St. Regis Aspen
The St. Regis Aspen is easily the NICEST hotel I have ever stayed in.
The Chef and I were lucky enough to experience The St. Regis as part of his Chef's Club contract and last month I found myself indulging in all of her luxurious amenities.
The St. Regis is located at the base of Aspen Mountain and is walking distance to anything and everything in this glamorous snowy town.
The Chef spent most of his time in the kitchen so I was free to explore the St. Regis at my leisure. After a full day of snowboarding at Buttermilk Mountain I headed straight to the glorious Remède Spa. I steamed my bumps and bruises away and melted in the bubbling grotto. After I couldn't get any more relaxed I headed to the oxygen spa. Never having 'done' oxygen I was immediately impressed and obsessed.
By the end of my spa session my body was a bowl of jello.
Never having been as relaxed as I was when I left the spa, I slowly headed back to our gorgeous room. The St. Regis room that the Chef and I were lucky enough to stay in was quite stunning. With a corner of Aspen Mountain waking us up each morning we sure didn't have a lot to complain about. The bed was one of those beds you never want to get out of and when we didn't have to get up we stayed in.
One of the best things about The St. Regis Aspen is the Chef's Club restaurant.
The Chef's Club features different Food & Wine Magazine Best New Chefs. The menus change seasonally as do the chefs. Because I happen to be married to one of the chefs I was lucky enough to dine at the Chef's Club numerous times. The restaurant is so gorgeous and the food's not half bad either. There is a kitchen table that was perfect for the solo diner like myself. The staff is amazing and absolutely know what they are doing. The execution of the dishes was phenomenal and the overall atmosphere of the Chef's Club was comfortable yet luxurious without being white table cloth stuffy. I loved it and think The St. Regis has an absolutely beautiful dining experience on their hands.
The St. Regis Aspen has it all.
I almost think it might be the perfect hotel. On the last day as the Chef and I were walking back to our rooms a gaggle of kids ran past us in their pajama's. They had met in ski school and quickly became friends when they realized they were staying at the same hotel. As we walked towards our room, I couldn't help but imagine my kids running around with their ski buddies, sneaking hot chocolate in the lobby, and promising to write each other when their vacation ended. We most definitely will be back. And next time, we'll be bringing the minis.
