This is a great option for a stay in Aspen for a family of 4. As a family, we really appreciated the following: 1. Great breakfast, lots of hot entries, included in your hotel rate 2. In the heart of Aspen for shops and restaurants (less ideal for skiing) 3. Our room had a fridge, microwave, and extra sink, which... More

We stayed at The Limelight on the recommendation of friends and were not disappointed. Transportation to and from the Aspen airport is provided. The hotel is architecturally cool and nicely appointed inside. Modern and fun. Well-located, right across from Rubey Park. Staff is outstanding---welcoming, warm, responsive, and professional---the greatest strength. Excellent buffet breakfast included, with a varied and extensive selection... More

The Limelight is located in the center of Aspen, within walking distance to everything. The hotel and rooms are clean and well appointed. The hotel is not luxurious like the Little Nell or St. Regis, but the service is good and they have a very nice breakfast that is included each day. It is a comfortable place that is not... More

But here, you do get what you pay for: great location and top notch service, large comfortable rooms, a great pool and spa area, a wonderful lounge with nice food and beverage--especially the wood fired pizzas.

Great hotel in perfect location. The staff is so friendly and the free breakfast was outstanding! We would definitely stay at the Limelight again on our next trip to Aspen. They also provide free shuttle service anywhere in the area and free bike rentals. You will love it.
