Though there’s a distinctly kid-friendly vibe at this slope-side hangout (full service kitchens give families room to spread out and settle in), it’s clear the Viceroy didn’t sacrifice style for utility. The handsome mountain residences, sprinkled with sophisticated accents like faux-fur blankets, motion-sensor thermostats, and rainwater shower heads, are the works of Amanresort alum Jean-Michel Gathy. That unfussy elegance is also on display at the hotel’s two restaurants: Eight K incorporates locally sourced and organic ingredients for its elevated comfort food, while Nest Public House, nestled between the slopes and the pool, offers more a casual pub-style experience and serves up over 50 Colorado craft beer varieties. Another creative example of its lean green conscience: the hotel swapped minibars with stainless steel thermoses and offers free refreshment stations across the property. But rest assured, not all the après-ski options are so sanctimonious: the 7,000-square-foot chrome-and-glass spa offers an encyclopedic menu of Native American-inspired treatments.
In the Area
Snowmass and its newly developed village, a growing collection of shops and restaurants, are a far more laid-back alternative to the glitz and glamour of Aspen, though the latter is just a 25-minute (free) shuttle bus ride away. But you’re likely here for the star player, the resort’s eponymous 4,400-foot mountain, littered with 91 trails, 21 chairlifts, and a dizzying variety of glades, steeps and half-pipes. If you’re summering here, outdoor adventures include hiking or biking through the wildflowers and Aspen groves of the Central Colorado Rocky Mountains—or exploring via hot air balloon, if you’re feeling especially flush.
How to Get There
The Viceroy was a nice place to have the wedding until they started adding charge after charge. First the gift bags for the arriving guests. They want 6$ per bag just for giving them to the guests once they arrived. Then there was Valet parking, which was really the only parking option. Valet came with a charge of $25 a day. To use the shuttle into Aspen or just around Snowmass was 60$ each direction. The rooms were nice, but the pillows were so soft made sleeping impossible. When we asked at the front desk if they had firmer pillow options we were told they did not.
We visited over a four day weekend for a wedding. The concierge was great in arranging transportation to/from the airport for us. The room was clean, the bed was amazingly comfy, and the amenities were wonderful. The heated pool and hot tub felt amazing. The staff was attentive and always friendly.
With a name like Viceroy you'd expect great service. I bet there are folks out there who love this place. I will not be one of them. (this is where I would play the fog horn sound to stop you dead in your tracks). Few, if any of the staff had any clue where things were. We were in a suite with family-TV system is the worst-they have totally tried to be trez chic and failed. They had construction going on at the pull - a guest revolt stopped that one. Let me be fair-the Valets were the best-they knew what was going on outside the hotel, they had a great attitude and were wonderful with the kids. Meanwhile back inside did I forget to mention turn down service at 930PM?? "Excuse me did not mean to get you out of bed but here to turn your room down-we can come back later if you like?" Later? like what midnight??. If you must stay here I would call and run a few things by the front desk staff. Oh and don't complain about anything. I got an ear full from the desk clerk about how stressful her life was - gee I thought this was supposed to be hospitality. I'd really qualify the hotel has their You Know what together before you book.
Viceroy is our annual destination! We love to take the dogs or family to see the colors and enjoy the mountain activities. The hotel is beautiful and is located near gondola and skis slopes. Comfy rooms and excellent people. 6 stars!
Viceroy Snowmass was a treat to stay at. A group of friends and I needed a place to stay on short notice near Aspen and Viceroy didn't disappoint. The staff was from the front desk to the hotel restaurant Toro, were attentive and courteous, I felt like I was the only person staying there! The views this time of year with the fall colors were unbelievable and I hope I'm lucky enough to get to go back sometime this winter!
