A new hotel could come to Meridian.
The City of Meridian received an application for an Extended Stay America at 3437 E. Pine Ave.
According to the application letter, the 56,000 square foot hotel would be four stories with 124 rooms and 129 parking spaces. According to the Extended Stay website, these hotels usually have big suits, pet-friendly rooms, laundry rooms, and kitchens.
“We offer affordable suites with fully equipped kitchens and free wi-fi, perfect for a few nights, a few weeks or longer,” the Extended Stay website says. “Whether you’re traveling for business, need temporary housing, military personnel on assignment, a traveling medical professional, or want some time away, our friendly and dedicated staff is ready to welcome you with genuine care.”
Extended Stays typically cater to people planning for a longer trip, and the prices are more affordable.
The exterior of this hotel will have a “natural color scheme,” the application letter said.
“Extended Stay America utilizes varies materials, colors and pilasters, along with a strong entry framed above the first floor to break up the building facade to create an identifiable and inviting building,” the application letter said. “All building entries are covered by canopies on all four sides to provide a consistent and visible demarcation for the visiting public. The exterior utilizes a natural color scheme consisting of a strong bronze, earthy beiges and a white accent.”
There is an Extended Stay America in Boise near the airport. And also underway in Meridian is an Oakwood WaterWalk — another extended stay hotel.
