animal friendly hotel as well. During Christmas everyone had thier animals. The staff is very attentive. Regular rooms can be kind of small. First class experience though throughout
Impeccable service overshadowed the dated resort, then again, with all resorts located in ski towns, it difficult to keep everything clean and new. Throughout the entire time, we kept comparing this resort to the St Regis in Deer Valley Utah, and no, The St Regis Aspen was not up to par with that of Deed Valley. Service was friend and with a smile but that was just it, it was just a smile and not a genuine one at that. It felt like all the staff could not wait for the ski season to be over so they can go back to what they were doing the rest of the year. What got us the most was the highly rated "Chef's Kitchen" onsite. We always arrive open minded and eager to sample amazing new cuisine while meeting incredible people. It turned out to be one of the worst meals we had in a long time. The wine was 3X retail regardless of the vineyard or vintage, the fried chicken was far inferior than even Popeyes Chicken, and the filet minon, bland and tasteless. If only Gordon Ramsey was there with us, it would have definitely been a show. The kitchen staff looked bored with a few on their phones texting, the waiter was fairly arrogant, because of what I will never know. We walked away with a $500+ dollar check and would have rather went to Otoro in Irvine, San Shi Go in Balboa Island, or Del Frisco for steak. Overall the town was run down and depressing, not a single restaurant in all of Aspen was worth writing a review about, and worse of all, the spring skiing was cringy unless the entire day was spent up top in the black diamonds. The only salvation and memorable experience was taking the snowcat up to Aspen Highlands for a candle lit dinner, simply amazing and worth every penny. If only there were more.....Oh well, back to Deer Valley for us!
From the moment we pulled in until the moment we left, treatment was exceptional by all team members at this property. We felt more than special. It was a wonderful visit. I think the only issue would be our room was across from the Mountain Chalet Aspen and the young party people with their loud music, drunken hanging from the balconies and running around loudly talking and being obnoxious. St. Regis rooms are pretty sound proof so the only exposure to that would be if you wanted to be outside on your little terrace.
There does not seem to be an option to only review the spa. This is a great spa with a beautiful coed grotto. Very romantic. After our wonderful couples massage we lay on feather beds and were placed on oxygen and given champagne! Heavenly is all I can say!!!
