If you visit Boulder a stay at the Boulderado is a must. A great restaurant and two bars are available right in the lobby. In this stay I had one of the newer rooms in the new section and had a nice view of the surrounding neighborhood. Don't miss a ride in the antique elevator. We could walk to all... More

We stayed here for a wedding weekend with many other wedding guests. The hotel's quaint, covered-in-scaffolding charm quickly soured when they called us at 11:00am on our first morning, requesting we leave the room and check out since our reservation had only been for one night. After freaking out and some intense self reflection (Was I REALLY dumb enough to... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the annex of the Boulderado. The room had a complete loving room with a lot of space and a separate bedroom with a comfortable bed. The ambiance is a combination of quaint and nice. The lobby makes me feel like it once had gunslingers parading through it. This is my 3 rd visit and... More

We loved this hotel, loved the impeccable restoration and it's rambling hallways. Our room was on the small side but very comfortable with flawless wifi. A largish bathroom added the modern touch. The location can't be beat. We enjoyed the restaurants at the hotel in spite of many many choices steps away. The scaffolding was unsightly and I look forward... More

Thank you so much for the great review! I'm glad the scaffolding and renovation process we are currently undergoing did not impact your stay with us, and that you enjoyed the modern touches (WiFi, bathroom size) coupled with our historic property. We hope to see you back at the Boulderado in the future so you can see the building in... More

Clean, the beds make you never want to get up. The basement bars make you feel like you are living the life of years ago. Music is nice as you sit and have a drink. The old time elevator is so neat. The location and service is super. We really enjoyed our stay. A little expensive but worth it.

From the moment we pulled up to the front door, everyone was just so nice. The valets, the bellman, the front desk ladies, the waitresses, the bartenders, all just treated you in such a happy way that you were glad to be there. It is an old hotel. However, the rooms were nice and clean and updated. They did have... More

Price aside... Why, really, would you stay anywhere else? This place IS Boulder, pure and simple. One block from Pearl St., at the very heart of the city. It is also, really, a very fine hotel, with impeccable service. The valet will be calling you by name the second time he sees you. But back to my original point: when... More

Beautiful and very comfortable historic hotel. Sylvia at the front desk was extremely helpful and professional as were all the staff we interacted with. Room was large and very comfortable. Centrally located near the Pearl St Mall and downtown walking area.

Centrally located downtown. Would stay here again. Staff were particularly helpful and pleasant. They are doing renos currently which will like only make it better. Rooms were well appointed and clean. They were also bike friendly and did not mind me tramping my bike back and forth to my room.

Thank you for leaving us such a positive review, Eric! I'm delighted to see you'd stay with us again, despite the fact that you stayed with us during a historic renovation on our roof. We hope to see you (and your bike!) back at the Boulderado again in the future. More

This is THE place to stay when you are visiting Boulder. Historic from the point of being around since 1909. Absolutely gorgeous. From today's viewpoint, right in the middle of the action. BTW, the BEST Bloody Mary, anywhere. Seriously should enter a nationwide competition. Within steps of everything you would want to do or see in Boulder. Quite simply, fantastic.
