W Aspen is the town’s first luxury hotel to open in over 25 years. Drawing inspiration from the region’s Ute tribe, the town’s mining history, and ’60s and ’70s counterculture, this ski-in/ski-out hotel offers plenty of fun at the base of Aspen Mountain. With a chalet-like exterior, wood finishes, and locally commissioned murals and prints, this hotel is one of its own. Once the sun sets, a fireplace on the second-floor communal Living Room comes alive inviting skiers and snowboarders to easily transition from the mountain into après-mode. Take it all in at the rooftop deck that features fire pits, hot tubs, and a dance floor.
