There are several options to get to Boulder from the airport:
Linked are driving directions for taking the E-470 Tollway ($8), or I-70 from the airport to the hotel. The tollroad is quicker and has less traffic than I-70. Most rental car companies have toll passes in their rental cars so toll charges will be paid through the rental agencies.
