What Boulderado fans are saying about the Open House:
"Thanks for hosting a very memorable event! An event like that really helps the community look back at its roots and helps shape the future!"
-- George Nickerson, Resort Maps
"Congratulations on a wonderful party yesterday! What a great turnout and the entertainment was very creative. I felt like my family walked into a piece of history. I especially thought it was very nice for the hotel to open its historic rooms to the community to walk through. I noticed many people really enjoying that. I hope the tour convinced many of them to book accommodations! Thanks for creating such a memorable experience for so many people."
-- Liz Hanson, City of Boulder
"My wife and I want to thank you for a wonderful time at the Boulderado's 100th anniversary celebration. I couldn't believe how many people were there! It is a beautiful hotel and even though we are only forty-five minutes away, we could see ourselves staying there for an evening on a 'mini-vacation.' We are definitely going to have to come back for a tour sometime when the singers and dancers are taking a break until the next party."
-- Daniel, Megan, and Jonah Baron
"Nothing like throwing a party for one thousand guests!"
-- Marsha Steckling
