More than a year ago, BoiseDev first reported a project to build two hotels on a surface parking lot along Grove St. at 10th St. in Downtown Boise.
Now we have a look at what the project might look like if built.
Eagle’s Pennbridge Lodging hopes to build a Mariott AC Hotel and a second Marriott brand called Element along Grove St. on a site it owns. Pennbridge, owned by Jared S. Smith, previously developed the Residence Inn on Capitol Blvd.
The project would rise 14 stories with a total of 271 guest rooms – 149 for the AC project and 122 for Element. The combined hotel project would be Boise’s largest in terms of total rooms, ahead of the Grove Hotel (234 rooms), but behind Garden City’s Riverside Hotel (300+ rooms).
It appears to be the first Boise-area hotel to include two hotel brands in a single building.
