Holiday Magic at the St. Regis

Photography by Palak Patel

Until I visited Aspen, I thought I hated winter. I pretty much prefer to hibernate if it’s not 70 degrees outside, but this snowy little town had so much charm and beauty that it changed my mind. Trees covered in pillowy soft snow, steaming hot chocolate (extra marshmallows of course), and holiday cheer everywhere would just about change anyone’s mind.

On a friend’s recommendation, I booked our stay at The St. Regis for three nights and in no time this place started to feel like home. Upon arrival, the gentleman helping us with our bags dropped my scarf and although I declined- he insisted I let him launder it. Few short hours later, the scarf was delivered to my room, clean like new! Service!

The St. Regis Aspen has the charm of a cabin in the woods yet still feels exclusive and luxurious. I spent the first 30 minutes just photographing our room because I was amazed at the level of detail. I’ve stayed in some pretty nice hotels, but the thought that went into curating this room was quite apparent. The door handles, trim work, different textures- they were all picture perfect. It gave me some #hardwaregoals for my own home.

Foreal though, check out this bathroom !! I L-O-V-E me some marble, but the fact that the doors not only open up to the bedroom but a view of the courtyard was a total #winning in my eyes.

Holiday Spirit!

The annual tree lighting, which they graciously open to the entire Aspen community, attracts locals and tourists alike. Pictures with santa, hot popcorn, a mouth watering display of sweets, and melodious christmas carols thanks to a group of the most adorable young women, made the night magical.
