Surprised and pleased

Posted 24-Jan-2015
Pros: Beds and bathroom.
Cons: You're doing a great job!
Location: Loved the linen district. Big City Coffee was another great find. We were in town for a concert at the Knitting Factory... an easy walk.
Great experience from check in to departure. The bar and food is over the top with some great mixologists.

Not what we expected

Posted 23-Jan-2015
The modern is anything but, I would describe it as a glorified motel. The room was dated, missing tiles in the shower, no counter space in the bathroom at all. The door to the bathroom is see through and the toilet is right there. The bed was not a pillow top and the blanket on the bed is made from a horrible scratchy wool. The hotel has a restaurant/bar attached which gets busy and if your 21 I could see the attraction. We ended up having most of the patrons of the bar hangout and smoke right in front of our room until about 2am. The staff at the front desk was not welcoming at all and when I was checking out he was preoccupied with the book he was reading on his ipad. Would not stay here again.

Great hotel close to downtown Boise

Posted 15-Jan-2015
Pros: The rooms were very clean and comfortable. It was easy to get a great night's sleep. The restaurant they have on site is fantastic.
Location: It's in a great location if you have business in the downtown area: a 10 minute walk to the convention center and we felt safe walking after dark.
My wife and I stayed at The Modern earlier this week. We really enjoyed our experience and would recommend this hotel. We plan to stay here, again, on our next visit to Boise.The office staff and restaurant staff were friendly and very professional. They made us feel welcome on our first visit to their city.The restaurant they have on site has a fantastic vibe and menu. We enjoyed their Sunday brunch menu, dinner during the week, and their complimentary coffee and bagels. A nice strong cup of coffee to start of your day! Each of the meals we had were tasty, creative, good sized portions and fairly priced. Transportation between the hotel and airport was complimentary and very convenient which saved us money on needing a rental car.

Great Experience

Posted 15-Jan-2015
It was a nice quick stay for a business trip, the bed was comfortable and the room was clean. I really liked the huge shower and the esthetic design of the room & the bathroom.

The staff was very pleasant. The hotel & bar were pleasantly different than the norm.

The Modern Hotel is in a perfect location in Boise. I love the setting and it is very comfortable. Staff is very polite and willing to help in any manner.

It's not located in downtown. There is nothing in walking distance.

Polly at the front desk was very kind and accommodating. She assured that my stay was the best, and set all concerns of my first stay in Boise away. The staff at the Modern are what makes this great hotel over the top.
