5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2012

We're so glad to have stayed in The St. Elmo for a variety of reasons but the most important one being that it was peaceful and quiet. We slept like babies! Good babies! The staff is very polite and pleasant. The room was clean and cozy. The breakfast was delightful. We'll be back!!

Room Tip: We had room #4...upstairs center of building on the south side. Street noise tapered down around ten...

Originally tried to book a hotel in Ouray but were all full because of an event in town. Discovered the St. Elmo and was definitely pleased we stayed here. A historic 100 year old building, now B&B, our rooms were Victorian style decorated and were very comfortable. In the morning, we had a cooked to order breakfast in the dining room with the other guests. The front office staff and dining room were very cordial and helpful. Adjacent to the hotel was an Italian restaurant.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the St. Elmo in December. It was amazing - we had romantic dinner at the Bon Ton, the attached restaurant. Amazing food. The room was very cozy, victorian style and romantic. Highly recommended.

This was our second stay at St. Elmo and after 25 years, it was as nice as we remembered. We were the only guests as April is definitely low season. However, we enjoyed the quietness. The rooms are spacious and cozy. The wine and snacks in the afternoon are a nice touch and the parlor is a good place to read, visit,play games,etc. Breakfast was delicious.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Step back in time and relive the glory days of Colorado's col-or-ful past... At the St. Elmo Hotel in Ouray, Col-orado. Once bustling with gold and sil-ver seek-ers, Ouray today is a pic-turesque ham-let, sur-rounded by 14,000 foot peaks in the majes-tic San Juan moun-tains of south-west Col-orado. The St. Elmo Hotel is a lov-ingly restored, turn-of-the-century inn located in the heart of Ouray, Col-orado, a national his-toric dis-trict. Dec-o-rated with Vic-to-rian flair and full of period antiques, this 9-room Col-orado bed and break-fast inn delights guests with a wine & cheese social hour every after-noon in the cozy par-lor and a full buf-fet break-fast every morn-ing served in the sunny break-fast room. After spend-ing the day dis-cov-er-ing a new hik-ing trail or the fine shops in the area, a soak in the out-door hot tub is a great way to relax while sur-rounded by the beau-ti-ful San Juan mountains. ... more   less
