What it is - an historic hotel right in downtown Steamboat. Very convenient location. Walking distance to may shops and restaurants, the Yampa trail, bike rental shop, and the like. Because it is an older hotel, the rooms are small, as expected and noted in other reviews, but we had the room with the King-size bed and it was close... More

Thank you for the review and thoughts, as we greatly appreciate your comments. The King Room was developed based on past guest comments. We use to marry two single beds together with the industry standard "bridge", but we have found that our guest prefer a true King Bed. We also installed a mini fridge in the room to augment the...

We stayed for 5 nights and couldn't have asked for better. Yes, the rooms are small but we expected that since the hotel is vintage. If we had wanted modern we would have stayed at one of the many newer or chain hotels in the area. We were looking for ambience and character and we certainly found it! So conveniently... More

Overall and excellent place to stay. Close walk to many restaurants and shops. The staff was helpful with recommendations. The perfect summer stay- all activities at your fingertips. Quaint & adorable. Small rooms but very clean. We will most certainly be back

Thank you for your review and comments. The main attributes of Hotel Bristol are its staff, its quaintness and its location. With being centrally located in the heart of Downtown Steamboat Springs, that does come with some of the inner worrkings of the City. The carpets in all of the guest rooms, as well as the carpet behind the front... More

We stayed at Hotel Bristol for two nights while visiting Steamboat Springs. The positives are that it is conveniently located right in the heart of downtown and has a restaurant that is highly rated in Trip Advisor. The staff at the front desk were very pleasant and there was coffee and tea every morning. The negatives are that there are... More

There's parking a few feet from the door, a big hot tub over looking Lincoln Ave., ( the main street), it's downtown so all the restaurants and bars are close, the rooms are just right size for one or two riders and their gear and the beds are very comfortable. The hotel is small and old style but very nicely... More

Small hotel in the heart of Steamboat springs. We were there in summer around July 4th. Walk outside the hotel and view the holiday parade. Rooms are somewhat small as it's an older property, but they're decorated nicely. Our room was darker than it needed to be due to double black-out window coverings - they could lose one set and...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for Hotel Bristol, we greatly appreciate your time. As to the shades, we purposely selected this shade arrangement, as some guest like to sleep in and prefer the option of darkening the room. The "top down/bottom up black out blinds provides the option to have as much or as little... More

Beds have those terrible soft, shapeless, grandma mattresses that I thought hotels everywhere discarded long time ago. Otherwise it's a small no frills hotel, centrally located in the old town, clean, and with friendly staff.

Thank you for writing a review for Hotel Bristol as we greatly appreciate all comments. While pillow & matress firmness is a matter of personal preference, I apologize that you found our bedding to be uncomfortable, but the mattresses are barely one (1) year old. We use a Serta Platinum Pillowtop mattress that many guest find very comfortable, but again,... More

I stayed at the Bristol with a friend for a ski trip. The location is perfect, walking distance to anything downtown. Great restaurants and shops all around, off street parking too.

We had a very pleasant stay at the Hotel Bristol and wished we could have stayed longer. The hotel has the modern amenities (Wi-Fi, hot tub, etc.) yet has kept its unique character different from the usual chain. It has all the important basics including comfortable beds, efficient heat and cooling, and cleanliness. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful... More
