... this particular rock, called Tonnerre, we have to cross the creek.
In order to cross the creek, we have to pull ourselves across ropes that are tied to trees located on both sides of the creek. This is called a tyrolean traverse. We clip our gear and ourselves onto the ropes using carabiners and draws and then pull ourselves along the length of the rope. Talk about a workout!

... universities I have ever seen. The surrounding areas of Boulder seemed to be a bit bland with the usual chain restaurants, but there is a city center where we spent a few hours. The city center has a pedestrian shopping street called Pearl Street. Pedestrian shopping streets tend to be popular in South America and Europe, but I haven't seen many at all in America, so this was a pleasant surprise! The street had cobbled brick for a ...
... Up and up. Clambering over this rocky staircase. I was aware of how hard I was breathing, and my heart was going nuts, but not from the climb itself, as soon as the headaches set in I knew it definitely was altitude. All I needed to do was stop for a few minutes, take some deep breaths and my body would settle to it's normal rhythm. I knew I had to manage this as the air would only get thinner as I climbed. As I ascended I took the time to admire the view, this ...
... for the surprise! I got off the plane and groggily hurried to the bus stop. A second too late and the next one was supposed to arrive an hour later. As much as I wanted to wait in a smog and cigarette congested environment, I went inside to paint under the snow capped mountains of the Denver International Airport. My dad came earlier than expected to pick up the other surprise guest for my mom. It's like God knew that we would be arriving almost at the same time ;) so I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Boulder Marriott
Great Place, good value
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.
The hotel was great. I stayed in Room 214 which faced the mountains as do most of the even numbered rooms. All rooms with King beds, including my room, have a sofa sleeper. The rooms are larger then most Marriott rooms I have in.
There is a fitness center with free weights, an indoor pool and jacuzzi. We didn't use the restaurant, but there is a small coffee area off the lobby. There is also a pancake house across the parking lot that serves good, inexpensive breakfasts.
The staff could not have been friendlier. Also, there is free, underground parking. The hotel is less then 2 miles to the University.
Very Satisfied--I'd Stay Here Again
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!
my room was spacious and clean, as was the rest of the hotel. as someone else mentioned, this is a newer hotel. i had a view of the flatirons too which was a nice bonus. staff was friendly. i ordered room service too--the burger was pretty good.
location seemed fine to me. traffic is a bit of a mess in boulder (not too bad but a little messy), and i thought this hotel put me in a good spot to get to the location attractions like pearl street mall, the flatirons, boulder creek path, and numerous other hiking trails.
the rate seemed a little pricey but so did the other hotels in the area. i would definitely stay here again!
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.
Boulder Marriott: Definately Worth Staying At!
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.
P.S. Essentials Spa is right next door, and although I haven't been there I hear it is one of the top spa's in the country.
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.
Just another Average Marriot
My husband and I recently spent a few nights in Boulder at the Marriot.
We usually stay at the Hotel Boulderado but the entire hotel was booked for a conference so we decided to try the Marriot. After reading a few great reviews at trip advisor we decided to try the Marriot. We were very disappointed to find out that this hotel is just another average Marriot. There is nothing special or botique at all about the hotel.
The rooms were clean and the staff very friendly and helpful but that is about it. The rest of it as all very generic...the location, the decor, the bath products etc. The Hotel's bar & restaurant are scary.
Boulder has some great restaurants, why would anyone eat at the Marriot. The Marriot is fine if you are just looking for a place to spend the night but don't expect much else. Boulder does lack having a great boutique hotel but for now your best bet is the historic Hotel Boulderado.
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.
