I had never stayed at the Limelight despite having stayed at many hotels in the area, including Little Nell. I arrived on May 7 and was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness of the hotel, kindness of staff and the very nice rooms. The staff went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable as well as my mother who is a bit frail. A wonderful experience. I definitely will stay there again!

Beautiful rooms, very spacious, nice furnishings, and bed linens were lovely. Also, the complimentary breakfast is fantastic with a large assortment of breakfast foods. Would highly recommend this hotel.

The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. I loved the clock radio console with phone docking and sleep sounds. All staff I encountered were wonderful. Nice amenities. Awesome atmosphere in and around the hotel, especially the bar/lounge area. The fitness center was really nice too. By far the best breakfast!

It was our first time staying at this hotel. We arrived on a Friday and departed on Sunday. There was parking available on the street very close to the hotel (off-season). Check-in was easy and the hotel staff were extremely friendly. I made a reservation for the Luxury King room and it was well worth it. The room was clean and tidy. It had updated amenities including a fireplace. The room was stocked with wine and pint glasses as well as silverware, plates and a cork screw (which we used quite a bit). The room had an outdoor balcony with a table and chairs as well as two lounge chairs to relax in. The view overlooked downtown Aspen and had a pretty decent view of the slopes. Overall I was extremely pleased with our stay at the hotel. Would definitely book this hotel in the future.

Room Tip: Luxury King rooms are quite nice. Feature a balcony overlooking Aspen and a fireplace. They are on...

The room was fantastic! I had a King Size Deluxe room which was quite spacious at 440 SQFT. I loved the hotel's commitment to Green practices. The hotel was perfectly located for our needs. I wish I had a delicious, healthy continental breakfast like the Limelight has back at home!

We use to live here years ago and hadn't been back since 2006. Found a great pre-Christmas deal so took advantage of it. Read a few reviews on tripadvisor and expedia which all seem good. When we arrived the hotel was just what we hoped for.

As we came in out of the snow there was a live band playing some mellow bluesy music in front of the cracking log fire while guests sat around big comfy sofas enjoying complimentary cookies. Being in the Christmas business I immediately noticed how well the hotel had decorated which just added to its charm. The check in staff were great and understood that a bunch of folks arriving from the UK would no doubt just wanna get to their rooms.

The room was perfect for a family of 4, large with 2 queen beds, an immaculate bathroom and kitchen facilities. I use to run lodges in the Rockies so am accustomed to the standard that visitors there are looking for. There is nothing I would do to the Limelite to make it better, its just perfect.

We particular y loved breakfast in front of the floor to ceiling glass windows with views of the mountains. The staff were genuinely friendly, not false American friendly that often comes with the hospitality industry. Nothing was too much trouble from organizing a horse drawn sleigh ride to snowmobile tours and restaurant reservations. Location is slap bang in the middle of town, right next to Wagner Park, a snowballs trough away from some of the best restaurants is town such as Rustique, The Wild Fig and Jimmy's.

A truly luxurious hotel without snobery - My new home from home!

Room Tip: They are all good, you cant go wrong

I stayed for one night in this lovely lodge. The location was perfect, right in the middle of town. I had booked a special rate that included a bottle of wine, but I was so excited to find 2 large bottles of water in the room mini-frig. The room was very spacious and well appointed, with two robes, large bottles of shampoos, lotions and soaps. IThe am breakfast was delightful...lots of fresh juices, fruits, homemade granola, meats and cheeses, cereals and baked goods. I would definitely stay again
