2.5 star hotel
2.70 mi from Buttermilk Mountain Ski Area
Best Rooms: You'll find both city views and views of the woods from rooms facing W Hyman Ave. on floors 1 - 2.
Best Rooms: Floor 4 offers the best views, and are available in a variety of room categories. Even-numbered rooms offer partial views of Aspen Mountain and Wagner Park. Meanwhile, odd-numbered rooms between *19 - *41 (e.g. 423, 467) offer partial vies of Red Mountain.
Best Rooms: The hotel offers views of the town and mountains, the ski mountain or the pool. The view of the ski mountain is preferred, but you need to be on floor 4 so that it's not obstructed by other buildings.
Best Rooms: For great mountain views, book one of the 1-Bedroom/1-Bath Premier units -- specifically A203.
Best Rooms: Views are hard to come by because most of the mountain views are blocked by the surrounding trees. That said, rooms on floor 3 offer partial views or the alternative view is that of the pool. Ask for a room with one of these views when booking.
