“Truly an excellent hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Back recently from our trip, this is one I wanted to review - then I noticed the most recent review criticising it - but they stayed there in 2012! We stayed there 12 days ago...
This hotel is gorgeous - very luxurious. The room has great bedding, lighting, masses of hanging and drawer space. The bathroom has a fabulous shower and toiletries, with a lot of space. WiFi strong signal, free. Good coffee free in room and free water as well. Lengthy happy hour(s) in nice bar. Really great staff - friendly and helpful with ideas for what to do in Boulder. A late checkout happily provided for us. A really excellent hotel in a good central location within easy walking distance of restaurants and shops etc.

Most of the staff was over friendly and helpful. The checkin, valet and concierge were wonderful. The location of the hotel is great and you can walk to shopping and restaurants easily from the hotel. We didn't notice any other hotel options in the area. The King room we were given seemed a bit small, but had enough room for a chair and desk. Our balcony overlooked the valet and front entrance of hotel so not such a relaxing spot. The room has a cork board wall which is very unique, but I'm guessing it has a purpose as a sound barrier between rooms. My biggest issues with this hotel all go back to housekeeping. The sheets on our bed had some tears, the shower was covered in mold and the service was lacking. We were out of our room from 7:30am until 3:15pm and no one had serviced our room. At 4pm, as we were showering, the housekeeper shows up. We asked her to return in 30 mins so we could finish showering but she said her shift ends and she cannot service our room unless it was now. This was quite disappointing, especially because we were hoping to get the mold issue resolved. We checked out a day early and doubt we will return. I hope management takes a look at the dirty moldy showers and stocks up on some Tilex. Housekeeping's time management is an easy fix too.

Staff shared secrets of the inner workings of the hotel.. No wonder they had no hot water during our stay. I guess it's just falling apart behind its wall sadly.
Service was that of a sophomore college student.. Not experienced in high end hotel lodging, guest needs.
We will not be staying in Boulder again. Thank you the Four Seasons in Denver!

We have been staying at the St Julien for what is now 7 years. This makes it our most visited from a large list of hotels. It is everything we want in a Boutique hotel stay. Nicely appointed rooms, fun atmosphere and friendly, hospitable staff.

We have never had a bad stay. The caliber of the accommodations and service had never wavered. Even when something is not right, they go out of their way to make it so.

Kudos to the management for maintaining a high standard.

Stayed here for four nights while attending a conference. Nice hotel with largish rooms, stone bathrooms, and very comfortable beds. One block from Pearl St, which has a large assortment of restaurants and shops. Service was very good, and value was excellent, although we did get a conference rate. I stayed here for business but if I come back for a vacation with my wife this is where I will stay.

Absolutely beautiful spot near Pearl Street mall. I felt refreshed and recharged after two nights. Near great restaurants and Boulder Creek trail. Great friendly staff, well appointed rooms, excellent fitness facilities, and great restaurant. Spa looks very good as well. I'll give that a try on my next visit here.

By far the best accommodations in Boulder- luxurious, clean, beautiful decor, great food and tasteful use of lobby/dining space. We stayed in Boulder for three nights and enjoyed every moment at the St. Julian. The staff is extremely professional and demonstrate the best customer service you could ask for. There is absolutely no other hotel I would recommend!

For a spa experience, you can expect quality locker rooms, showers, sauna, and an excellent steam room. While waiting for treatment, the spa lobby is comfortable, spacious and opens to the pool and jacuzzi. The couples massage is delightful and includes champagne afterwards to perpetuate your relaxation...

One major recommendation is to borrow the complimentary cruiser bikes available outside the front door. The location of the St. Julian allows for an easy ride down the Boulder Creek Path, quick cruises to nearby parks, and of course a fast pedal over to numerous restaurants and shops on Pearl St.

If you are looking for the best quality of hotel in Boulder there simply is no other choice than the St. Julian.

Providing an exceptional experience for our guests is always our primary goal – I'm pleased that you enjoyed every moment of your stay at St Julien and had time to take out our complimentary cruiser bikes to explore Boulder, enjoy a spa treatment at our acclaimed Spa at St Julien and enjoy our food and beverage menu.
