Aspen Hospitality, a division of Aspen Skiing Co., has transformed the Hotel Born — formerly a Kimpton property — into the 200-room Limelight Denver. Next to the city's Union Station, the hotel is the first urban location for the Limelight brand, and joins the existing Limelight hotels in Aspen and Snowmass, Colo., and Ketchum, Idaho.
Two additional properties, the Limelight Hotel & Residences in Mammoth, Calif., and Limelight Boulder (Colo.), are under construction and scheduled to open in 2025.
In the heart of the LoDo neighborhood and a direct light-rail ride from Denver International Airport, the Denver hotel features 14,000 square feet of meeting space and the Citizen Rail restaurant.
“This is an exciting day for Aspen Hospitality, as we officially introduce the first urban location to the Limelight portfolio,” said Alinio Azevedo, CEO of Aspen Hospitality. “We are focused on new markets that align with the brand’s deep-seated sense of curiosity and community, and give our team members the opportunity to work across varied geographies. Denver has long been a city that attracts those seeking the adventure lifestyle in a thriving city environment, making it an ideal location.”
The pet-friendly Limelight Denver has an adventure concierge who will tailor custom itineraries that take advantage of the property’s partnerships with the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Colorado Athletic Club and Aspire Tours. They also can map rides for guests using the hotel's complimentary bike rentals.
