My Stay At Hampton Inn & Suites Boulder-North

I was given a room to review, but I was not paid for this post.  All opinions are always my own.

Hampton_Inn_Suites_BoulderA hotel can make or break a whole racecation (race vacation).  I recently visited Boulder, Colorado for the first time to run the BolderBOULDER 10k.  The race is the 4th largest in the US with 50,000 runners.  With that big of a race finding the right hotel is key. I stayed at the Hampton Inn & Suites Boulder-North.  I’ll just start by saying it was FANTASTIC!  It completely exceeded all my expectations.  

Hampton_Inn_Studio_KingI had a King Studio Suite and the first thing I did when I walked in was text my husband a picture of the room saying, “I might never come home.”  The king size bed was dreamy.  I wanted to stay in it forever.

There was a vanity and sink outside of the the bathroom, which had a shower/tub combo.


Having a kitchenette is always a bonus on a race weekend.  It had a bar sink, microwave, coffee maker, and mini fridge.  

Hampton Inn & Suites Boulder-North was only about 6 miles from the race.  It was perfectly situated away from the course, so I didn’t have to deal with road closures when I drove in.  I easily found parking both at the hotel and at the race.  


One of my favorite parts though is the breakfast!  Hampton Inn & Suites is known for their hot breakfast in the morning.  I was in one of the first waves for the race start though and needed to leave the hotel at 5:30am.  When I went in the lobby to head to my car they had a bagged grab and go breakfast for the runners, since some of us had a very early start!  In it was a breakfast bar, muffin, apple, bottled water, and even napkins.  They thought of everything.  I run a lot of races around the country and it is rare to have a hotel take such great care of the runners like Hampton Inn & Suites Boulder-North did.


Side note: I’m totally obsessed with the coffee jackets they have!  My coffee looked like such a tourist race morning. 🙂


Hampton Inn & Suites Boulder-North has a great indoor pool and hot tub. 


They also have a very nice fitness room.

Hampton Inn & Suites Boulder-North was fantastic.  It was the affordable, friendly, clean, convenient, and exceeded all my expectations.  I definitely recommend this hotel if you are heading to the Boulder area.
