Small hotel in the heart of Steamboat springs. We were there in summer around July 4th. Walk outside the hotel and view the holiday parade. Rooms are somewhat small as it's an older property, but they're decorated nicely. Our room was darker than it needed to be due to double black-out window coverings - they could lose one set and have some nice thinner shades to let some light in. Staff is friendly and helpful - their recommendation for restaurants were solid. Better pillows would help too.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for Hotel Bristol, we greatly appreciate your time. As to the shades, we purposely selected this shade arrangement, as some guest like to sleep in and prefer the option of darkening the room. The "top down/bottom up black out blinds provides the option to have as much or as little light as one would like. I will follow up with my manager on the pillows to ensure we have the very best in comfortable pillows. Stop in again sometime, we would love to have you.

Beds have those terrible soft, shapeless, grandma mattresses that I thought hotels everywhere discarded long time ago. Otherwise it's a small no frills hotel, centrally located in the old town, clean, and with friendly staff.

Thank you for writing a review for Hotel Bristol as we greatly appreciate all comments. While pillow & matress firmness is a matter of personal preference, I apologize that you found our bedding to be uncomfortable, but the mattresses are barely one (1) year old. We use a Serta Platinum Pillowtop mattress that many guest find very comfortable, but again, it is presonal preference. Additionally, thank you for the comment about our staff, as we strive to offer the very best in customer service. I do hope that you will give us another try on your next visit to Steamboat Springs. Thank you again!

We stayed overnight at the Bristol.Downtown location is great, People were very helpful, Good free coffee/tea in the AM. Rooms are small but clean and bed was very comfortable. Checked in and printed boarding passes for flight home. Late May in Colorado everything is so green! Simply Amazing! Going back to Steamboat, Great place for road Cycling and or Skiing., hiking. Wish I had stayed longer

Room Tip: Coal train comes through at night and is very loud.

Thank you for your review and comments. We stive to offer the very best in service and accomodations. As to the train, its schedule is extremely unpredictible. When my daughter got married at the Botanical Gardens (next to the tracks) we called to see when the train ran to avoid any issues. The representative said "there is no schedule"! Sorry for the train noise. : )
......and yes, our valley is beautiful in May AND June.

I stayed at the Bristol with a friend for a ski trip. The location is perfect, walking distance to anything downtown. Great restaurants and shops all around, off street parking too. My plans changed and I needed to change the type of room I wanted, they fixed me up in minutes by email, never a complaint.

The room we had was clean, warm and nice. But small. You don't spend much time in the room anyway on a ski vacation. The hot tub was in perfect working order and a welcome luxury. The TV isn't exactly the best, some channels didn't work, but again, you're not in Steamboat to watch the tube (although the local access channel is worth a look, some funny stuff) ... in all, a great, no hassle experience with nice folks in a great location.

We had a very pleasant stay at the Hotel Bristol and wished we could have stayed longer. The hotel has the modern amenities (Wi-Fi, hot tub, etc.) yet has kept its unique character different from the usual chain. It has all the important basics including comfortable beds, efficient heat and cooling, and cleanliness. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful with dining recommendations and suggestions of things to do, most within walking distance. Rooms at the end of the hall have windows on two walls overlooking the town. One wall faced east, and with shades that opened either at the top or the bottom. We were able to watch the sunrise over the mountains from our bed with the shades opened at the top only for privacy, which is a great way to get your day started along with the coffee in the lobby.

This is a very nice, old style Hotel with excellently friendly staff. The rooms are a bit small, but it's all there what you need. And you are in the Center of the town. Unfortunately, there is no pool in the Hotel, but you can use the hot tub with view to the front street.

Room Tip: all rooms are good, the suites are better!

My wife & I stayed here for 3rd & 4th July 2013, the room was immaculately clean, as was the whole property. The location of this hotel is superb, walking distance to bars, restaurants, and when it is the rodeo. The rooms are on the small size compared to other hotels in the USA but remember this a period hotel, and being from England, we were more than happy with the room. The Jacuzzi on the first floor is great, and we quite enjoyed sitting in it watching the world go on in the street below. The staff were very helpful and friendly, we would definitely return here if we go back to Steamboat.
