We loved working with the Boulderado and Melissa! It was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Having the ceremony and reception in the same venue was great. The in-house catering made for easy food and drink choices and the decor already present on the Mezzanine (romantic Victorian) made it easier to decorate the tables. Having an in-house wedding coordinator also made a huge difference. Melissa made herself available whenever we needed to check in about something and helped us with some significant, last minute changes. I never felt like I was inconveniencing her, even when I was obsessing about last minute details. I was able to show her my decorations for the space and was confident that she would make sure they were done correctly. We did not have to worry about set-up or clean up of the reception space - the banquet manager was on top of everything and made sure that all of our stuff ended up in the Bridal Suite. We would recommend 100% using the Boulderado for a wedding or other big event!

We had the best experience possible with the Hotel Boulderado! We booked our venue about a year and a half before we actually got married and the hotel experienced some changes during that time. Our package that we purchased never changed though some pricing changes occurred and they still accommodated everything we had originally wanted with no additional charges. Sam is by far the most professional reassuring person I worked with while planning my wedding and she was able to wrangle our crazy wedding party and assure that everything went off without a hitch. Also, the banquet team took care of everything from start to finish from set up to tear down. I did not worry about a thing all day and it was because of the experience, professionalism, and positive attitudes of the folks that work there. If you are looking for a venue that alleviates all of the stress that goes along with planning a wedding, than this is your venue.

The evening was wonderful, we did have 3 event planners in 9 months. The staff were great and handled everything the day of, the food was wonderful and our family LOVED the hotel!
The Boulderado is one of our favorite venues! Beautiful, historical setting and flexible, truly friendly and attentive staff. Located right in downtown Boulder, this venue offers a true Colorado experience for your out-of-state wedding guests with easy access from DIA and all that downtown Boulder offers. The Fever loves working with, and playing at The Boulderado!
I LOVE shooting at the Boulderado! This is a gorgeous hotel, the staff is fantastic, and it's one of my favorite venues in Colorado's Front Range!
This historic hotel is one of my favorite places to work as a photographer. The staff is so accommodating and nice and obviously care about everyone having a truly awesome experience. The food is consistently excellent. You can't beat the location. I highly recommend the Hotel Boulderado.
