I had business in Boise and stumbled upon the Modern Hotel in my search for a hotel prior to getting to Boise. I was traveling alone and was a bit worried about the safety of the area and security of the hotel--but the minute I arrived all my fears were gone. The Modern has a hipster look to it and is in a very quiet area of downtown. It is less than a 5 mile drive to the airport (which was super easy to navigate) and also close to Boise State and the Capital. Some of the rooms are open to the outside and some open to a hallway. I happened to be in the hallway area but would have felt safe either way. The room had a minimalist look to it and was very clean. The shower was amazing with a raindrop shower head coming from the ceiling and Aveda products to boot! As mentioned on previous reviews the sink design does kind of drain weird but was not a big deal. They offer a complimentary breakfast which was just right--very good granola, yogurt, bagels and delicious fresh squeezed orange juice. I am not a big juice fan and I loved it! I did not have a drink or eat at the bar but it looked great and their outside area complete with rock with fire coming out of them looked like a perfect place to have a drink and relax. It was a great trip to the Modern Hotel and Boise!
