Little Nell’s Big Makeover

 

Have you heard? The Little Nell in Aspen has closed its doors for a major refurbishment and will reopen December 1, in time for ski season. The $18 million redesign is being done by Holly Hunt—her clients include Brad Pitt and Ellen DeGeneres.

This is the first major overhaul since the hotel opened 20 years ago. What to expect? Quite simply: out with the old, in with the new. The Little Nell will emerge with a “refreshed contemporary look” (think modern artwork, wide leather chairs, stained walnut tables and linen-covered headboards). The renovation includes guest rooms, junior suites and public spaces.

Top Suite: The Paepcke and Pfeifer Suites are a mouthful, but they are also the top accommodations. The latter is the only suite at the hotel that is a self-contained, two-bedroom and two-and-a-half bathroom accommodation. Touches include two balconies, a gas-log fireplace, Jacuzzi tub and views of Aspen Mountain. These suites, having already had prior renovations, will only receive minor additions this time around.

Word is, to celebrate the reopening, The Little Nell is offering a Ski-Free package, which allows guests to receive up to two free lift tickets. For details, visit www.luxuryta.com/littlenell.
