U.S. News Review

The Kimpton brand's reputation for fun and funky decor melds surprisingly well with traditional Aspen style at the Sky Hotel. While bright colors and bold patterns abound, small tributes to local tradition  — like massive fireplaces and pillowcases adorned with aspen tree trunk designs — add a rustic touch. Guests love the Sky Hotel's location (neighboring The Little Nell at the base of Aspen Mountain), and its outdoor pool and hot tub. The guest rooms also receive a thumbs-up, with visitors praising the lively colors and patterns, the exposed wooden beams and the wireless Internet access (free for members of the Kimpton Karma loyalty program). And thanks to the brand's pet-friendly nature, you won't have to worry about ponying up lofty fees for Fido or Fluffy. However, some recent guests complain of nighttime noise from the street below; if you can't sleep, you can always head to the 39 Degrees Lounge for a nightcap.
