IHG's Holiday Inn brand has opened a new property in Nampa, Idaho. Designed by Boise-based Kieffer Design Group, the Holiday Inn Nampa Idaho was created to evoke an upscale farmhouse, with design elements selected to complement the surrounding environment.
The property is eco-friendly, with Kieffer Design Group using reclaimed wood from nearby barns on the back wall and overhead canopy at the front desk, and in the hotel’s restaurant, Burger Theory. Fabrics made with recycled materials were selected for their sustainability, and all lighting is LED for energy efficiency.
Many technological features can be seen throughout the hotel, such as an interactive TV in the elevator lobby, a media hub, and USB ports in all of the furniture. Guestrooms have LED electric mirrors, while headboards have ambient light.
The furniture in the guestrooms provides extra storage. A built-in amenity unit, under a patterned wall, has hooks and drawers for items, and connects to a padded bench. There are galvanized metal trays behind a chicken wire door and pull out to allow access to coffee and the ice bucket. The television is mounted to the unit to allow for optimal counter space below. Rocking chairs replace the standard lounge chair. There are also local artwork and a herringbone patterned headboard.
Burger Theory has a long community table and built-in booths made of reclaimed wood and equipped with charging ports. There are multiple televisions in the room. The terrace off the restaurant has two shaded cabanas with lounge furniture, a fire pit and cocktail tables, as well as planters and accents scattered throughout.
