My wife and I stayed at the Mountain Chalet in Aspen for six nights the first week of August. The Mountain Chalet is a charming older hotel originating in the 1950's. The view of the surrounding mountains of Aspen were absolutely gorgeous.
We arrived near midnight the first day and easily found our temporary room key left at the closed front desk. The lobby had ice water, cold lemonade, cookies, and self-brew coffee capsules.
Our room was found to be very clean and comfortable and had a mini-fridge and a free standing heater/air conditioner (although A/C not needed in Aspen in August.)
In the morning, the hotel serves a freshly made hot breakfast that changed every day that included Denver Omelets, Eggs Benedict, French Toast with bacon and eggs, etc. Along with the hot breakfast is a buffet cold bar that included cereals, toast, bagels, fruits, and a fresh orange juice machine which guests drop in fresh oranges to receive fresh juice. All of the cooks and wait staff were extremely friendly and helpful, some even showing my wife and I pictures of mountain wildlife they had taken during hikes.
The outdoor heated pool and surrounding area was very clean and well-kept. The hotel also has a spa and sauna which we did not use but looked inviting.
We also found the housekeeping staff and front desk personnel to have been as nice and friendly as the previously mentioned breakfast staff. The different front desk men and women we spoke with at various times were also extremely helpful with our questions about backpacking routes, wildlife, elevation issues. One even drew us a map showing the way to a particular trail head.
Based on the above, we would not hesitate to recommend the Mountain Chalet Aspen to any traveler wanting a reasonably priced, clean well-kept, family-run hotel with a friendly, amiable staff.
