Creature Comforts in Colorado

Boutique hotelier Kimpton Group moved into Aspen and made the mountain town its own by overhauling the dated Aspen Club Lodge. This summer, it debuts anew as the Sky Hotel, a cozy 90-roomer that bridges rustic mountain looks and modern appeal. Relax in pine-furnished rooms with white quilted headboards and faux-fur throws. Après hiking, head straight for 39 Degrees, the lobby lounge adjoining the pool deck, where fire pits chase the alpine chill. From $129. (800) 882-2582,
