Inspiration for the Inn at 500 Capitol

The people, the place, the details – the inspiration for the Inn at 500 Capitol

After many travels, some great successes and some less than impressive, Brian Obie of Obie Development began creating a list of things he liked and disliked from his stays at hotels around the nation. A pattern soon immerged and Brian was inspired to create a hotel experience that brings people together to share their travel moments.

“It was the people that came first, then the place,” said Brian. “guests want a contrasting experience and the hospitality industry can do a better job providing this.” Thus, The Inn at the 5th in Eugene, Oregon was created with special attention to the details that Brian appreciated on his previous travels. The success that Inn at the 5th has had inspired Brian to continue bringing travelers together in a new market – Boise.

Brian’s vision of connecting people to places is a perfect fit for the pulsating downtown Boise arts, dining, and recreation scene. With locally sourced elements and employees and prime access to the best of the city, the Inn at 500 Capitol helps curate an authentic Boise experience suited to the individual fascinations of every guest.

Pushed by an unfailing reputation from Eugene, Obie Development’s trademark personality of an engaging, warm, and thoughtful hospitality team will provide a different experience to the recent chain hotel boom in Boise. Thoughtful hospitality anticipates guests’ needs upon arrival and builds a genuine, individualized connection between staff and guests. Staff are aware of the different types of travelers and aim to pamper without being intrusive. Unique amenities such as the butler pantry, angled beds, and a glass of wine upon arrival are the details that made Brian feel like he had the comforts of home, but also add the touch of luxury that topped his lists of best hotel experiences.

Familiar yet upscale, The Inn at 500 Capitol is inspired by travel experiences that pay attention to the people, place, and details. Thanks, Boise for such a warm welcome.
