Grove Hotel and Events Center
Originally slated for 13 stories, the structure was increased to 17 stories to accommodate 20 luxury highrise condominiums on the top four floors. This 425,000 sq ft hotel and multi-event center boast such amenities as 250 hotel rooms, a grand ballroom, a three-story restaurant and sports bar with 150 linear feet of plexiglas windows for viewing sporting events, a 225-space underground parking garage, and a Capital Athletic Club. A premier athletic facility, the club houses a basketball court, a 25-meter swimming pool, racquetball courts, sauna, juice bar and pro shop. A 5,000 seat sports arena and ice-skating rink with 21 corporate sky boxes hosts (the Idaho Steelheads and Idaho Stampede franchises). The rink can be broken down in less than 24 hours to facilitate concerts, trade shows and other sporting events.
