After working to get a hotel built at Main and First streets since 2010, Ketchum officially welcomed Aspen Skiing Company’s Limelight Hotel at a grand opening celebration in January. The 175,000-square-foot hotel features 111 guest rooms and suites, 14 private residences, and 4,000 square feet of indoor function space. Rowland+Broughton Architecture / Urban Design / Interior Design based in Aspen, Colorado, created an interior design look that positions the property as a base camp. For example, a large, centrally located seating area focuses on a monolithic stone fireplace hearth, dubbed the “campfire” and has an overhead design installation utilizing fiber optics and lighting that replicates walking through a forest and emerging below a starry night sky. Throughout the hotel, color palettes are inspired by colors and textures of the natural environmental with primary materials including white oak, reclaimed barn wood, blackened steel and natural stone.

The home of Rockford’s new entrepreneurial event space may date back to the 1920s, but Rockford City Market is primed to showcase future creatives and makers of all kinds.

When you're in the mountains, it’s truly difficult to be bored. From skiing and snowboarding to hiking and climbing, the U.S. Mountain West and western Canada know how to keep things interesting when it comes to outdoor activities. But sometimes, the best way to enjoy the mountains is to sit back and take in the expansive views. Take your meetings to the mountains without the heavy snow gear and winter boots by hosting your next event on a rooftop venue surrounded by breathtaking mountains.
