“even our two kids were rapt”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2013

we happened by this museum by chance and it was the highlight of the day. our tour guide was extremely engaged and had lots of stories up his sleeve. everything in "as was in those days" condition, down to pea tins in the kitchen to beds that fold into desks...really an interesting place. don't miss it.

“Beautiful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2012 via mobile

This is probably the best thing to see in a small town rich with history. The place has been restored beautifully! I loved going back into time in this museum!

“Worth a Visit if You’re in Town”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2012

The Hotel de Paris is one of the main attractions in Georgetown. It’s well worth a visit if you’re in town, but don’t drive to Georgetown just to see it. At its most basic, it’s a pretty typical building/museum of its kind – an old hotel with a history. The “self-guided tour” (which I think is a bit of an oxymoron) is very reasonably priced (especially with AAA or Senior discounts), and the majority of furnishings, architecture, and decorations are original to the hotel which is a plus. I found it interesting that the volunteer docents pronounced the founder’s name differently, and one of the spiels was definitely scripted, but at least the folks were available to answer questions. All in all, if you enjoy old buildings with a story behind them, you’ll probably enjoy this one. Otherwise, it’s just an old building with a story behind it…

“History told by great Ambassadors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2012

We came to Georgetown with a city sponsored recreation trip from Aurora, Colorado. Part of the trip was to attend the Christmas Fair taking place throughout town. Our trip included tickets to visit the Hotel de Paris and the Hamill House. What very interesting attractions they turned out to be. The Hotel is well preserved considering its age. It gives you a very accurate glimpse of what it must have been like to stay in such a well appointed hotel in the 19th Century. Best of all were the nice ladies that provided historical background and information in each room. They are excellent examples of Ambassadors for the City of Georgetown and any town would be lucky to have such dedicated and informative volunteers. They brought the place to life. Truly impressive.

“Beautiful museum, fascinating history.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2012

The building and furnishings and antiques, beautifully maintained and lovely to look at. The kitchen, and bathroom fittings are original with the old oven and washtubs. We took a guide led tour ($2.00) and learned the fascinating tale of the "mysterious Frenchman" who had run the Hotel de Paris.
