No one will accuse The Inn at 500 Capitol of being low-rent. Rooms in the six-story, $25 million boutique hotel, under construction Downtown at the corner of Capitol Boulevard and Myrtle Street, will cost $200 a night.

The 110 rooms will include amenities such as fireplaces, walk-in showers and luxury bedding. Don’t want to talk to (or dress for) employees providing room service? They will leave your meal in the personal-butler closet between the hallway and your room.

The developer, Obie Development Partners, led by former Eugene, Ore., Mayor Brian Obie, created a model room, which is open to public tours every Friday. The hotel is being built by Engineered Structures Inc. of Meridian.

Meanwhile, local developer and hotelier Jared Smith’s Pennbridge Capitol is building a 10-story, 180-room Residence Inn by Marriott immediately north of the Obie project on the former Dunkley Music store site, on the southeast corner of Capitol Boulevard and Broad Street, just south of Trader Joe’s.
