Hotel De Paris

Amid Colorado’s booming Silver Rush, Louis Depuy, a seminary dropout and army deserter utilized his knowledge from years as a Paris restaurant apprentice to create a first-class French restaurant and hotel in the mining town of Georgetown. Marvel at the Hotel’s elegant quarters, whet your palette with the elaborate menu (oysters included, and not of the Rocky Mountain variety!) and meet the wealthy businessmen, railroad tycoons and adventure-seekers who found themselves in the Wild West’s lap of luxury.
