“Wonderful Historic Hotel”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

The Boulderado is very comfortable, attractive and conveniently lodated right off Pearl Street in Boulder. It's particularly convenient if you're attending a performance at any of the local venues as you can walk righ back to the hotel. The room was perfect and Q's, the restaurant on the premises was delicious for breakfast.

Stayed in the Boulderado for four nights on business. The hotel is really great - full of character and atmosphere. The decor is classic. The room was excellent - spotlessly clean, huge comfy bed, nice size bathroom and plenty of closet space.
The location is brilliant - right beside Pearl Street and all its magic!
The staff were really friendly and helpful. The valet parking was a great convenient service.
Breakfast in the Q restaurant was really enjoyable & tasty.
The amenities in room could be improved a bit - the lighting wasnt great and the light switches sparked a lot. The air con was also really noisy.

But all in all, a great hotel that I would love to return to.

We attended a wedding in Boulder and stayed at the Boulderado. Great location, within walking distance of Pearl Street Mall. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby. The staff were very accommodating, changed our room so we could see the mountains, always at the entrance to open the door, valet's always had the car for us within a minute or two. Great location, historical building and attentive staff. Would stay again without hesitation!

What a lovely hotel in downtown Boulder. We were there for an event in the hotel and the staff couldn't have been more professional and attentive. The Event Center was perfect for our event and Sam was so accommodating and patient with us all that our event went very smoothly.
The Hotel is beautiful, but also comfy and homey with very lovely touches of antique furniture and a grand staircase. I did get a kick out of the 1906 Otis elevator. Brought back some memories of the old elevators. Our room (5th fl.) had a lovely window facing the Flatirons and just enough room to move around in. The closet was HUGE almost an extra room! That did help getting the suitcases stowed away so we could access them. The decor was lovely and I must say the soundproofing had to be very good as we never heard a peep.
We were well taken care of in the restaurant Q's with bartender Samantha and then the next morning being accommodated with a large rotating group for breakfast. Thank you all for making our visit truly special.
The only down side was the restaurant & bars close too early for guests which forces them to go else where. Too bad there isn't a better way to accommodate the guests of the Hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the mountains!

Thank you for the lovely account of your recent stay. I'm glad that your stay was enjoyable. We love it when our guests comment on the attendant operated Otis elevator. Otis has his own Twitter account, "Boulderado Otis", so you can follow him if you like! We take great pride in the upkeep of our rooms and common areas and have so many antique furnishings to compliment our century old hotel. Q's dining room provides excellent service, and I am glad they were able to accomodate your group with flexibility. We will need to turn Boulder's nightlife up a bit for a later opporunity for you to enjoy our great bars - that is valuable feed back. Please come visit us again soon.

Beautiful historic hotel. However, with added rooms/expansion, sometimes hotel felt like a giant maze. Loved the location near Pearl Street. Restaurant & bar on site very good. Would stay here again. Staff very efficient and courteous.

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay. I'm so pleased you enjoyed the personable service of our staff. Many of our team members have been with us for decades and get great satisfaction by making sure our guests feel that personal touch. With 2 restaurants, 3 bars, and fabulous in-room dining there is no reason to ever leave, except for the fact that Boulder is known as one of the "foodiest" towns West of the Mississippi! Fortunately, most of these restaurants are just steps from our front door. Please come visit us again soon. Perhaps you would like to stay in our Historic Section which is right about the historic lobby. You can request this when you make your reservation.

Lovely old hotel with a great location for waking, shopping, and eating. Room was spacious and clean. Fresh chocolate candy daily. Service was great. My only complaint was that the Internet connection was a bit spotty at times and I would have to reconnect. The staff was also very accommodating when my flight was cancelled and they gave me the room for an extra night at the price I had paid on a travel website, rather than their higher rack rate. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: A bit of a walk over the sky bridge to get to rooms in the east wing.

Thank you for your lovely comments about your recent stay at Hotel Boulderado. I'm so glad we could be of service when you flights were cancelled due to weather. Your observation about our terrific location is shared by many guests. There are so many restaurants, coffee shops, pubs, shops and galleries just within the surrounding 2 blocks........too many to see in one visit. Please come back and stay with us again soon. If you prefer a room in the historic section please mention that when you make a reservation and we will be happy to note your preference.

We stayed in the newer section again and although the rooms are a bit on the smaller side the location and beauty of the hotel are worth it!!!
If you are going to dine downstairs make your reservation early!!!
Best location for visiting Pearl Street!!

Room Tip: We have only ever stayed in the newer section, I am not sure what the older original hotel rooms are...

Thank you for taking the time to share about your recent stay. We are so pleased you enjoyed our fantastic location right in the heart of Boulder. The guest rooms in the new section are varied in size depending on the bedding type you prefer, and this is the case in the historic section as well. If you would like to view other rooms during your next visit our front desk attendant can certainly show you some new options. We can also email some interior photographs prior to your stay. We look forward to welcoming you back soon!
