This hotel is in a great location right in the middle of downtown. It is rustic themed and an older building, but that makes the experience better. The first room we had the heat was not working, so we were moved immediately. We had the entire hot
tub to ourselves. The staff was great and friendly.
We came to Steamboat for one night of a two-night getaway. So glad we stayed there; it was such a nice change from the usual chain hotel experience and even though we stayed on a Friday night our room was nice and quiet. Loved the old-fashioned
appeal of the place; it was easy to imagine the miners who once roomed there. We appreciated the easy proximity of restaurants and leisure shopping. The freshener or whatever that was used in the room was a little heavy but otherwise we had no difficulties at all.
The Hotel Bristol was intimate and enjoyable. All rooms are non-smoking and there is no smoke residue or smell anywhere - this is very nice compared to other non-smoking rooms which still smell from the days when they were smoking spaces. The
room was small, but well appointed with a very comfortable bed, a nice view of the adjacent ski jumps and the historic downtown area. There is no continental breakfast, but complimentary coffee and tea service in the lobby, which also contains a small library and sitting area adjacent to a fireplace. We didn't try the Italian restaurant downstairs, but it is close and convenient. We would certainly come back to this hotel...
