Durée’s Deets: Aspen’s Top Hotel Accommodations

By January 17, 2023No Comments

Planning a visit to Aspen? Durée Ross has you covered with the best places to stay around The Roaring Fork Valley. Whether you’re skiing in the winter or doing some summer hiking, Aspen is known for its outdoor activities, gorgeous scenery and luxurious hotel accommodations. Recognized as Condé Nast Traveler’s 2022 Readers’ Choice Award No. 2 Best Small City in the U.S. and ranked the No. 9 best ski town in North America by USA Today’s readers, Aspen provides a haven for style, sophistication and 5-star resorts.

Due to its popularity, limited space and expensive real estate, most hotels in Aspen come at a premium. If you’re looking to enjoy the ultimate, chic resort destination, start planning your getaway with Durée’s top accommodations and lodging in Aspen.

The Gant

Durée’s one-stop shop! The Gant combines comfort, privacy and convenience bringing a “home away from home” feeling. Who doesn’t love convenience? The accommodating concierge services offered are sure you make you feel like royalty. Situated in a tranquil 5-acre enclave, The Gant boasts privately owned condominiums three blocks from the Silver Queen Gondola and the heart of downtown Aspen. It provides the comfort of a condominium vacation rental with the services and amenities of a luxury hotel. The Gant operates similar to a traditional hotel: Each unit is an individually-owned condo and cannot be listed on websites such as Airbnb or other short-term rental sites.

The condos are accented with wood-burning fireplaces, a balcony or patio, and full-sized kitchens. Exceptional detail to service such as daily housekeeping, transportation both in town and to the Aspen airport, and knowledgeable concierge and attentive front desk and bell staff distinguish The Gant from other condominiums in the area. It offers unmatched access to world-class skiing, outdoor excursions, exceptional cultural events, and historic downtown Aspen.

The Gant was designated as a Condé Nast Traveler’s 2022 Readers’ Choice Award recipient. It placed in the top 25 hotels in The Southwest and West category, which celebrates many of the world’s top accommodations, cities, spas, cruises and more that earn great reviews from travelers.

Insider’s tip: The Gant is also the only full-service condominium resort in Aspen to offer on-property food and beverage service: Pepperjack’s Cafe. Enjoy Pepperjack’s Café onsite or delivered directly to your suite. You can’t go wrong with convenience.

History lovers, this extraordinary hotel has been part of Aspen’s story since it opened as the town’s first hotel more than 120 years ago. When it comes to the best hotels in the world, Condé Nast readers ranked Aspen’s Hotel Jerome at No. 22 and also topped Condé Nast’s list of best hotels in the Southwest and West in 2022.

The Little Nell

The center of it all and not a care in the world. If you’re looking for the quintessential Aspen experience, this is it. Aspen’s only 5-star, 5-diamond, ski-in/ski-out hotel features luxurious amenities, bespoke service, breathtaking mountain views, renowned dining and spacious suites. The concierge team spares no detail in making memorable experiences and includes arranging transportation services, making dining reservations, scheduling appointments, recommending activities, and more. The hotel is not only family-friendly, but pet-friendly, too!

The property boasts two restaurants and three bars, in addition to 24-hour room service. The Wine Bar, a personal favorite, provides a relaxing atmosphere and art deco design, plus a vinyl DJ booth and champagne trunk. And you can’t miss Ajax Tavern for a casual dining atmosphere, the greatest spot in town for people watching and the finest view of Aspen Mountain.
