Aspen’s Storied History Lives at Hotel Jerome

An Aspen landmark since 1889, Hotel Jerome houses as much history as it does contemporary luxury. Located at the base of the Aspen Mountains and steps from the heart of town, this cozy boutique is perfectly situated for taking in all Aspen has to offer. What was once a quiet hideaway for silver miners, Hotel Jerome soon transformed into a luxury retreat for artists and screen stars of the 40’s to hippies and musicians of the 70’s and the founding site of many things like the Aspen Skiing Company and the Aspen Music Festival and School. After receiving a multimillion dollar renovation in 2012 and pool-, patio- and garden-upgrades in 2017, this Auburge Resort maintains its reputation as a one-of-a-kind gem in the Rocky Mountains.


With a rugged-mountain-meets-modern-elegance vibe, Hotel Jerome’s accommodation choices include deluxe rooms, junior suites and luxury suites all which feature custom furnishings, modern amenities and authentic details. The spa, like the guest rooms, also infuse the spirit of Aspen in its decor and treatments. Guests can enjoy the spa program that highlights the natural healing of the Roaring Fork Valley through local minerals and healing agents used in many of the treatments offered. Popular treatments include the 80-minute Sanctuary of the Mountains Body Treatment which includes a clay exfoliation and a steamy healing balm of arnica, white willow and calendula. Even the bath products infuse the smell of mountain air with scents like citrus, sage, lavender, Douglas fir, black spruce and more.

To truly take advantage of the resort’s historic heart, guests should venture down to J-Bar, the resort’s original bar and the town’s iconic hot spot, once favored by the late Hunter S. Thompson along with cowboys, socialites and skiiers alike. J-Bar features vintage-inspired cocktails and light fare, all in a historically glam setting.
