Luxury in the Foothills: Boulder's Most Elegant Hotels

Boulder, Colorado is a mix of rustic and luxurious beauty. The rolling foothills, jutting Flatirons, ambling streams, and razor sharp canyons all beg you to rough it and get dirty. However, after you're done playing you may want to sleep in the lap of luxury. Luckily, Boulder offers a variety of elegant hotels, each with their own distinct personality and offerings. 

 Topping out our list, the St. Julien Hotel and Spa is world renowned and a local favorite as it open its doors up to the masses for drinks, dining, dancing and much more. Their spa is beyond compare and will leave you feeling pampered as you can choose from a smorgasbord of delicious facials, massages, body wraps, and much more. 

If you still desire elegance but wanna turn the fun up a notch, Ameristar Casino Resort Spa Black Hawk offers elegant dining, onsite bars, a Starbucks and, of course, the casino where you can spend extravagantly and win big! 

For a more historical and "local" experience, the Hotel Boulderado is a tourist and local favorite, offering elegant dining, unique room decor and tons of fun facts for history hounds.
