Tapestry Collection by Hilton Hotel Opens in Basalt

The Hoffman Hotel offers easy access to skiing and other outdoor activities

A new waterfront hotel in the small town of Basalt, Colorado, about 20 miles northwest of Aspen, opened in March to welcome outdoor enthusiasts, visitors, and conferencegoers. The Hoffman Hotel Basalt Aspen, Tapestry Collection by Hilton is a 122-room hotel managed by Five Senses Hospitality Management.

Officials at the hotel “look forward to providing guests with an elevated contemporary setting to experience the area’s many outdoor pursuits including skiing, hiking, biking, fishing, golf, and other water activities,” says General Manager Doug Hayes in a prepared statement.

The modern-yet-rustic design of the lodging reflects the natural beauty of the surrounding Rocky Mountains, and the hotel has plenty of amenities—the property includes the Hoffman House restaurant and bar, a fitness center with Peloton equipment, an outdoor area with hot tub and Jacuzzi, and 1,500 square feet of meeting and event space. The new hotel is also pet-friendly.

The inviting lobby and adjacent bar are intended to be the focal point of the new space. “I really envision the bar being fairly active and some of that bar and restaurant business spilling out into the lobby. [The idea is] that when you walk in, you really feel the energy of both people having a good time and music as a big part of the brand as well,” Jeff Blackman, president of Bedford Lodging (the developer that constructed the hotel) and founder of Five Senses Hospitality Management, tells the Aspen Daily News.

The hotel’s lakefront setting is in an area called The Tree Farm, a landscaped 43-acre, mixed-use, sustainable community featuring Kodiak Ski Lake that also includes dining, public trails, and water sports. The community is 30 minutes from skiing facilities at Snowmass Ski Area and near fly fishing on the Fryingpan and Roaring Fork Rivers, mountain biking on the Crown Trails, hiking in the Capitol Peak wilderness, and other recreational options in the Rocky Mountains.
