First trip to Boise, so this hotel was a stab in the dark. Excellent choice as it turned out. Very clean and bright. The breakfast is an outstanding buffet. The breakfast room is very bright and roomy. Every member of the staff is outgoing and extremely helpful.
A front desk clerk responded to my question about where was the the nearest Kinkos to make a bunch of not-so-simple copies by insisting that I let her do it. Done immediately and well; no charge. Everyone was like that.
Our suite, $194/night, was the first real, roomy suite we've managed to book on line for a while. Three full rooms - two en suite queen bedrooms separated by a very large kitchen sitting room (with its own queen hide-away. The kitchen has full stove, dishwasher, micro and a full sized refrigerator/freezer. Dishes, pots, you name it. Three televisions and a fireplace in the sitting area.
There's a lot to clean with two baths and a full kitchen. Those, plus the carpeted area, must reach nearly 500 sq. ft. But the baths and the kitchen areas were very clean, even the corners and hard to reach spots.
When we were there there was a mix of families and traveling business men and women. The nights were quiet and peaceful.
There is a decent sized indoor pool - very clean and bright; and a small but fresh smelling and new looking workout room.
The hotel is located pretty much in the middle of the metro-area, maybe a minute from the intersection of 194 and 94, seconds from Cole Street and a 5 minute walk from Boise Town Center Mall. Not that we're mall folks, but it will give you a sense of where you'll be staying.
Really, compliments to the staff and to the management for running a fine inn here.
Now, I can't disagree with others' comments about the mattresses - not the beds - the mattresses. the beds have nice fresh covers, a flat sheet, duvet and light cover. Fresh smelling and nicely turned out every day. The mattresses are too soft. That's enough said. The management is working on it.
