We drove into Aspen and were disappointed that the hotels are all squeezed into the centre of the town and don't enjoy the space and beautiful scenery. So we left Aspen and drove to Snowmass - where there are a few hotels but also lots of condo's which you can rent.
The condo places aren't that used to walk-in's, but we ended up at Woodrun Place and got a great 1 bed condo for $150 a night. I'm so pleased we stayed there instead of a pokey hotel in Aspen. The condo was great - big kitchen, maid service every day, balcony and terrace with wildlife walking past our door. Swimming pool was great, and the place deserted.
We stayed five days, and on the 3rd day we came back after hiking to find some workmen drilling out the cement from a balcony from the flat next to us. There was dust everywhere and lots of noise. I enquired how long they would continue - 30 mins, and no, they wouldn't be coming back the next day.
However they did come back the day after - at 8am. We were woken up by all the noise, so went to the front desk to ask how long it would go on for - they apologised and told us it would be stopped immediatly. Four hours later and 3 trips to the front desk it was still going on and a cement truck had arrived. Why had they offered us this condo if they knew there was going to be so much disruption, and why keep on saying that it would stop when they had ordered a cement lorry?! Finally the manager offered to refund us a day's rental price, but he made it clear it was because he considered us difficult. The management are obviously not that bothered about renting the condo's out for the owners, or keeping the guests happy.
Saying all this, the condo was great and we loved Snowmass. Maybe you should ask when checking in if there will be any disruptions, so that you can plan around it?
