Across the board, Exceptional! The hotel location, service, room and amenities are superior, but their "continental breakfast" surpasses all. Perhaps it should be re-branded as the "Super Breakfast" to reflect its content and quality. (Sorry, NFL fans, I could not resist.)

I can't say enough about this hotel! It was perfect in just about every way! The location is awesome, and very walkable to every place in downtown Aspen. The interior is really high-end and clean/contemporary, but yet warm and inviting too. There is a huge fireplace in the dining area (front of hotel/lobby area) that they keep burning at all...

An annual swim meet brought us to Aspen and the Limelight. We had a great stay! The room was well appointed with two queen beds, a small kitchenette equipped with a small refrigerator, microwave, sink, plates, glasses and utensils, and a nice sized bathroom complete with robes.

We enjoyed our brief stay at this well-located hotel in Aspen. Plenty of energy in the lounge with all ages present. Food in the lounge, including breakfast, was very good. Staff was friendly, room was comfortable and quiet. Something about the wide hallways was also appealing. Glad to recommend this hotel.

I have stayed at the Limelight on 3 separate occasions - once when they first opened and twice afterward. The staff is always friendly, rooms beautiful, nicely appointed, and clean. I love the availability of the shared balconies with great views of Ajax. Our last trip was April 2014. We brought (our favorite family member) our black lab. We bring...

We stayed at the Limelight in early Sept and it was a great place. Rooms were immaculate and "continental" breakfast was absolutely perfect! Everything you could want for a morning meal. Prepared and presented very nicely. Location though, is this hotel's best feature. Walking distance to downtown and great restaurants and a nice drive to Maroon Bells area. We stayed...

Awesome location to explore Aspen. My 6-year-old daughter and I were there for a gymnastics meet, and the hotel was perfect location. I loved that it felt very adult and contemporary, yet it was also a comfortable environment for a child. Pool/hot tub area family-friendly. Beautiful view from the room. Comfortable beds. Clean.
