Actually way to expensive, but great service, great rooms and very good location makes up for most of it. And-there is no sutch thing as a cheap hotel in Aspen, so...

Our family of 4 endured 2 airports and 4 cxld flights due to a big storm. Our 4th flight had just been cxld and I happened to speak with another woman whose flight was also cxld. She and her husband recommended the Limelight and had stayed there the previous week.

We were too tired to do more research than absolutely necessary, so after seeing the many positive reviews, we decided to stay here for the night, and we are so very glad we did.

Peter at the front desk along with Pedro the shuttle driver and the manager ( forgot his name) were incredible. Warm, friendly, and so welcoming which was really nice after our long and stressful day at the airports.

The hotel itself is very modern and brand new (2 years old). Our room was smallish but immaculate and comfortable. It is located in the heart of downtown Aspen which is just gorgeous. Wish we had more time to spend here.

Thank you to all who helped turn a bad day into a great night !! And thank you to the woman and her husband who recommended this hotel to us!!

My husband and I stayed at the Limelight Lodge from 2 til 5 January this year. We were staying in Aspen celebrating our Honeymoon.
Upon arrival at Aspen airport we were met by Ben (he’s very knowledgeable about the area and was happy to provide info on the hotel, ski runs etc) and were taken direct to the Limelight Lodge in their courtesy shuttle bus (one of the benefits included with the daily resort fee of $30). The drive is no more than 10 minutes.
As soon as you walk in to the Lodge you will notice the large comfortable sofas, the log fire on the back wall and the cosy bar area with floor to ceiling windows allowing lots of natural light. To the left is the Reception area – the staff were friendly and professional We had arrived an hour before the official check-in time but one quick call from Reception to the Housekeeping staff allowed us early entry to our room.
Room 315 was on the third floor of the hotel but the décor in the halls still made it appear that you were in an intimate lodge in the mountains. Our room was large, spotlessly clean and very modern – huge kingsize bed, plasma TV on the wall, bathrobes, coffeemaker (with the best coffee I’ve ever tasted!) and a small kitchenette complete with sink, microwave, cutlery and fridge. There is plenty of wardrobe space with large mirrors so you can fully unpack and settle in. The Lodge provided complimentary bottled water and a fruit plate in our room.
The hotel is a short walk to the Silver Queen Gondola at the base of Aspen Mountain. If, like me, you are a non-skier/snowboarder I’d recommend purchasing a return ticket to travel up to the top of the mountain. The views of Aspen town are spectacular on the way up/down. There is a restaurant/bar at the top where you can relax and soak up the atmosphere. The last gondola back to base is at 4pm.
Every day at 8am and 9am the courtesy shuttle takes skiers/snowboarders out to Snowmass Mountain and returns at 3pm and 4pm. Again, this is part of their service.
The outside pool and Jacuzzis were open every day. I’d highly recommend braving the cold and getting in, very relaxing (even when it’s snowing!).
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this hotel. The staff were all exceptionally friendly, the rooms very spacious, clean and of a very high standard, and the location is second to none – its just a short 2 minute walk in to Aspen town.
Although the hotel has 126 rooms we received a very personal service.
We cannot wait to return ..

I would recommend calling in to the small bus terminal on the other side of the park. Beside the free maps and information leaflets I picked up a 20% off ski/snowboard equipment hire coupon and my husband received a very good deal from a local store when I presented this!

Stayed here for 3 nights over Christmas - the place is located right in the middle of Aspen, making it an easy walk to the skiing and any of the restaurants. The accommodation was well presented, but it just felt a bit functional, rather than having any real character or cosyness (is that a word?....)
That said, the service was excellent, and we particularly liked the transfer service to the other mountains - we basically got a free taxi service to Aspen Highlands two days in a row which was great
You probably won't have any issues with this hotel, but I suspect there are more spectacular places for your money in Aspen - we also stayed at the Viceroy Snowmass on our trip, and that was streets ahead...

I would have rated this hotel excellent if it weren't for the cost. We stayed on the 4th floor in a King Deluxe room looking over the pool below. We stayed on a not so busy week; less than 50% occupancy in the hotel. It was perfectly quiet, clean and comfortable. The location of this place was great; walking distance to pretty much everything in town including the slopes. Just a few minutes drive to Buttermilk and Snowmass resorts. The hotel has a ski concierge which we found exceptionally helpful to get us set up for an impromptu ski day complete with lessons and rentals (because of our extenuating personal circumstances, we were not able to book the skiing in advance, so this service was very helpful). We found all of the staff to be very friendly and helpful. We paid for a 1 week street parking pass through the hotel for $5/week and had no problems parking on the street while we stayed (the garage was $15/day). There was a shuttle service to and from the ski resorts in the area. The continental breakfast was decent, but not the best we've had in a hotel (yet again this was certainly the priciest we've stayed at). It had bagels, toast, fresh fruit, cereal, good coffee, donuts and other pastries, hard boiled eggs, granola, yogurt, deli meats and cheeses. The fitness center was small, but clean. The outdoor pool and hot tub areas were a good size and it is open in the winter; just ask them to uncover it if it's covered up. They keep it covered on those colder days when nobody is using the pools and the hotel is less full.

This hotel is directly across from a nice public park area and allows dogs, so if you are travelling with your pup, this is a great location.

Because of the cost of this place I would not be inclined to pop up to Aspen for my next ski vacation. We have stayed at places as nice as this place for much less in big cities like Boston, DC and San Francisco. I understand it's Aspen, but with the resort fees, parking fees, regular room rates, and for what you get, the rates don't seem to be justified.

We went to Snowmass for our ski/snowboarding excursion. The snowboard instructor for the adult class was superb. Lots of intermediate level runs at this resort.
