Boulder NLP Trainings

Location of All Trainings

All trainings will be held at the Best Western Boulder Inn, located at 770 28th St. Boulder, CO. Trainings are held in one of the two conference rooms (Aspen or Flatirons).

Boulder, Colorado is a lovely college town, nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. It is a popular vacation destination, so there is a lot to see and do. We hope you will enjoy your time in our hometown!

Transportation to the Training Site

Driving Information

If you’re renting a car, the Best Western Boulder Inn is just under an hour drive from the Denver International Airport (DIA). The Boulder Inn estimates 45 mins using the tollway — allow an hour to be sure.

There are 2 good routes from DIA to the Boulder Inn:

Driving Option 1: E-470N (Toll Road)

E-470 North — the Tollway. This is slightly faster, smoother, and completely uncrowded route. The downside is you’ll have to pay the tolls. (As of January 2013, that’s $7.80 for the E470 toll and $3.30 for the NW parkway toll or $11.10 total, for one way.)

DIA to Boulder by tollway

Driving Option #2: I-70W to I-270W to US36W

I-70W to I-270W to US36W. This route is takes 5-10 minutes longer and has more traffic, but it is free. If you’re driving during rush hour, we recommend the tollway. (In rush hour, this route can take up to a couple hours.)

DIA to Boulder via I-70W, I-270W, and US36W

Shuttle service

You can also take a shuttle door-to-door between DIA and the hotel (or wherever you are staying) from Supershuttle. As of January 2013, it is $33.00 one-way and takes about 90 minutes because the shuttle picks up other passengers as well. For complete information and reservations visit Supershuttle’s website or call 303-444-0808.

Airline Travel:  US Travelers: Southwest Airlines often has the most economical flights to Denver from many US cities, but doesn’t show up on the travel search engines.  Look on their website (southwest.com) if you want to check their flights/fares.  Southwest also has great policies: 2 free bags, and if you purchase your ticket online, you can change it at any time without change fees (You only pay more if your new itinerary is more expensive on the day you buy it. I got a credit recently when my new ticket cost less.) You can even cancel a ticket with 48 hrs notice, and use the full amount to buy another ticket (to any Southwest location) at any time within the next year.  Note: Do confirm these policies with Southwest.com.

UK & US Travelers: LastMinute.com has great deals on airfare, both within the US, and from the UK to the US. We recommend checking this site for either last minute or early tickets.

Note: We do not receive any commission for purchases you may make at the above sites. We provide this information just to help you find a good deal.


You can reserve a place at one of the two hotels listed below. Option 1 is our training site, where we have a special group rate. Option 2 is right next door. You are responsible for making your own lodging reservations directly with the hotel and we recommend you do this as soon as the training is declared a “go”.   (At the Boulder Inn you can cancel your reservation without penalty up to 24 hours in advance, and the rates below are guaranteed up to 30 days in advance of the training.)

AAA 2-diamond rating. (Right next door to our Boulder Inn training site) http://www.boulderoutlookhotel.com/

Getting a Shared Room Rate: Do you want to save on room cost by sharing a hotel room with another participant?  The easiest way to do this is to contact some of your NLP-trained friends who may want to attend the training, and register with them.  If you don’t already know someone interested in sharing a room with you, the Boulder Inn is willing to match people up from our training who want to share a room.  It will be your responsibility to decide whether this is something you’ll be comfortable with over the course of the training.

Alternative accommodations: If you search online, you can find many alternate accommodations in Boulder, including some short-term condo or room rentals where you can cook your own food. You would need to rent a car for most of these options in order to travel to the training site.  Check on driving time (or walking distance) to the training site before making a commitment.

Craig’s list: housing, is an online resource where you can search for housing listings, or post a request. Look on Boulder Craigs list: housing. Notice that this link is to the larger “all housing” category. To narrow your search you can click on the drop-down menu for subcategories, such as “rooms and shares,” “vacation rentals,” etc., and you can also post a request under any of these categories. When using Craig’s list, while most listings are authentic, one needs to be aware of the possibility of spammers. Craigs list posts some advice for spotting this, and of course don’t give out your credit card information to anyone you don’t know.


The Boulder Outlook Hotel, directly north of the Best Western Boulder Inn, has a restaurant, and there are 10 other restaurants within easy walking distance, from fast food to Thai, (See map below for these close-in restaurants). The Boulder Inn has no restaurant.

In addition, Boulder is known for its vast array of high-quality restaurants of every kind of cuisine. You can enjoy exploring these options by car, bus, or taxi.  View Boulder Restaurants Webpage.  Our Whole Foods Market has a wonderful deli (located 2.5 miles from training site, 7 mins by car.)
