With competition for hotel-goers heating up, the Grove Hotel plans a revamp of its lobby.

“We plan to update the hotel’s first level, including our restaurant, lobby, bar and front desk,” Grove Hotel Managing Partner John Cunningham said.

A building permit has been filed with the City of Boise for $1.18 million in work to give the area a complete cosmetic upgrade. A new wrap-around bar and lobby library are planned in addition to upgrading the overall look.

“Updating the hotel is an ongoing, never-ending process,” Cunningham said. “We felt it was time to reinvest for our guests, to keep our product fresh and current.”

The Downtown Boise hotel market has boomed in recent years, with the addition of the Hyatt Place, Residence Inn by Mariott, Inn at 500 Capitol, the pending opening of a new Hilton Garden Inn and plans for a Home2 Suites underway. In all, more than 700 rooms have been or will be added to the market

The Grove is working to keep its place in an expanding market.

“Our guests have high expectations when they visit our hotels and CenturyLink Arena. As a result, we plan to keep reinvesting in these properties to meet those high expectations.”

The project should start in late July and be wrapped up in September.
