Location for Our Trainings:

The majority of our 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

Airline Travel:  If you’ll be flying in, the best airport to use is Denver International Airport.

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.) 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.  To search all of the other airline options,

International & US TravelersGoogle has a great flight tool. It’s super easy to use. Includes almost all airlines (except Southwest).

UK & US Travelers: LastMinute.com sometimes has good 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.

Getting from the Airport to the Training Site: From Denver International Airport, you have several choices to get to the Best Western Boulder Inn in Boulder, CO, where the training is held.

1) You can take a Shuttle (see below). Shuttles take you from the airport to your destination. (There are usually stops along the way, but you get door-to-door service.)

2) You can rent a car (see below for Driving Information.)

3) There is also an  RTD bus service from the airport to Boulder. However, the RTD bus route ends at the station in downtown Boulder, and doesn’t stop at our hotel. So you would need to pay for a taxi ride from the bus station to the hotel. For most people the shuttle will work out better.

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). Two shuttle services operate between DIA and Boulder.

1. Green Ride: Green ride is $27.00 one-way (as of July 2013) and will take you right to your hotel in Boulder. For complete information and to make reservations, visit their website, or call 303-997-0238. Alternate phone number: 970-226-5533.

2.  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.

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.

Your Lodging Options:

You are responsible for making your own lodging reservations  and we recommend you do this as soon as the training is declared a “go”.   (We have a special rate at our training site, the Best Western Boulder Inn, and you can cancel your reservation there without penalty up to 24 hours in advance.  The rates below are guaranteed up to 30 days in advance of the training.)

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 find a friend or colleague who may want to attend the training, and register with them. If you don’t already know someone, the Boulder Inn has kindly offered to match people from our training who ask to share a room. Contact the manager directly at Ari Rubin after you’ve made your reservation and he’ll match you with anyone he knows of who is interested in a room share.

2. 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.

www.airbnb.com is a website specializing in connecting homeowners with visitors to a city. You can specify the kind of accommodations you are looking for, and often get a lower price than hotel rates. There are some protections on the airbnb site, (such as satisfaction ratings from previous renters), but with this kind of thing there is always a small risk of some sort of fraud. Our kids regularly use airbnb for lodging when they travel and have been happy with the results.


There are many restaurants within easy walking distance from the training site.  Boulder Inn (where the training is held) has a small restaurant, as does Boulder Outlook Hotel, next door. There are 10 other restaurants within easy walking distance, from fast food to Thai, (See map below for these close-in restaurants).

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.

There is a small Whole Foods in the shopping center close by the training (at Baseline and Broadway), with a small salad bar and deli. Our main Whole Foods Market (located 2.5 miles from training site, 7 mins by car.) has a huge salad bar and large food court with about every kind of food you can imagine.
