Travelers who want to experience the essence of the snow and clear skies state, Colorado, can indulge themselves in luxurious historical adventure with Hotel Boulderado. Opened on New Year’s Day 1909 in the heart of historic Boulder, “The Athens in the West,” the hotel offers 160 rooms and suites equipped with all the 21st century amenities yet still preserving the charm of the era.
Located in downtown Boulder, that has been named the happiest place in the U.S., the hotel is surrounded by the city’s year-round outdoor activities, talented chefs, breweries, and vibrant atmosphere. Even an hour drive from the Denver International Airport seems as a necessary time sacrifice to see the majestic landscapes of American Frontier through the large windows of Hotel Boulderado. A 5-minute walk to Pearl Street Mall, a four block pedestrian hub for dining, arts, and shopping, ranked among Food & Wine’s 10 Best Foodie Streets in America, and a 10-minute drive to amazing Flatirons, massive slabs of sandstone that form Boulder’s backdrop, makes out of the hotel a perfect introduction into the local scene.
Walking in the hotel’s lobby, guests inevitably pass the fascinating area decorated with antique furniture, stained glass ceiling canopy, and splendid stairs of cherry wood. Whether you decide to settle in the historic section of the hotel, where each room is uniquely appointed in the décor and style of Victorian times, or move in into one of the guest rooms in northern wing, decorated with a modern mountain style, you will have access to premium HD cable, complimentary Wi-Fi, high-end bedding, Boca bathrobes and 100% cotton bath linens. By special request, the hotel offers select rooms that feature views of the Rocky Mountain foothills. For parties of up to 15 who wish to stay together in a stand-alone home, the Hotel Boulderado offers the Carriage House, which is located across the street where you can enjoy all the hotel’s amenities.
Let’s not forget that Boulder was named America’s Foodiest Town by Bon Appétit. And Hotel Boulderado offers a truly Boulder dining experience. Spruce Farm & Fish, guided by Executive Chef John Payne, is a step into a culinary world that upholds seasonality, local and responsible sourcing, and masterful culinary creativity in the same space. Perfect for a casual brunch and dinner, seafood is central to the menu, but don’t miss out on certified angus beef house smoked prime rib, a meaty gem of dinner specials.
No need to leave the hotel if you need a good drink, as The Corner Bar, a casual pub and Boulder’s favorite local watering hole with a wide variety of local craft beers, including a rotating tap, as well as an exclusive selection of local spirits, and License No. 1, a classy bar with the swank ambience of a 1920s speakeasy that tantalizes cocktails made from an array of top-shelf liquors, as well as wines and local craft beers, are located just below your room. If you need a freshly brewed coffee, try Boxcar Coffee Bar located in the lobby. It serves local Boxcar coffee, juices, teas and treats for sweet tooth.
A bastion of history and hospitality, Hotel Boulderado seeks to truly embody the spirit of this delightfully unconventional town by providing its guests with impeccable service for over a hundred years.
