Do you want to know how to find a good lodging deal in Aspen for summer or winter? What's the first thing I should do when trying to find a good lodging deal in Aspen? You've got questions, we've got answers. See the below Q&A on how to put together that amazing, yet affordable, Aspen getaway.
Q: What's the first thing I should do when trying to find a good lodging deal in Aspen? What types of lodging should I look for?
A: "First, check out the current Frias lodging deals online. Or you can contact any of our knowledgeable sales agents at Frias Properties. We will find you the best lodging option for you. Call 800-542-7736 to speak with a sales agent. For lodging, condominiums are great for longer stays as they give you more space plus a kitchen. The Independence Square is great for a couple or small family with the convenient downtown location."
Q: What kinds of amenities can I expect?
A: "For starters, all Frias Properties guests receive daily housekeeping and complimentary health club passes. Condominium guests receive complimentary transportation from Aspen airport. (Excluses Independence Square.) Independence Square guests receive complimentary breakfast in the morning and a rooftop hot tub with panoramic views of Aspen."
Q: I'm looking for a lodging deal. What's a great summer value?
A: "Look at coming during times that aren't as busy. The first week in June or week before Labor Day are always great weeks to travel with special rates."
Q: What lodging deals do you recommend for winter?
A: "It's best to call our reservations department for the best available special at your time of the year."
Q: Where's a good location if I want to be close to downtown?
A: "All of our condominiums are located downtown except for the Ritz-Carlton, which is ski-in, ski-out at Aspen Highlands, within walking distance to all shops and restaurants."
Q: Skiing is my thing. I would like to be close to Aspen Mountain.
A: "The Independence Square hotel as well as many of our condominiums are only a short walk to the gondola. The Silverglo provides on demand shuttle service that will drop you off right at the gondola."
Q: What if there's a group of us?
A: "Frias Properties of Aspen offers more than 200 condominiums in downtown Aspen, perfect for large groups. With accommodations ranging from 1 to 5 bedrooms, we can easily lodge your group one block from the Silver Queen Gondola or right on the stunning Roaring Fork River. Simply, contact our Group Sales Manager directly at 970-429-2453."
Q: Can we all chip in and get one big house?
A: "Yes, we have a number of homes ranging in size from 3 to 6 bedrooms."
Q: Can I save money by not renting a car? How do I get around then?
A: "A car is not necessary in Aspen. With our condominium rentals you will receive Aspen airport transportation and once you are in town you are walking distance to all of the restaurants. You can take the free public transportation to the other ski mountains."
