New hotel planned for vacant lot by Boise Towne Square

A long-empty lot adjacent to Boise Towne Square could see a new hotel project.

Brandt Hospitality applied to the City of Boise to build a four-story, 106 room hotel on a currently grassy parcel between Sears and Margene’s Bridal. The new hotel site sits directly across a service drive from a La Quinta Inn and Suites at the mall.

The applicant did not submit site plans or renderings for the project as of Tuesday morning. The project would include an additional 96 parking spaces on the 2.631-acre site.

Filings indicate the hotel will carry the Fairfield Inn and Suites branding.

In recent months, Brookfield Properties, which owns Boise Towne Square, marketed several remnant parcels around the mall for sale – including the hotel site.

The project will require design review approval from the City of Boise to move forward.
