I can't think of any other superlatives. The Limelight provided my wife and I just a perfect stay for 5 days in early March. They have large SUV;'s and vans and luxury cars with the nicest and most courteous drivers. They just don't say "no". The front desk staff is very efficient and knowledgeable. The room (#415 I think) was huge with views of Ajax and downtown Wagner park from the spacious shared 4th floor balcony. The bathroom was well done and elegant. The bed was not over-stuffed but very comfortable. It was so quiet at night you thought you were out at a country ranch. Better yet there was a kitchen with a full-sized fridge/freezer. We walked a block to a liquor store and stocked up for bloody Mary's in the am! But I must repeat the mantra seen in previous reviews: The breakfast buffet is unique and robust. So much for every palate. I really appreciated this pre-ski. Of course we were there to ski, and we had previously stayed up in Snow Mass at the venerable Viceroy. (The Viceroy pampered us with ski-in/out and I was not sure we were going to like having to walk to Ajax or get a shuttle out to snowmass or buttermilk or highlands). But this being our 2nd ski trip to the Aspen/Snowmass 4 mountain area, we decided to stay in Aspen, close to all of the nightlife and fine dining and shopping. If you rent your equipment from 4-Mountain sports and just turn it back in every day, you don't have to lug all that gear around-which is nice. The hotel was always there to drop you off and pick you up at whichever resort you ended up that day. And the apres-ski scene at Limelight is one of the best in town. Just a great atmosphere with gourmet pizza aplenty. Location is superior as you are short walks to everything the little town has to offer. The only thing that was disappointing (and this is not Limelight's fault) is that Aspen Mountain is just a short walk, and I thought that we would be doing most of our turns there, until I realized that Ajax is a bit much for a Novice-Intermediate couple of skiers from the deep south!
But I assure you you cannot go wrong with the LimeLight. I probably left out a lot but feel free to email if any questions.
