Rockbridge, AMS Hospitality break ground on Idaho hotel

Rockbridge and AMS Hospitality, in partnership with GWC Capital, have broken ground on the 131-room Residence Inn in downtown Eagle, ID, located within the Molinari Park mixed-use development.

Located in downtown Eagle, a thriving community within the high-growth Boise market, the hotel will feature more than 3,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, a premium fitness center, and a selection of suites to accommodate business and leisure travelers over both short-term and extended stays. The hotel will complement nearly 300 premier apartment units and townhomes, activated commercial space and a public park all within the Molinari Park master development.

“We are very excited to build not only the newest Marriott product in Eagle, but also to bring the Residence Inn brand to this burgeoning market,” said John Cooper, chief development officer, AMS Hospitality. “We firmly believe that the addition of this hotel, and the Molinari Park development as a whole, will be of great benefit to the people and City of Eagle, bringing new jobs, quality housing and purposeful design.”

Ben Pierson, managing director, Rockbridge, added, “The team has been thoughtful in tailoring the project to meet the dynamics of the local market, providing an expanded allotment of premium rooms, as well as elevated fitness, pool, outdoor space and meeting space experiences. We are excited to partner with AMS Hospitality and to expand our relationship with long-term, proven partners like HVMG, the hotel manager, and Marriott.”

“Capital investments in Boise and Eagle continue to grow significantly, and the announcement from Micron to expand their U.S.-based semiconductor manufacturing business into the Boise MSA reinforces our belief that the future is bright for this high-growth market,” added Derek Suarez, director, investments, AMS Hospitality.
