Paris Hilton and boyfriend Doug Reinhardt are spending the snowy holidays in the celebrity getaway hotspot, Aspen, Colorado–where the stars always seem to shine brighter. Paris is no stranger to the glamorous mountain town. She spent last year in Aspen with her former BFF Brittany Flickinger, sister Nicky Hilton and her boyfriend David Katzenberg. So far, the couple has been pretty hush hush on Twitter about where they’re hanging out. Here’s a taste of what they might be up to.
Where are they staying?
The Little Nell Hotel is a popular, vibrant and fashionable celebrity spot. Just hang out in the lobby and you’re bound to see a famous face, like Oprah’s. If the Nell is all booked, I’m guessing the couple is keeping it elegant and sophisticated at the Hotel Jerome in downtown Aspen where Johnny Depp and Donal Trump like to hang. This boutique hotel offers authentic mountain charm–boasting the history of Aspen in all the finishing touches. If the other two luxury accommodations don’t meet the Paris standard, then perhaps St. Regis can offer everything the couple needs for their getaway. Demi Moore and Dean Cain have made this their place to be in Aspen many times. The resort is spread across 4 mountains, providing over 4,000 acres of opulent perfection. There’s even an exceptional spa which I’m sure Paris would appreciate. Are all these places too ‘stuffy’ for Paris though? Would she rather stay somewhere a lot younger and hipper? What about Sky Hotel, where the decor is funky, the outdoor pools are heated and the hot tub is always bubbling.
What’s for dinner?
Celebs like Hilary Swank love eating at Sneaky’s Tavern in Snowmass Village. It’s a great place for lunch that serves simple but tasty dishes like duck pot pie. If sushi is Paris’ thing then how about the place where Elle Macpherson and Mariah Carey love to go, Nobu’s Matsuhisa. Maybe Miss Hilton is looking to cure her sweet tooth–a stop at The Sweet Life for cupcakes and ice cream does a body good. Or not. But cupcakes make everything better! Paris and Nicky have been known to frequent Ajax Tavern for some delicious organic delights. It’s a sure bet the couple has been there at least once so far during their vacation. If all else fails in life, there’s always coffee. If Paris needs a pick-me-up I’m sure she’s grabbing a cup of Joe at any one of the cute cafes downtown.
Take Me Out
Only the biggest players can hang at the Caribou Club–where memberships cost in the thousands and the wine list is to die for. Dance dive The Mustang, formerly known as Club Chelsea, boasts a late night crowd in the wee hours and an all-day, all-night menu complete with cigar bar and DJs galore. At The Regal Watering Hole has a unique and elegant vibe, with a leather-clad lounge, classic cocktails and VIP bottle-service. Aspen is filled with private clubs so perhaps Paris has her own secret hideout.
What’s better than one mountain? How about four! People experienced on skis can access Ajax from the town’s gondolas. If you take a small ride out of town, you can hit the Aspen Highlands (experienced level), Buttermilk (beginners) and Snowmass (great family slope). There’s even a valet service which picks up your skis at the end of the day and brings them to your desired slope the next morning. Doug has been Tweeting non stop about skiing so he’s probably taking a chance on one of the big boy slopes. But what about Paris, hmmm…
Buy Me Things
We know from Paris’ previous trips to Aspen that she loves to hit the town and shop. The main streets in downtown Aspen are filled with designer shops including Prada, Gucci, Dior and Ralph Lauren. There are also lots of great ski shops to pick up stylish ski wear and sexy cashmere to stay warm by a fire.
