  • The most beautifully kept and restored historic hotel. I used to go to all the Hollywood memorabilia shops in here weekly. They had the best vintage jewelry and interesting collection of little stores selling old Hollywood glam lingerie. Sadly that was 20 year ago and this weekend I went to find just 1 thing open inside and that's the hoover dam museum. The museum is nice and interactive which is great for kids. The boulder city historic hotel will always have a special place in my heart. It's still worth checking out, sign the ledger and donate few dollars to help keep the hotel alive.
  • After moving away 20 years ago and coming back to show our children where we grew up , my husband and I were so happy to see how well this hotel is being cared for. It was in very poor condition in the 90s. The mini Museum about the construction of the dam is a lot of fun. Definitely worth the stop if you are traveling from Las Vegas to see the dam
