This is a nice hotel but it is still a work in progress. There were maintenance crews doing quite a bit of painting in several corridors and they were planning to recarpet as well.

It's an old garden-style hotel, with a complicated layout and a maze of rooms that backs up to the Boise River.

The pool area is nice with a kids fountain area but the hot tub was broken and never fixed. They have a pétanque court, similar to bocce, but there was no equipment in the bin. Sad face. There's also a giant chessboard with the pieces to play.

The room was nice but it's age shows with the thermostat circa 1970 and some of the trim. The linens and tv were updated, but the furniture was dated. My room had a desk, but my sister's room had a round conference table.

Food-wise, I ate catered hotel food for a conference for three days. The food is lacking and average. Our dinner banquet was a prime rib cooked a shade above medium, which was disappointing. We had a catered breakfast which served the same thing everyday.

I did eat at the Sandbar Cafe, a separate cafe on hotel property that sits next to the pool and backs up to the Boise River Greenbelt.

Service was nice and pretty attentive. They were flexible about a late checkout when it was really slow and the hotel does offer shuttle service.

Location wise, it's nice that you're by the river, but that's about it. Boise public transportation sucks and is inconsistent, and the bus stop into downtown is a half mile hike away. Dining options are very limited around the hotel. Payette Brewing is a short walk around the block but crossing Fairview is a bit dangerous without any crosswalks nearby. Your other options are the Stagecoach Inn steakhouse and Joe's Crab Shack outside of the hotel.

I would definitely come back but rent a car.
