St Julien Hotel & Spa Ranks High on U.S. News & World Report’s BestHotel List

BOULDER, Colo. – February 2, 2017 – U.S. News & World Report today announced its 2017 Best Hotel rankings and St Julien Hotel & Spa was recognized as the ‘Best Hotel in Boulder.’ The award winning property was one of twelve other properties within the state to earn a Gold Badge by scoring in the top 10 percent of the Best Hotels in the U.S.A., and was recognized as number 12 of the 776 Best Hotels in Colorado.

U.S. News & World Report identifies the best hotels using a comprehensive methodology centered on three components: reputation among professional travel experts, guest reviews and hotel class ratings. Hotels in the U.S. awarded with a Gold Badge are three times more likely to offer infinity pools, free fitness classes and free kids clubs than other ranked hotels.


“We strive to provide exceptional service to all of our guests, and we’re thrilled to be recognized among the best hotels in the state and the best in Boulder,” said Bob Trotter, St Julien Hotel & Spa general manager. “It is a meaningful endorsement, especially as the awards are based on our customer reviews.”
