Hyatt Grand Aspen is centrally located around the corner from the Aspen Mountain Gondola and across the street from Ruby Park. The small park space holds an ice rink and the Ruby Park bus transit center for Aspen. In winter busses offer free rides around Aspen and to the ski lifts of surrounding slopes. Roaring Forks Transportation Authority provides regional service for Aspen and regional transportation – RFTA bus service links.
The feature my wife would love about the Hyatt Grand Aspen Residences is the outdoor Silver Circle ice skating rink across the street. Here is a 360 panoramic photo of the ice skating rink showing the Hyatt Grand Aspen residences in the background during the first portion of the moving photo.
I looked over the http://www.hyattaspen.com/ website and I am surpised by the lack of photos. The video seems to be the best link on the website and there are some floor plans to look over. This website needs a makeover as bad as Loyalty Traveler, but at least I am not trying to sell million dollar timeshares or actually in the “$60s” for entry level buy-in.
Hyatt Grand Aspen had a morning breakfast set-up at The Grape Bar. EatAspen.com highlights the Grape Bar wine specials. The Grape Bar also offered Happy Hour specials.
The Hyatt Grand Aspen is sometimes available for points using Hyatt Vacation Club Awards. These awards are a great value since a three bedroom condo can accomodate a family at 30,000 points per night compared to 22,000 points per night for one room at a Gold Passport category 6 hotel award at the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort near Vail or the $500 to $1,000 per night for The Little Nell or St. Regis Aspen properties which are on either side of the Hyatt Grand Aspen Residence Club.
