The Limelight is perhaps one of my favourite ski hotels in the US – I cannot fault anything about it. It is located just by the park where all the ski buses meet, so about 7 mins walk in ski boots from the Silver Queen gondola and 5 mins walk from the restaurants/ shops etc.
The rooms are really spacious and have a small kitchenette (coffeemaker, fridge, microwave) which is ideal for jet lag munchies/ morning cup of coffee and a good sized bathroom.
The lobby/ bar area apparently used to be fairly redundant but now they have daily live music for après which is popular with locals and guests and also now serve pizza in the evening, which is really tasty and perfect for the first night when you arrive and if you can’t be bothered to venture out in the evening. Breakfast is also superb with a wide choice of continental fare – freshly baked muffins/ pastries etc.
The front desk staff are all really helpful and will do everything they can to help.
A great new addition at the Limelight is the new “Insider Tracks” which is a complimentary ski/ride guide service especially and only for Limelight guests. It is in partnership with Aspen/ Snowmass ski school and is offered on Mondays and Fridays. They will visit a different mountain each time. Space is limited so guests can either sign up in advance of their stay or upon check in.
Locals are also raving about the Limelight which is always a good sign. I cannot recommend this property highly enough!
