Top 5 Hotels Where Celebrities Stay in Aspen

BY The Editors | October 7, 2016 | Feature Features

Aspen continues to be the premier destination for celebrities who are looking to escape in a luxurious mountain town. The truth is, when celebrities come to Aspen they often stay in private homes with friends and a personal concierge. However, when they opt for the immaculate attentions of a hotel staff, here are their top picks.
Paris Hilton at The Little Nell

1. The Little Nell
Located at the base of Aspen Mountain, The Little Nell offers five-star service with slopeside access. These amenities make it a favorite among the star-studded crowd who prefer to shy from public attention. The 92-room Little Nell has been a celebrity magnet for two decades. After skiing a few runs, celebs can enjoy aprés ski with cheese fondue and truffle fries—without being hassled. A usual aprés-ski at the Little Nell’s Living Room can seem like a red-carpet event. Britney Spears, Kevin Federline, Goldie Hawn, Kate Hudson, Katie Couric, and Gregory Peck’s son, Tony, were once all spotted in a single day.

2. Viceroy Snowmass
Bigger rooms, fewer people and exceptional service. This is standard fare with Viceroy properties and why celebrities choose this Snowmass locale. From rock stars playing at Belly Up to Hollywood families looking for the variety of kid-friendly amenities, the Viceroy has cornered a celebrity market which isn't offered in Aspen. Secret's out!

3. The St. Regis Aspen
Over event weekends, like the Food & Wine Classic and New Year's Eve, look no further than The St. Regis for Hollywood faces. The Chefs Club restaurant regularly features celebrity chefs. Year-round, media moguls mix with start-up icons in the hotel's welcoming lobby bar. By the pool, executives share ideas over slushy drinks. You never know who you might see, but there's always someone famous at The St. Regis Aspen.

4. Hotel Jerome
With its Todd-Avery Lenahan-designed renovation last winter, the Hotel Jerome reclaimed its place as the crown jewel of Aspen. And with it came crown-jewel guests. Over the Aspen Ideas Festival, worldwide luminaries made the property their temporary home. By day, celebrities gather in the contemporary-meets-Western lounge; by night, they retire to historic hotel rooms.

5. The Sky Hotel
One of the hippest hotels in Aspen, The Sky Hotel is a must for aprés-ski for the millennial crowd. Celebrities regularly stop by 39 Degrees to scope the scene, which often features DJs on weekends; poolside revelers; and girls in bikinis drinking cocktails, earning its accolade as one of Playboy's hottest pool scenes in the country.
