The only ski-in, ski-out hotel in Aspen, this iconic Relais & Châteaux hotel stands at the base of Aspen Mountain, next to the Silver Queen Gondola and just steps from the town’s enticing shops and restaurants. Lush fabrics and modern art grace the beautifully appointed interiors enhanced by mountain views. Guest rooms and suites, most with balconies, feature gas log fireplaces, down-filled sofas and marble bathrooms. A collection of exclusive, private residences with rooftop pools and large outdoor decks or balconies are also available. Little can surpass the fine wines and cuisine of element 47, whilst convivial Ajax Tavern’s mountainside patio is the spot for casual dining and après-ski cocktails. The health centre features heated outdoor pool and Jacuzzis; a dedicated Ski Concierge service encompasses boot warming, weather reports and morning refreshments.
