We arrived at our "room" on the 6th floor (right below the penthouse) to find that it was actually a suite:
*pardon our mess*
Even our TV menu was personalized:
The clincher, however, was this bath. It measured 15' x 18'....HUGE:
We spent many happy hours (OK, maybe I exaggerate) under the shower rainhead:
I honestly think 4 or 5 people could have comfortably fit in this shower. (There must be some mighty kinky folks in Colorado!) The shower was stocked with bottles of designer body wash, shampoo, and conditioner which were also available for purchase from the hotel boutique for $40 each. (We passed.)
Every morning we put on our fuzzy robes and sat on our balcony, sipping espresso (her) and juice (me). We also found a German bakery in town and stocked up on a few pastries....yummy!
Mr. Homebuilder here was impressed with the quality of things, too...Poggenpohl European cabinets, Viking, Wolf, & Bosch kitchen and laundry appliances, (2) LG flat screens, see-thru gas fireplace, granite tops and honed marble floors....all top quality stuff. I wasn't expecting to see this in a hotel!
Valet parking, a concierge of course, an elegant restaurant and bar....it couldn't have been nicer. Now are you ready for the price? This was regularly a $650 per night room / suite, but we got it for $77 a night. All I can figure is that Kelly must have sounded SUPER sexy over the phone when she signed us up! *wink* :)
* "Aspen" is sometimes used generically to include the town and resort of Aspen, and also the nearby area that includes the resorts of Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk, and Snowmass Village. We stayed in Snowmass, but spent most of our time in Aspen proper.
