A new hotel is under construction in Boise, but it won’t be a new addition to the downtown skyline.

Guerdon Modular Buildings is constructing a new Mariott TownePlace Suites room-by-room at its plant off Federal Way. As each module is completed, it is loaded up and shipped to Hawthorne, California, a part of the Los Angeles Metroplex near the LAX airport.

There, according to the Daily Breeze, all 354 rooms are coming from Boise:

The rooms come ready-to-go with everything in place, from furniture and appliances down to the mini shampoo bottles and soaps on bathroom countertops.

All they’re missing is bedding that will be added when housekeeping arrives for opening day.

Thank you, Kyle Haugland, for the tip!
