This sleek hotel has been the cornerstone of southwest downtown Boulder since it opened in 2005. The contemporary furnishings, local art, and architecture complement the mountain views, which are the best of any hotel in the city. The rooms feature oversized bathrooms and pillowtop mattresses that were custom-made for the property. The facilities hit all the right notes, from Jill's Restaurant to the T-Zero Lounge to the resident spa and fitness facilities, and the location is ideal, on the fringe of the hustle and bustle but a world away.
