The Limelight is a great 4-star Aspen hotel. It offers a classy luxury experience without feeling too stuffy. With only four floors, it is doesn't feel to large and many of the rooms have stunning views -- try to book a room facing Aspen Mountain. Rooms are updated and the sheets were high quality, the beds comfortable. I also liked the microwave in room, so I could heat up my leftovers. The location, right in the center of town, is also great. It isn't true ski-in/ski-out but they will shuttle guests to Aspen mountain on a moment's notice and also run shuttles to the other resorts.
Best of all if you are traveling with dogs, this hotel is very dog friendly. The staff goes out of their way to remember your pups names and there are no restrictions on size of dog or breed, as long as they are well behaved. The Limelight has a lobby area where meals are served and they have a few tables far enough removed from the main dining room where you can eat with your dog inside -- and get full service. This is a cool feature as so many hotels don't have this option at all.
For a laid-back but still posh sleeping experience in Aspen this hotel is hard to beat in the mid-range bracket. Please note this isn't a five star hotel, so if you want that experience, I suggest booking their sister property, the Little Nell.
Oh and they also have one of the best happy hours in Aspen and a great apres ski scene. The hotel is popular with athletes -- when I was there the entire Red Bull pro team was also staying.
