The Little Nell

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I had the opportunity to stay at The Little Nell in May of this year. The guest experience starts from the moment they pick you up from the airport. I had the unfortunate experience of United Airlines misplacing my luggage. That being said, my driver Steve, turned this failure on United's part into a seemingly great guest experience. Needless to say, The Little Nell is a phenomenal location and hotel has great service and is beautifully appointed. I highly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Aspen!

Wonderful Hotel, best situation in Aspen, whether you go in Winter or Summer - right by the center with all the little boutiques and restaurants and cafes, and in the Winter you are a few steps from the main lifts to Aspen Mountain and at the bottom of the piste. Little Nell has a very old world charm feeling about it. Excellent service, polite, clean. Very well kept rooms. Excellent and fast laundry service. It has a ‘ski concierge’ service, they will bring your skis and boots, store them, put them on the shuttle buses the hotel has to go to other mountain lifts, they will organise and arrange any skiing lessons etc - if you are renting, the shops will get the concierge to pick them up - There is a very cosy bar / living room area by the fireplace and the fellow guests are respectful of people’s privacy, yet engaging in conversation. The restaurant is good with an amazing wine list, ask the sommelier for ideas and advice - well worth it! There is a lovely pool in the central garden, which is operational even in Winter. it is outdoors but well heated, and next to it is also a hot whirlpool, perfect to relax after a sporty day. They are very helpful about recommending other restaurants and places to see in Aspen.

Beautiful property at the foot of the mountains. Wonderful accommodating staff available to help with your every need. Great burger at Ajax Tavern. Good place to spot celebrities. Aspen is a great summer destination!

I enjoy everything about the nell as I stay often while in aspen for business many times a year,there is not another choice I would make from the in hotel amenities and entertainment to the exceptional array of lodging types offered within the hotel to maybe change things up every now and then

The room at the Little Nell was wonderful and spacious. I enjoyed the nice big sitting area next to the fireplace and the big soft bed. I would read the paper with my coffee on the balcony. The big bathtub was a great place to relax at the end of the day. It is conveniently located walking distance to everything.

This is a beautiful and modern hotel. The room was large and very comfortable. Wonderful amenities like hotel car service and daily complementary snack bar items. The staff was very friendly and courteous. My only complaint was the street noise. We had a town side room and it almost sounded like the windows were open as we were often awoken by trucks and busses driving by late at night (as late as 12:30 am) and as early as 4:30 am.

This hotel caters for the rich and famous. The price tag is HIGH and the execution doesn't disappoint. Literally ski in/out. Rooms are large and very well appointed. Common areas are stunning with open fires and divine furniture with velvet couches that you just want to dive into at the end of a hard day skiing. We still talk about the life changing hot chocolates - delicious and circa AUD25 bucks.

An excellent hotel in all categories! The service is outstanding. The food was delicious, I highly recommend the breakfast veggie omelet, made to your order! Shrimp tacos were yummy too! Location is easy and in a quiet area. Our room was very well appointed, lots of space, the bathroom had double sinks with two vanities which made it easy to share the space.

The staff here is amazing! Met all of our requests and happy to transport us any time of day! The free snacks in the mini bar are a great extra perk! Would definitely recommend a spring ski stay here!

This is one of the most expensive hotels in the country...but if you're of the "you get what you pay for" philosophy, this place is incredible. Situated at the foot of Aspen Mountain, and in the center of Aspen itself, this Relais and Chateaux, 5 star/5 diamond resort is like something out of a dream. The rooms, the food, the setting, and most importantly--the service. Don't get me pay for it all! But they will bend over backward as far as the service goes. Complimentary transportation to and from the airport, as well as around town. Ski concierge keeps your equipment warm all night. The gondola is literally right there to take you all the way to the top of the mountain. Celebrity sightings are not uncommon. I saw Kate Hudson, Mariah Carey, and Arnold Schwartzneggar.
