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

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.

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.

The Hotel Boulderado is one of a kind. As others have commented, it was more expensive than the chain hotels, but I don't know if the location of the less expensive hotels is as convenient. The location is excellent within walking distance of just about everything. The furnishings are all designed to maintain the historic look, but luckily the bathrooms... More

Booked two rooms in the newer annex, one with two queens and the other a king. Both were roomy and comfortable with decor in keeping with the original hotel. Staying in the annex requires a short "skywalk" from the main lobby, not a problem for us but could be for others. Rooms were quiet with all the amenities working well.... More

The staff was generally polite and ready to help. The building is historic and therefore really old and you can see the age! It contains lots of wood and is dark inside. The rooms are ok but for the high price not really great. The one I stayed needed a renovation or remodeling (especially the bathroom). The restaurant is on... More

Thanks for letting us know how your recent stay was! I loved seeing the comment about the polite and helpful staff members, but wanted to let you know that the room rates do not vary based on what floor they are on. We have a mix of six different room types, each with their own rate, and they are interspersed... More
