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.

Lovely place, but the prices start at $540 a day with a three day minimum. Would be nice to have a drink there, though.
OUCH…..I didn’t look at the prices, I’m familar with how expensive Aspen is…a drink will be on my to do list now,
Absolutely your style. Gorgeous hotel.
Isn’t it though……Gunna try and have a drink there next time I’m in Aspen…
Wow, I thought my goodness this is beautiful, but then I checked out the room rates, and WOW wayt to rich for my blood, but so darn pretty!!
O M G O S H !
Don’t you just love a wonderful hotel like this?
It kind of reminds me of the Iron Horse Hotel in Milwaukee, where we splurged + stayed with our dogs once.
Dogs = kids for older couples, apparently!
But I digress.
TY for sharing; I now have wanderlust!
