Thanks to a recent multimillion dollar facelift, the historic Hotel Jerome shines even brighter as Aspen’s crown jewel. Situated in a brick building built in the 1880s, the Auberge Resorts property serves as one of the top luxury mountain ski resort hotels fit for everyone from celebrities (think Kevin Costner and Chelsea Handler) to socialites.
The property’s stunning interior décor is the brainchild of designer Todd-Avery Lenahan. Both interesting and well-done, you’ll welcome the mix of modern and chic elements combined with the woodsy mountain lodge feel. Expect to see custom-made carved wooden furnishings, the use of cowhides and taxidermy, and unique light fixtures throughout.
After a long day of skiing, come back to the Living Room (lobby area) to savor small jars filled with goat’s milk cheddar pimento cheese and bacon-brown sugar shallots while enjoying an Arancini Spritz (Aperol, Carpano Antica, Amaro Montenegro and sparkling wine). And after relaxing by the warming fireplace in a Le Corbusier chair, soak in one of the two outdoor Jacuzzis, heated pool or head to the luxury hotel’s game room for a little Xbox 360 action (think Just Dance 4) before calling it a night.
