When you enter the Hotel Boulderado’s lobby, you are rewinding more than a century to 1909 when the hotel first opened its doors. Be sure to look up at the stained glass ceiling and peak around the corner at an original water fountain that boasts of Boulder’s water coming from the Arapahoe Glacier. The Boulderado has seen good times and bad, but it has never been better than now. Its 160 opulent rooms located in both the original hotel and the newer North Wing are 21st century in function, but Victorian in appearance with opulent wallpaper, rich decorative fabrics, fine linens and traditional furniture. The beds have soft, top quality sheets and are very comfortable. If you're looking for sleek and modern, though, this is not the place for you. But if you enjoy old world charm served up with a touch of class, Hotel Boulderado fits the bill. The hotel would mostly likely be a five-star-rated hotel if it had its own swimming pool, but instead guests are provided with passes to nearby One Boulder Fitness just a few blocks away. Q’s at the Boulderado serves up healthy, fresh meals, which highlight local ingredients. Our favorite is the Roast Rack of Colorado Lamb, and the chef's choice five-course tasting dinner is always a good bet. Happy Hour is every day from 3-6PM, with $3 draft beers and $6 martini special.
