Avon spas make the grade in latest Forbes rankings
The Vail-area spas garnered four stars from Forbes, formerly known as the Mobil Travel Guide, which is widely considered the gold standard for travel ratings. In the hotel category, the Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch in Avon also received four stars in the 2011 Forbes Travel Guide.
The Little Nell in Aspen is one of only two hotels in Colorado to receive a five-star rating in the 2011 guide. Montagna, the featured restaurant at The Little Nell, also received a five-star rating from Forbes.
Aside from The Little Nell, The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs is the only other hotel in the state to garner a five-star ranking. No surprise there. The Broadmoor has achieved the distinction for 51 straight years, which is the longest streak in the nation. Its restaurant, the Penrose Room, and The Spa at the Broadmoor also earned five stars from the Forbes' Travel Guide to complete the hotel's hattrick.
There were just 54 hotels in North America to receive five stars. The only other Colorado hotels to garner four stars are the St. Regis Aspen Resort and the historic Brown Palace in downtown Denver.
