The renovation sought to blend the guestrooms with the rest of the lodge by incorporating the same natural materials found in the surrounding forest and mountains. The design team drew additional inspiration from the region's mountain homes and the spirit of the central Idaho town, creating an environment that has a connection to the outdoors. Purples, grays and browns accent woods and natural textures included. The rooms' patios or balcony doors now have an all glass partition. Other additions to the rooms include sliding barn doors to separate the living and sleeping quarters, as well as finishes such as brushed copper, green marble and carpeting including a tree-inspired print to complete the natural ambience.
Other updates include: new headboards with built-in reading lights, nightstands and end tables with power outlets, 46 inch flat screen HD TVs that supplement the 32 inch units already in each suite, new mattresses and upgraded linens.
System upgrades include an overhaul of the in-room HVAC as new heating and cooling units with INNCOM by Honeywell's energy management system were installed in each room. Innovative Saflok RFID door locks were also added with integrations to both the in-room environmental system as well as the hotel's property management system.
The Shore Lodge room renovation was completed by Boise-based McAlvain Construction.
