Boulder, CO – Hotel Boulderado (HDR)


From the lovely town of Boulder, CO…you can find the classic Hotel Boulderado. I was up here at 5 AM this day to capture the hotel in HDR. It always happens..you try to capture a subject at quiet time and some people are always up walking around at this super early time. The fun of photography! Waiting for peeps to pass on by!

Some info from the web: As one of the first Boulder hotels, the hotel’s name comes from the words “Boulder” and “Colorado” so no guest would forget where they had stayed. The hotel has become a National Register Landmark and is a member of the National Trust’s Historic Hotels of America.

The Victorian elegance of the property will embrace you from the moment you step foot into our lobby. Our stained glass ceiling and cantilevered cherry wood staircase, elegantly furnished guestrooms, and comfortable antique furnished sitting areas will impress even the most discriminating traveler.

The magnificent lobby foreshadows the luxurious decor of each of our 160 guestrooms and suites. Many of our rooms feature spectacular views of the Rocky Mountain foothills. All of them welcome you with comfortable surroundings and an array of modern conveniences. The in-house award-winning restaurant, gift shop, and lounges all ensure that you can accomplish any number of tasks just a few steps outside your guestroom door.

Since we opened on New Year’s Day in 1909 as Boulder’s first luxury hotel, we have sought to provide the highest level of service to our guests. Hotel literature from the 1920′s stated “every guest may expect the best and get it.”
