Hotel developer Pennbridge Lodging has applied to for a building permit to construction a Marriott branded Element and AC Hotel in downtown Boise, Idaho. The hotel would be 15 stories tall and add 296 rooms within a mile of Boise’s convention center. The site is 1011 W. Grove St., across the street from the J.R. Simplot Co.’s headquarters in a parking lot that used to be home to the Boise Farmers Market. Pennbridge first bought the property in 2020, Smith said, but held off when the COVID-19 pandemic hit. The company began to move ahead in 2022, when it started designing the hotel. The lobby 15 floors below will be shared with both Marriott brands. Floors 2 through 4 will contain 260 parking spaces, floors 5 through 7 will be home to 121 Element rooms, and floors 8 through 14 will include 175 AC rooms. Pennbridge plans to start construction in September. Okland Construction, is the general contractor. Jared Smith is cofounder of Pennbridge Lodging.
