“Great centralized location in Boulder”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

We stayed for 1 night - New Year's Eve and it was the perfect spot to be. It's right in the center of shopping and restaurants - we were able to walk to the Kitchen for dinner and then walked over to the Contemporary Museum of Art for our celebration. Great way to spend the New Year's with no driving or taxis needed! The Spa was clean, typical of a nice spa. We did have the buffet breakfast and they had a good selection of food. My only issue was that the omelet station took a very long time to move thru people, so my friends and I felt you were waiting for what seemed a longer time than normal.

kclovestravel,

Thank you for making St Julien Hotel & Spa your New Year’s Eve destination. I am pleased that you and your party found our central location, Spa at St Julien and New Year’s Day brunch to be agreeable. I suspect that the omelet station was a bit slower than usual due to the high volume of patrons we host during the holiday season, but I apologize for the wait you encountered. We hope to have you as our guest again soon.

Stayed for one night this weekend and loved every aspect of the hotel. The service was superb and our room was very comfortable. They had live music in the lobby on Saturday night and everyone sat around the large fireplace and talked. The pool and the jacuzzi were just the right temperature. All in all one of the great hotels of the world....

Spent a fantastic long weekend here with my best friend and it was perfect! Front desk staff were happy and helpful - pointed us to the best little coffee place (ozo!!) and great eats! The valet guys were super fun and polite. We felt like they took the extra time to talk to us and help with where to go, etc - they treated us like friends! It was busy at times but that is to be expected 12 days out from Christmas!! We are already planning our visit for next December - can't wait to see you all again!!! The spa treatments were also amazing and ZERO PRESSURE TO BUY PRODUCT!!!

We checked into a Junior Suite on the fourth floor on Christmas Eve. The hotel was alive with action, lovely XMAS decorations, and a LOBBY BAR SECOND TO NONE!!!! Naturally, we had to have a drink while looking out at the majestic FLATIRONS ROCK FORMATION at the foot of the mountains. What a view! I really did not want to leave the bar, and it was only about 1 pm!.
The valet bell service was the sharpest I have seen in a large city hotel. They were extra quick in handling our luggage. as my wife travels with many bags. When we finally arrived to our spacious quarters naturally our bags were there. I had to hurray down to make sure I tipped the bell person.
I thought the front desk personal were extra sharp, quick to check us in; and with a big WELCOME TO THE ST JULIEN with a big smile. When do we ever see front desk people SMILE?????
As we got off the elevator on the fourth floor we quickly noticed couches, easy chairs, etc. looking out again to the beautiful mountains through a large window. We had to sit and enjoy this experience before going to our room.

Later in the early evening they had a nice LIVE BAND playing in the lobby area. Naturally we had to sit and order a drink so we could continue having FUN at THE ST JULIEN!!!!

Room Tip: Choose one of the higher floors to allow either a city or mountain view.

As with so many of my reviews this one is tricky because it is a bit mixed.

To start, check in was delightful and the person who helped us was wonderful. She found a room for us on the 4th (top) floor and found us better rates by using AAA —we were staying 6 nights so this helped. In addition, the bell staff, car attendants, bar servers, and virtually all the staff were amazing, helpful and pleasant.

The basic rooms are quite small but nice and totally functional. The windows open, the bed is comfortable and the bathroom, while only having one sink, has a separate tub and glass enclosed shower. The TV while large enough, does not have an over-abundance of channels.

The valet parking is the least expensive parking to be found in Boulder —-albeit still somewhat expensive at $20 a night.

On the downside, the housekeeping staff seemed to be iffy at best —our linens were not changed when that was requested, our coffee was not always replaced, and the room just never seemed totally tidied. But in the context of all that was good about this hotel, it was not a significant issue for us.

One of the nice amenities of the St. Julien is the very large lobby which also serves as a bar and gathering place as the actual bar is quite small. Unfortunately, on several of the days we were there the lobby was used for private functions and the bar was completely jammed with people requiring us to go elsewhere for a drink. One night when we were meeting our friends who live in Boulder, I was able to snag seats just as others left, but that was pure luck. In addition, on at least one of the nights we were there the restaurant was closed for a private party — I’m just glad it was not raining, although it was lightly snowing as we walked to have supper at Oak.

Bunch on Sunday was a very good value. We had great service and a lovely table. Jill’s restaurant is a pretty room and they used it well to set up the buffet. The buffet includes champagne, bloody Mary and mimosa and, while the spread is not quite as varied as it might be, it is more than sufficient with a nice range of eggs, seafood, meat, fruit, sweets etc.

Lastly, the location is terrific enabling us to walk everywhere during our stay. We would definitely recommend the St. Julien and we will return the next time we’re in Boulder.

The location can't be beat: downtown and quiet. We had a top floor corner suite. Two rooms, very comfortable and large. All rooms have 4-poster beds. Bathroom ammenities are good. Breakfast selections (Cali Muffins to Huervos Rancheros to in-house patries) are delicious - a great breakfast not to be missed. The hotel's spa (at least what our room key allowed) has a double hot tub with waterfall and a large pool. The hot tub is temperature hot and going back into the pool is like sauna to lake. Service, front desk and valet, are first class. The hotel hosted a number of parties during our stay, and the revelry was limited to the common area not filtering to the rooms. The balcony in the suite was small. If you want a large balcony over rooms size, go for the terrace rooms. If luxury and comfort are your requirements, this is Boulder's best choice.

Room Tip: If you want a large baclony - terrace room. If you want a large room the suites.
