My wife and I went to Boise for a wedding last week. We submitted a bid through Priceline for a 3-star in Downtown Boise and wound up with good value at the Residence Inn by Marriott. The location was convenient to the wedding reception at the Zoo Boise of all places. Also nearby were Boise State University and the many government offices.
The staff at the Residence Inn was consistently outstanding, especially at the front desk and the dining area. Daily breakfast was good, somewhat varied daily and all you could eat. We got a free buffet dinner one evening including beer/wine. The room we had was large and included a full kitchen and fireplace. Furnishings were adequate, but not plush. The room was quiet except for very slight noise from the room overhead and the furnace coming on at night. The bed was reasonably comfortable, but the pillows were marginal. There was one PC with Internet access. It wasn't speedy and occasionally locked up. Still, we were able to check-in for our return flight and print our boarding passes.
We visited another family member staying at the Hampton Inn/Spectrum in West Boise. The furnishings there were considerably more plush, but the room itself was considerably smaller and with no kitchen or fireplace. The Spectrum/Mall area has newer stores and restaurants than where we stayed. We enjoyed our time at the Residence Inn, especially at a favorable Priceline rate.
