I love this hotel. The rooms are nice and so are the people. I have stayed here several times over the years. This time I was somewhat disappointed. The bartender was not that great. The showers had mold by the doors and the coffee pot did not work. The place is starting to get tired. Still smells awesome but needs an update

I live locally and received a gift card to the spa. I had been to the hotel for various events and it is very beautiful with wonderful service. It is definitely for a higher end experience but still a little of the down to earth vibe that is Colorado and Boulder. I will admit that I wondered if the spa treatments would live up to the hype or if it would be posh for posh's sake. I can absolutely tell you that if you are looking for a first class class service the St Julien delivers. I have been to spas around the world and this one can definitely compete. The facilities are beautiful, well maintained and constantly checked. The spa is small, so I did find the changing area a bit cramped when there was a party of about 6 other guests present. Not really conducive to lounging and relaxing. However, when they left it was just fine. Use of the small fitness center. Hot tub, lap pool (approx two lanes unmarked), steam room, dry sauna are included. I did take time to partake of them all. My services with Eric were exceptional. He clearly knows what he is doing and is the ultimate professional. I had they High C treatment and a massage. I often get treatments that in some way left me wanting more. Not necessarily a bad service, just something missing. Both of my treatments left me completely content. The $5 valet parking is a very nice touch as well.

You can likely get a fine massage or treatment for less in the area, but if you truly want an exceptional all-around experience, I would definitely recommend the St Julien.

The hotel is in the center of the action in downtown Boulder. We stayed becuase we were attending an event nearby. We were "upgraded" to a mountain view king due to being an I Prefer member. Sadly, the room was cramped with little room between the bed and the armore/TV center. A check of other rooms that were being cleaned revealed that they were all pretty much the same size. The decor was pleasant and modern. The linens were superb as was the bed. The entire hotel was very clean. The bathroom was very spacious and featured a deep soak tub with a seperate shower and a seperate water closet. The toiletries were delightful and fitting for a 4 diamond hotel. Every staff member were encountered gace us a smile and a friendly greeting. Upon checking in the clerk provided all sorts of useful information as it was our first time visiting. We had the bed and breafast package and were suprised to learn that the gratuity for breakfast was not part of the package which was a bit unusual. The breakfast at Jill's was improperly cooked with both entrees which was dissapointing.

Our son goes to CU Boulder, so this location is perfect PLUS it is within walking distance to everything. They have great customer service and the grounds are beautiful. When staying there I highly suggest a King Veranda room. The patio/deck is huge and you get a great view of the Flatiron moutains. You can also see the Gazebo and fountain down below. I like this side best as I once requested a 2 queen suite and was overlooking and intersection with a 4 way stoplight. Alot of the balcony rooms DO face Canyon Street, so make sure you tell them a King Veranda or if you want a Queen, I suggest a terrace view, no balcony, but nice room. The Lobby i very inviting and Jill''s is a great place to have breakfast and dinner. However the best place for Happy hour and tapas, is right next door at "The Med". Unbelievable! We also had dinner at "The Kitchen". Go to the one where you can make reservations. They have "the kitchen next door" and "the kitchen upstairs" (walk-in only), so it kind of gets confusing. Food was excellent! The Flatiron mall not to far for some great shopping, but if you feel like going to Denver, check out Cherry Creek Crossing. Lots to do here. Love this place.
Oh, and by the way, The Ritz Carlton in Bachelor Gulch is to die for (about 1 1/2 hour drive), but that is another review!

Room Tip: King Veranda..trust me :)

Everything about the St. Julien is excellent - rooms, staff, food, location and services. I stayed here on business for a meeting held at the hotel, and it was very pleasant. The St. Julien offers affordable luxury. I'd love to come back here again for a vacation.

Just about everything was top notch. Our 4th floor room was quiet, the bed very comfortable and I appreciated the blackout curtains. We walked to a different restaurant every night - did not dine at the hotel. The bell captain and his staff were exceptional. Our car was always waiting for us no matter how short the notice and the staff was helpful and friendly. The spa has a nice infinity lap pool and well stocked fitness room. They spa was understaffed when I showed up; the front desk couldn't find the concierge to show me to a locker. My only other issue was some of the housekeeping procedures. We had turn down service only on our second nite. The third nite, housekeeping arrived as we were getting ready for dinner and I asked her to comeback a little later. That didn't happen -- and nothing on the first nite. Also, I really like all of the green characteristics of the hotel. I hung my used towel up (per the printed instructions) to use again but it was replaced every day. Overall, we enjoyed our stay very much.
