Looking for a hotel that's close to Maroon Bells. Plan on hiking the Four Loop Pass and would like to get an early start. Can you recommend a hotel with a short drive. Thanks

Pretty much any of the hotels in Aspen or Snowmass are a short drive from Maroon Bells. If you arrive before 8:00am you can drive up to the parking lot. Otherwise, you will have to take the shuttle bus. If you can provide more information on the type of accomodations you are looking for, I'm sure others can make more specific recommendations.

The closest is the Ritz Carlton at the Highlands -9 miles to the upper drop off point. Next would be The Inn at Aspen - decent place and waaaay cheaper. No guarantee you can drive up if you arrive at 7:55. All depends on how full upper lots are. Besides you should start before sunrise to not only avoid the early crowds but see the sunrise hit the Bells.

Don't get caught without the bear canister! Nice fine and you'll get kicked out. Enjoy the Loop. Great fun.
