LUXWT Prime Review

By Emily Eisenberg

Well I have certainly been spoiled now. Staying at the Little Nell was beyond a luxurious experience. 

Nestled at the foothill of Aspen Mountain, the hotel is situated in an unbeatable location with breathtaking views of the mountainous landscape.  Although the outward views are unbeatable, the decorative detail within the hotel is immaculate. The cozy atmosphere makes you immediately feel like you are in the comfort of your own home, or a home you wish was yours! 

What made the stay even more exceptional was the attentive staff that felt more like old friends with their warm and genuine care. They were proactive with every need, with no detail missed from warming up our towels and robes, to whipping up some delicious hot chocolate for a mid-night snack. 

This amazing hotel has a separate gourmet pet menu! They also supply dog beds and can plan a stay around pet-friendly activities! This takes dog friendly to the next level!

At this boutique hotel it is not only the human guests that are treated with the best service, its man’s best friend as well! While having a snack in the lobby I noticed a waiter bring over a plate of food, and then put it down for a dog. I then noticed most of the tables around me had dogs with their own dishes sitting alongside their owners. It turns out the Little 

The exceptional service is no secret about The Little Nell. However, I was lucky enough to be let in on their best kept secret, the “invite only’ wine cellar tasting room! It’s home to about 20,000 bottles of the finest wine from around the world, some that share a price tag on par with a car! I soaked up every descriptive detail our incredibly knowledgeable master Sommelier explained in hopes of expanding my wine knowledge beyond what the movie “Sideways” had previously taught me. With fun sing-along music playing, delicious fine cheeses laid out, and every sip of wine tasting better than the next, this was an experience I felt lucky to partake in. 

Although I could wine and dine all day, I made sure to take advantage of what nature had to offer as well! Most people visit Aspen in the winter for the ski season, however, the summer and fall are my favorite time to be in Aspen because the hiking is incredible! With the help of the concierge, we were able to plan out the best hikes for the weekend and the Little Nell even provided transportation to and from! The must do trail is Maroon Bells, where entire time we felt like we were walking through a postcard. The colors and contrast of the Aspen trees on the crystal blue water and the snowcapped mountains was breathtaking.  We also took a ride up the Gondola, which were only a few footsteps from the hotel. It goes to the top of Aspen Mountain where you get an aerial view of Aspen Village and the views of all the surrounding mountains. Needless to say, it was gorgeous and very worthwhile.

It will be hard going to the mountains and not staying at The Little Nell every time. As I said before, I have now been spoiled! 

About the Hotel

Aspen's only recipient of both the Forbes/Mobil and AAA Five-Diamond Awards is universally recognized as one of the world's finest resort hotels. 
Just steps from the Silver Queen gondola, Aspen's only ski-in/out hotel recently completed a full rooms and lobby renovation by internationally known residential designer Holly Hunt. Hunt redesigned The Little Nell's lobby, living room, guest rooms, town & junior suites and its corridors, ensuring the iconic and fashionable hotel remains as fresh as ever. 
The hotel's newly refurbished guest rooms feature designer Holy Hunt's exclusive studio H furnishings, well stocked mini bars, gas burning fireplaces, Crestron technology, luxurious baths and balconies in most rooms. Hunt's design personifies the opulence for which The Little Nell is known by offering guests the highest level of comfort in an escape that is second only to home. The Little Nell has 92 spacious guest rooms including 11 suites and three signature suites. 


If you’re here to exercise your right to relax, welcome to nirvana. Most people, however, choose winter in Aspen to get outside and play until darkness forces them back indoors. If you come to carve a name for yourself on the slopes, our Ski Concierge team will be alert to your whims. Ski and snowboard guests will enjoy access to once-in-a-lifetime on-mountain experiences, such as skiing on the mountain before it opens, learning to drive a snowcat, snowcat powder tours and sweeping the mountain at day’s end with Aspen Mountain Ski Patrol. Meanwhile, adventures off the mountain are many and varied, and can be arranged by our hotel Concierge team. And families will never be at a loss for kid-friendly, laughter-inducing adventures. Winter Adventures are exclusive to guests of The Little Nell, Residences at The Little Nell and The Limelight Hotel. 


Stay at The Little Nell, Aspen's most legendary hotel, and indulge in exquisite five-star service and access to America's most famous mountain town. Guests enjoy exclusive ski-in/ski-out privileges, a cosmopolitan yet intimate ambience, luxurious amenities and unparalleled seasonal packages — from fly-fishing trips on Gold Medal waters to free lift tickets to the four mountains of Aspen/Snowmass. Seasonal haute cuisine is available at Element 47 or on the sun-drenched patio of Ajax Tavern. Rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit in the utmost style and elegance at The Little Nell.
