The St. Julien is the hotel we stay at every time we visit Boulder, which is frequently since our daughter is attending the University of Colorado there. It's a lovely hotel, the rooms are very nice as well as the spa and fitness center and the restaurants. It's within walking distance of many fantastic shops and restaurants being just one block off Pearl St., and in the summer months the fantastic farmers market is just around the corner. The entire staff is extremely pleasant and always willing to please.
The reason I give it a rating of 4 instead of 5 has to do with the fact that on many of our visits we have been unable to get into the lobby bar area - there's a lovely fireplace and several couches, chairs and tables but it is always way over crowded. This is because the hotel schedules events with local groups that take up the entire lobby and bar area and guests of the hotel are lucky to find a table let alone service. In early December, during the three days I was there, they had scheduled two different local holiday group parties on the same night - the area was roped off, including the bar and there was no chance of getting any sort of service as all servers were over taxed. The following afternoon there were two local children's events (cookie decorating I think) and the area was again roped off. I think this is a bad practice on the part of the hotel. They are almost always booked to capacity and yet their guests cannot be accommodated because they also book these special events. It's easy enough to walk down the street to one of the many Boulder hot spots but I think the hotel should be more accommodating to their overnight guests.
