Named after a mining claim originally located not far uphill from where the hotel sits today, The Little Nell opened in 1989 and quickly began attracting a diverse international clientele, including celebrities, dignitaries, Fortune 500 magnates and political leaders. One of the The Little Nell, a Relais & Châteaux resort, is proud to offer the only ski-in/ski-out access to Aspen Mountain as well as be the only Forbes Five-Star, AAA Five-Diamond, property in Aspen. Since opening, The Little Nell has worked with designers including Holly Hunt, Bentel & Bentel and Champalimaud Design, LLC to create a cosmopolitan yet intimate, contemporary yet timeless atmosphere. The Little Nell celebrates the bonds between people and guests travel from all corners of the world to be a part of what's known as 'the quintessential Aspen experience.' Guests seek the opportunity to spend treasured time together, to enjoy unique and memorable activities, to embrace life at its best.

Set in the heart of downtown Aspen, the first Limelight Hotel set the tone as a property welcoming visitors and locals alike, known for a spacious living room and bar, Limelight welcomes outlaws and skiers alike in the spirit of the Wild West. With a nod to this adventurous spirit, the Limelight Hotels brand also includes Ketchum near Sun Valley, Idaho, and Snowmass, Colorado, offering unfussy luxury in each setting.
