A friend was telling us recently that he we staying at the Hotel Jerome on his next trip to Aspen…..and that we would absolutely LOVE it.
Never heard of it…so I Googled.
Stunning…………..(I do love a vintage postcard)
Then I found some images that were slightly more recent.
Last year the 120 year old landmark, originally built by the CEO of Macy’s, underwent a massive restoration removing all the dusty Victorian decor that made it look dated. (I’m not even going to show “before” pictures…they are pretty sad)
Let’s just focus on what she looks like now.
Is that a 39 star flag?
The walls of the elevators are lined in vintage belt panels.
Modern looking rooms, with just a touch of “Colorado” with the native photographs, kiva ladder, Navajo blanket, and bass-wood deer head.
The bar is still the original one from the “gold rush” days. How about those pendants made from antique liquor bottles?
Creamy ballroom with white antler chandeliers and round vintage mirror sconces.
So remember, the next time that you’re in Aspen Colorado……
…we have a suggestion on where to stay.
