The Little Nell

Aspen, United States

92 Excellent 196 Reviews
Note that the property across the street, formerly The Sky Hotel, is being razed and rebuilt to further enhance guest accommodations in Aspen. As is expected with any construction process, sound and dust will be present. Additionally, there is a 16-foot construction fence around the construction zone. The Little Nell is taking every step possible to mitigate these factors so as to ensure every guest experience is exceptional.

All reservations made with Five Star Alliance will also receive a daily breakfast credit for two at Element 47 restaurant (a maximum $42.50 credit per person/per day), a $100 food and beverage credit once during stay, and a personalized welcome at check-in.
