Restored Hotel Jerome Debuts in Aspen
Auberge Resorts has reopened the historic Hotel Jerome in Aspen, Colorado, following an extensive restoration of the property. In addition to its completely revamped guestrooms, the 120-year-old hotel has a new restaurant, a new lobby concept, and an Auberge Spa.
The hotel’s 93 guestrooms received upgrades such as multi-stepped moldings, enhanced lighting, and cashmere curtains. There are also burnished-leather bed frames and leather writing tables, as well as custom wall coverings and minibars that are designed as leather campaign chests in every room.
The hotel’s new restaurant, Prospect, is a 65-seat upscale American bistro, which offers diverse American dishes and sharing is encouraged. The menu also includes several classic Jerome dishes combined with contemporary techniques, as well as several of Executive Chef Rob Zack’s own family recipes.
The hotel also has a new living room concept for its lobby, which is designed as a space for après ski and serves small desserts and American tapas. As part of the restoration, J-Bar, the hotel’s lobby bar, has also had changes made to both its menu and design.
The property’s new Auberge Spa features a four-part menu that focuses on clearing the mind and renewing the spirit. In addition, the hotel has a partnership with the Aspen Club, a 77,000 square foot club with various fitness programs.
