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 an old-style to them. The newly renovated basement bar has a very clubby atmosphere which works well. I had previously gone to their restaurant for brunch and it was delicious. However, they are in the process of another major overhaul for the outside of the building and the restaurant. Expect a little dust on the near future. The location is terrific in that it is only a couple of blocks from Pearl St., Mall. it is in the heart of the downtown Boulder district which has all sorts of great shops, restaurants, and bars. Great value.
