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.

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
