fun in the process.

conventional grocery stores, corner delis, fine restaurants, elementary
schools, airlines, coffee shops and cafes all across the country,

having fun, we at the IZZE Beverage Company also share a strong desire
to give back to the community. This is why our company supports a

the hotel was purchased on December 5, 2002 by an investment team
led by Dan King and Gregory Hartmann (both Boulderites), they did
what they do best. With their combined 40 years of hotel consulting
and operations experience and the resources of HVS Hotel Management
and HVS International, they evaluated all the options. Should this
prime real estate (literally steps from the University of Colorado
campus) be leveled to build a new "vanilla" hotel or even
a residential condo development? Does Boulder really need another
upscale, formal, high price hotel? They surveyed business, university,
tourism and community leaders, as well as hotel guests. Where's
the unmet need? What do guests want?
The decision: Create a new concept. Revive and enrich this solidly
built 40-year old hotel property with personality, color and energy
that reflects and celebrates Boulder, Colorado - an eclectic and
unique town that surrounds us. Keep it affordably priced! (Who really
wants to pay more?) Provide a full-service, mid-priced, professionally
operated hotel, for corporate/business and leisure guests, with
"unexpected" customer service and amenities. Provide opportunities
for travelers to quench their thirst for adventure and to experience
the "local flavor." Create a fun hotel experience in an
informal, casual setting - a "Boulder Outlook Hotel Experience."
