The hotel catered for us, housed us as well as our guests, and provided set up and take down for us. Our wedding was such an amazing experience and the Catering Sales... More

We found the staff at the Riverside Hotel to be above and beyond what we've found elsewhere in the country. The room, overlooking the Boise River, was exquisite. We would highly recommend this to anyone interested in staying in Boise's hub, with quick access to downtown hot spots. A great hotel in deed.

Staff, especially Anna, was very nice to me when I woke to a car battery problem. The hotel is located between downtown and the interstate in a nice neighborhood. The hotel seems popular with locals for its meeting rooms and restaurant.

The best way to start your stay at The Riverside is to check in and be serviced by Korry. She greets you with a warm smile, knows the ins and outs of the property, is willing to answer your questions and sends you to room with one of the hotel's signature cookies. The layout of the hotel is very tricky... More

Hotel looks a little older on outside but rooms are really nice and clean. They give you coupons for each person for breakfast buffet each morning and a coupon for free appetizer at grill. Buffett was a full Buffett and food was good. On weekend days they also offered prime rib and ham as well as a few brunch items.... More
