We got a last minute deal to stay at the Limelight Lodge and boy did we luck in. The room was large, clean, nicely appointed and looked out over the Aspen ski runs. We had fruit in our room when we arrived and water in the fridge, very welcome after a 20 hour journey to get there.
The next morning we got up to enjoy a fabulous "continental" breakfast of the sort I've never had on the continent! Loads of fresh fruit, bagels, ham (smoked salmon on Sundays), muffins (freshly cooked), all that stuff.
And then we spoke to the Ski Valet who arranged for a private car to take us to the slopes!!!! If you ski the Aspen hill, you are only a few blocks away, but still they run you there if you want. No walking in ski boots here! The Limelight is fantastically well located. All the restaurants are just a few minutes walk away.
And because the hotel is owned by the lift company, as you ski down, you leave your skis with the storage people, tell them which mountain you want to ski at the next day (there are four to choose from) and there they are for you the next day. How civilised is that!
But the best thing about the Limelight Lodge is the staff. Really friendly and helpful. Just a really nice atmosphere to stay in.
Thanks again, guys. You made a great trip really special
