By celebrity dogs, Happy, Lady & Lucy, of the King’s Life children’s book series about dog-friendly places. They sniff out the best of adventures at luxury hotels for kids and pets.
Aspen, CO – We had the pleasure of stopping into The St. Regis Aspen this summer whilst we sniffed out adventure in this glorious town. We saw first hand – or rather, first paw – what a dog and kid-friendly place the St. Regis is. A year ago, the St. Regis brand coined ‘Family Traditions’ to embody their pursuit of fun for families: Pursue your passions and celebrate the art of play with enriching family adventures that you will treasure for a lifetime. Each St. Regis hotel hand-selects special experiences just for their guests.
The week of Thanksgiving, The St. Regis Aspen unveiled a gingerbread replica of the hotel. This stunning piece, made with 100 lbs. of gingerbread dough and 50 lbs. of flour over the course of 250 hours, is on display in the lobby during the festive season. But, that’s not all! You can roll up your sleeves and learn The Art of Gingerbread House Design under the supervision of their St. Regis Pastry Chef in the Aspen Room.
