The Sky Hotel in Aspen is a great place to stay. It is perfectly located slopeside. The lobby decor is....borderline tacky, BUT in a very likeable way. It's sort of retro-70's meets Park Avenue if Park Ave. were in South Beach. The bar is spacious and perhaps could be decorated a bit cozier, but because it's usually buzzing with people, you wouldn't even notice this. The food at the bar is quite good and moderately priced. The heated pool, just outside the bar, is the perfect temperature and well worth a dip - as long as you can pull off the complimentary animal print robes (which will keep you cozy on the way back to your room). Oddly, a trip to the pool presented the only glitch in our trip (the robe in my closet - that i had never worn - had an old tissue in it and when asked, the front desk forgot to bring a new one out to me at the pool. They also forgot to bring us slippers - but the stone walkways are heated, so everything worked out just fine).
The rooms are very comfy with a great mini-bar and neat ammenities. I'd imagine at the very least, the bathrooms will get a make-over soon. They are very clean and ample in size, but the design falls short of the designer style of the rest of the hotel.
I have stayed at The Sky twice once on my own as a single 30-something, and the 2nd time with my boyfriend. Both times I encountered helpful and friendly staff. I enjoyed a quiet, cozy room (very comfy bed) with a nice balcony - and on the 2nd trip - an in-room gas fireplace. Both times I stayed in an 'interior' room, they also have exterior entrance rooms. There are a few nice hotels in Apsen, but if you want a stylish atmosphere, that's not pretentious, a perfect location, fabulous L'Occitane toiletries and to be 'in the center of everything Aspen' - stay at The Sky and you won't be disappointed.
