Our Thirtieth anniversary stay was fantastic. Well appointed room with super bath and bedding appointments. With Chandlers Steak house in hotel you are next to one of the finest restaurants in Boise. Room was quiet and the staff helpful and friendly. We will do this again.

Stayed one night here. Cool lobby, nice front desk reception, quick check in. Nice wide hallways. Cozy rooms, modern furniture and very comfortable beds. Restful night. Loved the bar at Chandlers for a cocktail before retiring for the evening. Definitely would stay here again on our next trip to Boise.

Hotel 43 has quickly become my favorite hotel in Boise. The location is perfect, within walking distance to the downtown restaurants/shopping and entertainment. The front desk staff has consistently been friendly and willing to go the extra mile for thier guests. I love the ambience of the hotel. Bright red walls, modern furnishings. The hotel is wonderfully quiet. We were put on a floor that included a sign indicating that this floor included "day sleepers" and reminded people to respect the noise levels. The rooms are a good size. The rooms look like they receive a thorough cleaning after every guest. The beds are SO comfortable, with nice soft linens. I truly look forward to climbing in for a good nights rest! Excellent WIFI connection. Flat screen tv, bathrobes, hairdryer, iron, coffee maker, lots of outlets to charge your electronics... I could go on and on. I tend to like to keep my rooms cool and I don't sleep well if the rooms are too warm. At Hotel 43 you have control over your thermostat, which is a huge plus in my book. Hotel 43 offers valet parking, however the self parking is easy in the attached garage. The only constructive criticism I could offer is that I wish there was a bit more variety of dining options available at the hotel. However as stated above a short walk and you have plenty of dining options to choose from. Looking forward to my next stay!

First of all the bed. If I could give a 6/5, I would. For me, who prefers a bed on the softer side, this was a perfect place to stay.

Now for the rest. Easy to set up WiFi. Nice rooom layout. Great front desk service - went the extra mile, including giving directions and photocopying without charge.Chandlers Restaurant next door is good eating, and the cafe next to reception was fine. And oh did I say great front desk service.

On the slight negative side, the stairway is not easy to find and the valet attendant seemed distracted (maybe underemployed). But those are minor niggles in the scheme of things.

Hotel 43 sits within a seemingly older building (circa 1980s, probably), but was completely renovated when it became Hotel 43. The room is well-appointed and contains modern fixtures and pretty chic decor, but the layout and exterior definitely feel dated. The central color theme of the decor (in-room, hallways, elevators, lobby) is red -- which is a bit overwhelming and in-your-face for a hotel. Furthermore, they claim to be a "boutique" hotel, but all the rooms are pretty identical, so it doesn't quite meet the traditional "boutique" definition.

Otherwise, the staff is exceptional. When I stayed at Hotel 43 for a job interview, the company had left a welcome packet for me at the front desk, which the hotel staff was happy to give to me upon check-in. Prices are reasonable for the smack-in-the-middle-of-downtown location -- less than $100/night. Parking was available in the attached structure at no additional cost. Entire property is very clean and quiet. Easily walkable to many shopping and dining options downtown, BoDo area, Century Link Arena. A bit too far to walk to Boise State University.

Would highly recommend for business travelers and couples.

The Grove Hotel was sold out so I called the Boise Commerce and asked about an equivilent hotel and they suggested Hotel 43. The rooms are nice, bed and bedding very comfortable - sheets are NOT starchy and stiff. A teddy bear is placed in each room for that 'homey" feel.
The restaurant is excellant - live jazz music 6 days a week! Walking distance to convention center, shopping and all kinds of great ethnic restaurants.

Room Tip: Try and get a room above floor two so you don't see the lower level roof.

Our two night stay was for a conference scheduled at the adjacent Boise Center, so we were in and out a lot. There is much to say for a small hotel so well placed in the center of everything. The staff was wonderful, and the only negative comment I might make was the doors were really loud. I never heard the other guests, but I did hear their doors slam.
On the bright side, their mattress is to die for! Comfortable, but not too soft. Just a cradle to take you off to sleep. Very nice stay.

Room Tip: Rooms are not large, just cozy.
