Downtown Aspen Diamond in the Rough
This is a really nice hotel for the money, which is far less than most Aspen prices. They have upgraded rooms (e.g., "premier") which are far nicer than the standard rooms; try to get one of these. Great location in the downtown core.

Great Place to Stay!
Spent the night in Aspen for a concert at Belly Up - This hotel is literally next door to Belly Up! We arrived late from Denver, the General Manager Gus called me and gave me his personal cell phone to make sure I would be able to check in with no problems. The keys left in the dropbox didn't unlock the room for some reason, we called the helpdesk and a maintenance guy was there in 5 minutes with extra keys, we were so happy as we were running late for the show. My girlfriend loved the room - its art deco theme made it look retro and the bed was super comfy. Loved the hotel, location, and we will be back again!

Perfect dowtown location. Loved our room!
We were so impressed with our room. Very modern and elegantly decorated. The location is the best in downtown Aspen. Just yards away from Aspen Mountain ski slopes! You can easily walk to any downtown destination form here. The guys at the front desk weren't overly friendly but they let us keep all our stuff in the lobby all day after we checked out. The breakfast was surprisingly good and fulfilling! In Aspen, a breakfast would cost you at least $20, so that was a nice surprise. The only complaint about the hotel is the noise. You can hear everything outside. Definitely pick up a pair of earplugs at check-in.

Perfect location, horrible night of sleep
The Independence 205 room was pretty, clean and clearly renovated recently. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room came with street parking just a few blocks away and the location was perfect for skiing, shopping and restaurants. The main grievance we have is that the mattress, albeit covered in nice linens, was terribly uncomfortable, and the room was way too hot even with the heat turned off completely. We ended up opening the windows in the evening, but as soon as we closed them to keep out the noise of the downtown nightlife, it got overwhelmingly hot to the point that we couldn't sleep. We turned on the AC, but it didn't work very well and was set (and impossible to reset) to operate for 30 minutes only. So after 30-60 minutes we would wake up from the dry heat and have to turn the AC back on. Coupled with the uncomfortable mattress, this resulted in our really looking forward to going home out of exhaustion.

Great location but quirky.
The location is fantastic. The room was small but cozy. We had a view of dumpsters in the alley. Parking is a bit frustrating because you have to find your own space on approved streets away from the hotel. The noise from nightlife outside at night was quite loud until about 1am. Somehow the front desk gave someone else the key to our room and so a stranger entered and woke us up in the middle of the night. There was no acknowledgement or apology of any kind from the staff the next day. Continental Breakfast in the morning was a nice perk but not sure I would stay here next time.
