Limelight Lodge

An Aspen institution.
Limelight Lodge, Aspen, Colo.

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.
