You won’t find any holiday events hosted by The Little Nell, but the holidays in Aspen are enough of an event in and of themselves. Walk out the front door of the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel anytime between Christmas and New Year’s, and you’re bound to see a herd of paparazzi stalking the resident celebrities who come to town every year for the holidays (Kate Hudson, Heidi Klum and Mariah Carey included). The streets are decorated with lights and the whole town buzzes with energy. There’s an endless holiday party circuit and a packed calendar of city-sponsored events — from live outdoor concerts to a spectacular fireworks display on New Year’s Eve.
The Little Nell provides a variety of holiday events, from special menus and dinners to holiday music at the restaurants. On Christmas Day, the property holds a special activity for children. For example, in 2010, a large dog house was erected in the lobby, which housed a pair of Bernese Mountain Dogs for children to play with.
