“THE BEST!”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

This place is awesome. Old school on steroids. Everything is totally functional and you feel like you're in a real ski chalet. Insane location, rooms fine, tv better than a lot of five star hotels, beds comfy, breakfast fun, hot tub hot -- this place is a gem

This is our fourth year staying at the family owned and run Mountain Chalet in Aspen. If you plan to ski all day while you're in Aspen and don't want to be bothered with renting a car then this is the place for you. It is conveniently located to Ruby Park transit where you can hop on a bus to any of the three ski mountains or walk to Aspen Mountain (a/k/a Ajax). The place is not fancy like the neighboring St. Regis but it offers clean rooms and hot breakfast in the morning at a fraction of the price.

We loved the Mountain Chalet-they were incredibly flexible and made our day special. Their caterer was amazing and after cooking our reception meal, went to Lance Armstrong's house to cook for a dinner party for him. A great homemade breakfast is served each morning for guests that stay at the Chalet. Adrien in events is fantastic, very down to earth, easy to work-with and makes your day stress free. They do not charge extra for linens or china and they are dog friendly!

Room Tip: The apartments are great!

Opened in 1954 by Ralph and Marion Melville, the Mountain Chalet has retained the old Aspen charm and comfort. Currently run (extremely well) by son, Craig, the ambience is super friendly, from staff to guests -- it's contagious. Ralph and Marion still make almost daily appearances; old habits are hard to break. If you want extreme pampering and luxury, go across the street to the St. Regis -- at triple the price. Otherwise, enjoy a real Aspen experience at the Mountain Chalet.

Staff is super friendly. The Davos Suite is large and includes everything you need to have lunches in the room (microwave, table, utensils, plates, etc.). They had a portable crib we were able to us which was great. Loved the cookies and hot coco/cappuccino available all the time. Loved that they have board games you can check out. Enjoyed the game room with pool, Foosball, table tennis, and poker and the workout facility was exactly all we needed. The breakfasts were DELICIOUS!

The location is wonderful, the staff were friendly and very helpful (I stayed during the government shutdown), includes full, fresh made breakfast. Came for hiking in the fall colors and the price in Oct was very reasonable. Simple accomodations but great atmosphere.

The Mountain Chalet really is our 'home away from home' with the distinction of being located in beautiful Aspen. We feel welcomed from the moment we arrive and return to the same room we consider our own. The lobby is cozy with cookies, bottomless coffee, hot chocolate and the best staff! The home cooked breakfast with squeeze your own orange juice is amazing. It is another area where you can meet and greet old friends and new. Again, the staff is warm and accomodating. We look forward to meeting the Melvilles one day so that we can tell them how much we appreciate what the Mountain Chalet means to our stay in Aspen.

Max G,
I'm not sure how we missed you--there are usually lots of us Melvilles around to meet. But we're glad you enjoyed the more important parts of your stay with us in Aspen. Come again and we'll try to say Hi!
