Make yourself at home in our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Boise, the capital of Idaho. In no time you’ll be relaxing on the banks of the Boise River and visiting peregrine falcons in a breeding center for birds of prey.
Guests of our hotels in Boise can explore Boise Downtown—also known as BoDo—from Grove Plaza, the city’s social center. Enjoy free concerts in the Grove in summer. Free self-guided tours of the Idaho State Capitol nearby lead to public galleries overlooking the House and Senate chambers. South of the Grove, the Boise River is shaded by weeping willow trees in Julia Davis Park. Drop into the park’s Boise Art Museum to see works by regional artists, or the Idaho State Historical Museum to learn about the civilizations that settled the state, from Native Americans to Chinese laborers.
On summer Saturdays, the Capital City Public Market fills 8th Street near the Grove with farmers selling fresh produce and artisans offering handmade crafts and pottery. Value-savvy guests at our Boise hotels can browse Downtown boutiques for one-of-a-kind handbags, children’s toys and knitted caps and scarves handmade by local artisans. Boise is home to the largest Basque community outside of Europe, and their BoDo restaurants serve savory lamb stew and salt cod. After hours, kick back in a brewpub with a Boise beer in hand or listen to live music on the intimate stages of many BoDo bars.
Stay in our hotels in Boise to discover Idaho birdlife thriving near the city. Joggers, strollers and bikers can spot geese and blue heron along the 25-mile Boise River Greenbelt connecting the city’s riverfront parks. Our Boise hotels are a short drive from the World Center for Birds of Prey, where researchers raise falcons and condors by hand for release into the wild.
