Our stay at Hotel Boulderado was awesome. The location was perfect for being able to park our car for a few days and see Boulder by foot and bike. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. Every staff member that we encountered was very competent, friendly and polite. Our room was awesome. My only complaint was that the package that... More

We stayed here for a week in room 411 in the historic section. The "modern" wing looked kind of sterile by comparison. Pros: Great location if you like strolling the Pedestrian Mall, a main shopping walk-about for tourists. Enjoyed the street performers immensely. Street parking was easy (bring lots of quarters). We did not use the pricey valet parking. Would... More

The Boulderado is a piece history. For our east coast family members traveling to Colorado for a wedding it was a wonderful way to introduce them to the beauty of the Old West. The rooms in the newer section of the hotel are a little faded, and we paid exorbitant summer prices, but we enjoyed the charm and the location... More

Wonderful customer service, beautiful hotel, But make sure you request the historic section otherwise your paying a bunch of $ to stay in a room that doesn't even rival a $200 room at the Marriott down the street. The location to Pearl St is very convenient. Also check to see if they still has construction its not an inconvenience but... More

This hotel makes you feel like you are in a piece of history. It's well maintained and kept up as good as they can for such an old place. The people are nice and go out of their way to help you. It's perfectly located in Boulder to local areas to eat and shop.

My family spent a night in Boulder and we wanted to be close to Pearl St. The moment you walk in, you get a sense of historical significance. I stayed in suite 321, which is in the building adjacent the lobby. The room was clean and spacious, but nothing overly special. Overall the stay was great, but slightly expensive (location,... More

The hotel is a pleasant property to stay in. The staff are very helpful and accommodating. At the time of our stay it is undergoing renovations to the roof, which necessitates certain rooms being unavailable for lodging. However having said that the room we had 331 was very quiet, albeit without a view of note. This room and those on... More

While traveling through Colorado we decided to spend a night in Boulder so I called the Hotel Boulderado the day before heading to Boulder to make a reservation. I was immediately told that there was scaffolding around the hotel due to construction and I was impressed with their full disclosure. Check in was very easy - even though access was... More

Wow, you're making us blush with this stellar five-star review! I'm delighted to see how much you appreciated our historic charm, the friendly staff, and central location. We hope to see you again at our hotel, but in the meantime you can keep up with our 1906 Otis elevator on Twtter as @BoulderadoOtis. Until next time! More

It was in the middle of some facility work but access was slightly impaired and parking was a challenge but it was worth the troubles. Nice historical property that has been modernized without changing history. Room was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The elevator is a hoot. Great location with easy walking access to downtown and... More

Thank you so much for your five-star review! I'm delighted to see that even though you stayed with us during some renovations it didn't impact your overall impression of our property. The 1906 Otis elevator is such a hoot that he has his own Twitter account, and you can follow him @BoulderadoOtis. More

When does quaintness spill over into kitsch? About the moment you walk through the doors into this surprisingly dark and rather tired and dreary hotel lobby. It looked like a set for a B-grade horror movie, to be honest. I had read somewhere that the rooms were all supposed to be individually decorated, but that must have been a loooooong... More

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your recent stay at the Boulderado. It's true that all of our guest rooms are individually decorated so that no two rooms here are exactly the same.
