A Grand History
The Hotel Boulderado is a historic centerpiece of Boulder, CO that dates back to the 1900's. As Boulder started to take shape into a small city, the need for a more attractive high-end hotel grew stronger. So, people in the community got to work. Funds for the hotel were raised and, in 1909, Hotel Boulderado celebrated its grand opening on New Years Day. Considered a Boulder Landmark, this hotel grew up with Boulder. It saw the city's highs, it saw its lows and today, it stands with its head held high as a premiere hotel in Boulder.
Originally built five stories high, this brick hotel is consistent with Italian Reinesance and Spanish Revival architecture. Entering the hotel, it is hard to miss the original features that make this hotel unique. Large wood-framed doors take guests past a small, local-inspired gift shop and into a grand lobby. Old fashion chairs and couches lie in the center of the lobby. The check-in desk comes complete with a historic guestbook and a rotary phone. Looking closely at the guestbook, you will see famous names such as Helen Keller, Robert Frost and Louis Armstrong. To the left past a fireplace and old elevator, grab a drink at the historic Corner Bar. High ceilings, wood banisters and a majestic bar will take you back in time. And, for a nice sit down meal, check out Spruce, located on the opposite side of the hotel.
Tis the Season
One of the best times to go to Hotel Boulderado is during the holidays. Every year, in the middle of the lobby, the hotel's staff brings in a freshly cut christmas tree that kisses the stained glass ceiling above. A large oval landing on the way up to the second floor allows guests to indulge in the enormous tree and all its glory. Get close up and personal to check out the large ornaments that are placed on the tree and let your kids grab a candy cane that the staff hangs on the bottom branches.
Whether a Boulder resident or guest to Boulder, the Hotel Boulderado is a great place to spend some time. For more information on this historic hotel, visit The Hotel Boulderado
