Friendly staff, clean rooms, fabulous breakfast buffet. Stayed in winter, but may come back in summer to enjoy outdoor pool and the Sandbar. Had a nice view of the Boise River. My only concern is that the property is so big, it was a long walk from our room to the lobby restaurant area, but no biggie if you're fit...

Came here for a conference and have mostly positive things to say about the hotel. The room was spacious with a large tub. Never heard noise from surrounding rooms. The conference rooms were comfortable and the food at our luncheon was actually really great! A couple minor negatives- the lay out of the hotel is awkward which requires you to...

Thank you for staying at The Riverside and for sharing your views with future travelers. We do have a lot of conferences at The Riverside and I am happy that you enjoyed yours. I am glad that you liked so many features of the hotel. I can't argue that The hotel is a bit spread out. That is good and...

Room was spacious and bed was comfy (which is super important to me). Was staying for a work related conference and I found the hotel to be set up strangely; requiring a lot of walking to get to the main lobby from our room- which wouldn't be a bad thing except that it would have been nice to be able...

The only suggestion to improve is for parking. Scheduling two large groups at the same time ties up ALL the parking that is close to many rooms. I don't like having to walk a mile to get to my room when a large party is going on.

Very comfortable clean bed, and outdated but great shower and tub. Otherwise not good service and very outdated. TV didn't work, and when I called they told me someone could be there in 35 minutes. Super slow internet, not possible to work. Poor insulated rooms.

Thank you for staying at The Riverside and thank you for taking time to write a review. I am so sorry that you felt the hotel only rated a mediocre. That is certainly not the feeling we want our guests to have about The Riverside. We are currently working on several major renovations to update the property and we will...

Ok, We just had the best time at the Sapphire Room in The Riverside Hotel on Chinden Avenue in Boise, Idaho: We went to an amazing jazz evening in memory of Phil Garonzik, one of the foremost jazz musicians in the United States: The jazz musicians appeared to honor Phil who was both a player and a teacher of young...

Thank you for your kind review. I am so glad you enjoyed your evening. The Sapphire room is a great venue and I am happy that you got to experience this jazz event that also helped to raise money for a good cause. I must agree with you about Sara.

I enjoyed the Bar and bar menu with live music. Excellent venue and good people coming in to chat with. Very accommodating all around. Too bad hot tub and pool was under construction .

Awesome Hotel , the best in Boise! Service is always great and the room is so comfortable. Love the view of the river from the bed. Located in the heart of Boise right on the Boise River and next to the green belt and close to the new water park.

We were having cabin fever so decided to stay a night at Riverside and enjoy the hot tub. Stay was very nice. Hot tub experience was excellent. Onsite resesturantf food selection was okay but didn't stand out. There was minimal food choices on the menu.

Room was great and service was exceptional! Our party booked a banquet room upstairs and the dinner and service was great. It is the second time we have booked our banquet there - looking forward to doing it again next year! Epic breakfast!
