Aspen invariably conjures up thoughts of $500-and-up hotel rooms, and there are plenty of those. But for a simple but comfy contemporary room in a convenient Main Street location, try the Hotel Aspen, which offers super-snuggly down comforters and other modern touches like iPod docks and Wi-Fi. It’s close to Aspen Mountain’s Silver Queen gondola and right on the free shuttle line for Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk, and Snowmass. In any other city, it would be considered luxury, with breakfast and après-ski hors d’oeuvres.
