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.' Guests seek the opportunity to spend treasured time together, to enjoy unique and memorable activities, to embrace life at its best. The Little Nell nourishes each moment along the way – from doorstep to dining room to guest suites to the slopes.
