Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

Condo hotel with a homey vibe

Lobby
Lobby

From the lobby's cozy seating area to the wood-burning fireplaces featured in every unit, this condo hotel exudes a homey vibe.

The lobby is warm and welcoming, with comfy loveseats arranged around a stone fireplace. It is furnished with classic ski lodge decor, which includes an antler chandelier and a sleigh coffee table. The lobby's brick accents, glossy black piano, and patterned area rug add to the charming ambience.

The condo units also include homey touches, such as full kitchens, private balconies, and wood-burning fireplaces. Each unit is decorated differently, due to the influences of the individual owners. Some condos have been recently refurbished, while others could use updates.

Outside, a gorgeous courtyard houses a pool, two Jacuzzis, and barbecue grill. This expansive space is dotted with elegant fountains, bright flowers, towering trees, and modern patio furniture. The hotel also features underground parking and a small fitness center.

 Location

In a prime downtown location, near ski lifts

The hotel is right in the middle of downtown Aspen, just a two-minute walk from the main downtown ski lift. Restaurants, bars, and entertainment spots are also within walking distance, and City Market Grocery is across the street. The gorgeous and frequently photographed Maroon Bells Scenic Wilderness Area is a 25-minute drive from the hotel, and other attractions are an even shorter drive away.

As for getting to Aspen, most travelers fly into Aspen Airport directly and forgo the four-hour drive from Denver, but flights are often delayed due to winter weather.

  • 11-minute drive to Aspen Airport
  • 4-hour drive to Denver International Airport
  • 1-minute walk to City Market Grocery for food and supplies
  • 2-minute walk to the closest ski lift in downtown Aspen
  • 6-minute walk to the closest microbrewery, Aspen Brewing Company
  • 20-minute drive to Snowmass Village
  • 25-minute drive to Maroon Bells Scenic Wilderness Area

 Rooms

Decor varies, but all units feature fully equipped kitchens, balconies, and wood-burning fireplaces

Silver Studio Room
Silver Studio Room

All condos -- from studios to four-bedroom units -- have fully equipped kitchens and wood-burning fireplaces with free wood. They also include balconies with outdoor seating, and some have barbecue grills.

Since all of the units are individually owned, the decor varies. Some feature traditional ski lodge decor, such as wood and leather furniture, large wood armoires, and vintage ski prints. Others look more modern, with understated, contemporary furnishings and high-tech amenities such as iPod docks.

Most of the bathrooms have granite counters and tile or stone showers. All have Neutrogena toiletries.
