Located about a 9-minute drive from Boise's city centre just off Highway 20, the Holiday Inn Express Boise Downtown (formerly a Doubletree property) is geared towards road travellers who require a centrally located hotel with a free breakfast and easy highway access.

This non-smoking hotel has 159 air-conditioned guest rooms and suites, each offering free Wi-Fi, cable TV, a coffeemaker, a desk, an iron and ironing board and a hair dryer. Rooms with a microwave, a mini-fridge, a separate bedroom and a sitting area with a sofabed are also available, as are wheelchair-accessible rooms.

Hotel amenities include a seasonal outdoor pool, a fitness centre, a business centre, meeting space, a free continental breakfast and free parking. Pets are not permitted. A complimentary shuttle to Boise Airport (BOI) is available, and guests looking to take advantage of this service should contact the hotel for details.

La Tapatia Restaurant is less than a 1-minute walk from the hotel, while the Boise River can be reached 2 minutes away on foot. Public transit access is also less than a 1-minute walk away. The University of Idaho Boise is roughly a 5-minute drive northwestward, and Vista Village Shopping Center is about an 8-minute drive west. Boise Gowen Field Air Terminal (BOI) is a 12-minute drive southwest.

The Good
There were no recent reviews available for this hotel since it became a Holiday Inn Express (it was formerly a Doubletree property). However, in the older reviews, guests showed positive responses to the hotel's location and views, which are still relevant.

The hotel's location was praised by lodgers, who described it as close to restaurants, Boise River Trail system, highway access and Boise State University. One guest noted, "Downtown, the zoo, and art museum are less than 10 minutes from [the] hotel". Some patrons had complaints about the hotel's location, however (see below).

Reviewers also enjoyed the views of the Boise foothills, the downtown area and a stream from their rooms.

The Bad
As mentioned above, there were no recent reviews for this hotel under its current branding. However, of the older critiques, there were some negative comments about location that are still relevant. 

While the majority of lodgers were pleased with the hotel's proximity to restaurants and Boise State University, a few guests had complaints about the location. They found the hotel to be a little "off the beaten path", and also mentioned it was somewhat confusing to get to. 

Guests also mentioned the hotel may be better suited for those with a vehicle, although public transit access is nearby (under a 1-minute walk from the hotel).
