The Hotel 43 Grand Opening

Capital City Events was retained by Hotel 43 to coordinate the most fantastic grand opening. It had all the right elements: style, elegance, modern chic and to top it off - fantastic clients. Lisa Benjamin (shown right), the general manager of Hotel 43 was an absolute delight to work with as was her incredible staff. CCE wishes nothing but success to this wonderful hotel.

The appetizers and champagne was provided by Chandlers Steakhouse (the onsite restaurant) and was enjoyed by all. Mayor Bieter was present to kick off the ribbon cutting. Curtis Stigers popped in for a little surprise jam session with the Frim Fram Four. The flowers were incredible and created by Al at Boise Floral Co. Al is amazing and also has the cutest little dog named Gucci (spoiled rotten). Chair massages were offered courtesy of Napoleons Salon. Photography by Nina and John Leary of North End Photography completed the perfect package.

The biggest challenge to this event was the creation of a 450 square foot windbreak that ran along the entire back of the hotel car entrance. It not only had to be functional, but it had to meet the requirements of Capital City Events and be great looking as well. In the end, it all worked out and the clients' goal of a grand opening event that reflected the spirit of the hotel was achieved.
