Great location in town. Traveled in early Oct so rates were much cheaper than winter and a wonderful time with gorgeous fall color and few crowds. Large room extremely comfortable with excellent amenities, fridge, microwave, very large and nice bath. Upgraded room from basic but not the top. Mid to lower tier too and no need to go higher. Wonderful...

The staff and service at the Limelight Hotel has always been fantastic and goes above and beyond for their guests. They do an excellent job hosting the annual Gay Ski Week. We've stayed there several times already and will gladly return for our next visit!

At the base of AJAX mountain, it was a retreat. The rooms were beautiful and we were given an upgrade with a fireplace after losing a night due to a snowstorm keeping our plane grounded. From 3-7 they have free cookies and every morning there is a delicious full breakfast with tons of options. I have zero complaints!

The service, room, and facilities were all excellent. No real dining room--sitting area was an extension of the bar, serving bar food, which was OK for what it was. Not a 5 star dining room. Only complaint, also noted by other reviewers, was that on occasion the common areas were overrun by kids some of whom were not particularly well...

We visited in summer, 2015, and the accommodations were superb! You could have lived in our room it was so large. It easily accommodated a family of 4 and the kitchenette and modern bathroom were wonderful. Breakfast was wholesome and plentiful and we'd definitely stay here again.

Love the Limelight Hotel. Great location, music in lounge during happy hour most nights, excellent breakfasts included with your room. The staff couldn't have been nicer. Shuttle to and from the mountains along with airport. Walking distance to everything Aspen. The only place I'll stay for now on. Pool, hot tubs,small fitness center. All good.
