“Great stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2012

I grew up in Aspen and during our engagement party there was no room in the house for us, so we decided to get a room at Sky. Very large beds that are comfortable, great climate control and large bathrooms. We had the front room over looking the pool on the second level, and during the summer the patio is regularly rented out for parties, so if you hate noisy rooms stay away from the pool! Speaking of the pool, it is a main attraction for locals to hang out and eat the amazing Truffle Fries!!! There is nothing like a froufrou cocktail in the hot tub, or take a dip in the year round heated pool! All of the food at 39 degrees is spectacular.

One of the most notable features of the hotel is the crazy, extravagant decor. They have giant white chairs with soaring backs and interesting light installments. Passing through the lobby is 39 degrees lounge, bar and restaurant. They have a cozy bar area with booths, loungers, and action-sports films to entertain you. In the winter it is lovely to curl up next to the fire with a Snuggler (peppermint schnapps and hot chocolate.) This is a boutique hotel and the service is exemplary. Sky is located at the base of Aspen Mountain and you can ski-in/ski-out to the Silver Queen Gondola. They provide robes for all ages in zebra and leopard patterns! They are also pet-friendly with in-house dogs to great the guests!

Room Tip: If you desire relaxation and peace, avoid rooming by the pool area.

As a family of 2 adults and one 12 year old the Sky Hotel exceeded all our requirements. The room was spacious, warm, and very clean.Tom and Matt at the downstairs Ski Hire were fantastic. The boys knowledge and friendly personality made us feel like friends, not customers. Parker,the night manager, has had such an amazing life, and was happy to share his knowledge of Aspen history with us.
We will be telling our friends what a fantastic time we had a the Sky Hotel.

Stayed for two nights with af friend. Loved the hotel bar and pool/hot tub. Very chic. Room was just okay. Nothing remarkable in the decor or amenities for the money. Motel type set up where you walk outside to get to your room. Have had to walk outside before but usually at resorts where your room is a more like a separate condo. Overall satisfactory experience but not a great value for your dollar. If you like a "scene" the bar has a good apres ski scene.

I just returned from a four night stay at The Sky. The hotel was gorgeous, and the perfect place to stay for skiing and enjoying Aspen. The hotel is clean and the room was always spotless. Everyone who worked at the hotel, from front desk to doormen to waiters, provided excellent service and were very friendly. They remembered us everytime we came to eat or walked by. The location was great- skiied right off the mountain to the hotel. The ski shop on property was very convenient and the guys who worked there were great. As hotel guests we got a nice discount.
Some nice extra amenities were the free in-town shuttle, comp breakfast buffet and hot chocolate in the lobby in the afternoon (great when returning from skiing!).
It was family friendly but still had a great vibe and fun apres ski scene.
Highly recommend this hotel. When I return to Aspen I will definitely stay there and recommend it to anyone traveling there.

On a trip to Glenwood Springs late this summer we decided to go on further to Aspen for a night. We didn't have any reservations or place in mind to stay. While renting bikes for the day we asked the owner of the shop where would be a good place to stay on such short notice. He recommended Sky Hotel. What a great find! The hotel decor is what I would describe as retro/modern. Pool/hot tub area is fabulous, staff was all super friendly. Happy hour for guests included a meet and greet with their head chef. We took a standard room. While small, it was very comfortable and quiet. Loved the Keurig coffee maker in the room, and the zebra and leopard print bathrobes!

Most of the guests were younger (20's-30's), the atmosphere is laid back and easy going. At least while we were there during an "off season" time. The hostess told us that their bar and pool area is very popular and great party place for locals and non-guests. When we got back from dinner later that evening the bar/lounge area was packed but not a" rowdy bar " atmosphere. Again, I must remind you, it was during the week and at a slow time, we heard that in the height of the season it can be pretty crazy and busy.

(A few of the locals told us that in the Fall during the week and February after most of the ski visitors leave is a great time to visit when things seem to quiet down. If thats what you are looking for.)

Breakfast the next morning in their bar/lounge area by the fireplace was wonderful, the laid back atmosphere caused us to linger by the fireplace sipping coffee long after breakfast was done.

We can't wait to go back.....when everyone else leaves!
