The new SpringHill Suites by Marriott, just south of the Marriott Residence Inn, held its grand opening Monday, featuring a ribbon-cutting ceremony by the Greater Idaho Falls Chamber Ambassadors.

The hotel, at 665 Riverwalk Drive, was built by Woodbury Corp., a full-service real estate development and management company based in Salt Lake City, in partnership with McNeil Development, the company owned by brothers Rollie and Lorin Walker, developers of the Taylor Crossing on the River project.

The new 124-room hotel was designed for both business and leisure travelers, a Woodbury Corp. news release said. Amenities include business services, complimentary Wi-Fi, same-day dry cleaning, guest laundry facilities, an indoor swimming pool with whirlpool, an outdoor patio area with a fire pit and a fitness center.

The hotel also has two meeting rooms with more than 1,170 square feet to accommodate gatherings of up to 40 people, with catering available if needed, the release said.

Bjoern Jaeger is the hotel’s general manager.

The new hotel brings 40 full-time jobs and increased tourism opportunities to Idaho Falls, according to the news release. The project also included the installation of a new quarter-mile road along the Snake River through Taylor Crossing on the River, increasing accessibility to the city.

  1. Thanks for your thorough overview of the development. Also notable is that the development sparked completion of "rocking" the city-owned riverbank in front of the hotel. The west riverbank between Pancheri and the railroad bridge is in tip top aesthetic shape. The collective improvements along that stretch of riverbank have turned a civic eyesore into a top-flight community asset.

  2. Urban renewal districts and tax increment financing have made all of this possible, from U.S. 20 all the way to Sunnyside Road. I remember what the west bank of the river looked like in 1988, when the Idaho Falls City Council moved on this. It was the Shilo Inn that kickstarted it.
