The location is the very best part of this hotel, though it's fun to stay in an old, repurposed historic building like this. The architects did a great job of updating the decor with minimalist touches that contrast with but do not conflict with the old details. Our room had a very high ceiling and an exposed brick wall that used to be an exterior wall.
The pillows only came in one firmness: rock-hard, and the room temperature was tricky to keep comfortable, but the bed was comfy. Space was hard to come by for two people, but for a couple of nights the room was perfect.
The rooms should have a mini-fridge and better coffee, but the bathroom amenities are nice and the shower was great. They used pocket doors in the bathroom to save space, and it's amazing how well that works.
Coffee service in the mornings downstairs was spotty — they seemed to run out way too often, but it was free and tasty when you could get it. There are zillions of good restaurants within a quarter-mile, so park your car in the city garage (avoiding the costly valet fees) and walk to and from your meals.
Colorado College is a few blocks away, and the mountains loom over everything downtown in a way that is beckoning toward adventure.More
