The Little Nell Aspen

Tucked away at the base of the mountain, The Little Nell is boutique enough for personal attention, and large enough to have all the amenities of a Five-Star hotel. Hit the summer slopes or explore Aspen's streets for art galleries and fashion.

Aspen, Colorado
The Little Nell Aspen
  • Ritzy address with a down to earth attitude

  • Home to two of Aspen's best restaurants Element 47 and Ajax Tavern

  • Super attentive service

  • Wine cellar with a 20,000 bottle collection and master sommeliers on hand

The Little Nell enjoys prime access and views of Ajax mountain but location is far from its only charm. The hotel manages to be refined but with an overwhelmingly relaxed feel. The Little Nell is known for its great service and nothing is too much trouble.

Suites designed by Holly Hunt are cutting-edge yet cosy, with one-off art commissions and oversized furniture. The guestrooms are stylish and spacious, with fireplaces, well-stocked mini-bars that are complimentary for snacks and non-alcoholic beverages, well thought out bathrooms, huge soaking tubs and dressing area. Some rooms feature vaulted ceilings showcasing mountainside views, while others overlook the charming former mining town.

For families, there's The Little Nell Residences with two, three or four bedrooms complete with private residents' lounge and roof-top swimming pool with impressive views over Aspen.

For people watching, the cosy lounge with leather sofas and fireplaces is the place to gather. The Ajax Tavern serves sophisticated pub food, with a sunny terrace well positioned for listening to afternoon music jams at the base of the gondola. Element 47, sleek and decadent, focuses on local, natural produce. Rest assured that you will be tasting the flavor of locally sourced fruits and vegetables, wagyu beef locally grown at Emma Farms and pork from Niman Ranch. In addition to an award-winning wine cellar with over 20,000 bottles, Element 47 also serves local beers and spirits.

Top tip:

Ajax Tavern is the place for a long, lazy lunch in the summer. Listen to musicians jam. Eat fresh oysters, crab or Lobster served on ice. Drink a crisp glass of Sauvignon blanc.
