...has a nice ring to it, and the hotel is pretty nice as well! I ended up paying for a corner executive suite, gorgeous view of the Rockies outside of town, French Provincial furniture, wrought iron bed, top floor (4th) of the new wing, all for $189. A bit much for a single business traveler, but I registered late. Very nicely appointed, would be a good place for those in a romantic mood. Robes were nice, the jacuzzi tub was a bit of a joke--don't pay extra just to get that. Very comfy bed, room was pretty quiet depite being above two busy streets. The Wi-Fi worked well, but was a bit clunky, had to keep re-entering your info, plus when I was downloading large files from my email, a message appeared that my download speed was being cut to 56K because it appeared that I was downloading questionable (i.e. big?) files---really, I swear they were only Powerpoint presentations! Didn't try room service, but the attached restaurant was good, nice atmosphere. Wonderful old lobby, and they've done a nice job making the new addition seem traditional. I'd definitely come back here w my wife. I was in room 1044.

I think this hotel is RICH in history, antiques and ambience. The almost 100 year old elevator is a thrill in and of itself. I remember as a child in the 60's riding similar elevators. The room I stayed in was in the historic section and was small, but comfortable. I felt like I was in someone's home and not a hotel. The service staff was mixed. Everyone was nice, per se, it's just that some of the staff was a little 'rough' around the edges. Given that Boulder is a VERY laid back environment, that could be why. I do think that a little more enthusiasm at these prices would be appreciated by the guests. I ate at Q's & the Corner Bar, and the service at both places was phenomenal. They were VERY accomodating. I also did one morning of room service. They forgot silverware, which is crazy in my opnion. Overall experience however, was very good! I'd go back!

A wonderful old historic hotel (check out the beautiful glass ceiling) in downtown Boulder. The rooms are decorated in period style in the older, main building. The rooms in the annex have more of a motel feel. A friend has been visited by ghosts. She just told them to go away and off they went! Check with the front desk as to which rooms are haunted.

Q's is a wonderful restaurant for breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner. The corner bar is popular with locals and a fun place to meet.

The zip code is 80302 NOT 60302.

Our family stayed in three rooms for 5 nights during the Christmas Holidays at the Boulderado. We enjoyed the proximity to the downtown area, the Hotel Restaurants, and the holiday decorations at the Hotel. However, after spending over $3500 for lodging and being treated as if the staff was doing us a favor by letting us reside in their space, we decided that the hospitality at the Hotel was a major disappointment. We would not recommend the Boulderado Hotel to anyone wanting to be accommodated with, at the very least, civility and, at the most, graciousness.
