Quaint, cosy, and charming with a friendly hotel staff located in the heart of the historic district of downtown Boulder! You can see the foothills of the Rockies from your romm window. Easy walking distance to everything!

It is authentically preserved and has such an old world feel about it, not a re-branded or refinished place. Authentic. The layout, the old elevator, the bubbler, every where we turned was some informative piece of history. The rooms are truly spacious and finished as they may have been back then...it is one of the highest qualities for the price... More

We had been to Boulder on several occasions, but somehow missed Hotel Boulderado. Words fail to describe the friendliness of the staff. The hotel, from lobby to our quaint, well-appointed room, exuded historical charm. The hotel is only a block from the Pearl Street Mall and a very short walk to The Boulder Theater. The attached Corner Bar was fabulous... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the Boulderado and found it to be quite charming, staff could not have been more professionaland nice and our room, we did have the "elegant suite" was just perfect.

This is a grand and beautifully restored hotel. From the expansive staircase, marble floors, intricate framed botanical lithographs lining all the walls of every floor, the live orchids and tropical palms, antiques, paintings, stained glass, suspended ceiling-this is an amazing spectacle to behold. I can only imagine its grandeur when it was first built. We stayed in suite room 318-319,... More

Great location, very expensive. Rather convoluted approach to our hotel room which was in a newer appearing wing of the building which was disappointing as I was hoping to experience some of the older architecture. Really average but gave it an extra star for location.

This hotel is an historic facility, updated in 1989 to meet then-current codes. Rooms are nicely appointed, although the "north wing" is a rabbit warren of hallways to get from the bridge connecting to the main hotel to the expansion wing. Service is very friendly and helpful, with check-in and -out easy. The concierge is especially helpful. We were in... More

Beautiful hotel from 1908. Original elevator still in use. Rooms are noisy with all of the activity on Pearl Street one block over. The close proximity to Pearl Street is also an advantage if that's what you're looking for.They could use an upgrade to the single-pane windows and the heating system. Our room was cold, even with the thermostat set... More
