“Colorado ski vacation”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

We used the Hotel Colorado as our home base to ski Vail, Snowmass, Aspen, and Sunlight. The location was only 15 minutes to Sunlight, 1 hour each way to Vail and Snowmass/Aspen. At night we ate in many nice restaurants in Glenwoood Springs, as well as enjoyed the Springs and the Vapor Caves. The location was great, the rooms, while not luxurious, were clean and comfortable, and my three kids and myself were able to stay at a very affordable price. The staff was very friendly and helpful. For the price, it cannot be beat.

As you mentioned the Hotel Colorado and Glenwood Springs is a tremendous value for Ski vacations. Nestled in between the very expensive Aspen and Vail it offers our guest some great options. We're happy you and your family enjoyed your stay with us.

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel as always. We had company with us from Minneapolis and they enjoyed it too. The rooms are old of course but updated, nicely decorated, no 2 the same and very nice. Loved being able to open the windows to the fresh mountain air and loved looking out into the square towards the pools. The lobby is beautiful and we were fortunate to get to hear live music in the lobby both days we were there. We love staying there and being able to walk to the pool and downtown. We have several favorite restaurants within walking distance also. The staff is very professional and friendly and the price was reasonable.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on an upper level over looking the court yard.

The Hotel Colorado is our favorite place to stay in Glenwood for many reasons. Its proximity to the pool [across the street] and walking bridge to town make it incredibly convenient. The history alone makes it a fascinating place to stay with photos of Teddy Roosevelt all over the place and the opportunity to even stay in the suite Teddy stayed in when he passed through via train and gave a speech from the balcony of the suite to people assembled in the hotel courtyard. We stayed next door in room 225 and loved it. We had 3 rooms with a full kitchen, king bed and living room for a nominal price. All the conveniences of ultra modern cookie cutter hotels and motels, no, but we don't care. They don't have room safes so I would lock up my purse and valuables in the car when we left and take it back to the room when we were in for the night. Was this necessary? Don't know but I'm not a very trusting soul and feel more comfortable with valuables locked up. [I have to say that in the 40 years I've been coming here I have never had one item missing and I've had expensive shoes, cosmetics and items with tags on them just purchased in the room]. There's an energy that's very calming here and we always leave this place very relaxed. The front desk clerk Art is ALWAYS accommodating and we have dealt with him for many years. He'll go out of his way to make sure you get a room you're happy with and we so appreciate him. Jesse, also, at the front desk was amazing and truly went out of his way for us as well.

The food in the restaurants is very good and we ate there three times one of the times being Easter for their brunch and it was terrific as was our server Lane who couldn't do enough to please us. She worked at the Hotel Jerome in Aspen and it showed...a real pro.

Give this place a try and see for yourself if it's your style. It sure is ours.

Room Tip: Stay in room 225 or 405 which are parlor kings [the former having a full kitchen] or if you want to...

Grand style architecture, wide hallways, immense lobby with fireplaces and 1890s feel. Well appointed with engaged staff. Located to visit the hot springs. Arrived and departed by train with free shuttle. Good restaurant and bar. Very comfortable. Only they are too religious: they place an open bible on the table in every room. This seems like proselytizing and pushy to me which is very unwelcome in a hospitality vendor. Very inappropriate and unwanted. I requested a religion-free room. No Bibles please.

Love the Hotel Colorado! Great location for families--especially families with dogs. The staff is welcoming and the rooms are a great value, even for our family of five. With 3 teens, we reserved two rooms with a jack-and-jill style bath. It was perfect and affordable. Despite the furry friends, our rooms were clean and spacious. However, be ready for very small bathrooms due to the historic nature of the building. You can walk straight downtown or to the hot springs pool. If you have room, bring your own towels. You'll feel like you stepped back in time. Not deluxe, but very cozy and charming. A terrific value. One suggestion--add decaf to the coffee shop.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south overlook the hot springs and a beautiful courtyard.

My husband and I have stayed at Hotel Colorado several times in the past few years, including during our honeymoon! We stayed in suites and standard rooms and have loved it each time. It is truly a unique experience to stay in such an historic spot. For our honeymoon, we stayed in the Roosevelt Suite with a large balcony overlooking the courtyard. In summer, they have an outdoor bar and outdoor restaurant seating, which is so peaceful and relaxing. Staff has always been so friendly and warm. Highly recommend this -- especially for a romantic getaway. Also very convenient to walk to restaurants and shops nearby, or to visit the famous hot springs.

This was such a cool hotel. You truly feel like you're stepping back in time when you enter the Hotel Colorado. I typically prefer to stay at places that have a more modern interior, but this hotel just had so much character. It's right across the street from the hot springs and there are tons of restaurants within walking distance.
