We attended a wedding at the St Julien recently, staying two nights in the hotel. From the moment we entered we knew we were in for a special time. The staff immediately identified us by name, check in was flawless (we were upgraded), and the bell staff couldn't have been more accomodating with our car and delivering our things to our room.
First of all, you have to understand, this hotel is absolutely beautiful. it is new, it is luxurious, and it is gorgeous. The lobby is wonderfully comfortable with flower arrangements, stylish and comfortable furniture, music in the evenings, and adjacent to the intimate bar and excellent restaurant. The lobby opens onto the gardens from which one looks up to the Rockies and the iconic Flatirons looming over Boulder.
The hotel is located one block off the spectacular Pearl St. mall, restaurant and shopping mecca - the ulitmate Boulder experience and the best people watching this side of Paris.
My wife and i enjoyed some spa treatments in the very posh spa. There is an indoor pool and hot tub, open to the mountain views, and available to the guests for free, plus a state of the art exercise facility. But we felt like being spoiled so spent some money on massages and facials - wow, expensive but worth it.
if you need a bike (it is Boulder after all) they will get you one, if you need hiking maps no problem. Just ask and the concierge will book you into any one of the many great nearby restaurants (Boulder is a foodie town, and a good one).
The rooms are spacious, newly decorated, and lavishly appointed with top line music, flat screens, etc. Bathrooms alone are worth the stay, and scupulously clean.
We could not have asked for a more luxurious and accomodating hotel and staff. If you want the best in Boulder, and one of Colorado's very best, this is the place for you. We can't wait to return - and we only live an hour away; it's that good.
