HOTEL JEROME, AUBERGE RESORTS COLLECTION
History & Story
Completed in 1889, the building was financed by Jerome B. Wheeler, one of Aspen’s most notable entrepreneuers, during the town’s early period of development of the silver mining days. It had the only elevator and public bathroom in town and was one of a few buildings west of the Mississippi River to have full electric lighting.
In 2012, the hotel underwent a multi-million dollar renovation. Under the direction of designer Todd- Avery Lenahan, the new look reflects the hotel’s storied history with artifacts and decor from every decade since the hotel opened. Examples include the original tile work in the lobby and Chippendale Bar in the J Bar, while guest rooms were upgraded with cashmere curtains and burnished leather headboards.

The summer of 2018 revealed the latest updates to the hotel including a brand new Courtyard, swimming pool, underground speakeasy bar, Bad Harriet, and 2 three bedroom Residential Style Suites

Hotel Jerome’s history parallels the town of Aspen. During the height of Colorado’s silver boom, the Hotel Jerome was born of the vision of Jerome B. Wheeler who built the Jerome in 1889 to emulate the great European hotels of the time. Built in the heart of downtown Aspen, the Hotel Jerome was designed to be a paragon of hospitality for its day.
The hotel pioneered new levels of innovation and luxury when it opened in 1889 at the height of Aspen’s boomtown silver-mining era. For decades, the Jerome had the only bathroom in town that was open to the public. It had the only elevator in town and was one of the first buildings west of the Mississippi to have full electric lighting.
During the 1950’s, the hotel became a popular watering hole for writers, avant-garde artists and screen stars, including Gary Cooper, Lana Turner, Hedy LaMarr and John “Duke” Wayne. With the emergence of the Aspen Institute, it was not unusual to find intellectuals, artists and notable industrialists gathered around the swimming pool listening to lectures by Mortimer Adler.
