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
Nice staff. Luxurious rooms. Great location and a nice indoor pool. Restaurant, thought pricey is very good and very good happy hour. The lobby is great to hanf out... needs new upholstery , a little dingy, but I expect this is an expensive place to keep up. Very near the gorgeous Boulder Creek
Recently here for a business conference. Very nice staff who handled requests quickly and without fuss. Clean upscale room with tub in addition to shower. Good lighting. Bed was comfortable. Would stay here again and recommend highly to others. Very convenient to downtown Boulder restaurants, and not too far from the University. Only quibbles, and neither is a deal breaker, were middling, oversize pillows instead of regular (I know some like these) and the TV (and its software) was a bit small and dated relative to the quality of everything else.
visited my daughter at college and she recommended staying here. Boy am I glad she did!! What a great place. Top notch from the moment you drive onto the property. Cant wait to go visit again so I can stay here again!!
Loved our weekend stay! Enjoyed the spa and a massage. The evening turn down service with our ice bucket filled and cookies each night was extra nice. The hotel was busy, however the happy hour service and room service was prompt. The food was very good. A great location in the heart of downtown, quiet, clean and friendly helpful staff. Looking forward to our next visit.
Always a pleasant and welcoming environment. Great staff and amazing facilities! I had a mom and daughter weekend with my 10 yr old and we had an amazing time! Food at T-Zero was great, great recommendations for concierge.
