Great people watching at The Limelight during the X games. It is always entertaining apres ski which is deferred to the Monster Drink ensemble during the X games weekend. As always everyone is cheery and friendly and the pizza is really good (especially with one of the bonus coupons you might get with your lift ticket or at the visitor...

I travelled with my American sister in law and English family and we all agreed that this hotel was extremely overpriced only to be told 'Well this is Aspen". Others may disagree as is evident by their reviews which were responsible for us selecting this hotel after extensive research. We found neither quality nor value for money so be warned....

We (my wife and and I and two teenagers) were very excited to go to Aspen and stay at the Limelight. We had read the raving reviews of the hotel. Expectations were also extra high as we had paid close to $1,000 a night for a 4 night stay (due to President weekend, there was a 5 day minimum charge)....

Arrived with bags and ski gear- no help carrying bags into hotel. Lobby and common area is dreary, dated and dull. Breakfast is what you'd expect at a Comfort Inn!!!-, dinged chairs and tables- no table cloth napkins etc. Had to ask 2 times to have our room cleaned and clogged drain attended to as housekeeping had not come by...

Bonnie225, We are sorry you feel this way about your experience here. It’s unusual that you feel the lobby is dated and the breakfast inferior as these regularly receive outstanding reviews here on Tripadvisor and from our guests in-person. We do our best to get our housekeepers to every room as early as possible, however we have to work around...

I had a great time at the Limelight Hotel. The staff was great, super friendly & helpful. The room was a nice size, modern, clean & had a great view of Aspen Mountain.

Ski lockers were the greatest thing to me, besides the pool and that they had coin operated laundry rooms, bring some pods. They have a great breakfast bar and spiced apple cider (packets).

First time at the Limelight and it's now my favorite spot. Extremely close to all restaurants and the gondola - and their free breakfast made it very easy when getting ready to hit the slopes.
