Aspen's singular ski-in/ski-out property is also its most glamorous address. It doesn't hurt that almost every single guest is swathed in Loro Piana cashmere and Prada skiwear, many carrying designer dogs to match their duds (the in-room pet dining menu and dog beds make it perfect for pet-porting travelers). The 92 spacious rooms, recently touched up by designer Holly Hunt, blend classic Aspen touches with a residential warmth. Rooms feature gas fireplaces, plasma TVs, and marble bathrooms. As cozy-chic as the rooms are, you may prefer being seen at the new bar, Element 47, sipping a Silver Lining (Colorado vodka and blood orange puree topped with an edible silver Aspen leaf) while weighing the virtues of hedge funds.
