Aspen Street Lodge Creates Luxe Leisure Bubble – Travel Weekly
The Aspen Street Lodge opened last summer 2021 as a unique offering in the famed mountain town: a buyout-only, 26-guest home that offers many of the services of a luxury hotel.
A true product of the pandemic when it opened, it seized on the Covid-related demand for places that could be closed for individual groups, launching with a buyout-only model. It was so successful, its owners decided to keep it that way.
It took five years for the Aspen Street Lodge to be designed and built, on the site where the Hotel Lenado stood for more than 30 years. I toured the lodge in March and wished I was an actual guest.
Located in downtown Aspen, steps from Restaurant Row, the Lodge offers a surprising amount of space. With three levels, nine bedrooms plus a two-bedroom penthouse apartment, there seemed to be endless fun- and amenity-filled areas for groups of friends, families or co-workers.
Guests can take in views of the Aspen Mountain slopes from a heated pool and hot tub on the roof deck, which also has a full outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven.
There are a variety of outdoor areas for dining and gathering or to just curl up and read a book. I can imagine kids and the young-at-heart loving the spacious game room, with pingpong, foosball, shuffleboard and retro arcade games.
