Locally sourced luxury in downtown Boulder

This downtown Boulder hotel offers inspiring views of the Flatiron mountain formations and is located near the University of Colorado and the famed Pearl Street Mall. The hotel was built on the site of a former rail yard that operated from 1883 to 1919; this yard was connected to the Switzerland Trail, a railroad path that once linked many of the gold mining camps in Boulder County.

In addition to its rich history, the St Julien places a high value on local artists. Landscape photos shot by local photographer Anne Barrett are displayed in guest rooms and in the corridors of the second through fourth floors. And on the main floor of the hotel, near the Xanadu Ballroom, a rotating collection of artwork produced by a variety of local artists can be seen.

From art to fare, hotel guests will enjoy Jill’s Restaurant, which showcases contemporary American and French cuisine, and uses many locally grown organic vegetables, fruits and plants from the Boulder Farmers' Market in its dishes. You may also choose to enjoy afternoon tea service with friends or family in the hotel’s Great Room. Sandwiches are made with fresh ingredients from the Boulder Farmers' Market, as well.

And when it’s time to veg out, head to the 10,000-square-foot Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Spa at St Julien. The sanctuary of relaxation, renewal and comfort has a full menu of services to choose from. In addition to personal treatments, guests can also unwind in the eucalyptus-infused stream room, sauna, hot tub or pool.

If you’re in the mood for a little action, explore the great outdoors. The hotel is within close proximity of the Rocky Mountains and more than 60 parks. Boulder also has more than 200 miles of public biking and hiking trails to share with fitness enthusiasts.

After a day of adventure, you may want to unwind with some live music and enjoy a drink or two. The hotel features live music Tuesday through Sunday evenings during the summer months on the Terrace, and live music is offered at varied times throughout the rest of the year.

Guests can expect the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel’s 201 guest rooms to be modern in design and as comfortable as they are stylish. And with the option to choose between a room with a city view or the mountain range, it’s a win-win no matter your preference.
