Just stopped here for some late Monday morning breakfast. The atmosphere at the fireplace in the living room or element 47 was just stunning. So cozy and the granola is one of the best I have had. The cinnamon bun very decadent. Maria your server did an outstanding job very friendly and on top of things. Take care of her or someone will recruit her away from you.

The is a fabulous hotel. Our room was so beautifuly appointed to make for the most relaxing visit. Although we did not have time to use the facilities, there were many available to us. The view of the slopes was amazing. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. Great amenities.

This is a fantastic hotel in the heart of Aspen. A truly memorable experience. Exceptional staff and accommodations. Food is terrific! Room was excellent, as was the check in and out. Concierge service was exceptional.

We loved staying at the Little Nell! The staff is wonderful and attentive. Our room was spacious with a beautiful view, fireplace, balcony, soft sheets, and amazing turndown service. There is nothing not to like about The Little Nell! We had a wonderful road bike ride to the Maroon Bells. The staff got our bikes together, filled our water bottles and pumped up our tires. We will return!!

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.
