I usually stay at hotels associated with the large chains, but the Hotel Boulderado reminded me how much I miss by not staying at local hotels. The hotel is historic and old, but in full modern functioning order. Service and room cleanliness were impeccable! From the bell staff that ALWAYS opened the door for guests, to the very courteous front... More

Front desk staff was very courteous and knowledgeable of the area. Rooms were spacious and extremely comfortable. Hotel bar was perfect spot to have a drink before starting your evening. Returning in September and will stay here again.

I have no real complaints about this nice hotel aside from it felt haunted. That's it. Very nice but kindof creepy. The location was great. The people were pleasant and helpful. But the place was still creepy.

Enter into a world of 1909 with solid wood and stained glass ceilings and windows, but yet the room comfort of 2014. This is one of the historic hotels of America. In our fourth floor room was the most comfortable hotel bed we have ever slept in and having arrived in Boulder after flying for 24 hours and being awake... More

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend for a wedding. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Our room was located in the original part of the hotel. It almost seemed like a suite it was so large. It had a small refrigerator and a sink in the room as well as in the bathroom. The room was spotless and... More

We stayed at the Boulderado after being in Crested Butte for July 4th to visit my cousin and family. If you like to stay in historic hotels this one is really special. They were replacing the roof for the first time in 100 years so the valet parking was always changing locations. When we checked in we were treated to... More

We really love this place and have been back a few times over the years. It is an historic hotel and so don't expect all of the modern trappings you may find in some other properties. But it can't be beaten for charm or ambiance. The rooms are nice and clean and have decent bathrooms and a good size tv.... More

We stayed at The Boulderado for 2 nights on the way to a wedding is Este Park. It is a Grand old Hotel. The staff offers a level of politeness and service rarely seen anymore.

We stayed here during a snow storm, which was a good thing, since it is within walking distance to Pearl Street. It is the most ideal spot for restaurants and shopping. The rooms are quite large, and a bit old fashioned, which adds to the ambiance. Really enjoyed our stay here. This is a historic hotel, if you like a... More

I took a room last-minute at this hotel, which had been recommended by local friends. It's a beautiful building which has a lot of charm, until you get to the modern wing. My room was nice, clean, and very large. But the wing itself feels disconnected from the main hotel. I would definitely stay here again, if I could get... More
