It’s a privilege to live and work in this Eden in the sky. So we’re very conscious of our responsibility to protect and preserve. We’ve made deliberate changes in how we operate the hotel, taking great care not to compromise quality. We were rewarded with the Colorado Hotel and Lodging Association's Hospitality Green Award in 2011, and we’re unique among Five-Star hotels to have earned an ISO14001 Certification. We use energy-efficient lighting throughout, and we’ve cut CO2 emissions by 300 tons a year by replacing our boilers. Our largest suite is powered by a 5,000-watt solar panel system. Much of our food is locally sourced. And we also provide Aspen tap water in place of bottled water during turndown service.

We invite our guests to help to maintain the magnificent ecosystem we enjoy here, and encourage you to read the full breadth of our environmental initiatives (located in your room with our favorite local magazines) or request a copy once you arrive.

Environmental Foundation

Through a nightly donation of $2 to the employee run Environmental Foundation, you will help to protect and sustain local, beautiful environment that we live and play in. Each $2 donation is matched by an additional $2 donation from The Little Nell. As a guest, you are presented with the opportunity to make this donation upon check-in. Should you wish to decline, please contact the Front Desk at ext. 6363.


This initiative takes things a step further. In the program we launder linens and towels every three days, instead of daily, and provide recycling receptacles in your closet for plastic, paper, aluminum and glass. We also offer complimentary reusable water bottles for a stroll through town or a mountain hike, and we recommend you use one of the hotel’s complimentary bikes in the non-snowy seasons.
