Glass gas firepits centered in intimate seating areas, dangerously delicious margarita pitchers, and, of course, the pool and hot tub! The W Aspen WET deck is *the* spot for the Roaring Fork’s young adults. With 360° views that include the face of Aspen Mountain, this rooftop experience supersedes its predecessor, Sky Aspen, and is like none another public venue in the valley.
The W Aspen is an experience all its own; upon entering through doors opened by friendly staff, you encounter a foyer that is a well-curated mix of trendy elegance. Designed by Rowland and Broughton Architecture, the hotel has a funky-chic sophistication without feeling stuffy.
R+B sought to design a modern interpretation of a traditional chalet reminiscent of its skiing legacy.
The architecture of W Aspen expresses a sense of a gradual evolution of form and space, while remaining grounded in the chalet vernacular.…W Aspen is a great example of how the true spirit of a property can be maintained while elevating the experiences of the next generation of travelers and residents.” ~ Rowland and Broughton Architecture
