    Not Really Downtown

    Though it’s listed as downtown, it’s a good 20 minute walk to 8th Street, the most active part of the inner city. It is close to Boise State campus, Julia Davis Park, and the River Walk, so, for us, the location was very good. It has a nice center courtyard which is shady and comfortable. Rooms are spacious and clean as always, with plenty of parking and friendly staff. We redeemed points at a very favorable rate, so it was good value.

    Great Staff!

    I was really pleased with the accomodations made for us by the kind hotel staff. Trenton, the bus driver, was very helpful as we left very early with loads of ski equipment. The fireplace area was lovely and nice wine.

    Clean, helpful and professional staff, nice location

    The Courtyard Boise Downtown is an older Courtyard that was recently renovated, though some of the rooms need further updating; especially in the bathrooms. That's because the bathrooms kept the outdated style of a small sink/wash basin area outside the actual bathroom. Also, the lighting both in the bathroom and the wash basin is pretty bad. In fact, lighting in the entire room was bad with way too many switches and controls that even when turned on weren't adequate. Why they didn't install better, central lighting during renovations is beyond me. Nevertheless, the entire hotel was clean, the staff were always helpful and professional, and the location is very nice and convenient even if it isn't right downtown. It is maybe 2 minutes by car from most things -- be it the university or downtown proper. Scott, one of the supervisors, should become a general manager. He was excellent in all regards. Besides lighting, two things that should be fixed: 1) TVs in lobby seating areas by bistro are outdated and have poor picture quality. 2) No Idaho Statesman newspapers.

    Good visit

    The Courtyard Boise Downtown is a well maintained property. The bed was comfortable. I had plenty of room to spread out and relax in my room. The staff is professional, friendly and helpful. It is conveniently located to sights and restaurants. The house keeping staff did a good job cleaning my room. The air conditioner was a little noisy. I was not bothered by noise from other guests or the street.

    Great rest and service

    This business rest stop provides a wonderfully comfortable bed and quiet environment. Clean, pleasant and friendly staff add to the at home feeling and welcome. Walking distance to shopping and restaurants,once the shuttle drops you off, you can get your personal or noshing needs met and settle in with Starbuck's from the Bistro.
