Giving the good ol' ski lodge an upscale and modern twist, the Limelight Hotel Snowmass offers guests affordable luxury in the heart of a mountainside wonderland. As the newest location for Limelight Hotels (you can check out other accommodations in Aspen and Ketchum, Idaho), Snowmass is the latest in a long legacy that originated in the 1950s when the Limelight was the “The Ski and Spur Bar.” Over the years, the Limelight transformed into a trendy hotel, providing guests comfort and relaxation amidst the breathtaking Colorado landscape.
What makes it special?
How does VIP access to the slopes sound? The adventures at the Limelight are endless and, thanks to the hotel’s partnership with Aspen Snowmass, guests are in for a real treat. With First Tracks, you’ll gain access to the lifts and gondolas before they are officially open. Red-carpet treatment? Yes, please.
How about exclusive access to skiing professionals? Inside Tracks is offered, thanks to a partnership with Aspen Snowmass ski resort’s Ski & Snowboard Schools, and it provides visitors with access to tips from ski and snowboard experts. In summer, check out Inside Trails for a three-hour, exclusive guided bike ride that will take you on scenic route through breathtaking aspen groves.

Favorite traveler review
“Let's start with just how friendly the staff is! The shuttle drivers, the kitchen staff, the reception desk and everyone in between are always so helpful. The rooms are well-appointed and thoughtfully decorated. My favorite touch is that there's always a book and a game in the room. That's a great way to unplug for a bit. Breakfast at this hotel is superb! So much to choose from, but my favorite is their French toast.” — Aimee S., Google Reviews
