We have been traveling to Aspen for the past 15 years and have always stayed at the Limelight. It’s perfectly convenient and located in the heart of downtown. The hotel has the most wonderful kid friendly amenities from the hot tub to the lounge and fireplace to the kid area equipped with computers and Xbox video games. Don’t forget to try the cookie skillet after a wonderful day of skiing or shopping. Adults may want the Old Fashion. All the best restaurants are walking distance but try the shuttle service if you don’t want to fight the cold nights with your lady in heels. 10 out of 10.

My husband and I had an amazing stay at the Limelight. We booked tickets at the Belly Up and decided to get a room to stay up in Aspen. I have nothing but praise for the wonderful staff and the room couldn't be more comfortable. We loved the tasty breakfast in the morning and enjoyed a soak before heading out onto the hill for some incredible early season conditions. Thank you mother nature! I love the Limelight!

This is our third or fourth stay at Limelight in the past ten years and the quality is as high as it's ever been. That's a really good track record. What stood out this time is the spacious room and the abundant and tasty breakfast with scenic views. Especially after snowfall.

During our stay at the Limelight Aspen from June 15th to 20th for the Aspen Food and Wine Classic, Manager Georgina truly made our experience exceptional. Her attentive and accommodating approach not only ensured a comfortable stay but also established a special connection that added a personal touch to our time at the hotel. The seamless services and her dedication made our visit truly unforgettable. The location was perfect, and the overall atmosphere was delightful, contributing significantly to our enjoyment of the event. Limelight Aspen, coupled with Georgina's exceptional care, made our stay not just about luxury and comfort, but about genuine hospitality and warmth. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a memorable Aspen experience.

We came for a family birthday and had never been to Aspen before. The hotel was wonderful and welcoming from the moment we arrived. Unfortunately I suffered from altitude sickness and the staff went above and beyond to make me more comfortable even leaving a wonderful get well package in our room. The rooms are so comfortable, bright and spacious and if you can cope in high altitudes you should definitely visit!

Really nice place. Excellent downtown location. Comfortable and even a bit swanky without being pretentious. And the staff was not only very pleasant and helpful, but seemed genuinely interested in our comfort and well being. And probably the best breakfast in town is included with the room.

This was not my first stay with the Limelight Aspen, but having been there on prior occasions is what brings me back! Previous trips were solo, but this time I have a husband and wanted to share the Aspen and Limelight experience with him. As with my visits, he was not disappointed, but very impressed with the hotel, their services and staff who are willing to go the extra mile to made sure our stay was nothing but perfect! The accommodations are upscale, inviting, warm and lovely. The location perfectly placed in the center of town with easy walking distance to dining and shopping! Especially helpful for us as a “senior” couple, convenience and ease are important factors when traveling, and Limelight’s courtesy shuttle is there for transportation to and from the airport, or as a connection to other sights. A well presented breakfast buffet is complementary, and dinner was delicious. There is no doubt we will be looking greatly forward to visiting the Limelight Aspen again!
