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.

We stumbled across this one and were very happy we did. It is at the upper end of town and fascinating. The hotel is mostly original decorations from over 100 years ago. If you have the time, I recommend it.

A very cool hotel in the heart of Georgetown built and managed by a Frenchman way back in the mining days. There is a brief but interesting tour of the facility, including the kitchen which still stocks cans of condiments well known to us today. (where else can you find cans with the name of Heinz's with an apostrophe? S.

Wonderfully decorated and fun tour of this hotel for the rich who would come up to Georgetown by train to stay in this lavish hotel of it's time! Highly recommend going through it!

I can't think of a more pleasant way to while away an hour in lovely historic Georgetown CO. The Hotel de Paris is an incredible building and the staff do it justice. Very few reproductions, as for the most part, the furniture, china, etc. are original to the property. You are quite literally stepping back in time. Not to be... More

Both my husband and I loved this museum. Most furniture and features down to the doorknobs and mattresses are original, dating to late 19th century. $5 got us admission and tour with five other people. Great deal for your money and a great way to spend 40 min in Georgetown. You learn about history and get to tour a downtown... More

Taking a tour of the Hotel de Paris is like stepping back in time thanks to our tour guide, Kevin. He knew so much he must have lived back then. He sure looks young for a guy who’s got to be well over a hundred years old! For every question we asked, he knew the answer. And he probably knows... More

Just like in old times, when travellers must have marvelled at this sophisticated hotel in the rough wilderness of Colorado, the museum today adds a further dimension to an excursion into the Rockies arund Denver. Steeped in Voloradobhistory, it is at the same time a testimony of the international diversity of the USA. Created by a French adventurer, with a... More
