The St. Regis Aspen Resort Hotel Review: Small groups of well-dressed guests treat the casually elegant lobby of this hotel as if it's their living room. Perhaps it's the comfy collection of comfortable, overstuffed leather chairs, suede pillows and wool throws. Celebrity chefs stay here during the Food & Wine Classic, and world-famous musicians during the Aspen Music Festival. In winter, skiers enjoy the proximity to Aspen Mountain and the services of a ski butler. All 179 luxe guestrooms and suites (redecorated in 2004) have a relaxed Western lodge look while boasting amenities such as flat-screen TVs, DVD and CD players, dual phone lines and high-speed or wireless Internet connections. Guests who want extra privacy and 24-hour personal concierge service stay on the Club Floor (accessible by a key-activated elevator), where complimentary food and beverages are served throughout the day and evening. The hotel culinary team is led by executive chef David Viviano who oversees all house dining, including signature Italian restaurant, Trecento Quindici Decano. The 15,000-square-foot Remède Spa features fifteen treatment rooms, vapor caves and rituals such as the Hematite and Basalt Stone Massage.
