What our guest say about us

With two decades of loyal and distinguished guests that span from entertainers and athletes to artists and politicians, somehow the hotel still maintains a subtle mystique as the city’s hidden gem.

This place is perfect, old world charm and sophisticated elegance.

I recently spent three days at The Residence Hotel in Aspen Colorado. Terry Butler, who could be described as a Grand Dame of Aspen, has created a haven that is both opulent elegance and homely charm. Without a doubt one of the truly excellent hotel experiences I have ever had. Read more

Great location in the middle of Aspen’s “fun” district!

The Residence Hotel is located in the absolute best spot in Aspen, sandwiched between the shopping and pubs & restaurants. Each of the rooms is unique with a special theme, with ours being French.

My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary and were delighted! Terry and her staff were warm and helpful from our first contact throughout the trip. The hotel is a true hidden gem. The French Studio was a perfect slice of Paris, where we were married. The lobby is plush, bright, inviting, “richly appointed” Read more

The beautiful thing about this hotel is the fact that you are in the best area of town. A block away from the ski lifts and all the best shopping and restaurants are either around the corner of the hotel or a couple blocks away. On the actual hotel it’s spotless and the it’s one… Read more

An exceptional experience in every way possible. Don’t be mistaken by the fact that Yelp states that the hotel is closed, this boutique sanctuary is worth calling to see if there is availability. The Residence is truly special – a unique combination of comfort, luxury, culture and convenience. I was absolutely blown away by my… Read more
