My wife and I stayed at the St. Regis from 09/25/09-10/02/09 for our 3rd wedding anniversary. We were picked up at the Airport in a Mercedes Benz SUV and had access to a convertible and sedan Benz for the duration of our trip for FREE. Jose picked us up at the airport and he was funny and had a great personality. The wife and I took the convertible to Independence Pass and had the top down. It was beautiful. The front desk was awesome and we were upgraded to a room with a fire place and had a bottle of bubbly delivered to our room the first night as a gift from the hotel, All the workers went above and beyond their duties. The hotel restaurant had some great food. I had the lamb chops and potatoes and the wife had the chicken and rice. Both were very tasteful. One of the waiter's was not all that friendly but everyone else was friendly. During turndown at night the maid folded our dirty clothes and place them in neat piles. The also turned on the humidifior and romantic music.
Social Restaurant: This is a tapas restaurant and the most of the food was great. The service was good. We had the skirt steak, mac and cheese, raw tuna and dolce Deleche Bannanas. The tuna was ok but it was too much raw tuna for us. Everything else was really good.
Big Wrap: Local sandwhich shop. We had the Swift kick and Bab B Que wraps. There were ok.
Boogies Diner: The food is not worth the price you have to pay. The gigantic burger was ok. Milk Shakes cost $6.50 each and were no bigger then a small Mcdonalds milk shake,
Hickory House: Their claim to fame is the best ribs in Colorado. I got the beast combo. The beef and pork were dry. The wife got the fried catfish and that was really good. The mashed potatoes were good. The coleslaw was good. The potatoe salad was nasty. If this is the best rib place in Coloroado I feel sorry for people in Colorado.
N9NE Steakhouse: This was the best and most expensive meal we had in Aspen. Evan our waiter was great. The wife had the Kobe Steak and it was great. I had the Kobe burger and it was no better then any other hamburger I have had, Mac and cheese and Gina's potatoes were really good.
NY Pizza: We had this the last night we were there and the pizza was big like in NYC and it was tasty. Each slice cost $4 for one topping.
Independence Pass: This is a must see. Take the convertible and let the top down. The ride up to the pass and back down is beautiful. You will pas on several narrow roads and people ridig bikes up and down the pass. The ride is about 45-60 min from the hotel but it well worth it. Take a few minutes to look around at the pass and take pictures.
Silver queen Gondola: It was fun riding up to the top of Aspen Mountian and taking pictures.
Shopping: There is plenty of HIGH END shooping in the 4 square miles of the city of Aspen. Everything is within walking distance of the St Regis.
Ironbridge Golf Course: The couse to play. It is about 45 min for the hotel but again you can take a Benz to play. Pictures or descriptions don't do this course justice especially the back 9. The prettiest hole in Number 12.
I am from the south and am used to southern hospitality. Most of the people in the stores were polite and greeted you when you came in and left. Their was one art store where they did not speak at all so I let myself be known. The people do not speak to you on the street. That took some getting used to.
