You won't need a rental car if you stay here. It's walking distance to anywhere u need to go. They have a free shuttle that'll take you wherever till 1am. Although I did enjoy my stay I'm not too sure the staff takes to black ppl too kindly. Employees ignored me at times to serve other white customers then and when i asked for a Tylenol for my girlfriend I was directed to a nearby pharmacy. Only to have another employee bring me some as soon as she walks off. Stating I'm sorry she doesn't like to give this stuff away.

Great Hippie hotel, right by the Gondola

4 out of 5
by from delray beach
Posted Jan 16, 2017
Located right on the bottom of the Gondola, the hotel offers free wine to guests from 5-6 PM in their lounge area. Busy bar with DJ around that time. Fun jacuzzi / hot tub pool area . I've heard the W purchased the hotel and will tear its old building down to re-do it soon.

Tiny rooms, very dated, not clean, worst of all they did not honor my fully prepaid reservation family of 6 crammed into 2 tiny rooms with out enough beds to sleep in. Great family experience ruined by dishonest hotel !!

I am so sorry that the Sky Hotel did not meet your requirements. I wish that we had known about the issue. We do have rollaways beds available, and perhaps we could have moved you to larger rooms. While I am so sorry about the apparent misunderstanding, I am not sure I agree with the term dishonest. Regards, Craig Craig Thompson CHA General Manager

It was a great experience, everybody was very nice, willing to help and very friendly. Rooms were clean and kept in good condition. We travelled a lot and this one is one place where we will return. Price vs Quality, you can't get it any better for Aspen!! Now, if you are willing to spend the big bucks on the hotel you can def find way more expensive ones but you def pay the price!!!!!

Sky Hotel - Good for the basics

3 out of 5
by from Friendswood, United States of America
Posted Nov 1, 2016
Pros: Location
Cons: Few amenities - just the basics.
Location: Perfect location - everything within walking distance.
My boyfriend and I took a quick 3 day getaway to Aspen in the off season. We stayed at the Sky Hotel. It was a great location, but it's older, a little outdated, no coffee in the room, and no room service.

Thanks so much for your feedback regarding your visit to the SKY hotel. Just wanted to say that we do offer complimentary coffee from 5 am to 10 am daily served in the lobby, and we have complimentary coffee makers (and coffee) available on request . Room service hours are modified to dinner only in our off season, but we begin full room service on Thanksgiving day the first day the Mountain opens. On that date we offer nightly turn down service,full concierge service, and a beautiful breakfast buffet. Plus, we have the best Apres ski in Aspen. Looking forward to serving you again in the hopefully near future.

Location is great and staff is wonderful, but the hotel is in serious need of updating. Rooms are not cleaned well...clearly a rush job and missing trash, like earbuds around the room.

Convenient, comfortable and courteous staff

Posted Sep 24, 2016
Pros: Staff and location
Cons: needs a spa
Location: this hotel is at the base of Aspen mountain. it couldn't be closer to everything town has to offer.
I had a great stay at the Sky Hotel. The location is extremely convenient and if any of your destinations are slightly further than you prefer to walk, then the staff is able to drive you at a moment's notice.
