Howelsen Place is THE address of Old Town Steamboat. Located at the site of the famous Harbor Hotel at 7th and Lincoln, this property captures the historical significance of ski jumping by introducing a bronze statue of Carl Howelsen, the one time world record holder for ski jumping and prominent, turn of the century Steamboat Springs resident. Discover what the locals already know. Park your car, ride you bike or walk to where it's happening; restaurants, shops, movies, you name it. When you stay in the heart of downtown you have easy access to almost everything, and the free city ski shuttle can whisk you to the mountain during ski season.
The common area grill located in the courtyard of the Lincoln Building (Building B) is available to all guests staying at Howelsen Place.
Past and present are architecturally melded together to satisfy the desire for modern interiors while maintaining the spirit of western heritage. A streamlined look has been created for all the interiors at Howelsen Place. The goal was to combine metropolitan elements with traditional basics while remembering the nostalgia and history that surrounds the building. This becomes evident in the use of natural stone tile, warm woods and stainless steel accents. This transitional style is achieved by juxtaposing a warm atmosphere with the idea of an urban loft by using clean lines, geometric design, and a harmonious combination of color and pattern. Each finish was chosen to represent the essence of Steamboat. A mountain town full of history that embraces modern luxuries while preserving a feeling of serenity and simplicity. The main living area has a large flat screen TV with surround sound, a gas-burning fireplace, wood floors accented by gorgeous rugs, and modern comfortable furniture. The kitchen is well equipped for even the most discerning chef. The master bedroom offers a king bed and an attached bathroom. The second bedroom features a queen bed and there is a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. The deck has a gas grill, outdoor furniture and great views of the Yampa River and Howelsen Hill making it a great place to view the fireworks during July 4th or Winter Carnival.

Left on 01/23/2014 for a stay in January 2014 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Jan 23, 2014Stayed Jan 2014
Have stayed at Howelsen Place the last two years and cannot recommend a better location if you want to experience downtown Steamboat. There are numerous good restaurants/bars to experience within very short walking distance.
The condo itself is top notch with everything you need including heated covered garage parking if you have a rental car. A rental car is not really necessary as the local shuttle service is very good and this location again is within walking distance to the best spots in town. One thing that disappointed me was the lack of better heat in the bathrooms. Why they didn't put radiant heat in the bathrooms is ridiculous when you look at how much it must have cost to build out these condos. Also the linens in this particular unit were no where near as nice as the unit I stayed in last year...maybe one is under private ownership and the other not?
Check in and check out was painless and the Steamboat chamber bucks we received were a nice bonus and put to good use at the local establishments.
Will definitely return to this location and recommend to anyone looking for the finest in downtown Steamboat.
