Nice hotel, but no parking
It's a lovely hotel, in a wonderful location for shopping and dining. The staff was terrific and very accommodating. The biggest downside is access. The hotel has no parking. They rely on on-street parking, but the parking for at least 2 blocks surrounding the hotel is off-limits. We always had to park 4 blocks away. It was ok for us, but anyone who can't carry luggage that far would have a very difficult time (you can pay for closer short-term parking to get your luggage into and out of the hotel). Also, there are steps to go down to get in the door, then more steps to get down to the lobby. Once you get there, an elevator is available to take you to your floor. The rooftop deck has a great view, but it's a little sparse and uninviting - no shade, just some tables and chairs/couches plus a residential style hot tub.

No heat in the room and hot water too forever to get hot.

Perfect Location
Stopover in travels for hike & reconnect with friends. Right in center of town. Rooms are plush, but small - great public lounge and all of Aspen out the front door

Great location in the center of Aspen
I loved the location of this hotel, couldn't beat it. I could walk to everything and loved my view. The room itself was okay - not fresh and crisp like a hotel, felt more like a condo I was renting with an older bedspread and carpet. And it just had a bit of a musty smell so I opened windows to air it out.

Avoided theft of personal items. Laxed security
We left two shirts and two painted greeting cards in room. Called about cards immediately no return call after check with housekeeping. Then notice two shirts missing. Called second and third day. Then the appeared. Hotel had my cell and email. Had I not asked twice I would be out $300 in shirts. Scary practice. When asked if they ever would have called clerk said no. Their policy not to call on left items. Crazy
