The St Julien in Boulder is no doubt a luxurious property (it's one of only two hotels in town to offer a spa), but we remember it for its outstanding location and killer views of the iconic Flatirons - one of the most recognizable rock formations on the front range of the Rockies in Colorado.

When gold was discovered in the mountains near Boulder in 1859, the town became a supply center for the new mining communities that began to pop up. A train ran from the center of town up into Boulder Canyon for almost forty years until 1919, and today the St Julien sits on the site of that old rail yard on Walnut Street between 9th and 10th. The Flatirons are located nearby in Chautauqua Park, and yes, you can hike up, in, and around the triangular rock faces.

The hotel is a block south of the restaurants and bars of Pearl Street and a five-minute walk from its four-block pedestrian mall. We found the entire experience to be welcoming on our visit last summer. We liked the accessibility to both the outdoors and the nightlife that came along with the comfortable accommodations. Check out the photo gallery below, and request a room (from $259 per night) on the south side with a balcony to take in the Flatiron views.
