How would you know in advance that your hotel is main host for Aspen Gay Ski Week if they didn't tell you in advance? We were only there for half the week that the frivolities kicked off - the spirit was definitely increasing over the week. We joined in the fun but it absolutely took over the hotel so is worth knowing about this if you are considering to go to Aspen over MLK weekend.
Limelight Hotel is actually a great spot. We had a personal situation while we were there and the staff couldnt have been more sympathetic and pleasant.
The rooms are all brand new- great standard- we chose one w/ patio doors and a fireplace- the latter definitely recommended.
Breakfast was satisfactory- not fantastic, but there is food enough to line your stomach for a day's skiing. The evening bar menu was perfect for après ski.
For skiing, the hotel is great. They have a mini 4 Mountain Sports and ski concierge on site w/ ski storage. Hotel has complimentary shuttle to the slopes, and the public ski bus stop is a 2-3min walk.
We had a fabulous trip!
