A new, as-yet-unbranded hotel is set to pop up across Interstate 84 from the air terminal, making it the sixth just on one single block.

Burgess Investment Group has obtained all the needed sign-offs and a building permit for a new four-story, 37,644 square foot hotel. The project would have 67 guest rooms at the corner of Elder St. and Shoshone St. The filings position the hotel as an extended stay property.

“The form of the building is simple and elegant,” the applicants wrote in a letter to the City of Boise. “The exterior extrusions inform the programmatic organization of the interior. The materiality of the exterior articulates and gives tactile expression to the different planes of the façade. Not only will this be attractive to pedestrians, but will also give a sense of scale by alternating different textures, hues, and materials….”

The new, unnamed property, joins Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Fairfield Inn by Marriott, Hampton Inn & Suites on the block. Burgess manages all of them.

Super 8 by Wyndham, Wyndham Garden, America’s Best Value Inn and Suites and two Comfort Inn properties are located within a few blocks on the north side of the freeway. Several more hotels sit near the airport on the south side.
