“Fascinating information, terrific guide!”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

While wandering the shops, we came upon the Hotel de Paris Museum and paid $3. each (AAA rate) for the 45 minute tour. The guide was so interesting and answered every question. The building, furnishings, photos, rugs etc. were almost all originals. It was the first hotel with "indoor amenities" between Chicago and California. I am a Colorado native but still learned so many new things, and my friends are Canadian and found the mining history and the whole experience to be a highlight of our weekend. I will certainly take other friends and family back to the museum.

“Parents enjoyed it more than the kids”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 via mobile

We had an informative tour of the Hotel. It was amazing how well preserved it is -- even with original magazines and books from the 1st owner. The kids were somewhat interested, but did not like the cellar. I thought that was a little creepy too. Overall, a good tour, priced nicely for families. They offer a AAA discount too.

“Unusual place with so many original items”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

Stumbled onto this by accident and took the 45-minute tour. Beautiful old relic of a hotel, including odd items like :"desk beds" and original flooring and carpets, plus the framed prints in the same location where the owner hung them so long ago.
Wish we had more time to explore the cute downtown, too.

“An Unexpected Surprise”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

We stumbled across this one and were very happy we did. It is at the upper end of town and fascinating. The hotel is mostly original decorations from over 100 years ago. If you have the time, I recommend it.

“Nothing Extraordinary but Worth Your Time”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

A very cool hotel in the heart of Georgetown built and managed by a Frenchman way back in the mining days. There is a brief but interesting tour of the facility, including the kitchen which still stocks cans of condiments well known to us today. (where else can you find cans with the name of Heinz's with an apostrophe? S.
