“Fantastic hotel right near the downtown area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

Great hotel. Really easy to miss the front door as it's in the middle of the street and really doesn't look like a hotel. Great pool area. Bar too. Ask for a room on the 4th floor that has the outside rooftop lounge area. Bed comfortable. Great bathroom amenities. Very clean and modern but not overly hipster either. Great views of the slopes and downtown Aspen. Would definitely return.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms on the 4th floor that have the outside entertaining area

Travelled through Colorado recently and our plans had to be changed due to unseasonal snow falls. Had two nights booked at the Limelite and unfortunately could not get through to book in on the first night because of the snowy condition and a major delay on I70 due to a truck accident.

Arrived at Aspen a day late due to the above and you guessed it, it was snowing again. Booked in at Limelite, went our room and pulled back the curtains to see a magnificent snow covered mountain, ski slopes, falling snow. Didn't plan on this but not grizzling either. It was great.

The room at Limelite was spacious and well appointed as was the bathroom. Nice gas log fire to keep us warm and good comfortable bed. Room was very clean and décor maintained.

The staff were very good - from the reception staff to the restaurant all very courteous and helpful. Very thankful to the Manager who assisted us in arriving at a good outcome for us due to the unused night previously booked. Thankyou.

Hope to get back to the USA again soon and would like to catch up on some of the activities we had planned that were "snowed" out and will definitely book again at the Limelite. 5 star from top to bottom.

Room Tip: Rooms close to the ice machine may get a bit of noise. Our room was away from that. Higher rooms wi...

Hi David P,

Thank you for the kind words. We are happy you were able to make it here despite the crazy Colorado weather. Please come back anytime to enjoy the activities you missed out on, or pay us a visit this winter when snow is a good thing. I'll join you for First Tracks on Aspen Mountain.

We spent our honeymoon there and it was an unforgettable experience. All the staff is extremely helpful and friendly. The ski concierge, Casey, was always there for us, providing us with the best options and suggestions. The room is clean, cozy and well equipped. The breakfast is diverse and delicious. The après ski and the hot tub are great ways to end the day. Beside all that, the hotel have drivers and cars to take the guests anywhere. You literally won't have to worry about anything.

The Limelight is reasonable, and ideally located in town. The staff is very friendly, helpful and professional. The room was well-designed and quiet, and had a private terrace with amazing views. The staff were able to advise us about hiking and other activities, and would drive us wherever we needed to go around town. For one hike, which was out of range for their complimentary shuttle, they let us borrow a new Audi A8 no charge. It doesn't get much better than that!

Room Tip: We had a room on the top floor, which had a really nice terrace and views.

Travelling in USA Southwest we made a detour for one night in Aspen. We found the hotel in top shape, extremely friendly reception, simple but tasteful decor. Quiet room with reasonable size. It was stormy in the evening so we decided to eat at the bar near the lobby and fireplace. Again, nice choice! Recommend!

The Limelight is the best value for your money...without skimping. It's a four star place with three star prices. Staff was exceptional - friendly and helpful. (They even let us repair our bike in their bike locker.) It has one of the best breakfasts buffets you'll find. They don't skimp, and its included in the price. The Limelight is centrally located. You're a block from downtown, two blocks from the free bus service that will take you anywhere, and four blocks from the gondola. They'll also take you anywhere you want to go in town for free, from the airport to all the trails. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.
