I stayed 1 night at this hotel before checking out and moving elsewhere. It has a great location, but that's about the end of the list of positives. The rooms look like they haven't been redecorated in 50 years and whole experience comes across as creepy. I'm a huge fan of historic hotels, but this one lacks modern amenities mixed... More

When I say dated, its because theres not much you can do when a hotel is historic, but they have been able to maintain it. You have to walk a ways for most rooms, and the rooms itself was small. Also, decor is very loud and had a European flair. The service was good, however, I would stay here for... More

I made a quick business trip to Boulder, Colorado this week, and, on the advice of business partners, stayed at the Hotel Boulderado. What a terrific place!

License No. 1 - What a great speakeasy feel, to a bar that has been around for very long time.

It was a very cold New Year's Eve when we checked in.

"Charm" and "charming" are found in a lot of the reviews of this hotel on this and other sites, and lthough those terms can sometimes be code for "outdated," it's not the case for this place.
