I have given Hotel Boulderado an excellent rating because from the moment of my entering its grounds to my departure, I was treated so well by every Boulderado staff person...from the valet who parked my car, to the registration desk staff at check in and check out, to the waiter and waitress at the fine restaurant, to the chef's very good cuisine, to the bartender, to housekeeping for an immaculate room...it was snowing heavily (it was April!) when I arrived and, frankly, wasn't in the mood for the cold and snow but because of the Boulderado staff and the well preserved and beautiful historical hotel, I suddenly got the feeling of "Christmas spirit". I hope to return someday and I hope you too can experience the "Boulderado spirit" soon.

We stayed at the Boulderado because it is centrally located and looked like a neat, historic hotel. It is historic. The lobby is beautiful. But when we checked in, we walked, and walked and walked...to the "new" part of the Boulderado. They have made it look "old" but obviously it is not! The hotel room was spacious and clean. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom very clean also. They threw in some Victorian styled furniture to add to the antique look. For how much money the room cost, we thought it was average. We were expecting a little more. The pictures on the website do not reflect the new part of the hotel.

The staff was friendly and helpful and it was nice to be able to walk out the door and explore Boulder on foot. If you are planning to stay at this historic hotel for the purpose of experiencing history, make sure you mention you want to be the old part of the building. We felt that for how much the room cost, $12 to valet the car each night seemed ridiculous. A fine experience, but would not stay there again.

This is a great historic hotel that is in great condition. The staff was very friendly and helpful in making reservations for a large party. The location is great...a block off of the Pearl Street pedestrian area. The rated seemed a little high for the area, but my stay was great.

Stayed at Boulderado for CU admitted student day 4/5 & 4/6. Great location to center of Boulder inlcuding Pearl Street with tons of great restaurants, shops, etc. About a mile walk to campus which wasn't bad. There are closer hotels to campus but we wanted to be near Pearl Street as well. Hotel has a lot of character! Room was a nice size, clean, with large bathroon. Worth noting we were in the west wing which required a short walk through the "skywalk" from main building. Hotel staff was excellent! We felt very welcomed. Would definately stay here again.

When staying in Boulder, it would be hard to beat the experience at the Hotel Boulderado. The hotel is adorned with gorgeous antiques and an old elevator that is manually operated by the staff. The hotel's location is right in the heart of Boulder, near the Pearl Street Mall -- which has lots of options for shopping, dining -- all with the backdrop of the Rocky Mountains just to the West.

The room was spotless, the beds were comfortable, and the location was amazing. Very happy with the stay and highly recommend to everyone!

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.
