My partner and I stayed in Basalt for a couple of nights to check out Aspen over President’s Day weekend. We found the hotel to be very reasonable prices compared to similar lodging in Aspen, and it is close enough to access all four mountains with in 30-40 minutes on the BRT. The station is just outside the hotel, $3.70 one way to the base of Aspen Mountain.
We were able to buy a few things at the nearby Whole Foods, eat dinner at a nice brewery across the street and rent snowboard gear at the shop in the hotel building.
We used the perfectly hot hot tub after a day on the slopes. The fitness Center was clean and new looking. Our room was very clean, the bathroom was great. The decor is a spartan modern. The staff was all very helpful. The wi-fi is Free and so is breakfast. Breakfast could be a little better, but it was free. I would highly recommend this place as an alternative to staying in one of the ski villages, for a big savings. You also don’t feel like you are in a worn out ski rental since everything was crisp and clean.More
