Why Choose Our Destination?

About Us: Boulder is a center for innovative thinking where mountain personality meets a unique, entrepreneurial spirit, just 45 minutes from the Denver International Airport. Cresting over the hill on highway 36 into Boulder, it’s easy to see why this intriguing town has been dubbed “the city nestled between the mountains and reality.” New Hotels: Three new hotels opened in late 2017, including the Embassy Suites Boulder, which will boast a 6,555-square-foot divisible event hall. The new hotels join several new venues, including a sleek and tech-savvy campus with flexible space galore, a 4,000-square-foot event center, the renovated Dairy Arts Center and a 13,900-square-foot rooftop terrace.
