Nestled in the heart of downtown Boise at 500 South Capitol Blvd, the Inn at 500 Capitol is a very special boutique hotel and a tribute to Boise’s rich history and community. With its unique design, the Inn is known for its themed rooms—57 in total—each paying homage to Boise and its surroundings. From the beloved Egyptian Theater downtown to the local Basque culture and a celebration of the “City of Trees,” each room tells a unique story about Boise and the community.
Vote on the Next Themed Room
The Inn at 500 Capitol is preparing to add another themed room to its collection, and they are calling on the local Boise community to help determine the new room’s theme. What part of Boise are you most proud of? What element of Boise culture deserves a spotlight?
After careful consideration, the Inn at 500 Capitol has narrowed the options down to three incredible organizations: Treefort Music Fest, the Idaho State Museum, and Freak Alley Gallery.
- Treefort Music Fest (@treefortfest) – Known for its yearly extravaganza of music and creativity that transforms our city into a vibrant playground, no one in Boise is a stranger to this festival. Picture a room filled with Treefort-esque art and drawings.
- Idaho State Museum (@idahostatemuseum) – A time capsule of Idaho’s rich history, this room could feature nods to Idaho’s past and showcase its fascinating history.
- Freak Alley Gallery (@freakalleygallery) – As the largest outdoor, ever-changing mural gallery in the Northwest, it consistently keeps downtown Boise feeling fresh and exciting.
All three are pillars of Boise culture, offering unique aspects of what makes our city so special.
