The Little Nell's 30th Anniversary

The Little Nell first opened our doors on Thanksgiving Day of 1989. Three decades later, our guests have become dear friends whom we welcome back each year and our staff have become like family, leading interesting lives not only in Aspen, but all over the world. Since our debut, we have received numerous honors, awards and accolades; opened more champagne than is imaginable, as well as new restaurants both at the hotel and at the top of Aspen Mountain. We have renovated multiple times, hosted fabulous dinners and parties, and celebrated with thousands of couples for their weddings and receptions.

To commemorate the celebration, our Pearl Anniversary festivities kicked off on Thursday, November 28, and will continue all ski season-long with partnerships, promotions and, of course, parties!

Among them are a Rollback Rate on rooms on Thursday, Nov. 28; a Dinner Through the Decades with past chefs and sommeliers on Friday, Nov. 29; an '80s-themed après-ski party on Saturday, Dec. 14; rejuvenating spa treatments; plus much more.
