If you are a fan of historic house museums, you will love the tour of this historic hotel! I loved their collection of Victorian Murphy beds. the tour guide was knowledgable and informative. What an added treat to a cute historic mining town. Enjoy!

While on our way to the Georgetown Colorado Loop Railroad (another great destination) today, we found ourselves with some extra time. We went into Georgetown and found the Hotel de Paris Museum open. We took the 30-40 minute guided tour of the Museum. Our tour guide was excellent and well informed. The Hotel has been restored to almost exact original,... More

It is unusual in this day and age to be able to see a Victorian establishment with 90% of its interior intact. The Hotel de Paris in Georgetown allows visitors to see almost exactly what the hotel looked like when it was run in the early 1900's. I thought it was wonderful, and our guide, Sophie, was just wonderful. The... More

We weren't able to tour the kitchen (one of my favorite parts of touring historic places) because a guest speaker was in there with a group. The rest of the hotel, and our guide, were great!

The Hotel de Paris is a true slice of time travel. The Colonial Dames have done a really awe-inspiring job of restoring and preserving not only the original furnishings but keeping them in their original locations; in most cases, even the original paint is still on the walls. It is an image of a bygone era that is still virtually... More

We arrived too late for the tour of the hotel, but the host was extremely informative and pleasant. There are items for sale that are beautiful, well priced and help with the funding of the museum.

While wandering the shops, we came upon the Hotel de Paris Museum and paid $3. each (AAA rate) for the 45 minute tour. The guide was so interesting and answered every question. The building, furnishings, photos, rugs etc. were almost all originals. It was the first hotel with "indoor amenities" between Chicago and California. I am a Colorado native but... More

We had an informative tour of the Hotel. It was amazing how well preserved it is -- even with original magazines and books from the 1st owner. The kids were somewhat interested, but did not like the cellar. I thought that was a little creepy too. Overall, a good tour, priced nicely for families. They offer a AAA discount too.

Stumbled onto this by accident and took the 45-minute tour. Beautiful old relic of a hotel, including odd items like :"desk beds" and original flooring and carpets, plus the framed prints in the same location where the owner hung them so long ago. Wish we had more time to explore the cute downtown, too.
