The Limelight hotel is right in the middle of Aspen, so easy to walk anywhere. The facilities are beautiful and clean with a very friendly and helpful staff. They have activities that you can join in on like hikes and bike tours. I wanted to participate but just couldn't fit any in with our busy schedule. Likewise with the free... More

The Limelight has a good vibe that makes it a great spot to stay-centrally located at the corner of downtown Aspen. The rooms include breakfast buffet until 10am-hearty choices, and house-made gluten free granola. Rooms are nice and large with a refrig and micro and we had a small deck with 2 chairs. Staff is very service oriented, cheerful and... More

This is our 3rd stay at Limelight, so I guess it's safe to say that we like it. Actually it's more love than like. Today the staff did something pretty extraordinary (I'll explain in a minute), that deserved immediate and thorough praise. Unfortunately, we didn't call soon enough in the season to book our favorite room, (yes, we have one).... More

Our stay at the Limelight Hotel was as close to perfect as we could imagine. Everything about the hotel met or exceeded our expectations. The room decor combined with zero noise inside or outside the hotel was perfect. The professional staff was available to handle all of our needs. We would like to give extra praise to Nicholette who was... More

We visit Aspen every August to enjoy the outdoors. This is our first stay at the Limelight. We will certainly stay here in the future. The staff has been great from check in, to departure. The onsite "Adventure Concierge" has been spot on with his advice about hiking, biking, restaurants, etc. The breakfast which is included has been very good.... More

I would stay at the Limelight over and over again. Perfect location, fun atmosphere, and great staff!! The prices were fair and the bar and restaurant were great. Live music and cocktails almost nightly. Also, the free breakfast is a real plus, obviously.

We didn't stay at the hotel but ordered a carry out gluten free pizza to eat in the park right across the street. The pizza was tasty and made with fresh ingredients. Definitely would purchase again and perfect for a picnic in the park on a beautiful day.

Came here with extended family - they had been to Aspen multiple times and love this hotel. We had a Luxury room and my parents-in-law had a gorgeous Suite with views of Red Mountain. Approximately 10 minutes to Aspen airport. Within 1 block walking distance to shops/restaurants in Aspen - perfect! Concierge was great with orienting us to the town... More

The location of this hotel can't be beat. The complementary breakfast is a nice amenity, as is the limited afternoon room service menu. The staff are all very genuinely enthusiastic and happy to help. They had music several evenings, and the bar is festive with its fireplace and cozy seating. We enjoyed our stay here and felt it was a... More

While I hadn't been to Aspen in many years, I typically stayed at The Gant. Noticed the Limelight had some good reviews so decided to check it out. Glad I did! The property is in a great location, close to the downtown activities but on a quieter side street. We were there early, before check in time, so took advantage... More

Dear Marsley, Thank you so much for your positive and thorough review.
