“Nice downtown hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

Very nice downtown hotel. Clean, comfortable room, very nice staff and within walking distance to just about everything downtown. Would we stay here again--not sure. We'd probably check out other hotels just because if we don't absolutely love a place, we keep checking out other places.

We were made welcome by the staff as everyone was smiling and helpful. Gave us a goodie bag and bottles of water at the desk. Room was good sized, comfy bed, clean. Clean bathroom. Not fancy but, just right. Good restaurant/bar. I'd recommend to anyone who doesn't need a big hotel.

I really enjoy Hotel43. It is downtown so most of the good restaurants in Boise are within walking distance. One of the city's best restaurants, Chandler's, is attached. (definitely the best bar) The staff are always attentive, helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean, quiet, attractive and the beds are comfortable. One thing that irritates me on occasion is that the rates can be highly variable. I guess that is business and it is hard to blame them if they raise the rates when there is a big event in town. Normally the rates are very reasonable especially given the convenience of the location. It is only 15 minutes to the airport and you are, as I said before, in the middle of the downtown,.

Room Tip: If you want quiet and are quiet, then ask to be on the floor with the airline crews.

located downtown within easy walking distance of the capitol, shopping, restaurants, greenway, museums - Hotel 43 is a wonderful place to stay. this is a nice botique hotel that has a different feel than the typical chain hotel. the staff is efficient and very friendly. the rooms are very clean, comfortable, and quiet. the appointments are somewhat modern. bathroom is smallish but had plenty of counter space and the shower head provided a great shower. attached to the hotel is chandler's restaurant. with a great bar, this is one of the best restaurants in boise. valet service is quick and inexpensive. hotel has an agreement with the nearby YMCA to allow guests to use its facilities - easy walking distance, great facility with plenty of classes (this has become one of my wife's favorite places to go when we visit). the only knock i had was the bed was a bit soft - but no so much that it hindered my ability to sleep. highly recommend this hotel.

Are you the kind of person who doesn’t want to touch the bedspread in your hotel room? I’m that person, I admit it. If you’re that person, I have a hotel room for you where you would feel comfortable lying naked, right on top of the bed. It’s so clean, it’s pure.

Hotel 43 in Boise Idaho has PURE rooms - for those with sensitivities to airborne particles, or funky bedspreads. PURE rooms are treated with a cutting edge process that cleans the air and the surfaces. There is even an air purifier in the room. Maybe it’s psychological, but I felt very calm in this room. Yes, I sat down on the bed naked. But it must be said that the bed didn’t really have a bedspread on it. Rather, it was a throw over the sheets. Yes, I did move it aside before I sat. I’m working on it.

The room is contemporary and furnished with red accents. Nice lamp. The sophisticated feel of the style made me feel like I was in a bigger city when we stayed here -- but then I looked out the window and there was small city Boise. The Capitol Building, just down the block.

The added benefit to Hotel 43 is that it has the best restaurant in Boise inside the hotel. Chandler’s Steakhouse has one of the only reliably great menus in town. Every time I’ve eaten there, my meal has been great. Whether it’s steak or scallops or the beautiful Ceasar salad.

And the bar is especially elegant, very big city, very grown up. I usually order a gimlet with Koenig (Idaho) vodka. You can’t go wrong with a gimlet at Chandler’s. And they have live music, usually jazz, that makes the place really swell.

Stayed here on a business trip. Good location and very quiet. Internet access is included as it should be. Room was nicely appointed and everything was clean and well kept. Staff was friendly and accomodating. Closet configuration is a bit strange as it faces the bathroom sink so when the closet doors are open accessing the sink and walking into the shower area can be a bit tight. The lighting in the sink and shower area could use a bit of a boost, but that is really the only improvement I can think of at this time. Hotel is walking distance to a number of restaurants in the area so it has a great convenience factor. The restaurant in the hotel Chandlers has live jazz every night so it's very convenient to take a quick break in the evening. I enjoyed my stay here and will come back on my next trip.

Room Tip: If you are going to hang out in the main downtown area you may not even need a car here.
