I've heard about the Boulderado for years, but this was my first opportunity to stay there. It's an old building (with a newer addition) that has tried to maintain it's old-style atmosphere. It is not an easy building to navigate, and rooms can end up being a long way from the entrance to the hotel. For anyone needing an elevator,... More

Loved this place. If you want to "experience" Boulder, stay here. Rooms are quaint, furnished like you are staying in your grandmother's house. Location is ideal. Right downtown, you can walk to any number of shops and restaurants. I stayed in the historic tower - not sure there is much of a difference between the two sides - and the... More

We spent 4 very pleasant days at the Boulderado. It was great! We stayed on the historic side which was very cool and charming, and quiet. The staff was friendly, courteous and always on the look-out to assist. We had two very good breakfasts at the hotel and one dinner; all were excellent; scones were terrific. Hotel in great location... More

I stayed here 2 nights and found the bed to be very comfortable and the room to be clean and in good shape. Tiles on bathroom floors are often dirty, but the ones in my room were perfectly clean and very pretty. The heater worked perfectly. I asked for a quiet room and got one. The staff were very friendly... More

This is a hotel which should impress, but it doesn't. The quaint old charm does not carry the hotel enough to compensate for the poor bar service and loud rooms and cold breakfast. That being said, the location is excellent, the valet is appreciated, and the front desk staff were excellent and helpful. But overall, for the price, this doesn't... More

We were shown a room at the historic section of the hotel. It was quite dark and smelled of antique shops. We chose to stay at the new wing instead. The room was very very clean. Not luxurious but the location cannot be beat. The service was very good. Room service prompt and delicious. Wifi was very fast.

We are locals who just had the privilege of staying at the Boulderado while our house was being remodeled. While we've often enjoyed the ambiance of the lobby during the holidays, the restaurants, and many special events, this was our first overnight stay. Our room (507) had a spectacular view of the Flatirons and Downtown Boulder. We could even see... More

We stayed in the "newer" wing and our rooms were fine. We were in room 425, the room itself was clean & comfortable. The only drawback was the noise level at night from whatever machinery is in the back interior court. We were there Oct. 10-17, and I always like fresh air at night. You could run the interior fan...

Love staying at the Boulderado when in Boulder. This hotel has great history. Great location only two blocks from the Pearl street walking mall with great shops and food locals. Rooms in the old part are not huge unless you get a suite but are perfect for a cozy, romantic stay. I would recommend the old main part just because... More

I did not stay at this ultra old hotel but had lunch there. I was disappointed in the overall neglect of both the preparation of the food and the service. The clam chowder was watery and the garlic toast had so much garlic that I was sweating garlic the remainder of the day. Our server was neglectful as he stood... More
