Day 2 of 365 Days of Boulderado Photos ~ The Fifth Floor Hallway

When Frank Day bought the Hotel Boulderado, the rooms on the west side of the historic section of the hotel were still located on the interior of the hallway. Each room, rather than having a window to the outside, instead had a window that overlooked the interior courtyard. When the first round of renovations occurred in 1980, the hotel rooms were "moved" to the other side of the hallway -- in a nutshell, the rooms became the hallway, and the hallway became the rooms. When walking down the hallway of the 5th floor on the west side, you can still see the arches that designate the spatial dimensions of the original hotel rooms, as seen in the photo above.
