December 1, 2010 1:47 PM


Colorado isn’t Hollywood, but it is a place where celebrities live and vacation – especially in some of the state’s top resort towns. Here, it’s not about glamour and flash, but rather real people (who just happen to be famous) enjoying the Rocky Mountain splendor just like the rest of us. Don’t be surprised if you see Tom Cruise swishing down the ski slopes or Jessica Biel stopping in for a bite to eat at her favorite local restaurant. Here are our picks for the best celebrity hangouts in Colorado.

Hotel Jerome

330 East Main Street
Aspen, CO 81611

Hotel Jerome in Aspen oozes with luxury and character, so it’s no wonder that this historic hotel draws celebrities like Gerard Butler, Josh Hartnett, Seal and Heidi Klum. When it was built in 1889, Hotel Jerome was considered a modern marvel. But even today, this elegant property retains its sophisticated ways. Hollywood stars relax in some 94 richly appointed guest rooms, with atmosphere and charm older than a John Wayne movie. While staying in a lavish room previously occupied by Jessica Biel, you can dine at one of the hotel’s three award-winning restaurants or head down to Jerome’s J-Bar for a nightcap. Who knows who you might meet? Hours: Open 24 hours daily.

This high-end property has an enviable location right at the base of Aspen Mountain, so even if you don’t see any big names, you’ll still enjoy a good time on the slopes. Hours: Open 24 hours daily.
