I stayed recently for a few nights at the Boulder CO Marriott (for clarification the Full Service hotel on Canyon). Report as follows: 1) Checkin- I arrived quite late (around midnight)- checkin was quick and fine with friendly staff. No mention of elite anything however I also didn't ask. 2) Room- The room is very clean and is typical Marriott. I don't think there is anything wrong with it- nothing that great either. A couple of things that could be improved on: a) The Speakman shower heads are not very good- install something with higher water pressure b) Light leaks under the door and also noise carries through (door needs to be a little longer)- solve with towel 3) Internet- This is where Marriott is "challenging". $14.95 per day per device for slow internet. Also to get a public IP requires a reboot every 24 hours. At least make it fast if charging so much money and allow for a multi-day option instead of having to login every day. 4) Breakfast- Good. Fast attentive service. Food quality fine. Price/Value ration fine. Coffee was not great however other than that good option (I think it was around $15 per person all-in IIRC). 5) Staff- Great staff. Very friendly and helpful. Hotel highpoint. Note there is also a Starbucks counter in the lobby which doubles as a bar at night. Hotel Lowpoints: 1) Gym is the size of a closet. Pool similar. 2) Internet (see above) 3) Overall value ratio: as with many hotels in Boulder it is quite expensive. The St. Julien (not chain) is in the centre of town which is quite charming and also is a nicer physical property. Particularly if you factor in Internet and breakfast costs both hotels are at/around the $300 mark per night on average for a single room. The St. Julien is the better option at this price point. Lastly, the split Marriott desk thing really bugs me as does the chair which is constantly tilting back (no way to lock Marriott chairs in my experiences). I suggest they have some Marriott execs work a couple of days in that chair and we will have a change in no time.
