... of a street downtown. There are yoga studios on every corner and amazing cafés and clothing stores. We found another campground about 25 minutes from town and set up camp. We went back into town for a yummy pub supper and some more wandering. We found an amazing underground pool hall with $6 pitchers and free pool! The campground we found was booked for the weekend so we only got one night out of it and had to pack up again on Friday morning. ...
... been volunteering at the museum for over 20 years now. Due to a high wind storm (30-40 mph winds, some reaching up to 60 mph) that evening, we lost power in our hotel room twice.
The next morning, we headed to Boulder, CO. Along interstate 70 we were able to take in views of the snow capped mountains and drive parallel to the Colorado River. On our journey, we stopped in Vail and Georgetown. The villages ...
... hard way. But really, the decent down where I'd climbed would be hard. I'd hate to slip. You wouldn't stop. With the easing of the track I open up the pace and descend quickly. All in all the track was around 4 miles. I make it back to the car and head back to the apartment. I'm hungry but I also smell. I run into Steve and we get to chatting about this and that and decide to go into town to grab some food and a beer. I quickly shower and I drive us in. We go to ...
... learn on this trip is to just enjoy the moment and not worry about what's going to happen next. It's easy for me to do that because I am alone most of the time and I plan my day and try to control how it happens and how much I can get done. It most often than not doesn't work that way but at least it's planned. I think the great moments passing scare me the most because I want them to last forever and I don't know when the next one will come. I've had to learn a lot of ...
... is reflective of our past year with dad - the highs and the lows - as well as our future without him. It is the end of a journey - both the road trip and our family as we knew it. But just as the sun delivered us a beautiful rainbow in the midst of thunder and hail, I am still ever hopeful of what life has to bring us. I have no doubt that our father's teachings of acceptance ("it is what it is") will continue to provide comfort along the way.

Historical Traveler Reviews Boulder Marriott
I just stayed at the Marriott in Boulder over the weekend of July 15. I was there for a wedding and paid $119.00 a night. Normally, I use Priceline, but at least one of the three hotels in this zone only gets mediocre reviews.
i travel often and i've stayed in a lot of swanky hotels; i was a little worried that this one might not be up to par with my standards. i was pleasantly surprised!
I really enjoyed my stay at the Marriott in Boulder. It helped that I had a corner room with fantastic views of the Flat Iron's. Staff were great, it was clean, and was in a good location.
Although I am used to staying at large hotels, this is a great "boutique" hotel. From the moment I stepped in I immediately fell in love with the hotel's southwestern contemporary decor. I was suprised at just how friendly the staff was, and how they made every effort to accomodate my needs. Unlike some hotels in Boulder I had a wounderful view of the Flatirons from my window, and a complimentary breakfast at their private concierge lounge on the 5th floor (I really liked the big screen t.v.!). I was suprised to find out that every room at the hotel has high-speed internet access, and the lobby plus concierge lounge have wireless internet access. The hotel is definately a step above the competition when it comes to technology. I found the swimming pool and excersise room to be quaint, and to my liking. I even decided to try out their restaurant called JW's Steakhouse, and the food was delicious. Believe me I have traveled all over the U.S. hoping for good restaurants in hotels, but this restaurant is awesome. The steak I had there was juicy, and tender. I definately recommened this hotel for the business traveler, or for anyone who wants to relax.
I have been staying at the Boulder Marriott every time I am in Boulder for a few years now. Recently, I have seen a vast improvement in the hotel. They have recently remodeled the bar area to created an atmosphere that is comfortable for all guests. Instead of eating out I ate in the JW Steakhouse, which turned out to be a great meal as well as a great experience. With the excellent service, beautiful views from the rooms and the concierge lounge as well as the stylish newly remodeled lobby/bar there is no reason not to try the Boulder Marriott. I enjoyed myself and will make the Boulder Marriott my Boulder home base. I had such a good experience at the Marriott I will recommend it to everyone.
We travel to Boulder several times a year and the Boulder Marriott is always part of our visit - the location is fabuolus - walking distance to Colorado University events, and the european feel of " being on the avenue", with beautiful shops and restaurents nearby. We have especially enjoyed special events at the hotel - the food and service were impeccable. The extra attention from the staff always make the visits perfect. A great value with lots of extras.
My husband and I recently spent a few nights in Boulder at the Marriot.
The best of boulder
We have been staying at Marriott Family hotels (Residence Inn, Courtyard, etc) for about 8 years. Whether a Fairfield Inn in Chicago, the Marriott Copley in Boston, or the Boulder Marriott (or Courtyard, or Broomfield Towne PLace), they all share one theing: The people are the very best. We used the Boulder Marriott as ur "headquarters" for our daughter's wedding. Over thirty of our family and other friends stayed here, and all raved about the facility, the food, the location, and most of all the people. On September 25th we will be returning to Boulder for a six-day visit, and will be staying at the Boulder Marriott because when you look at the complete package of facility and people, the price is more than reasonable.
Boulder Marriott is a treasure
I spent four nights at the Boulder Marriott in July 2003, and the stay was excellent. The location is great, the staff helpful and friendly, and the rooms are appealing. There's free access to the internet, and washing machines and dryers on the second floor. There also an excellent restaurant (for breakfast) just across the street -- it specializes in pancakes but all the choices are fine.I recommend the Boiulder Marriot highly. It's one of the best hotels I used in the past year.
An Extrordinary Boutique Hotel
I assumed when I made my reservations for the Marriott Hotel in Boulder Colorado that I would get a clean hotel with good service, the standard for Marriott Hotels.....What a surprise I was in for...The hotel was as not typical of a Marriott,it was more like staying in a W's with impeccable service and an incredible southwestern
decor. The enormous rooms were immaculate, ours had two KING SIZE beds! However without a doubt the best thing about this hotel was the service. I travel more than 120 nights a year, around the world, but I have never encountered a level of sincere, detailed and caring service like I recieved in this hotel. I don't give out compliments freely but this hotel has won me over.
