The location is OK -- not close to Pearl St Market, but reasonably close to 29th st market. The rooms are clean, but nothing to write home about (no refrigerators in rooms, for example). The "concierge breakfast" (for which you pay extra) is way subpar. They nickel and dime you for everything (parking, internet). The friendliness of the staff is hit-or-miss. However, the reason I give them the lowest rating possible is that they systematically overbook rooms. My husband, 10-month old son, and I were staying in town for the week and had to move to a hotel for the last 3 nights of our stay because the very nice B&B where we had been staying was booked for our remaining days. Boulder Marriott had held the Friday-through-Monday reservation with a credit card, and the booking system had warned us that our card would be charged if we did not cancel before 4pm, so we assumed our reservation was safe. When we arrived after hiking all day in the Rockies they informed us that there were no rooms for us. "How could that be since we had already reserved with a credit card?", we asked. We were told that it is Marriott policy to overbook. So we got "walked" from the Boulder Marriott property to a Marriott Residence Inn to the north of town for that first night. This was kind of a pain, since we had chosen Marriott Boulder specifically for the location. This also caused quite a bit of irritation for our 10-month old son who really wanted to get to bed at that point. The next morning we packed up all our stuff and moved back to the Boulder Marriott for the remaining two nights of our stay. Boulder Marriott did pay for our one night stay at the Residence Inn, but given that we weren't excited about the location and the amount of extra packing/unpacking we had to do, it really wasn't worth the hassle. This experience has kind of soured me to the Marriott brand. If I stay in a Marriott again, I'll be sure to book 6 rooms and cancel 5 at the last minute, just to reduce the chances of my being "walked" from the property again.
My parents stayed here (Canyon and Folsom location) and had no complaints. Rooms with the best view of the mountains are on the south side. Don't stay at the Marriott Residence Inn (needs updating, not near anything). Have heard the Marriott Courtyard on the Foothills parkway is ok, but not near any of the sights either since these two hotels cater to business travelers who want to be in that part of town. Zolo Restaurant, which is nearby, has a southwestern menu (duck tacos, etc) and very popular with locals.
Marriot was quite an uneventful hotel to stay at. There's a movie theater and some fast food restaurants near by, but a bit too far from the center area. The room was huge, but otherwise this could have been any other hotel.
The hotel was nice, but nothing extraordinary. It was up to Marriott's usual standards and is located close to the Pearl Street Mall, but other than that, there was nothing extraordinary about the place or its location.
