The new “Boulder Lifestyle Meetings Menu” at St Julien Hotel & Spa will feature a variety of teambuilding exercises designed to help groups be more effective and have fun! Keeping all the sophisticated style expected from a distinguished member of Preferred Hotels and Resorts LVX Collection, an AAA Four-Diamond Property and a Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Hotel, these new experiences allow groups to experience Boulder like never before. 

“We’re seeing more corporate groups and executives opt to network while road cycling or over a game of golf,” said Valerie Knorr, Director of Sales and Marketing. “In response to this, we have created this a la carte meetings menu to provide our groups and c-suite travelers with an opportunity to bond over these more active offerings that are unique to Boulder.”

This locally owned hotel offers guests a combination of world-class accommodations blended with Boulder’s relaxed yet sophisticated style of hospitality. The group experiences are a departure from traditional corporate retreats; adventures on St Julien’s new Boulder Lifestyle Meetings Menu include:

Boulder Bike & Brews Guided Tour

Colorado’s craft beer scene is so impressive that it’s Front Range has been dubbed the “Napa Valley of Beer.” Boasting more than 20 of the country’s best breweries and brewpubs in the greater Boulder area, visitors from around the world come here to get their drink on. Grab a bike and your crew to experience Colorado’s craft beer culture with a Boulder Bike & Brews guided day tour. Up to 10 participants will visit three to four of Boulder’s best breweries during the leisurely bike ride – bikes, helmets, and snacks included. The afternoon tour is available for $79 per person.

Royal Arch Guided Hike

Boulder and the foothills of the Rocky Mountains are home to some of the world’s most beautiful hiking trails and climbing routes.

Guided by Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides, prices start at $110 per person and include snacks, water, as well as round-trip transportation from St Julien Hotel & Spa.

Yoga Break

Find your inner peace for only $9 per person as a certified instructor from the Boulder studio leads the group in a private, 60-minute yoga session on St Julien’s beautiful outdoor lawn facing the Flatiron Mountains. Indoor spaces are available as well if preferred. A 90-minute hiking and yoga workshop is also available, including a 35-minute guided hike on a nearby trail, complemented by a 30-minute yoga session during the trek. Amana Yoga will leave you feeling refreshed and restored.

Ideally located in central downtown Boulder, guests can easily walk to downtown shopping and the restaurant district. For guests looking to stay in, DirecTV access comes standard in all guestrooms and Jill’s Restaurant, St Julien Hotel & Spa also offers up to 100 Mbps of bandwidth via fiber optic connection and complimentary high-speed internet access up to 20 Mbps per user. The hotel offers delicious catering services, state-of-the-art AV equipment, ample underground parking and world-class concierge service for both guests and organizers. No matter what the event, St Julien Hotel & Spa’s 16,000 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor meeting space is Boulder’s premier destination for meetings and groups.

 

 

How much is too much? At many meetings and events, frazzled and fractured attention spans are put in hyperdrive with a wall-to-wall, dawnto-dusk agenda.

“Things are so rushed in today’s world,” says Angela Coleman, manager of events and meetings for KPMG, LLC in Denver. “Everybody’s got to do five things at once. We’re learning quickly that it doesn’t always benefit our attendees or conferencegoers.”

 

Heading into the start of a new year provides an excellent opportunity to hear from the people in the tasty trenches of Colorado’s burgeoning culinary scene. Feed Media helped us plug into food and beverage predictions from talented Denver and Boulder chefs, owners, beverage and hospitality directors, general managers and more. Just a warning, these observations might make you hungry and thirsty, but it will give you a cornucopia of ideas for group gatherings in 2018!

We’ve mentioned the new Outlaw Mountain Coaster introduced at Steamboat Ski Resort in 2017, and now there are new alpine coasters debuting at Copper Mountain Resort, Purgatory Resort and Snowmass. These fairly mild but super scenic thrill rides are great for meeting breaks!
