I really enjoyed my recent stay at the Limelight. I was there for a weekend of hiking/climbing and the hotel was a great place to come back to at the end of a tiring day. The staff was friendly and courteous, the food was quite good (breakfast was tasty and abundant) and the room was spacious, comfortable and clean. Make... More

Our first impressions were very poor, but it got better. First the decor is drab and carpets look in need of updating. The communal area was dark and uninviting, particularly with the young men lounging with their bare feet on the furniture. We stayed in a Hampton suite, for a fraction of the price of The Limelight, it managed to... More

We were very pleased with our four night stay. Large , comfortable room that was very clean. The beds were very comfortable. The breakfast had a great selection and included a hot selection. I would definitely return. The staff was pleasant.

Stayed at the Limelight one night (unfortunately) as a stopover on a longer trip. What a great hotel and city. When we pulled out of town the next day we were already planning a return and talking about what a great hotel and town this was. Everything is as you would want it when spending your money and time on... More

Limelight Hotel exceeded all expectations! Extremely courteous staff. Willing to help with any questions. Very warm and inviting place. The pizza is a must have. And the price was reasonable considering you are in Aspen.

Centrally located, stylish, and includes breakfast. Our room was impressively roomy and retreat-like. Breakfast was good for an included buffet. Overall, the bar and restaurant operations could use a little work to be top-notch for this market; just a little though - good. Covered parking available for a good price, nice pool area. We will stay again.

We planned our Colorado vacation to catch a couple of the stages of the US Pro Cycling Challenge and booked three nights in Aspen at the Limelight hotel. Our beautiful room had a balcony and was only a couple of blocks from the race start and finish line. Service was outstanding, every question and request was handled by the staff... More

First a thank you to Manager Elizabeth who was so helpful at check in. Even though they were at 100% occupancy, she found a room for us to check into. It wasn't an upgrade, but it had a great view and it was clean and spacious. All the front desk staff were very polite and efficient. The bed in the... More
