It breaks my heart to write this because I’ve been staying at the St Julien for years and I love it. That said, it has been steadily going downhill for years now and I pray something is done before the new hotel in Boulder is finished. While the lobby is still top notch, the rooms are degrading quickly. In the 2x I stayed there in May, I found mold all over the bathrooms, rotten wood framing, tired and stained upholstery, and pipes so loud when our neighbors flushed or showered that it woke me up. This is not what I should expect for the premium I’m paying at the St. Julien, but it keeps happening. I reported my findings to the front desk each time and nothing was ever done to clean the rooms. I don’t want to smell mold as I shower! These are pictures from room 240 for example.
Absolutely the standard setter in Boulder, with exceptional rooms, spa, and food. The location can't be beat, near both Flatirons and Pearl Street. The comfort was exceptional, with quiet rooms, great mountain views, and very nice bath and bedding.
Always loved the St. Julian, however the prices are out of control, the staff seem not as helpful as I remember. I guess for the dollars for the room and other services I don't feel the value that was once there is left from years passed. I will definitely try cherry creek or the Broadmoor next time I am looking for a higher-end get away.
I would like to start by saying that I frequent Jill’s and St Julian’s often throughout the many years. My husband made Mother's Day Brunch for 10 of us, our children and 3 grandchildren. We were put into a holding room aka Ballroom. I’m guessing there was an attempt to recover that by having a very very loud band in the center of the room, elevated which created such noise that we could barely have a conversation. And because we were such a large party with children they put us directly behind this band. Remind me to never attend an event like this again. I would think you could do better St Julian’s. Did I mention the overdone omelettes all for a mere price of $900.00. The best thing you had going for you was Philippe’s attire…. Chris and Brenda
Loved everything about the hotel. Pool/hot tub/workout area was excellent. Loved the live music and drinks in the lobby, but the musicians should play later than 9pm. Staff very accommodating. Excellent location, walking distance to many shops and restaurants.
I visited the St. Julien for a weekend away with friends. Our entire stay was top notch, from our initial greeting on the front drive to our final morning as we departed. The hotel’s location is incredible. We walked multiple times to Pearl Street to enjoy drinks and some snacks at some great restaurants! We also spent time each day enjoying drinks in the hotel lobby, including some cozied up by the fireplace. The room was comfortable and clean and the housekeeping staff some of the kindest I’ve encountered. We are already planning our next trip there!
This hotel is really not worth the price. Rooms are shabby. Service is poor. It’s next to a busy highway so if you pay extra for the, “Mountain View” you get the added pleasure of the highway. I really don’t know what the hype is all about.
We stayed at the St Julien the night before and after our wedding. Growing up in Boulder, I had high expectations for this hotel, widely recognized as Boulder’s best luxury hotel. I also work in the travel industry, so I know that hotels of this caliber often go above and beyond to make couples feel extra special for occasions - birthdays, anniversaries, weddings… But despite calling AND putting on our booking that this stay was for our wedding nights, absolutely zero recognition happened from the hotel. After seeing us come downstairs in our suit and wedding dress, the front desk panicked and sent a dried bridal bouquet to our room, which would have been lovely since I didn’t have one, except we didn’t get it until after returning to the room at the end of the day. It was placed on the bed, next to the card we left out asking for our room to be made up. Our room had had zero maid service, so whoever placed the flowers on our bed saw the service request card and ignored it. Was pretty disappointing to come back to an unserviced room after a full day of nuptials. Having stayed in some of the best hotels in the world - Bvlgari, Mandarin Oriental, Aman - I would give the St Julien a 4-Star hotel rank at best. If you choose to pay the 5-star pricing knowing the amenities and services are 4-star, at least you won’t be disappointed.…
It is a nice hotel with friendly and professional staff. We were in their largest suite. The room was quite small for a suite. The bathroom is tiny. Disappointing for sure. The rooms do need to be updated. Breakfast in the restaurant was very good and the staff was friendly. All in all a nice stay but definitely not a 5 star experience.
Stayed for 3 nights in a Mountain View suite-service was excellent,from the valet to the room service staff-beds are super comfortable and the bathroom products are very high end-room service was prompt ;with an excellent selection and prompt service!But the spa was really memorable!Pristine clean,friendly staff,peaceful ambience and the best facial I think I have ever had!Perfect hotel location as fabulous restaurants/coffee shops/bookstores/boutiques are steps away-Highly recommend the St Julien!
