This elegant hotel was built by early Aspen supporter Jerome B. Wheeler and has been a landmark since 1889; blending boutique ambience and western-style with history and hospitality in the very heart of town. The doormen dressed in cowboy hats and boots make you feel as if you are stepping back in time and the authentic refurbished interiors with old photographs of the silver mining days and newspaper prints provide a great insight into Aspen’s past. Beyond the artefact-filled atrium lobby lie recently renovated rooms and suites replete with their own exclusively commissioned artworks, all accommodations having deluxe modern comforts including custom furnishings, all-natural bath amenities, iPad and iPod docking stations. Luxury suites with a separate living room are also available. Feast on contemporary bistro fare at Prospect, or choose from an extensive list of tapas and cocktails in the Living Room; unmissable après-ski is to be found in the Old West-influenced J-Bar, Aspen’s social hot spot. The outdoor heated pool and Jacuzzi are welcome after exertions on the slopes; the Auberge Spa offers organic skin care rituals to soothe and revive. The ski concierge will cater to all your skiing needs.
