The Limelight Hotel in Aspen, Colorado

The rugged, sophisticated charm of the mountains is no longer just for nature lovers. Experience all that Colorado has to offer at The Limelight Hotel – part of the Lifestyle collection of Preferred Hotels & Resorts – a chic retreat in the heart of Aspen that brilliantly combines the contemporary comfort of a boutique hotel with the casual, laid-back atmosphere of an old-fashioned ski lodge. Awash in neutral hues of mahogany, cream, and emerald green, with dramatic splashes of red, the Limelight lets the true beauty of nature shine through whether you want to experience a winter wonderland or spring thaw. Since opening its doors over 50 years ago, the Limelight remains committed to refining "the guest experience," offering pet friendly accommodations, complimentary transport to and from the airport (as well as around town!) , and exclusive access to the region's most sought after ski and snowboarding trails.

Accommodations are simple and spacious with high ceilings, granite finishes, and exquisite windows that open to the fresh mountain air. A community style breakfast welcomes early birds and late-risers alike between 7 and 10 AM, and in the winter you may heed the call of the mountains whenever you are ready. Skiers and snowboarders have exclusive access to the four mountains of Aspen's Snowmass. Intermediate and advanced level skiers yearning for the first crack at freshly laid powder may even register for First Tracks, an opportunity to hit the snow before anyone else gets up the mountain. The Limelight's convenient location within walking distance of Aspen's most notable landmarks, shopping centers, and eateries make it an ideal destination for visitors during every season. In the summer, hiking and biking are especially popular, with themed bike rides through town and access to mountain trails.

My wife and I stayed three nights at the Limelight during the "off season" period in Aspen between the ski- and summer-tourist seasons. The town is pretty quiet then and lots of businesses are closed for a break. At the Limelight, however, there was no sign of reduced staffing or a lessening of standards. The hotel is located at the edge of "downtown" Aspen but is an easy walk to shops and restaurants. All the staff were friendly and helpful, but not intrusive. Our room (a complimentary upgrade) was clean, spacious, and nicely appointed. In a perfect world it would have had a walk-in shower instead of a tub-shower, but that's just a minor quibble based on aging knees. The breakfast buffet was extensive and very tasty. All in all, we'd happily return to the Limelight when in Aspen.

The wife and I absolutely love this hotel. It was our first time staying here and we were blown away. The Location is perfect, free breakfast every morning, great rooms (free upgrade to a view) and incredible staff. Sole from Housekeeping went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable in our room. She was on top of everything we threw at her. This will be our "go to" hotel any time we come back to Aspen.

Limelight in Aspen was a great surprise. Went for a spring skiing week and the hotel couldn’t be better. The staff was very friendly, the rooms was great ( they gave me a free upgrade in my arrival) with a beautiful Mountain view. They had a busy apres ski with good music, very good breakfast, free transfers to the airport and to snowmass. Definitely coming back.

Three cheers for Matt and Cristina at check in finding us the best room for a reasonable rate. Their helpful and welcoming manner really set the tone for our stay. The room was clean, bed comfy and had good amenities. Super location and breakfast had many healthy choices.

Limelight is a great updated hotel in Aspen. Location is perfect. Walking distance to everything, bars, restaurants, and shopping. Upon check in the staff was warm and welcoming. I was given a free upgrade into a room with a beautiful terrace. This hotel does have an underground parking garage or a less expensive option of parking on the street with a parking pass. If its going to snow I would recommend the parking garage. This hotel has a free breakfast every morning. Plenty of options and a perfect way to start off the day. The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. The room doors are not very sound proof. That is probably the only bad thing I can say.
