Indagare Loves

  • Huge suites for families
  • Park-like setting perfect in summer months
  • Celeb spotting during Aspen Institute festivals


The home of the Aspen Institute, this 98 all-suite resort and conference center has long been a favorite place to stay, particularly in the summer months, because of its peaceful location in the West End. Although completely renovated in 2009, the Meadows retains its original multicolor, flat-roofed look, created in 1950 by renowned Bauhaus architect Herbert Bayer. Rooms still feel fresh, with modern and spare décor (although a lack of air conditioners units means they can get hot. The hotel is adding ACs to every room by end of summer 2021). The resort has tennis courts, a large fitness center and, roaming the grounds, a roster of institute attendees ranging from foreign dignitaries to newspaper magnates. Rooms with the best views are in the 100- and 200-numbered buildings. The resort also offers a free shuttle to and from town and the slopes.

Who Should Stay

Families, Aspen Institute attendees, value hunters.
