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. 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, Champalimaud Design, and Luis Bustamante 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.'
