The Limelight has been an Aspen institution since the 1950s, when former owner Glenn Yarbrough’s band, the Limeliters, held court there. November 2008 welcomed a new era, when the Limelight reopened after a two-year renovation. The new incarnation of the lodge brings the count to 126 rooms and suites, each with one king or two queen beds, and either a kitchenette or full kitchen. Modern is the décor of choice: In the sleek lobby, a rock fireplace dominates and a two-story wall of windows peers out over Aspen’s slopes. Evenings, guests congregate by the heated pool before hitting the après-ski party, with complimentary wines and hors d’oeuvres. limelightlodge.com
