This was our second stay here but it's definitely a mixed bag. It is convenient to our son's apartment and we needed a second bedroom, but that is one of the problems. The 2-bedroom "penthouse" is not really 2 bedrooms, but rather 1 bedroom and a loft. The person in the loft has no privacy and if folks are in the "living room" area with the lights on and talking, then the person who is trying to sleep in the loft can't. The Residence Inn in Longmont has 2 true bedrooms and is significantly less expensive than the Boulder location, but of course it's in Longmont, not Boulder. That hotel worked out better for us, except for the location.
Another problem is the loud plumbing. I was awakened every morning at 6am by the loud plumbing of the shower next door. Not fun.
We also requested a quiet room not on Foothills Pkwy. Well, they didn't put us on Foothill but they did put us on Valmont, facing a parking lot where there was loud construction going on for several days, all day long. Landscapers were cutting stones...very loud. When I asked why they put us there after I requested a quiet room over 2 months ago, they said that they can't and won't assign rooms when reservations are made, but only when the arrival date comes and they see what's available. So unfortunately there's no way to request a specific room in the buildings not on Valmont or Foothill--they are unable to do that. You definitely take your chances.
The breakfast room is also totally inadequate for the numbers of people who stay there. Best bet is to carry food to your room.
Finally, the staff is very friendly--even if they are unable to do anything about loud plumbing and loud room location.
