Why We Like It

Apart from its premium location at the foot of Aspen Mountain which goes without saying, The Little Nell brings together luxury and style that epitomizes modern-day notions of Aspen without compromising the small town charm on which it is founded. Its fine-dining restaurant, ‘element 47’, is Aspen’s newest restaurant and opens its doors to a new concept of haute cuisine, forging the way for soulful American cooking based on fresh seasonal ingredients to be appreciated in a luxury setting. The Little Nell also has an Adventure program organized with the expected flair synonymous of the hotel and that includes an array of fun activities such as fly fishing, biking and golfing, as well as some that are more obscure – why not try Cowboy Camp, stand-up paddle boarding or Geocaching? On this basis and more, it is easy to see why The Little Nell has earned its reputation as Aspen’s most legendary hotel and a place on in our hearts.
