Aspen conjures images of snow-capped mountains, skiing, and aspen trees. Once a mining camp during the Colorado Silver Boom of the late 19th century, this city is now a premium ski resort and a high-end tourist destination which famous personalities such as John Denver, Antonio Banderas, and Kurt Russell once considered home. Although Aspen is the winter playground of the rich and famous, it does have a number of low-cost hotels available for budget travellers.
Snowmass Inn Hotel in Snowmass Village is well-known for its wonderful location and low prices. It has 39 rooms with cable television, where children aged 12 and under can stay for free. Just a few steps away from the Snowmass Ski Area and Village Mall, it’s an ideal location for winter adventures. Guests can warm up in the outdoor heated swimming pool. Other amenities include free continental breakfast, airport transfers, and daily housekeeping.
At the foot of Aspen Mountain stands Mountain Chalet, a Swiss-style budget accommodation originally built in 1954. With low rates and excellent facilities comparable to premium hotels, this chalet offers great value. Talk business in the huge conference room, lounge around in the TV room, or spend some time online in the T-1 Internet lobby. An outdoor heated pool, hot tub, sauna, and steam room provide guests with warm comfort, while the game room guarantees the ultimate in entertainment. Hot, family-style breakfasts are served during winter, and full continental breakfasts are offered during spring, summer, and fall. Underground parking is also available in the hotel.
Other Aspen hotels with affordable rates are Sleep Inn Denver Tech Center in Greenwood Village, St. Moritz Lodge and Condominium Hotel on W Hyman Avenue, and Hotel Lenado on Aspen Street.
