    The Little Nell
    Aspen, CO
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 483 reviewsTripAdvisor (483)
    Free WiFi

    Sitting at the base of Aspen Mountain on the southern edge of town, The Little Nell caters to snow junkies with on-site services such as a Ski Concierge team (who can secure everything from lift tickets to ski rentals) and an equipment storage center. However, guests say that the hotel's proximity to powder isn't the only reason to book. The Little Nell's two in-house restaurants  element47 and Ajax Tavern  earn high praise for their artfully prepared plates, and the hotel spa is ideal for post-skiing relaxation. Although you won't be spending much time indoors, you can look forward to resting up in a spacious and inviting guest room, surrounded by warm, soothing cream-colored hues, a gas fireplace, a well-stocked minibar and a flat-screen TV. And, like they do at The Little Nell's sister property, the Ojai Valley Inn in California, recent guests give the customer service two thumbs up, saying that the hotel's employees were some of the nicest they'd ever met.

    The Sebastian – Vail, A Timbers Resort has makes a good impression among boutique hotel fans, with many recent guests saying that the customer service is some of the best they've ever experienced. While this Preferred LVX hotel strives to maintain the ambiance of a classic ski lodge, recent visitors love the trendy atmosphere found in both the Leonora restaurant and Frost, the hotel bar.

Travelers in need of a little more space should book one of the residential suites, each of which is equipped with a full kitchen, a dining area and a gas fireplace. And if you're in need of some extra pampering, you can make an appointment at Bloom Spa, which offers a full menu of massages and skin treatments. There is an expensive daily resort fee here; however, it includes a number of five-star services, such as a ski valet, kids amenities, and access to Wi-Fi and the on-site fitness center.

    Sonnenalp Hotel
    Vail, CO
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 1279 reviewsTripAdvisor (1279)
    Free Breakfast
    Free WiFi

    Towering over central Vail, this chalet-style resort doesn't skimp on coziness. With sweeping vistas of either the Vail Village or Gore Creek, each guest room features Rocky Mountain touches like custom-made Bavarian furniture, gas fireplaces and heated floors. The traditional lodge design carries over into the resort's four dining areas, each boasting wood furnishings and a rustic ambiance. Sonnenalp caters primarily to skiers, and visitors found both the resort's location and the ski concierge service to be extremely convenient. Even if you don't plan on tackling the slopes, you shouldn't rule out this resort; Sonnenalp offers a variety of ways to stay active that don't involve snow. The championship Sonnenalp Golf Club, for example, features 7,100 yards of rolling fairways and pesky sand traps. Meanwhile, the outdoor pool and cozy Sonnenalp Spa both provide a fantastic setting for rest and relaxation. Yet despite all its offerings, guests point to the hotel staff as the main reason to book here. Recent visitors say they were made to feel special by the hotel employees and were even greeted by name upon re-entering the premises. What's more, Leaders Club members get perks like room upgrades and complimentary breakfasts at this hotel. One drawback: this resort is expensive, and daily resort and parking fees will cost you more than you may expect.

Meanwhile, the on-site Auberge Spa at Hotel Jerome provides a full menu of services geared toward helping you unwind after a day on the slopes. And the American bistro dishes served at Prospect and the tasty drinks and light fare at J-Bar are sure to satisfy your appetite. But according to guest reviews, it's the Hotel Jerome's warm, friendly staff that makes a stay at this property truly memorable. Travelers say that Hotel Jerome's employees were quick to handle service requests and offer suggestions for things to do or places to eat.

    Nestled at the base of the Telluride Ski Resort in Mountain Village, The Lumière with Inspirato makes a great home base for both winter and summer visitors. The boutique property's stunning stone façade houses simple-yet-elegant interiors, characterized by hardwood floors, leather upholstery and cozy fireplaces.

Guests love the hotel's relaxing atmosphere, as well as its proximity to the slopes. And in true Colorado fashion, the Lumière proudly offers ski valet and storage services alongside complimentary après-ski cookies and cakes. Although you may not have access to certain perks during the summer months, the hotel's on-site pool and easy access to Telluride's hiking paths and mountain shops make a warm weather visit worth considering as well. Be warned, though: a stay here is not cheap.

    Free WiFi

    Flanking the Telluride Ski Resort in Mountain Village, the Madeline Hotel & Residences looks like a traditional chalet.

The property's pet-friendly accommodations come equipped with flat-screen TVs, deep soaking tubs, complimentary Wi-Fi access and mountain views. Meanwhile, ample amenities like a pool and a full-service spa (both guest favorites) will keep you busy when you're not on the slopes. There's two on-site restaurants, as well as Dylan's Candy Bar store and a Starbucks. But even with the laundry list of offerings, travelers say it's the friendly staff that keeps them wanting to come back again and again. The hotel is a part of the Auberge Resorts Collection, which means guests should expect luxurious and helpful concierge services while here (daily resort fee applies).

    Free Breakfast
    Free WiFi

    Although it might look large from the outside, the Inn at Lost Creek features only 32 accommodations. But these 32 suites are some of the largest you'll find in the area. Each space features a kitchenette, a private Juliette balcony, a jetted tub and in-suite laundry machines. Guests relish the space and praise the inn for extra amenities such as the golf valet, ski valet and on-site whirlpools. Speaking of skiing, the Inn at Lost Creek's location – on the slopes of the Telluride Ski Resort – makes it an ideal home base for winter sports enthusiasts. But if you're not a snow bunny, you can spend your days relaxing in your rooms or dining on Asian cuisine at Siam's Talay Grille.

    Located in Denver's LoDo district — just blocks from Coors Field and Elitch Gardens — this boutique hotel knows luxury like the back of its hand. Rooms come with ornate wooden beds and sport a variety of tech-friendly extras, such as plasma TVs, Bose radios and iPod docking stations.

    Describing itself as "modern mountain luxury, perfected," The Osprey at Beaver Creek melds traditional Colorado style (think stone fireplaces and cozy throw blankets) with bright orange and blue accents and sleek furnishings. Like its sister hotels (The Lodge at Vail and The Arrabelle), this RockResort caters to the high-end ski crowd with easy access to the Beaver Creek Ski Resort, personalized concierge services and a heated deck for après-ski mingling. Guests love the heated pool deck — where you'll find the outdoor pool and the hot tub — which offers breathtaking mountain views. For its convenient location and its spacious guest rooms (some equipped with fireplaces and steam showers), The Osprey is one of Vail's better bargains, according to recent visitors. And to top it off, the resort's customer service is described as excellent.

    Kimpton Hotel Monaco Denver
    Denver, CO
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1586 reviewsTripAdvisor (1586)

    When it comes to glitz and glamour, you can't go wrong with the Hotel Monaco. This funky hotel lives up to the Monaco's reputation, catering to the trendy set with its brightly colored furniture and chic artistic flair. The hotel lobby's fun decor makes it an excellent spot for an evening drink; like all Kimpton brand properties, the Hotel Monaco Denver offers its guests complimentary wine and coffee every day. Meanwhile, the guest rooms are just as stylish as the common areas, with patterned drapes and matching throw pillows evoking a Victorian-era mansion, while animal print blankets and clashing hues almost overwhelm the senses – but not quite. Previous guests are also fond of the in-house VEDA Salon & Spa and the northern Italian dishes served at Panzano Restaurant. Recent visitors also had high praise for the friendly staff and nightly wine hour, but what guests love most about the Hotel Monaco is its location in the heart of downtown Denver, just a few blocks from Larimer Square. Keep in mind that an ideal location means expensive parking rates though.

    As its names suggests, this resort offers unparalleled views of the Garden of the Gods and the Rocky Mountains from its perch just north of Colorado Springs, Colorado. Aside from the landmark vantage point, which guests can enjoy from their guest room's balcony or patio, each room and suite is equipped with a minifridge, Gilchrist & Soames toiletries, a fireplace and an iPod docking station. When you're not admiring the resort's enviable perch from your balcony, take in the views during a round of golf on the 27-hole course. The resort offers plenty of ways to work up a sweat, including tennis courts, a fitness center and a recreation center, which boasts a junior Olympic-size swimming pool, a playground and a basketball court. If you'd rather relax, the property also features a full-service spa and a heated outdoor infinity pool. Along with the many facilities, past guests raved about the on-site dining, which is composed of three restaurants. However, recent visitors said they'd return for the amazing views alone.

    Like its fellow Marriott property, The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa, The Westin Riverfront Mountain Villas offers guests easy access to the nearby Vail and Beaver Creek slopes. This property also touts all the usual Westin amenities, including Heavenly beds, access to a fully outfitted fitness center and complimentary Internet access.

    Sky Hotel, A Kimpton Hotel
    Aspen, CO
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 487 reviewsTripAdvisor (487)

    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 present throughout. A downside, though, was the fee for wireless Internet access (but it is 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 paying lofty fees for Fido or Fluffy. When you get hungry, head to the on-site 39 Degrees Lounge for a meal or a nightcap.

    Located about 21 miles west of Vail in Edwards, Colorado, The Lodge & Spa at Cordillera offers both easy access to nearby skiing as well as an escape from the traditional powder-hound haunts. Touting itself as "an all season resort offering unparalleled experiences," this expansive resort beckons to R&R-seekers with its golf course connections and Spa at Cordillera. When you're not on the greens or in the steam room, you can be kicking back by the pool or snacking on mouthwatering eats at one of two restaurants, Mirador and Grouse on the Green. But what recent visitors are really raving about are the breathtaking views of Vail Valley, which you can enjoy from your guest room's private balcony. For an extra cozy stay, request a room with a wood-burning fireplace.
