We only stayed at the Limelight for one night. We chose it based on Trip Advisor reviews and its close proximity to the Aspen Belly Up, where we going for a concert. Check in was seamless and we grabbed a quick pizza in the bar area before our concert. We found all of the Limelight staff to be extremely friendly... More

The hotel is very clean with large rooms and exceptional location. The staff is great, from the concierge to the reception desk to the housekeepers. The location is near everything you want to be near yet peaceful and quiet. Perfect for family stays.

Our stay at the Limelight Hotel was better than we could ever imagine. Limelight staff picked us up from the airport which is only 15 minutes away and we were quickly settled into our room thanks to a speedy check in. Our corner room was incredibly spacious and had 5 large windows. All decor, fixtures, and amenities were updated, simple,... More

As the mother of the bride, I stayed at the Limelight for a week and could not have been more pleased with every aspect of my stay,-- from the wedding reception held in the main lobby, the Aspen Suite, Henning and the food service, reception desk, servers, and all staff! The food and service was outstanding and our many guests... More

We stayed at the Limelight this Feb/Mar for around 10 days. It was the best choice we could have made. Having only been to ski resorts in Europe, we did not know what to expect. The staff were phenomenal dealing with our group (- we are a very chatty and somewhat disorganised family at times). And they were always up... More

If you are looking for super luxurious, this hotel may not be for you. If you are looking for comfort, relaxation, a place that isn't "over-the-top" but still give you everything you want in a high-end boutique-feeling hotel, I strongly suggest the limelight. You feel like you are staying at a home rather than an a hotel. The lounge is... More

I stayed at the Limelight for a few nights in July and would highly recommend it. Rooms are large and comfortable (loved the down comforter!), the breakfast buffet is delicious with plenty to choose from, and staff was super friendly. I did not have a chance to take advantage of their pool, but they do have one. Additionally, it is... More

Checking into the Limelight was super enjoyable, as the desk workers there answered all our questions and even answered our questions about the Aspen area as the concierge was on break. One of the best "continental" breakfasts you will ever have. All sorts of fruit, fresh pastries, french toast and coldcuts. Had something different everyday. The room was great with... More

The Limelight is in a great central location in the core of "downtown" Aspen. It is clean and the staff is very polite and helpful. Although it is "pet friendly," it is sensitive to others as there are "pet free" rooms and they do not allow pets in the lounge area when food is being served. The rooms are large,... More

Hi islands4321 Thanks for sharing your thoughts about your recent stay. That’s a great idea about including the band name on our activity board. We’ll get on it. We did have a busy stretch in June around the annual Food & Wine Festival and our patios saw heavy use as they offer some of the best views in Aspen. We... More
