Restoring Historic Cripple Creek Lodging
Cripple Creek Hotel Enjoys Extensive Remodeling
What do you do with a historic 1890's hospital, overlooking Cripple Creek and the surrounding mountains, and just a short walk from casinos, attractions, and fine food?
You create a hotel that displays the rich character of the turn of the century and adds modern amenities that make lodging there a true pleasure.
The Hotel St. Nicholas, named for the gold rush-era hospital that once occupied the same building, offers a blend of fascinating history and gracious accommodations in a charming Cripple Creek bed and breakfast inn.
Innkeeper Susan Adelbush has blended the old and the new into a unique lodging experience. From the warmth and comfort of the guest rooms to the roof-top Jacuzzi offering a view of Cripple Creek and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, you will feel as though everything was made just for you.
It took a year of renovation and almost $450,000 to transform a former hospital into a luxurious Cripple Creek hotel. Each of the 15 distinctive rooms contains its own unique features, from imposing views to an enclosed balcony to a cozy sitting room. All of the rooms have one thing in common - romance.
The St. Nicholas’ roof-top Jacuzzi offers a sweeping view from Cripple Creek's downtown to the distant Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The 104 degree water allows you to relax in the warmth whenever you're in the mood. Just around the corner from the Jacuzzi is the dry sauna, offering additional views of old gold mines and tailings in the historic Cripple Creek valley.
The Hotel's main floor features the Boiler Room Tavern, named for the massive, 1890's crafted cast-iron front plate from the hotel's original coal boiler that now serves as the tavern's distinctive back bar. The tavern also periodically features live music.
Guests interested in challenging Cripple Creek casinos can stroll the few blocks downhill to the gaming district, or utilize the convenient town shuttle. Rooms are priced from $80.00 to $130.00, plus tax. The room cost includes a hearty continental breakfast offering a variety of pastries, cereals, yogurts, fruits, juices, coffee and tea. The hotel offers AAA and AARP discounts. The hotel's large special events room is perfect for parties, reunions, or business meetings. The entire hotel can be reserved to accommodate up to 45 people in a group.
If there is a birthday, anniversary or romantic weekend in your future, or you simply deserve a relaxing and luxury-filled get-away, contact the staff of The Hotel St. Nicholas at 719-689-0856, or stop in and see them at 303 North Third Street in Cripple Creek.
