We had to cancel a trip to Aspen last year for medical reasons and the hotel gave us one year to use the pre-paid vacation -- that was the first of many outstanding customer service experiences! Gerry picked us up very late at the airport and when we discovered most restaurants were closed, he graciously offered to drive us around town so we could get some dinner; this included sight-seeing and recommendations on things to do and places to eat. Chris was the desk clerk who checked us in and was extremely helpful and friendly that night and on subsequent days when we needed directions and help with reservations. Actually, the entire staff was friendly and helpful and our suite was perfect, especially the amount of space and views of the mountains. We did not bother to rent a car as everything was in walking distance and we always had the shuttle if we needed a ride.
There are wonderful restaurants and shops and outstanding hiking in this area and the people in Aspen are much more laid back than the East Coast, probably because of the great weather and small town atmosphere.
We had a spectacular jeep tour up to Taylor Pass with Blazing Adventures and our guide, John Bokram was outstanding with a plethora of facts about the area and a great sense of humor.
This is a dog-friendly town, too which gets extra points on our favorite places to go list.
Best restaurants: Jimmy's, White House, L'ostaria
