We chose this hotel because of it’s location downtown. The staff was good, and they did include coffee and a very light breakfast. Their scones were not placed on the counter until around 8:30 am, so we dined elsewhere. Parking beside the building was easy enough, and we were able to walk around the neighborhood with no problems. Our second floor room was so small that I could not open my suitcase, despite the small bench near the foot of the bed. An air conditioning unit took up much of the room space. There was a wall unit, but it was apparently broken (certainly was not working). We did need the air conditioning. The bed was comfortable enough. The bedside light had a charging section for my cell phone, but that did not work to charge the phone during the second night for some reason. The bathroom was very small, with no counter at all, and the sink filled up each time we turned on the water. In a sort of basket hanging on the wall was a privacy sign for the door. There also was a very small round tag hidden under the privacy one-this was supposed to be hung on the room door if you wanted the room to be serviced. We never saw this little tag, so we found the bed unmade, with no fresh towels when we returned in the late afternoon. The desk clerk was able to get things in order before we returned that night. There is no elevator, and you have to carry your bags up a curving staircase-and down a narrow hallway. There is a lounge area on the second floor, and a hot tub which was closed. The downstairs lounge has a dining table and a nice seating area.

My husband and I took a 2 week road trip last month and we stopped for one night here in Steamboat. After our night here I wish we would have had more time to stay longer! The hotel is super cute and in a great spot in town, they have free parking on site which is always a plus when you're driving to a location. We stayed in the gold medal suite and it was so cute, it has three big windows facing downtown and the mountains - which it was snowing while we were there so really great view to enjoy. The room was spacious, clean and cozy. The hotel staff (I wish I remembered names - I suck in that department) were all awesome, they we're really helpful at check in, gave us all kinds of recommendations for restaurants, breweries and bars in the area based on what we said we liked. We ended up going to three of the places they recommended and had a great time - the distillery is 2 blocks away and amazing! If you're in the Steamboat area I would 100% recommend staying here, be it to do a drinking weekend or ski, or any of the summer outdoor activities in the area - it's a great spot to stay!

We had a fantastic 4-night stay at The Bristol—clean, well-maintained, and Colorado comfortable. If you are looking for an interesting, welcoming, cozy and convenient place to stay, this hotel is perfect. First off, we can only say “outstanding hospitality” about Alex and Tyler. Upon check-in we were pleasantly greeted by Alex who answered all our questions and requests. When making the reservation, Tyler provided significant information about the local restaurants since we stayed over the New Year’s holiday and during COVID when dine-in at restaurants was restricted to 25% capacity--so reservations was key. We reserved a room with a king bed (smaller than chain hotels) and later discovered there was also a suite which we will request next time. The lobby is set-up for travelers to enjoy a coffee, tea, or a few minutes near the fireplace and view passers-by on the main street out front. During COVID restrictions, the hotel maintains adherence to the guidelines and travelers seemed cognizant of other guests so we never felt uncomfortable. The upstairs also has a public area but again, with COVID, guests maintained social distance from each other. It is clear that this place is well-managed and that Geoff takes pride in ensuring customer satisfaction from the management level. The Hotel Bristol is in a historic location with plenty of amenities nearby—right in the center of many restaurants and shops; only a 2-mile drive to the ski area where there’s free parking and a short walk to the lift; bus to the ski lift area (we did not use but saw the buses along the main street). The hotel is only a few minutes walk/access to local places which we supported: Back Door Grill (yummy burgers); Lyon’s Corner Drug with an old-fashioned soda counter/jerk and great milkshakes; convenient Mazzola’s Italian restaurant with delicious meals; Mahogany Ridge (we ordered the filet mignon—incredibly tasty), Life Essentials Day Spa. There were so many other shops and restaurants nearby plus a grocery store, gas station, post office, and a really nice walking trail alongside a small ski/toboggan mountainside. We will definitely return and stay at Hotel Bristol in the summer and/or fall—this place is amazing and beautiful in the winter for skiing, we can only imagine the summer/fall.

Lovely 1 night stay at The Bristol in the heart of downtown Steamboat. Great central location and easy to walk to shops and restaurants. Not too loud either! Bed was very comfy. Room was a bit small so next time we'd opt for a larger room. But it was fine for 1 night. Staff was very friendly and great to chat with. Clean room too. Would definitely stay here again!!

Hello, Abby! Thank you for an awesome review! Glad to see the Bristol could provide you with a comfortable stay in downtown Steamboat! Despite the rooms being a bit smaller, we do have some suite options available. These rooms provide a nice sitting area, akin to a living room, at roughly double the size of a normal room. Check them out, and enjoy a hefty discount if you decide to stay with us again! Thank you again for the great review, and we hope to see you again. All the best in health and fortune, The Bristol Staff
