Great little hotel. Will stay here again in Boise. Really like the small size. In my opinion, the interior is nicer than that of the W chain I've also stayed in in other cities. Coffee is served in the bar area in the mornings and was so good, I had to go back for another cup before I hit the... More

We stayed in the king balcony suite for 3 days for our weekend anniversary getaway. The Modern's vibe is minimalist. You will get no cheesy artwork from the local Michael's craft store hanging on the wall. Actually you will get no art. Nothing. Not even a doodle. And that makes it different and at first it feels cool but it... More

Had plenty of choice when booking my night in Boise during my roadtrip around Idaho and Montana. Plenty of hotels that look all the same (Best Western, Marriott etc...) and they cost why too much compared to what they actually offer. Then thanks to Lonely Planet I found The Modern Hotel. An hotel with personality, a lovely minimalistic design, brand... More

We had a very nice stay at the Modern. It is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Boise. The only problem (although this was not any fault of the Modern) was the construction noise in the neighborhood. The roar, grinding, and beeping of construction vehicles at 2 AM was annoying, at best.

We were so pleased with our stay. The room felt luxurious, complimentary breakfast was classy and delicious, and we were able to bring our little dog with us. All of these things make the Modern stand out above the rest. It was so wonderful to have a comfortable, elegant room for our stay in Boise. Oh, and good cocktails too!

After reading such great reviews online I was looking forward to my stay here. When we walked in to check in for our reservation there were two women at the front desk. We were not greeted for at least a couple of minutes and left to stand there waiting. It felt awkward almost as if we were intruding. It didnt... More

This is the 2nd time I've stayed here and love it. The front desk staff is OUTSTANDING! It's located near all the downtown hot spots. And there's plenty of parking. When we go to Boise, this will always be our go-to hotel.

The rooms awesome and comfortable. Spacious bathrooms. The highlight though, is spending time in the restaurant/bar. These people know their food and drink! Truly, the best cocktails in Boise, and the food is phenomenal; not a bad dish on the menu. The staff are knowledgeable and kind.

We had some excellent drinks at the Modern's bar. They make some lively martinis that James Bond would approve of. The food on the menu is creative and delicious. I recommend the mushroom empanada and the cheese plate. Great service and a friendly and attentive waitstaff.

Really excellent Hotel. Superb location right next to Downtown. Staff were really welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable. Food is superb and the relaxed breakfast is a great start to the day. We would certainly stay there again and will recommend it to anyone we know travelling to Boise.
