Call their toll free number (800-233-8469) and request the special MahlerFest patron room rate (which is normally lower than the rates provided by third-party hotel websites, and more flexible.)  Reservations for this rate must be made 30 days in advance of arrival. Call 800-233-8469 and reference the code “MAHLERFEST” to obtain the group rate.

The elegant lobby and stylish well-appointed rooms reflect a gracious ambiance found throughout the hotel. During your stay, enjoy complimentary hot breakfasts, free in-room high speed internet access, 40 inch LCD TVs with 60 HD channels, and a 24-hour business center. Other guest facilities include a large seasonal outdoor pool, sauna, and hot tub.

MahlerFest’s hospitality events will be held in the festival hospitality suite, located in the Best Western Plus Boulder Inn.

Note: Due to other events occurring during the week of MahlerFest, there will be exceptionally high demand for hotel rooms at the Best Western Plus Boulder Inn.  Please make your reservations as early as possible.  As always, the MahlerFest rate allows for modifications and cancellations up to 4:00 pm the day before arrival.
