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...

The rooms are very spacious, the driving staff excellent and the front desk staff overworked. The location if great as it is very close to the central transportation area and within walking distance to everything in the town. We loved the public space with the large fireplace, lots of seating, music during "happy hour" and apres ski atmosphere. Breakfast in...

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.

Awesome hotel next to ski slopes and downtown Aspen! Modern, with a nice restaurant, workout facilities and a pool. Also, very pet and family friendly. Service was warm, friendly and always helpful. Would give it 6 stars if that were possible.

We went to the Limelight lounge for dinner on a Monday night during the winter holidays just after New Year's. It's a lively crowd in a great location. My son had pizza; he thought that there was a spice added to the tomatoes or the pizza itself that was a bit spicy but he liked the pizza overall. It is...

The Limelight hotel is well located. The rooms are spacious and quite nice. The ski and boot room is also very nice, despite the smell in the lift. However, the ambience is poor, with the living area/ lounge rarely clean and sometimes used for functions. The much vaunted breakfasts were so poor that we sometimes went elsewhere for breakfast.
