New six-story hotel in the works for Downtown Coeur d' Alene

 A new six-story Marriott hotel might be on the way to a currently vacant lot in Coeur d' Alene. Bozeman,MT based Providence Development Co. is currently in the planning stages to build the new hotel on the southeast side of the Sherman Ave & Sixth intersection in the Downtown area. Today the lot is mostly unoccupied being used for occasional Downtown festivals and events.

The City of Coeur d' Alene allowed the project to move forward recently by giving an ok at their most recent design review commission meeting but building permits have yet to be applied for. In fact, we're told actual construction is still a few months away with the developer hoping to start construction in July 2024 with a projected opening during the Summer of 2026.

Once built the new hotel will take on the AC Hotel branding, which is a growing brand by Marriott that as of 2020 already had 188 open locations in several countries worldwide. The new AC Hotel Coeur d' Alene is planned to offer 131 rooms with ground floor lobby bar / limited restaurant for hotel guests, fitness center, rooftop bar/lounge with covered outdoor patio for lake views and 3 levels of underground parking.

No general contractor has been announced as of yet, but the architectural work is being done by Richardson Design Partnership of Salt Lake City. This will be Providence Development's first Coeur d' Alene project, however they are also the developer of the soon to be open SpringHill Suites hotel set to open soon in Ponderay,ID.
