—Aspen’s only five-star, five-diamond hotel — the Sundeck takes full advantage of its mountaintop location in summertime with patio dining and extraordinary views over the Elk Mountains. Enjoy healthy, made-to-order stir-fry dishes from the wok station, fresh and inventive soups, pizzas, unique salads and delicious sandwiches. It’s all served in the Sundeck’s bright and warm setting, defined by 30-foot ceilings and a huge rock fireplace. Listen to live bluegrass on Sundays or simply go for a short hike atop the mountain. Clearly marked trails lead to forest, meadows and more scenic views.
The Sundeck is also a popular special events venue in summer.
