5 Ways to Take in Aspen’s Ambiance

Ah, Aspen, Colorado, in the summertime—there couldn’t be a more perfect locale to get lost in the mountains, roaring rivers, cuisine or any number of activities. Event coordinator Deborah Elias, CSEP, CMP, shares her top picks for groups here.

Haute Hotels 

Your meeting or incentive should begin with a personalized airport greeting by The Little Nell. This cozy property at the base of Aspen Mountain is the only five-star hotel in the area.

Limelight Hotel is a boutique property that partners with Aspen Brewing Company to put on a great beer-and-food pairing dinner, which can be done on a terrace overlooking Aspen Mountain.

Hotel Jerome is one of the oldest hotels in the area, dating back to the silver-mining days of the late 1800s. The decor is a throwback to that era, but recent renovations include modern amenities and comforts. Make sure Aspen Crud, an unusual bourbon-and-ice cream concoction, is on your beverage or dessert menu.

Exploration Station
