I'm fairly picky about where I stay and I like boutique hotels. The Limelight ranks right up there. First of all, the location is perfect. It's in downtown Aspen right in the mix of things and within easy walking distance to restaurants, shops, grocery store, bus stop, etc. There's a big park across the street if you want to lounge around or have a place for kids to play.
The interior of the hotel is really cool and the rooms are top notch. We booked a King Terrace room and the terrace was HUGE. On the terrace was a large wicker couch and separate table and chairs. A great place for cocktails or to chill out. The breakfast that's included is quite large and the food quality is really good. If you bring your bicycle, they also have a dedicated and locked bike room with a bike stand and any tools you might need. A nice touch. The large lounge on the first floor is very large with a nice fireplace and lots of comfy furniture.
If you want to go to Maroon Bells, the bus stop is right across the park and comes every 20 minutes. The hotel staff has been trained well. They go out of their way to make things smooth. Our two week vacation to Europe next summer just got moved Aspen and we'll be very comfortable staying right here.
