The accommodations scene offers a small variety of options in each budget and style category. There are waves of demand that follow the universities' schedules, as well as a number of big conferences throughout the year, so be sure to book as far ahead as you can.
At the top of the heap are the historic Hotel Boulderado and the modern St. Julien Hotel, the latter of which was the first new hotel built in downtown Boulder in more than 100 years.
There are a few respectable bed-and-breakfasts in town, too, and a handful of reliable chains. As befitting a college town, there is even a hostel, Boulder International Hostel.
