We had a lovely stay at Little Nell. Our room was more than comfortable - great bathroom with huge tub. Loved the fireplace and all amenities. We did not encounter one person that was not exceedlingly friendly and most helpful. Definitely will go back.

Staff at Little Nell were exceptional. Lovely facility. Surprisingly, the kitchen had a very difficult time comprehending/accomodating a high-protein, low-fat diet.

The Little Nell.  This was our first visit since the major remodel last year, and we thought the rooms were vastly improved.  (On our last visit, I had commented that the place was still great, but looking tired.)  Service and amenities were excellent.  We were in Room 74, and we appreciate Mr. Harper’s recommendation of that room.  Eating in Aspen is not only about the food but also about the people-watching, which continues to be great fun.  We had an excellent meal at Elevation, where we had not eaten before.  We tried Pinons again, and were quite disappointed.  (We overheard the manager at Elevation saying what I am sure is true: that there are about 75 restaurants in Aspen, which is close to twice as many as are needed.  He also said something about Pinons, among other places, having come on some hard times.)  We had the expected excellent meals at Montagna in the Little Nell, and at Matsuhisa.

Some of the best service we have had at any hotel, ever.

Does anyone know if renovations at Little Nell are complete?  Their website says they will reopen December 1st.  Has anyone seen it?

I just came back from my stay at The Little Nell, and it was truly amazing. It was my first stay with The Little Nell, so I cannot compare the decor before/after the renovation, but the renovation is now complete.I have to say I'm not a fan of their new modern and stiff design by Helen Hunt, it just doesn't feel very "Colorado", but still comfortable.Service is absolutely top notch, all staffs are genuine and friendly. I cannot say enough good things about their concierge, courtesy car service and ski concierge.I also spent a few nights at the St. Regis, and The Little Nell definitely beats St. Regis, better location, better service, and for the same price, my room at The Little Nell is two times the size of the one at St. Regis. I can't wait to go back to The Little Nell next winter.

My husband and I returned to the Little Nell for four days in late January.  I agree with the other reviewer that the redecorated rooms are not that attractive - decor is very modern and monochromatic.  The room had only one night stand for the bed, which was inconvenient, and the sofa was very uncomfortable.  All electronics, HVAC, and lighting could be controlled from the TV, which took a little getting used to but worked well.  The service was very good, especially the ski concierge, and the restaurant was excellent.  We did have an issue with the front desk regarding a Harper room upgrade; they would not do it although rooms were available.  I have asked the Harper office to research.
