Following a six-month renovation, the Limelight Hotel Aspen will reopen in November.
The hotel currently is undergoing a top-to-bottom refresh, which includes public spaces such as the Limelight Lounge, conference room, lobby and bar, as well as all 126 guestrooms and suites and in-suite baths. Upgrades and improvements include a new arrival experience with the relocation of the reception desk and surrounding retail space, the addition of a Kids Club area, expanded seating for dining, as well as a relocation of the stage area in the Lounge to better accommodate events.
Stonehill Taylor, a New York City-based luxury design firm, is the team behind this project and also was responsible for designing the Limelight Hotel Snowmass, which opened in late 2018.
