Aspen Meadows, Aspen, CO
Designed by Bauhaus alumnus Herbert Bayer in 1949, Aspen Meadows has spacious, minimalist rooms with huge windows—all the better for taking in views of 42 mountainside acres of golden aspen trees. The hotel is on the Roaring Fork River in Aspen’s historic West End. And you may even feel smarter by association here since it’s the headquarters of the prestigious Aspen Institute. Doubles from $144.
Room to Book: Upgrade to a spacious one-bedroom suite with a private balcony or terrace.
Get Outdoors: It’s an easy hike around Maroon Lake, at the foot of the Maroon Bells, arguably the most photographed mountain peaks in America.
