From the outside, this looks like a nicely renovated Travelodge. (I seriously think it was) but renovated by some people with really good taste who have traveled a lot. Once you get past the weirdness of your door opening to the great outdoors, the following features are nice:
-Great location downtown, but not in a noisy area.
-The most mind-blowing orange juice and Grapefruit juice every squeezed from fruit.
-Busy and lively bar with bartenders who are passionate about making a good cocktail. For heaven's sake they have two sizes of ice cubes!! If they tweak out about that, you can only imagine the lengths they go to make a good drink.
-Outdoor courtyard with gas and rock fireplaces in the place where the pool used to be
-Very comfortable beds & high end bath amenities from Aveda
-Ceiling mounted shower head in a huge shower.
-Perfect WiFi in the room and elsewhere
-Coffee is excellent
The following things are not so great:
-The shower made a very loud foghorn noise for about 5 minutes after you turn it on.
-Boise is not warm in the winter and thus every time you open the door, the entire room chills
-Desk/work area is way too narrow for serious business travelers who work in their rooms and the work lighting is poor.
-The continental breakfast is minimalist, which turns out to be kind of lame (other than the mind-blowing orange juice and coffee) It is toast, granola, milk and bagels. Period.
Overall, it was a fun place to stay and definitely worth checking out.
