When with our kids, our go to hotels are almost always Embassy Suites or Marriott.
This particular Marriott was just fair. The location is horrible, with nothing attractive anywhere around the hotel. Nothing in Boulder is far by car, but if we returned to Boulder, we would definitely look closer to Pearl Street. I believe the Quality Inn is higher rated by TripAdvisor, much less expensive, and very close to Pearl Street. I should have researched the Quality Inn more closely prior to my trip. Don't make the same mistake.
The hotel lobby is modern and the indoor pool is adequate. The gym itself is pretty bare bones. There was free coffee in the lobby in the morning only and there are free newspapers. The breakfast is not included. The breakfast sandwich was pretty good and not expensive, which we had one morning before heading to Rocky Mtn Natl Park. The room was adequate. If you do stay here, I would highly recommend getting a room facing the inner courtyard as this part of the hotel is the most tranquil. Otherwise, you are either facing the parking lot or the highway with the mountains behind the highway.
We enjoyed breakfast at Buff and Lucille and liked Pizzeria Locale.
Royal Arch hike in Chataqua State Park was pretty tough and in retrospect the view at the end was not worth the effort. We did the series of lakes that begins at Bear Lake in RMNP, which was a much easier and rewarding hike. The Trail Ridge Road drive at RMNP was also well worth it as the views were spectacular. Make sure you drive back to Boulder on the peak to Peak. It added only about 30 min and the views/rock formations were very pretty.
