Hotel Jerome

A fresh take on the Old West
Thanks to a recent multimillion dollar facelift, the historic Hotel Jerome shines even brighter as Aspen’s crown jewel. Situated in an 1880s-era brick building, the Auberge Resorts property serves as one of the top luxury mountain ski resort hotels fit for everyone from celebrities 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 with the woodsy mountain lodge feel. Expect to see custom-carved wooden furnishings, the use of cowhides and taxidermy, and unique light fixtures.

After a long day of skiing, come back to the Living Room (lobby area) to savor an Arancini Spritz (Aperol, Carpano Antica, Amaro Montenegro and sparkling wine). After relaxing by the warming fireplace in a Le Corbusier chair, soak in an outdoor Jacuzzis, or head to the luxury hotel’s game room before calling it a night.
Our Inspector's Highlights
• When you walk into Hotel Jerome, you're bound to think, "I want this, I want that ..." at just about everything you look at. That is because each piece (think cashmere curtains) looks like it was styled for a magazine.

• The Aspen hotel incorporated some historical and existing elements of the hotel (such as the old mailboxes at the front desk) with new high-end furnishings (look for expertly carved oak chairs with plaid flannel upholstery) that give the property a custom feel.

• All of the details seen throughout the luxury hotel’s interior means that there is always something cool to look at such as artwork from local artists or exclusive pieces provided by the Aspen Historical Society.
Things to Know
• There are two hot tubs, one heated pool, a yoga room, business center and a large game room where guests can play Xbox or PlayStation.

• If flying in and out of the Aspen-Pitkin County Airport, Hotel Jerome offers a free lift in their Mercedes-Benz house SUVs, and guests are also free to use these vehicles during their stay for four hours at a time.

• Guests must have a drink at the Living Room. Not only is it comfortable and you can have savory handcrafted cocktails and healthy snacks (green pea hummus or house-smoked trout), but it is also a place to see and be seen in Aspen on the weekends.
The Rooms
• Guest rooms at Hotel Jerome follow the same trendy-meets-Western feel that is seen throughout the rest of the property.

• There are extraordinary moldings on the ceiling in each room and an attractive beige striped wallpaper to match the room’s brown carpeting.

• Expect to find heavy cream drapes with a solid brown stripe along the bottom and modern artwork hanging above a brown leather sofa in the living area — you’ll also spot Native American art around the room, too.

• Metallic lighting fixtures, such as golden tree trunk lamps and a saucer-shaped chrome chandelier, give the room a modern update as well.

• Helpful room amenities at the Aspen hotel include yoga mats, bathrobes and humidifiers, and there are also complimentary welcome snacks and soft drinks.
The Restaurants
• Prospect, the Aspen hotel’s American bistro, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, with main courses such as mustard crusted ruby trout with tomato, orzo, lemon-brown butter, spinach and basil to round out the clean flavors.

• For breakfast at Prospect, try the house-smoked salmon bagel with caper berry salsa.

• Picking up on a hot trend in Aspen, Mason jar appetizers combine cool ingredients with a fun presentation. Try the house-smoked trout with egg and fennel mustard or the green pea hummus with carrot marmellata.

• The Living Room serves unique cocktails, such as Smoked Raspberry Thyme Collins a spin on the traditional Tom Collins. It uses Grey Goose La Poire, mezcal, St. Germain, fresh raspberries and lime.
