ONTARIO – A Boise-area hotel chain plans to build a five-story Marriot Hotel on Southeast Fifth Avenue and Tiffany Street in east Ontario.

TNB Hotels of Boise will construct a 115-room hotel structure, said managing partner Jay Nijjer.

TNB Hotels also owns the Holiday Inn Express in Ontario along with lodging establishments in Tucson, Arizona; British Columbia; Salt Lake City; Meridian, Idaho; and Bend.

The new hotel will be right across from the new Commercial Tire building.

Nijjer said the hotel will create about 35 local jobs.

The hotel will be a combined Marriot Fairfield and TownePlace Suites.
