BOULDER, CO-Boulder-based HVS Hotel Management next month will host the coming out party for the Boulder Outlook Hotel & Suites at 800 28th St. Formerly a Ramada Inn, it was acquired by a group of investors led by two local businessmen last December.

They spent more than $1.5 million refurbishing the 40-year-old property and HVS describes it as the “cure for the common hotel.” The hotel will feature the “Boulder Square” that will include two climbing rocks, a heated indoor chlorine-free lagoon-shaped pool with a liquid solar cover, a cascading waterfall, a flagstone hot tub, an arcade and an exercise room.

It will offer high-speed wireless Internet access, but so do most hotels these days. But how many have their own herb garden? Boulder Outlook does. Designated “pet friendly” rooms are adjacent to a fully enclosed dog walk. Guests in the pet-friendly rooms will receive complimentary “Fido Gift Packs.” Dog walking services are available, as well as in-room veterinary care.

For guests interested in exploring the Boulder area, the Outlook’s “Adventure Concierge” services in the hotel’s lobby will provide guests with nearby adventure options including rock climbing, kayaking, fly-fishing and hang gliding. Families traveling with young children will receive complimentary “Baby-ready Gift Packs” which include diapers, and a bib as well as organic baby food.

“We have gone to great lengths to reflect the spirit of Boulder within our hotel,” says Dan King, president of HVS Hotel Management. “We wanted The Boulder Outlook to be a unique facility along the Front Range, and with our wonderful view of the Flatirons, it was quite natural for us to try and capitalize on such beauty by mimicking it within the hotel. By all early indications, it looks like we’ve succeeded.”

Not only have common spaces such as the Boulder Square been renovated throughout the Outlook, but also many of the hotel’s 162 rooms have been totally refurbished. Individual rooms now have everything from 27-inch TVs, to curved shower-curtain rods that allow for more showering space, to remodeled bathrooms, to new bedspreads and mattresses.

The Outlook’s 3,700-sf of meeting rooms also have been updated. The Mt. Sanitas Boardroom will be offered to local charities free of charge. In addition, the Outlook and HVS Hotel Management will donate 2% of its annual profits to local charities.

“We’ve re-created this hotel with the thought of providing patrons with a ‘Boulder experience’ at a very reasonable price,” says King.

HVS Hotel Management has operated more than 40 hotels throughout the U.S. and in Mexico since its inception in 1999.

A division of HVS International – one of the largest hotel consulting companies in the world – HVS Hotel Management was named to Hotel Business magazine’s list of Top 100 Hotel Management Companies in 2001 and 2002.
