The Kids are Alright

How The Little Nell pampers its youngest guests

Aspen might be known as a playground for the rich and famous, but we’ll argue it’s a playground for everyone — especially the kiddos.

At The Little Nell, the youngest guests enjoy perhaps the best perks.

In the guest rooms, the wee ones adore their own special bath mitt and bubble bath, while the little tykes cozy up in children’s sized robes and slippers. Older kids can spend hours making up Western tales in their own kids’ tee-pee, and teens will especially appreciate the 48-inch flat screen LED television with a video-on-demand system.

Also at the hotel, everyone loves the outdoor pool and hot tubs, as well as the complimentary road bikes and kids’ bikes (for the older kids) and free around-town shuttle (for toting those toddlers around). The Little Nell can also provide guests with the gear they need, from strollers and car seats to highchairs and toddler beds.

And beyond, into the town of Aspen, the family-friendly fun doesn’t end. From the dancing waters of the Hyman Avenue fountain to free family programming at the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies to parks aplenty for picnicking and playing, Aspen is ground zero for kids. Just ask the Nell’s concierge staff to point you in the right direction – you really can’t go wrong on a summer’s day in Aspen.

As Curtis W. wrote on Trip Advisor under the headline “Fantastic family trip”: “With it sitting at the bottom of aspen mountain and a stone’s throw from the gondola (no seriously it’s that close to the gondola) to the top the location is fantastic. Walk out the front door and go to the right and you’re at the trail to hike the ute, go left, and it’s shopping restaurants and adventure outings. The hospitality staff was fantastic; we were picked up at our jet by one of their Cadillacs right off the jet-way, no walking or golf cart to get to the terminal and had a very nice ride back, our driver knew all our names and was fantastic as to references to places for lunch that afternoon. You will never have to go far for fruit infused waters (strawberry mint is the best), and the breakfast buffet is top notch. Fantastic just isn’t good enough to describe the experience. It will make your list of annual trips.”
