Adventure Awaits When Staying at Aspen Square Hotel
The Aspen Square Hotel promises to deliver thrills both in town and on the slopes. Famous slopes bring groups to Aspen Square but it’s the downtown delights will win them over.
Not surprisingly, most visitors who make the journey to Aspen, Colorado are there for the skiing. With a variety of breathtaking summits, near-perfect snow and a seemingly endless season, Aspen is the stuff that ski dreams are made of. However, this city has much more to offer than its world-renowned slopes, and the Aspen Square Hotel is proof to that. Located snuggly between the base of Aspen Mountain and the city that gives it its name, Aspen Square offers skiers an inviting mixture of mountain views and downtown delights, providing them with unusually easy access to both. While skiing might be the main reason for your visit, Aspen Square is excited to show your group just how much there is to this sparkling city aside from the snowy mountainsides that have made it famous.
