“We keep coming back and usually wonder why.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

It must be the location and overall historical coolness of the courtyard and the lobby. We've been coming here for 20 years. This years room was shabby, the towels shredded, no coffee pot or hair dryer. So glad I brought my own. Will I return? Maybe.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your honest input. We have all new linens in the Hotel and you definitely should not have had a towel that was shredded. I will speak with the Housekeeping department and make sure that damaged towels are discarded.

This hotel is amazing. As a historic hotel, they provided a nice stay. The hotel was clean, staff was kind and food was great. We've been there before and will go back again. We stayed in the King Parlor and it was beautiful.

We were expecting a nice stay at the Hotel Colorado. Unfortunately, this is not the place to stay in the summer. The main level was hot and musty smelling upon check in. We were given a room on the fourth floor (the top floor, excluding the "pent house"). While I didn't have a thermometer, I can say that the fourth floor must have been hovering around 90 degrees and had no air movement.

We entered our room and the window was open and had a fan. The screen was falling out of the window and had been tinkered with several times in the past without being able to properly secure it. The beds were quite old and had developed big bowls in the center from the years of guests sleeping on them. The bathroom was a good size. The toilet seat was in bad shape (didn't realize that could be possible) and the shower was less than desirable. The fourth floor and our room along with the heat made me feel very much like we were in prison, only we were paying good money to be there. I immediately started calling other hotels in the area but everything in the area was booked solid that night.

This experience was laughable. I can't speak for the whole building but from what we experienced, it was quite run down and incredibly hot. It was interesting to hear the other guests arriving on the same floor and hearing them also complain out loud at the condition of the rooms and the intense heat. The common consensus heard among the guests on our floor was "it's just one night. We'll make it through."

We stayed just one night and we did make it through but keep in mind, this was part of our vacation and it certainly took away from the fun we were having up until our arrival. I felt the need to share this so that other potential guests could at least be informed of the conditions and will then have the appropriate expectations prior to arrival. The other part of our vacation included several nights in Crested Butte at the Elevation Hotel & Spa. CB is an awesome town and the hotel was excellent all around.

Room Tip: To find a good room, look elsewhere

Dear Guest,

I apologize that you did not enjoy your stay. As a historic hotel without A/C we understand that there are some summer nights that can be very hot. Normally the evenings cool off in the mountain climate but we have had some very hot weeks on the Western slopes of Colorado.

Really enjoyed our stay. Great service and a terrific dinner on the patio. A wonderful, historic place. But please stay away if you demand the sameness of chain hotels. The lack of air conditioning here was a non issue for us...an open window and stout overhead fan kept us quite comfortable.

I want to thank Paul, the Beverage Service Manager for our wonderful bottle of champagne in recognition of our wedding. We had an afternoon wedding then drove to Glenwood Springs. We didn't arrive until late. We sat outside and had a wonderful meal and then received a gift of champagne! Thank you for recognizing our wonderful day.

Room Tip: Because there is no air conditioning I would recommend a room facing north in the summertime. There...

My boyfriend and I went on a 2 day getaway to Glenwood Springs. On the morning of our trip to the Hot Springs pool we decided to stop by the Legends coffee shop, located in the Hotel Colorado, based on the recommendation of the hotel clerk we were staying at (not the Hotel Colorado). When we entered the shop there was one customer being helped. The barista and he were engaged in a conversation that went on for some time. We waited for about 10 minutes. In this time the barista never acknowledged or greeted us, she just continued her conversation, in her british sounding accent, with the current customer. A few more people came in at this point, giving us hope that this might prompt her to be more efficient in providing us service and some much needed coffee. Then the wife of the current customer comes in and walks to the front desk and gives her order of an "iced americana" to which the barista promptly begins preparing for her. Needless to say, we left in disgust and with no coffee.

Dear Guest,

I am sorry that you were not recognized immediately. I will address this issue with her so that it may not happen again. She is normally known for great customer service but fell obviously short of that on that day.

I realize this hotel is located in Colorado and it is a very old and historic hotel; however, when the outside temperatures are in the upper 90's and you have no A/C, it makes for a miserable night trying to sleep with only a box fan moving the hot air around! In addition, the hotel has a musty unclean smell and he housekeeping is subpar at best. During our stay, a water pipe broke resulting in no water for showering, etc. - it was fixed fairly quickly but not in time for us! There was no compensation offered! I would not stay here in the future unless major renovations occurred!
