One of the more budget-oriented options in the area, Limelight is a classic ski lodge in Aspen, situated in Wagner Park. Its location is close to downtown hot spots and skiing on Aspen Mountain. The downtown area offers local music, art and dining options. The mountain presents champagne powder and miles of ski terrain. An onsite ski school is taught by top professional skiers two days per week. Additionally, the Limelight offers complimentary programs like its Inside Tracks, an all-day tour of one of the four local mountains, and First Tracks, early access to Aspen Mountain; both are free to guests.
Nearby, families can also go on a dogsled ride. Summer activities are hiking, biking and river rafting. The resort’s rooftop terraces are popular, offering gorgeous views of the land and comfy couches to lounge in while enjoying the view. An outdoor pool and hot tubs are open seasonally from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. To get a jump start on the day, guests partake in a hearty breakfast that contains house-made cereals, yogurt, baked pastries and more. It is served in the Living Room at 7 a.m.
Spacious guestrooms received a facelift in 2014, which included new carpeting, furniture and drapery. All 126 rooms also contain vaulted ceilings, marble floors and oversized windows, too. Sumptuous bathrobes hang in the doorways. Two-bedroom suites also feature full kitchens, dining rooms and outdoor terraces. Fireplaces are also available and all rooms contain movies, games and DVD players for rent. Recognizing the woodsy terrain is a dog’s dream, too, Limelight welcomes pets for a small cleaning fee.
Limelight offers airport transfers from Aspen Airport. Be sure to request this service when booking your reservation.

We stayed at the Limelight Aspen last week, and were amazed by how attentive the staff were and how wonderful the complimentary breakfast was, there was plenty of choice including hot options. The rooms were spacious and the hotel amenities were lovely..... we loved the hot tubs and heated pool.

We stayed for two nights and it was awesome! The beds and pillows were super comfortable and the shower was amazing. They provide you with everything: towels, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, body lotion, hand soap and even bath ropes. We stayed in a bedroom with a little kitchen, with a microwave and a fridge, so you could reheat or cook some food there. Breakfast was included and it was really good: good quality and a lot of variety. The costumer service was great, everyone was super nice and kind! They have two hot tubs that looked really nice (we didn't get in). Everything was clean and neat all the time. A shuttle to the airport and everywhere else was included, and the driver was super friendly and nice! (I think his name was Ben). The location is very convenient, walking distance from everywhere: one or two blocks away from bars and restaurants, three blocks away from the gondola and five blocks away from the city market. In general, we had a great time and I would recommend staying there!
