The Little Nell boasts famous guests such as Beyoncé and Heidi Klum and there’s really no question why – this place is the perfect getaway for both summer and winter.

The contemporary style alpine accommodation includes 92 rooms and 14 suites for its guests, and is the only hotel on Aspen Mountain that has ski-in and ski-out access to the mountain. Rooms feature fireplaces, heated marble floors, balconies with mountain views and even a jacuzzi.

And did we mention the heated outdoor pools? Relax outdoors overlooking the greater Aspen region with a wine in one hand and a good book in the other. It’s what Beyoncé would do.

It’s also the perfect spot to warm up after a day on the slopes while you treat yourself to a signature Little Nell hot chocolate. These badboys include Valrhona Cocoa, granulated sugar, milk, a pinch of salt and can be topped with a choice of marshmallows, whipped cream, choc chips, peppermint stick or your choice of alcohol. Supersize yours with a hint of Amaretto, Bailey’s, Frangelico, Kahlua or your fave coffee liqueur.
