As a Marriott frequent traveler, I chose this over the Courtyard for a recent trip to Boise, and I wasn't disappointed.
On a scale of 1-5, with 1 being very tired and 5 being brand new, this Residence Inn is a solid 4. I was upgraded to a "penthouse" which is a unit with a small kitchen, a sitting area, a room with a queen-sized bed and a loft with a king.
The breakfasts were a little above average (in addition to the usual cereals, fruit, eggs and meat there was usually some sort of "sandwich" option - like a sausage and cheese biscuit or a breakfast burrito) and while they also had mid-week evening events I usually was out so I can't comment on them.
The best part of this hotel is the shuttle service - if you are in town for business, you can skip renting a car. Most days I just walked the mile or so to the State Capitol (follow Capitol on the hotel side until you cross the river and it will turn into 9th - cross the street toward 8th, etc. and you will be the heart of downtown) but on days where it was raining I just hopped in the shuttle for a quick ride downtown. Considering how bad parking can be, this is a huge plus.
In short, I'd stay there again.
