You know you're staying someplace special when the granite-slabbed kitchen is equipped with martini glasses, Bordeaux and Chardonnay glasses, a Viking wine refrigerator, and a cappuccino maker. And the bathroom? A tub for two, plus a glassed-in rain shower with jets and a steam spigot. At the Hyatt Grand Aspen, they do everything right. When compared to Aspen's other premier properties—Little Nell, St. Regis and Hotel Jerome—the Hyatt stands out for its new, impeccable feel, classic decor and condo units that are, well, just like home—only much, much nicer. Each condo has a gas fireplace, a private balcony overlooking Ajax Mountain or the picture-perfect ice-skating rink, plasma TVs, and a concierge service that will do everything short of calling your mother. Which leaves you with more time to get through all that barware.

From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
The Hyatt Grand Aspen is big news in a town notorious for its strict control of development, especially since it's a two-minute walk from the Aspen Mountain gondola. The fortresslike brick facade, with turrets and wrought iron railings bulging from balconies, is a nod to Aspen's Victorian architectural heritage. Interiors are modern mountain comfortable, the kind of place to kick off your boots and relax. The 52 units—ranging from spacious studios to four-bedrooms—have elegant rustic touches such as wide-plank floors, sandstone walls, and stone gas fireplaces. Sink into a squishy leather couch at the Wine Spot, a newly popular après-ski hangout. Its small sandwich menu is the extent of the on-site dining, and although there's no room service, concierges will stock guest rooms' state-of-the-art kitchens. —2006 Hot List
