Residence Inn by Marriott Boise Downtown/City Center


Often overlooked by meeting and event planners, Boise, Idaho, is a vibrant city that should be on their radar. The lively downtown with a wide variety of shopping, dining and entertainment options is compact and walkable.

Located only blocks from the Idaho State Capitol building and a five-minute walk from Boise Centre, the Residence Inn by Marriott Boise Downtown/City Center can be a comfortable and convenient home base for visitors to Boise. The facility’s 185 spacious suites are especially inviting for multi-day guests looking for a comfortable space in which to relax after a long day of meetings.

The venue offers four meeting and event rooms that total 4,748 square feet of space. Overlooking downtown Boise, the Capitol and Depot Rooms can accommodate up to 110 and 80, respectively. These two rooms can be combined to hold up to 195 in a theater-style arrangement. The large windows provide an abundance of natural light and dramatic views of the downtown area.

Adjacent to the Capitol and Depot Rooms, the RoofDeck is an inviting fresh-air space. With barbeque pits, a fireplace and comfortable furnishings, this patio area is ideal for a post-meeting reception. The RoofDeck can accommodate up to 150, allowing groups to take advantage of Boise’s mild summer evenings.

Additional rooms are available to serve as hospitality suites and breakout rooms. The venue offers full-service on-site catering, the latest in audiovisual equipment, and complimentary WiFi is available throughout the facility. The tenth-floor Dunkley Room offers sweeping views and elegant furnishings that can provide the setting for a corporate retreat, seminar or training session.

The Boise region offers a wide range of post-conference exploration and team-building opportunities. From biking on the Greenbelt that runs along the Boise River to a guided whitewater rafting trip on the Payette River, the outdoors beckons. Aquatic thrill seekers will want to check out the Boise Whitewater Park for surfing and kayaking action.

Groups can explore the area’s Basque heritage at the Basque Museum, find inspiration at the Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial or enjoy cultural exhibits at the Boise Art Museum. All these attractions are located a short distance from the Residence Inn.

The Hotel is located in the center of Boise, less than five miles from the Boise Airport. A free 24-hour shuttle service provides easy access for visitors arriving by air.
