The Hotel Jerome, referred to as the crown jewel of Aspen, recently underwent a complete renovation to restore this 1889 Luxury Silver Boom Era hotel to its prior glory.  It is conveniently located in the heart of Aspen and features the legendary J-Bar, frequented by locals and celebrities alike.

The Jerome was popularized in the writings of Hunter S. Thompson, a transplant to Aspen, was known to stop at the J-Bar when picking up his mail to eat, drink and watch TV as it had the best reception in the area (prior to cable becoming widespread).  Following his death, his memorial service was held in the Hotel’s ballroom.  Travel writers have praised both the Jerome’s luxury accommodations and it’s helpful and friendly staff.  The hotel offers transportation to and from the Aspen airport.

It’s all in the eyes

Studies in cognitive neuroscience have shown that fear, surprise, happiness and other emotions trigger the amygdala in the brain based on the the amount of white in the eyes. While the orbitofrontal cortex and other parts of the brain decode complex facial expressions, the amygdala is quick and simple and responds based on just one thing--how much eye white is showing.
