We stayed at this hotel with friends when in town for a football game. (Actually the guys went to the game, the wives went next door to the spa!) We have stayed here several times. It's a nice, special getaway when we're able to leave the kids with the grandparents. We stayed in a king room in the southwest corner, 4th floor of the historic section of the hotel. This room is beautiful, well appointed, quiet, and has great views. Our friends stayed in the Southeast corner and did have a lot of noise coming up from outside the catacombs bar at night. We had appies and drinks in the corner bar. We like the good food and casual atmosphere there. The hotel has a great location, a block off the Pearl Street Mall. There are many, many, good restaurants within walking distance. The hotel doesn't have a pool, hot tub, or spa. We went to Mariana's spa next door and had wonderful massages and wraps. We went to catacombs for a drink one night. Wow has this place has really changed a lot in the past 20 years (mainly for the worse.) We were told that Catacombs was going to be re-done in the near future. My one complaint was having to walk through a cloud of cigarette smoke going into/out of the hotel at night, from the Catacombs crowd. That aside, the hotel is still one of our favorites. We thoroughly enjoy the classy, well kept historic section, along with the attentive staff. We will be back.

Attended the annual celebration at the Boulderado - this year was a james Bond Theme. Well put together, great time, entertainment and meal were amazing. I will return next year for whatever theme the hotel dreams up.

Great location, staff and food. Built in the early 1900's with old world charm. Stayed in early summer and wanted to visit for Christmas. Will try to make it a yearly visit. Ski resorts nearby. Shopping and restaurants on Pearl street are some of the best in Colorado.

Stayed here on a quick Christmas trip with my teenage kids. Perfect. The staff was amazing. The hotel is so neat that you must stay here and enjoy a step back into time. Thinking about the people who have graced this property is mind boggling. Perfect hotel - 1st class.

Stayed here for two nights whilst on a business trip to Colorado early in December. The bar was staffed by some very friendly and knowledgeable staff who kept a wide range of very good local beers.
The hotel is made up of two parts the old hotel which is full of charm and the new which can best be described as a chain hotel with dark furniture, trying to be old, and a long walk from reception. The room I had whilst clean was smaller than your average UK travel lodge.

So if you are looking for a hotel with a great location, good beer and friendly staff this is it, just try and get a room in the old part.

Room Tip: Try the old part of the hotel the reviews suggest these are the better rooms

This is by far one of the nicest hotels we ever stayed in. Very clean, staff is nice. its right by all the action. We had breakfast at the restaurant there, Q's and it was very good. Everything at the Boulderado is top notch. Comfortable beds. Beautiful woodwork. Cathedral like ceilings. Very quiet room.

The Boulderado exceeded my expectations at every turn. We stayed at the hotel for a full 24 hrs to attend a corporate event. I was very happy with the reception, 100+ privite dinner and the great retaurant for enjoying breakfast and conversation.

There seemed to be plenty of nearby city parking but the Valet was still worth the extra $10 per day because the attendant were great guys. The check in process was expediant and professional, every member of the hotel staff was exceptional.

The hotel itself is filled with charm, I didn't much differnece between the new and original sections of the hotel. I stayed in the new wing and my room was spacious with a comfortable bed and bathroom, good coffee too.
