My bride and I celebrated our 25th anniversary at this property. We chose it because of its central location, price and amenities.
We were promptly checked in and directed to parking ($8 a night) and went up to our room, a concierge king. The room was clean and appointed as most all Marriott rooms are appointed. The couch was a bit dilapidated, but serviceable.
The concierge lounge, while "closed" on weekends did have sodas, water, snacks and light breakfast available - once I figured out which door my key worked in.
The front desk staff were always friendly and knowledgeable about the area attractions and had directions and helpful hints available. I did try to use the "business center" once, but it was occupied. Basically a phone booth with a computer and printer in it. Most people travel with their computers and stuff and so don't really use these a lot. I didn't bring mine and needed to make another reservation. The front desk connected me to Marriott reservations and I made my next reservation that way. Simple enough, but I prefer online booking.
The hot tub and pool were well attended at this hotel. We did use both and had a bit of trouble getting the hot tub turned on (PPPPUUUUUSSSSHHHHH that button, son, PUSH I say!) but it was quite enjoyable once we got it going.
We had drinks and hors' devours in the bar one evening and while not cheap, the food was incredible! Granted they were only appetizers, but amazing none the less! We almost canceled our dinner plans and stayed there for dinner.
The exercise equipment was also well used and showed it. Both treadmills had to be "rebooted" to make them work every time a person went to use them.
Overall, a comfortable stay at a property that this chain can be proud of! Well done, people, well done.
As a side note, I will add that we chose this location due to convenience. There are a TON of neat eating options within a short walk/drive. (Boulder is a pretty pedestrian friendly city, but people still drive like crazy. ) So, become acquainted with the immediate area and you will be able to eat five or six times a day and not encounter the same place twice.
