Inside Aspen Street Lodge, the mountain town’s newest luxury hotel



The contemporary and cool Aspen Street Lodge offers residential comfort with a sophisticated hotel vibe.


Suited to its location, the first boutique hotel to open in Aspen in over 25 years is a luxurious outpost for business or leisure. The new Aspen Street Lodge is designed in a modified residential style, with nine lodge rooms and a lavish penthouse apartment, as well as a chic game room and bar, yoga room, theater room and entertainment terrace on the roof with stunning mountain views.

Located opposite Paepcke Park and next to Frances Whitaker Park, the hotel is within walking distance of Aspen’s many shops and restaurants. But staying at home is also a good option, as guests can enjoy meals prepared by the resident chef at Aspen Street Lodge. The lodge also offers an on-site mountain guide for ski lessons or cycling adventures. In fact, local experts are on hand to help with most guest requests, from planning parties and weddings, to private painting lessons, white water rafting and the summit of a fourteen. .

“Our superb location and intimate setting offer the best of a luxury hotel combined with the comfort and amenities of a residence,” said General Manager Brittany Shami. “A team of experienced and local staff provide a personalized, personalized service that is personalized for each group, whether it is here for a personalized experiences, celebration, family reunion, board retreat or corporate meeting. ‘business.”

The lodge was designed by Aspen-based architecture firm Forum Phi and built by Madigan + Company of Aspen. “The structural scale embraces brickwork to complement Aspen’s historic character, while using gable roofs to honor residential properties,” says project architect Lori Gerety, who worked with senior manager Ryan Walterscheid. “The mix of the lighter stone and darker siding mimics the rugged textures of the wilderness and the bark of aspen trees.”

But the structure is more than just a sight to behold, it is also smart and durable. “Through careful construction sequencing, geothermal loops use the entire building footprint to generate a 360,000 BTU per hour ground source heat pump system,” says Gerety. “Each roof area available for sun exposure is covered with a photovoltaic panel, resulting in a 20 kW photovoltaic system.” Inside, the lodge’s smart home features include remote systems for temperature, blinds, lighting, and television.

The flexible layout of the lodge allows spaces to be opened or locked according to the needs of each group of guests. Four lodge rooms, three premium lodge rooms (with fireplace and tub), and two rooms with bunk beds vary in size from 309 to 640 square feet. The 3,254 square foot penthouse apartment features two bedrooms, an office, a kitchen, a bar, a living room, a dining room and two terraces.

Dallas-based interior designer Debra Owens has laid out the spaces in a style she describes as “sophisticated, fun, intimate and pleasant, with beautiful backgrounds to complement the stunning views.” Owens gave each room its own unique personality, juxtaposing bold, hand-painted wall coverings by Porter Teleo with Venetian plaster walls; charred western red cedar with Douglas fir; and stone, blackened steel, sheepskin and leather. Sculptural lighting pieces from Apparatus, Roll & Hill, and Rich Brilliant Willing add drama, while shades of blue, green, rust, and yellow are reminiscent of mountain scenery.

“With the walls of large windows and glass doors leading to wraparound balconies, the views of Aspen take center stage,” says Owens. “Sheepskin rugs, nubby fabrics, marbles, wood, steel and the modern and sophisticated palette are supporting characters. “

Offering breathtaking views of Aspen Mountain and Shadow Mountain, the lodge’s 1,386 square foot rooftop terrace can accommodate up to 49 people and keep them entertained with a heated pool, hot tub and full outdoor kitchen equipped with High-end Kalamazoo appliances including a grill, smoker and pizza oven.
