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.
How to Get There
The staff and facilities of this hotel are time and again, simply terrific. Our "go-to" hotel whenever we visit Boulder. Staff's warm, focused attention to their guests is truly a treat, and their detailed care of our room helps make it a true pleasure to stay.
This was our second trip to Boulder and we have stayed at the St Julien Hotel and Spa both times. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are nice, exactly what you expect for a nice facility in a big City but this is the nicest facility in a small city. The rooms were clean and well kept, the cleaning staff did a nice job daily and were not in the way. One thing to note was that the rooms were very quiet.. not sure if it's just that it's a quiet city or a well built facility.. either way it was nice. The amenities were nice but not over the top.. they had live music in the lobby 2 of the nights we were there and that was nice but not disruptive, everyone in the lobby seemed to really enjoy it, the pool and fitness areas were clean and inviting. We did not use the Spa but there is one onsite and it appeared to be very nice. This is the highest cost location in Boulder but it also seemed like the only high amenity location in town also.
This was my second time staying at the St. Julien. The St. Julien is a nice hotel. The rooms are nice, but the bathrooms are amazing. It is like a mini-spa in your room. The housekeeping does a great job every day with morning and evening service. I ordered room service a few times and they were always quick, and the food was delicious.
We stayed here for four nights and enjoyed the location of the hotel which for our purposes was close to the University and restaurants. The concierge is out of this world, running around getting cars and loading them with suitcases, quicker than a blink of an eye! The hotel is clean and has Colorado themed décor. A very busy hotel too, lots going on all the time, but our room was so quiet! Which really was surprising as there was a 'moms' weekend going on! Really loved it here and will absolutely go back!
Nicest property we ever stayed at. Hotel and Spa were impeccable. Room was spotless. Amenities were high quality. Location was perfect. The entire staff from valets, guest staff, and administrative staff were the best. A great value.? Will definitely return
