I can't say enough good things about this hotel!!!! I don't write reviews often, but this hotel really exceeded my expectations and everyone should know how great they are, so it's definitely worth the time!
I've stayed at quite a few hotels and have to say this is one of my FAVORITES. The rooms were AWESOME – new, clean, modern, mini kitchen with a keurig, full bottles of soaps/lotions. The beds were comfortable and the balcony views were GORGEOUS.
I really can't rave enough about the service of the staff & housekeeping staff. We brought our pups with us and on-top of them being dog-friendly, they even provided us with a dog bed & dog bowls. So sweet! I'm a little high maintenance when staying at hotels (always calling front desk to get more hangers, towels, salt/pepper, ironing board, etc.) and every time I called they were there within minutes.
One thing that really motivated me to write this review was the HONEST & efficient housekeeping staff. I left my Apple watch (and apparently a few other items, whoops!) after I checked out and thought it was gone forever, but I called the hotel thinking it was worth a shot and they said they had it and they'll ship it to me!!! I was THRILLED. I feel like it's rare to come across such honest people these days, so kudos to the housekeeping staff!
Another thing that really struck me was when we put a "do not disturb" sign on the door (b/c we went rafting & dogs were in the room) when we got back, there was a message on our phone from the front desk saying if we needed anything such as fresh towels, etc. feel free to call them. It's simple, but it was a nice gesture and they went out of their way to give us a call. That's what you call awesome service people!!
Lastly, what really set this hotel apart from others was the amount of fun activities there is to do! Can't wait to bring my kiddos back here one day!! They have endless amounts of lawn games they put out everyday and put on activities such as a movie night w/ a big projector on the lawn. So much fun!!!
Would highly, highly, recommend this hotel!!! Thank you Limelight for making our experience in Aspen/Snowmass such a great one. We'll be back next year!!!
My wife and I took our first trip to Aspen/Snowmass and stayed at the Limelight Hotel Snowmass. The Limelight provides a free shuttle service from the Aspen airport to the hotel. Trayce picked us up from the airport and gave us some great local advice on places to eat and things to do. We had planned to hike, bike and go rafting, but weren't sure how to setup these trips. We were greeted/checked in by Jay and Mark. These two men were extremely helpful in making recommendations on things to do in the area. Jay, stepped up and made a list of the things we wanted to do during our stay. He then helped us schedule the trips and get us going on our vacation. The hotel was outstanding, new, clean, located near the Snowmass Mall and has access to the free transportation buses to and from Aspen, but also in the Snowmass Village. We had an issue with our air conditioning unit not working properly, but Chad and Maureen helped us quickly by switching our room. Chad even helped us move our bags to the new room! The service was truly outstanding. The complimentary breakfast provided daily is fully loaded and is a must do to get your ready for the day. We had a great vacation and hope to come back soon! We would definitely stay at the Limelight Hotel Snowmass again as they make you feel like family!
