Live, work & dine, backed by the premise of simple human kindness.
"It seems like every restaurateur [and hotelier] can remember a moment when the food and drink and atmosphere of a [place] were so perfect that, in the moment and in memory, the feeling of euphoria, of optimism, was palpable and persistent." Striving to repeat this with each and every interaction, this historic Boise bastion of inner and outer beauty, make breaking bread, dining & working seem special.

Venue Setting

The historic Owyhee has played an important role in the Boise community, hosting famous politicians, musicians, and other prominent visitors at the Owyhee Plaza Hotel. During its century-long service to the city, this downtown anchor has been a backdrop for many a Boise memory book. Over the years, untold numbers have celebrated life’s most special moments—weddings, anniversaries, and other major milestones—right here. Today, its grand glory preserved, enhanced with modern touches, the thoughtfully re-designed and restored Owyhee has been masterfully converted to feature 36 modern rental apartments, a revitalization of the banquet facilities, 60,000 beautiful square feet of modernized office and retail space, and the reopened rooftop terrace. The “new” Owyhee will surely be treasured and enjoyed as a beloved Boise icon for many years to come.

Venue Features
The Scene:
Kindess @ The Owyhee was designed as a place where, in celebration of any occasion, people can be overcome by great and familiar food and drink, can be overcome by simple human kindness.
Design:
The hotel has undergone numerous renovations throughout the years. The original gold stained-glass dome was removed from the lobby in 1977 and is now installed at the Idaho State Historical Museum, a rooftop garden reminiscent of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon was closed in 1940, and a rather incongruous motel addition was built on in 1960.
