The Little Nell

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We came during the summer so this review has nothing to do with winter sports/skiing: Location- great, close to the Silver Queen Gondola, can easily walk to town center (but this is true of all the 5 star hotels around here). They also offer free airport pickup and dropoff, which I didn't know until after I had taken an Uber there- you just need to call and let them know your flight info. Very quick ride to airport. Service- for a 5 star resort, this is what they are lacking. Some of the staff were good, but some were snooty and not that helpful. This was especially true of the people in the restaurant downstairs- we had to wait forever to get our coffee at breakfast, and right at 10:59am they started taking up the breakfast buffet, approximately 2 minutes after they asked if we wanted anything else. Rooms- small, but clean and look updated. Unfortunately ours was directly overlooking the pool and it was LOUD. We asked to be moved to another room but they were unable to accommodate us. Food- typical breakfast buffet- nothing fantastic. Normal lunch and dinner fare- nothing to highlight. Would not eat on property unless you needed to, there are so many good options elsewhere. Overall- have stayed at the St. Regis and would definitely recommend that over here. There they just seem to be willing to go out of their way to help you with whatever where as here they make it seem like you are bothering them with your requests- just not the kind of 5 star vibe I'm looking for.

What a wonderful hotel. Located within walking distance of downtown, The Little Nell is a beautiful property. The rooms are modern, spacious and comfortable. Ours had a flat screen tv, fireplace, sitting area and very comfy beds. The marble bathroom had upscale bath amenities, shower and oversized tub. I took advantage of the latter multiple times. The service here is excellent, as you would expect. Everyone greets you with a smile and they have transportation that can take you around town. They certainly have earned their Forbes 5-Star award and would highly recommend this luxury accommodation to anyone visiting Aspen.

There is an old saying that "you get what you pay for", and for the most part it holds true. With The Little Nell, it most certainly does. This hotel is not cheap, but for the best location in Aspen, as well as some of the best service you have ever had, it stands up as the best in the business. From the time you arrive until the day you leave there will be staff waiting on you hand and feet for any and every need you may have or think you may have. If you want a truly first class experience and don't mind paying a little bit more for it then The Little Nell will be a great choice.

If you're going to Aspen, it's worth the (yes, even more) splurge to experience the luxury of The Little Nell. And if you are a Colorado resident, lucky you because there are special rates during the off season, which is how I managed to swing it. We were a group of 8 women (age 50 and up) fresh from hiking from Crested Butte over to Aspen. During check-in, everyone was talking at once and asking questions, but the staff very patiently and efficiently sorted us all out. And that's what they do with everything. "Don't worry, we will take care of everything" was my favorite phrase! The rooms are beautiful and comfortable, with a gas fireplace, huge bathroom and perfect bedding for a great night's sleep. This is an annual event for us and we look forward to it all year. Do consider a stay if you can swing it.

The Little nell was a bit pricey compared to some luxury hotels i have stayed at. I have been on cruises for 8 days for much less than the four days i was at Little Nells. The location was great and the transportation by the hotel any time and anywhere locally was exceptional.

One of my most favorite hotels. The service is friendly, helpful and accessible. The rooms are beautiful, the snacks in the mini bar were free and the drivers were knowledgable and drove me everywhere I needed to go. The restaurant is delicious, he pool is beautiful. The locAtion is unparalleled. Love it there.

Unquestionably the premier hotel in this magnificent town. You didn't choose Aspen for its bargains, did you? The Little Nell is no bargain, but then, when is perfection ever cheap? Great staff, wonderfully large and comfortable rooms, and service, service, service is their modus operandi.

It is a true vacation at the Little Nell. The rooms are extremely nice, the pool is relaxing, and the staff is very professional. Right in the heart of town and mountain side. I will definitely be back!

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.
