“Old world charm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

I grew up in Boulder and the Boulderado was one of the upscale, big party or wedding places that I had never given much thought too. Now I come to Boulder as a visitor, and have stayed in several places. My wife and I have tried both of the downtown Boulder Hotels. I prefer the Boulderado. It is not all shiney and new, it takes you back to the early 1900's, it has character that the newer hotels lack. It is a great location, easy walking to the Pearl St mall, the park, and other Boulder highlights. The service is wonderful. The Boulderado is on my list of places I'd like to stay again.

We absolutely loved the taste of Boulder supplied by the Boulderado, you couldn't be better located. The rooms and service were great, nice pub and restaurant on site and plenty more within a 2 block walk on the Pearl Street Mall. Within walking distance to REI, Whole Foods and more, and a reasonable drive to Red Rocks for entertainment. And only one block to the Boulder Theatre. The Valet parking is the only way to go with parking being at a premium in the Downtown area, it's reasonably priced and they are very helpful, as long as you can disregard the snide attitude of the guy in charge in the black suit. Definitely in need of some soft skills. Overall, I loved this place and will never stay anywhere else again when I am in the area!!

Room Tip: Ask for a mountain view.

I've stayed at the Boulderado a few times for work over the year. I've stayed in the main building twice and in the guest house once. I feel as if over the years the service at this hotel has decreased. We had left something in the car (which we valeted), and rather than bringing the car around or allowing us to go to the car, the valet attendant went to check the car and claimed he couldn't find the wallet. My colleague pushed the issue,went to the car and was able to find the wallet exactly where he left it.

The a/c in the guest house is quite loud, yet without it, the room is stuffy. I like the charm of the lobby, but that's not enough for me.

The Boulderado exceeded my expectations! We stayed in one of the rooms in the north wing (newer rooms) and it was extremely nice and well appointed. The staff was very attentive and the food in the restaurant was delicious and reasonably priced. The location was outstanding because the hotel is only a couple of blocks from the Pearl Street pedestrian mall and other downtown venues so it provides easy access to many wonderful shops, restaurants and entertainment choices all within walking distance of the hotel. If you're visiting Boulder, this is the place to stay.

We have had two weddings at the Boulderado; one of which was simply the reception. At both events, the staff, the food, in fact the hotel itself seemed a part of making the day. We ourselves stayed there, in one of the historic rooms ( now there are also modern rooms to choose from ) . although we were locals living only one mile away. We took total pleasure in the sense of pride that was apparent in the staff as they made things come together smoothly. The location in the heart of downtown made for an interesting extra gift; several guests still come back to celebrate their weekend, and the nearness to all of the action going on in town. This hotel has it all. Great food, wonderful decor, knowledgeable and concerned staff, and a wonderful place to stay when in Boulder

Room Tip: There are a couple of corner rooms on the outside of the old section that have historic value, altho...

The decor, service, and amenities are all first rate. This is where my daughter decided to have her wedding reception. The facilities were great. The guests raved about the food and facility.I can say that at times I felt like we were at The Broadmoor, and that is a LOFTY place to be. The restaurants were also exceptional. If in Boulder enjoy this place.

I planned a surprise 50th anniversary party for my parents from 2000 miles away. The extremely warm, helpful and knowledgable staff made this task a breeze. The staff had amazing attention to detail, and at all times I knew who was in charge if I needed anything. All the i's were dotted and the t's were crossed and the venue was warm and beautiful. If I could do it all over again, I would have saved myself some time by not calling all restaurants in the area. There was no need. The Boulderado did a fabulous job!
