Aspen Lodging

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Garyskr and I will be skiing Aspen in late January enroute to the Utah Gathering. We will need lodging for Jan 29 & 30. That's a Wed and Thurs night, so, we might find some last minute deals, but, any thoughts on reasonable places to stay? My last visit was 35 years ago, I'll never forget waking up on the first morning and seeing those mountains for the first time.

St. Moritz is about the most reasonable lodge in Aspen. One or two of the Snowmass places are supposed to be not too bad. Another alternative is to stay in Glenwood Springs which has a large selection at very reasonable prices.

Suppose to be some discounts off the Mountain Collective.  Lot's of little lodges all over Aspen that are prone to wheeling and dealing.

I would definitely stay in town if you can. Especially two wild and crazy guys!

I would prefer to stay in town and experience Aspen again. For sure, you don't know Gary or I....wild and crazy doesn't quite fit! Retired Grandfathers is much better description. We both have the mountain collective, thanks for the reminder.

I've enjoyed the Annabelle Inn and it's reasonable for Aspen, especially if you are immune to noise and take one of the "budget" rooms right on the street--I didn't do this but it sounds okay for heavy sleepers. "Reasonable for Aspen" is still not cheap of course. The bus stop is a block away (for the ski areas) and you can walk to everything in town.

Aspen Ski Corp recommended the Tyrolean (in town) or the Pokolodi (Snowmass) when I went there last week for my PSIA Level I course as cheap lodging.  I, however, got a great deal at the Little Nell ($170/night with valet parking) as an early season Colorado resident special.

I stayed at Mountain Chalet a few years ago. Great location, hot breakfast plus underground parking. Late season it was a great deal and we were able to buy two day passes for about what a one day pass costs now. And even though it was April we had new snow.

I've stayed at the St. Moritz in town many times over the past few decades.   The hostel rooms are the least expensive but quite cozy.  They have a free continental breakfast, heated pool, steam room, free popcorn and free booze at the end of the day.  The booze runs from low tier brands to mid-tier.   They have free wine till it runs out.  Had a great experience there back in the spring - snow and lodging wise.

Pokolodi at Snowmass is standard hotel fair and decent for sure but great location if skiing Snowmass and the much cheaper Snowmass inn is right next door (haven't stayed) in an even better location.  I do agree with others that staying in Aspen is preferable if you can find somrthing affordable to you.

 

See you Bozo's in Utah:cool

in case not already mentioned, the Limelight in Aspen is excellent

It provides shuttle service to Snowmass and airport.

easy walk to  Ajax and all local restaurants

Thanks all for the thoughts. Yup, I should have done a little searching before starting a new thread.:rolleyes

 

 In checking the link that tseeb offered, I did find a Last Minute Aspen Snowmanss Special website:

While it's too early to book for late January, it seems very promising.

Those are some good deals. Especially the Lenado!
I'd wait, stay in town and ski Ajax/Highlands.
