Stay here in Boise. Comfortable, reasonably priced hotel with a welcoming vibe. Attention to detail is an obvious gift of this hotel and the 39 Film Festival was worth watching. A great mix of mid century modern with a hint of Sweden.

We don't have any deals with workout places, but I recommend both the Downtown YMCA and the Gym at 8th and Main.

"Location location location!!!"
"I was warned there might be street noise on Saturday night but I was not disturbed."
"Avoid any room near the outside bar area"
"Think it is difficult to find quiet rooms at night."
"Because of my sensitivity to pets I requested a room that was "pet free", which meant that we upgraded to a king balcony room."
