The Residence Hotel
Ranked #17 of 35 Hotels in Aspen
Reviewed 4 September 2011

We just spent 2 nights of our Labor Day weekend at Aspen Snowmass Jazz Fest and chose The Residence Hotel for this special weekend/occasion. I don't write reviews on Trip Advisor often but when I have an experience so exceptional, I feel praise is due. Ideal location! The property is in the heart of Aspen, literally on the pedestrian mall. The room and bathroom were enormous, the bed was outrageously comfy and collection of antiques, furniture and artwork is impressive. The fact that this lovely hotel is pet-friendly was the icing on the cake!

Room Tip: Some of the rooms are actually large apartments with full kitchens.

Our stay at the Residence Aspen was awesome. From calling restaurants to find out what specials they had that evening to making sure our entire group was comfortable in our suites, the personal attention was what really "made" our stay. Our family of 9 stayed in 4 of the suites and each one was fantastic. We loved the eclectic decor - if you prefer a sleek, sterile hotel environment, this is not the place for you. The rooms were impeccably clean and, to us, it felt like staying in a luxury home, since all suites surround the sitting room/lobby, and we were able to move easily from room to room, even leaving the doors unlocked. The smallest suite we had (#2) had more than enough room for 2 adults and 2 children. The largest (#1) had a kitchen, bar, and sitting room where we all convened for wine and cheese after shopping. Each room provided coffee, dishes, glassware (even wine glasses). We were extremely pleased with our stay and would definitely recommend the Residence to others traveling to Aspen.

I have been staying at The Residence Hotel over 13 years and I return every year at least twice, once during the summer and once in winter. I feel that I have a great perspective on the hotel during these times......In the winter it is warm and cozy and during the summer it is cool and refreshing. I love the views of the Hyman St. mall outside my window with all the hustle, bustle and excitement that comes with being right downtown . Often students from the Aspen Music Festival and School play beneath my windows. This hotel is a jewel out of the past. All of the suites are decorated in a unique fashion with a European flavor with many and diverse antiques.....Due to the owner's extensive far East travels in the last few years, some of the suites reflect the Chinese and Asian cultures. Of the antiques present, the collection of 18th and 19th century royal academy art is probably the finest found in any hotel in America. The owner has run a successful hotel here for many years. If one loves Aspen and the Aspen experience, I urge one to see it before the opportunity passes you by!!!

Thanks,
Gordon R. Miller, MD

Room Tip: Each suite is distinctive. There are only eight of them and all interesting.

I had several requests and the staff could not have been more helpful. It is so CHARMING
with the authentic flavor of Aspen. All the rooms are beautifully decorated and unique. But
the location is the best! Right in the center of the village and within walking distance of
most everything you desire. I will DEFINITELY revisit and recommend to my friends and
business associates. It would be a great place to have all your family, friends, and/or a
business retreat with your colleagues.

Once we set foot into the Residence Hotel we knew there was something special about this hotel. First, the art and antiques displayed around the hotel are simply fantastic and provide something unique for every room in the hotel. Second, the location could not be any better. You have easy access to all the shopping and restaurants in town and only a short walk to the bus stop if you want to go to the other mountains. Heading back to the hotel was the perfect end to a perfect Christmas day of skiing. We will return!

We thought the place was exactly what "Aspen" should be. It was warm, quaint and friendly. My wife loved all the art and antiquities spread throughout the hotel. The room was large and included a walk-in closet with a beautifully updated bathroom. The staff was absolutely great and always made sure our every need was well tended.

This is very much one of the last "Aspen" hotels. Even the beautiful Jerome has converted their antique Victorian look into a more modern one. But we remain as antique and gorgeous as ever and hope to see you again in the future.
