Home2 Suites by Hilton will break ground this month at Snake River Landing directly south of Stockman's Restaurant, with an opening projected for next summer.

The extended-stay hotel will feature 91 suites for the business or leisure traveler. In Home2 hotels, each suite  features kitchen space with appliances and a flexible working area to allow travelers to get business done in a comfortable setting.

The brand also puts an emphasis sustainability, with recycling containers in every suite, Energy Star rated appliances and interiors created from pre-recycles and post-recycled materials. The bath fixtures are selected to reduce water waste, and the saline-based pool utilizes natural minerals rather than chemicals.

The Idaho Falls Home2 Suites will be owned by B&T Hospitality, a hospitality company based in Idaho Falls that also has the local Hilton Garden Inn in its portfolio. B&T selected Snake River Landing believing the development's "live, work, shop, play" credo complements the Home2 brand.

“Our guests will be staying several nights and are looking for an experience of a home away from home. Snake River Landing’s many walking trails, scenery and easy access to restaurants make it an ideal location for Home2 Suites. We know our guests will love it,” said B&T President and CEO Rusty Townsend in a press statement released today.
