With an earthy exterior of rust-colored stone and muted greens and golds, the four-story St Julien Hotel & Spa blends naturally into the jagged mountain backdrop of downtown Boulder. Floor-to-ceiling windows on two sides of the oversize hotel lounge blur the line between inside and out, as does the glass fireplace that anchors one end of the room, offering peekaboo views of the outdoor fountain just beyond. A blend of locals and guests mingle in what’s become Boulder’s favorite living room, sipping mulled wine while curled up on deep couches and chatting about the latest Pearl Street oddities. Rooms balance the rugged outdoors with indoor creature comforts with their rich wood floors, plush earthtone rugs, natural stone walls and soaring ceilings, as well pillow-top mattresses and Italian linens. Little touches like custom art by a local photographer and an iPod dock add to the homey vibe.
In the Area
The hotel sits right in the middle between Boulder’s Rocky Mountain majesty and its urban epicenter. On one side are the craggy, climbable Flatiron Mountains and access to the city’s 45,000 acres of hikeable open space. On the other is the Pearl Street Mall, a pedestrian-friendly hub of boutiques, cafés, bookshops, breweries, street performers, and no shortage of dining options. Resident foodies have a preference for local, organic ingredients, and the most sought-after restaurants in town deliver. St Julien’s restaurant, Jill’s, holds its own. The handlebar-mustached Frenchman’s penchant for tableside cooking, from steak to bananas foster, means your entire meal can now be prepared while you watch.

The only thing missing was in demand still in theaters movie selection , but this made us spend more time talking to each other
Our stay at the St. Julien hotel was flawless and memorable in every way. WE selected a 5-night stay for our daughter's graduation from the University of Colorado, Boulder and couldn't be more pleased. Some of the amenities were unique to graduation, however, I believe they provide the same level of attention at any time of the year. The hidden circular driveway is well attended by valet and bellboys. Barely two-minutes from your car to the check-in desk - although in our case we were greeted by a full-blown champagne reception and a beautifully decorated graduation cake in the lobby. One note - there was due diligence to check the IDs for serving the champagne.
Checkin was seamless with plenty of attendants at the desk, all seeming to have been genuinely awaiting your arrival and acting as if they were just as proud to be sharing in your special occasion. Our luggage was whisked away and we arrived at an immaculate top floor room with a mountain view. There was a lovely welcome package with hand made chocolates and a St. Julien stadium bag awaiting on the bed.
The room was extremely spacious, well appointed and the full size soaking tub was adorned with luxurious spa amenities.
The lobby of the St. Julien is really like a speak easy. In good weather, much of he activity would be outside on the beautiful Terrace but being indoors also had a ski lodge feel and the night;y live entertainment was excellent with dancing also. The lobby lounge scene went up to 11pm every night with attentive bar service and food.
We took full advantage of the spa which is available to guests for pool, sauna and steam room. The gy is also located there and there is also an outdoor deck for enjoying cocktails etc. The whole spa area is immaculate and the lockers ae fully stocked with robes, sandals and other necessities. It's a heavenly experience.
We dined at Jill's which was more casual than I' had expected. I would say the specialty is the breakfast buffet which was more than a cut above the typical hotel breakfast.
By day two, the staff had memorized our names and greeted us at every turn to see if we were were happy or needed anything. There was an excellent evening turndown that included chocolates, curtains drawn and soft music playing. Daily bottled water was included complimentary in the room.
All in all, it was the kind of room you didn't want to leave, but being right in the middle of Peal Street it was super convenient to EVERYTHING.
We loved everything about our stay and really can't think of anywhere in the region we'd rather be.
Absolutely fabulous service, beautiful location, and beautiful hotel with fabulous amenities! We used the pool and spa, both of which are lovely. Bikes to rent are fun, and the concierge was super helpful.
Great room, very clean, quality bedding. The food is amazing to say the least. Service at the bar is exceptional!
The only thing that I’ve found unsatisfying is I’ve stayed there 3 times and used the spa about a total of 8 times and 75% of the time the jacuzzi is just warm and it’s a big let down.
I rarely do surveys but this place deserves it! This is my second stay and I can’t wait until my next time here (fall 2020). My vacation was 2 weeks and I was looking forward to this part of it the entire time. Everything was perfect. The staff was absolutely phenomenal and I feel horrible that I don’t remember the names; however, it included the valet, bellman, all 3 receptionists, the spa and the room service gentleman whom I enjoyed talking NHL with. I gave all perfect scores because this place deserves it. Well done and I can’t wait to visit again.
