“Nice Old Hotel- Great Location”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

Whenever we go to Glenwood we stay at the Hotel Colorado. It is right downtown so location is great. The dinner menu is also good. They are pet friendly which is so nice for our dog. It is a old hotel so no a/c but I think the charm makes up for it.

This hotel was exactly as billed. A beautiful, historic, elegant building with cheerful service. Very close to the hot springs. Garden cafe was a great place for a drink and the menu looked interesting. The lobby was a wonderful place to just hang out, with elegant old furniture and lots of comfortable places to sit. Our room was a bit small. Bedding was nice but mattresses were very, very soft. There is no air conditioning in the rooms though there are fans. The whole place is showing its age. A fun experience but be prepared.

Hotel Colorado is in a terrific location in Glenwood Springs, located right across from the hot springs pool and within walking distance of neighborhood eateries, etc...we have stayed in this hotel throughout the years growing up when we come to the hot springs and it is our favorite place.

The rooms are old and have no a/c but are so full of character that we love it. The super wide hallways with seemingly lower ceilings makes the place seem like you would see ghosts wandering around, which is why I think the place has so much charm in that kind of way! The last time we stayed in a family room which had 2 rooms sharing a middle bathroom...plenty of towels, hot water, nice and clean...plus, they allow dogs so what more could you ask for?

Free parking around the hotel, great restaurants inside and out on the porch, newer (at least from 20 yrs ago) coffee shop with fun stuff to buy to eat...and a terrific staff every time we have stayed there! We have only had the breakfast in the inside restaurant but it was very tasty....and the hotel is always offering different specials and packages, so definitely check those out...the lower level of the hotel has things like rafting companies and things like that...we didn't check it out the last time we were there so not really sure...

I highly recommend staying here at least once...maybe it doesn't have all the fancy things like a microwave and fridge and the heaters are those old radiator type units...we were only there in the evenings and were running around at the pool and other places during the day anyway!

We had a mixed experience. The place was very clean, the room especially with comfortable beds and high quality linens and towels; and the staff were welcoming. But we were here in August and it was hot, and the grand old place has no AC! Sure you can open the windows but to noise and fumes from the kitchens. Then there is only one elevator in the whole hotel, so with luggage you can wait ages, a real 10 minutes! No doubt this was once a fine, luxury hotel but the owners obviously have done little to update it since 1930.

Room Tip: If you go in summer, try for a room at the side, to avoid kitchen fumes or the highway and water par...

The charm of this hotel is its history, and we have stayed here before, so we knew exactly what to expect. As a result, loved it. No a/c, old rooms . . . no problem. The showers work great, the beds are comfortable, and there are box and ceiling fans in the rooms. The hotel is walking distance from EVERYthing -- we parked the car and never had to drive again until leaving, including for the bike trails. The front courtyard with Adirondack chairs and benches is delightful in afternoon (completely shaded) and evening for having a drink or just relaxing and enjoying the mountain town. Staff was warm and friendly, and room service breakfast was exactly what we ordered. Fun stay.

Room Tip: Rooms on the west side of the hotel, facing the courtyard, get plenty of shade.

First off i have to say this is the place if your in town on two wheels. We were pleasantly surprised by the front desk staff that they have covered motorcycle parking on the side of the building. The room was clean and shortly after check in we received a phone call from guest services asking if we needed anything, very nice in my opinion. Bed was very comfortable and the only negatives are no A/C although tolerable with the window fan. The shower temp was extremely finicky to try and get a less than scalding temp. Water would start out cold for a very long time then get uncontrollably hot. TV is slightly small for the room size. Furniture sort of rickety but again going with the historic theme. Noise was a slight issue the second morning there with doors slamming. The courtyard area was really really nice as well as the bar with very friendly staff. We would stay here again, overall was a good experience.

I paid $130 for a single night. I know staying at "historical hotels" is often a compromise against modern amenities. Hotel Colorado has a lot of history. However, unfortunately the room was worse than a budget motel. I don't need air conditioning on 4th floor if I know the building is historic, but I do need a ceiling fan that is installed correctly and doesn't bounce back and forth across the ceiling. Also, when opening the window I found no screen so I had to choose between an open window and bugs flying in from outside. The bathtub was in disrepair, and the showerhead was probably a $10 investment. No extras came along with the $130 ticket--no in-room coffeemaker, no free lobby coffee or continental breakfast, nothing.

I think the hotel draws people for its history, which is interesting. By all means drop by when you're in Glenwood Sprs. and learn a little about it. There isn't a tour or anything, just a packet of photocopied historical one-liners. Again, interesting history and it could really be leveraged better with some actual story-telling. Anyway, you don't need to stay there to get the history, and I recommend you don't. ESPECIALLY for $130 for a single king bed. You'd have a more comfortable stay for half the price at a motorlodge and not leave feeling like you were ripped off.
