Grove Hotel opens new terrace with dining & event options overlooking Downtown

The Grove Hotel took the wraps off the revamp of its fourth-floor terrace this week.

As we reported in March, the upgrades are aimed at making the area friendlier for guests.

The outdoor area used to require tents to shade from the sun during the hot summer months in Boise. A new permanent structure brings sails to the deck that allows for more regular events.

The area will also be open to all hotel guests – who can order from the hotel’s in-house restaurant, Trillium. Non-hotel guests can also enjoy the area, but a hotel spokesperson says that is not an immediate focus.

New seating areas, fire pits and plantings soften up the terrace. Hotel rooms along the fourth-floor on the terrace side now have a small outdoor area with seating.

Outdoor views include the Boise Depot to the south, as well as an increasingly urban downtown area and the Boise foothills to the north.

The hotel expects to host more weddings and events with the upgraded space.

Outside of private event times, the terrace is open daily from 7am-10pm, with service from a dedicated menu from Trillium offered from 11am-9pm.

Building permits value the upgrades at $176,000. The revamp is the latest change to the property including the new Trillium restaurant, upgraded lobby and more.
