Coolest. Hotel. Ever.

Posted 22-Apr-2015
Absolutely loved this place, and would go back to Boise just to stay here. Cool concept, great staff, good location. The dining area / lounge feels like a big living room where everyone is always welcome.

Second time staying

Posted 21-Apr-2015
Once again Modern Hotel did not disappoint. Staff is great, the room was ready on time and clean; and the bar still makes great drinks. My favorite place stay in while visiting Boise.

Wannabe modern

Posted 13-Apr-2015
Pros: Restaurant, the attempted modern look, cleanliness, location.
Cons: Price can be lowered, or the fitness room, pool or other amenities included. At least the free breakfast of sorts.
Location: Location is great, close to downtown. Little less appealing than the "south" (I think) side of downtown.
The hotel was just "fine". If the price was $40/night less, I would say it was good. No free breakfast, no fitness room, no pool, no hot tub, and a lot of money. The modern remodel was fine, but it could have been so much more. The rooms are tiny but that is fine. Very little room for clothes or luggage. It was clean. Pretty noisy. The restaurant was trendy with a nice night scene. Seems like people come for the restaurant more than the hotel.

Fun Boise hotel

Posted 8-Mar-2015
Pros: The hotel has a channel that streams movies from their indie film festival. The decor is a bit quirky/ hipster - an improvement over most hotel rooms.
Cons: The parking lot is a bit tight, but I didn't have a car, so I didn't care.
Stayed only one night. My room was on the first floor, off the highway. I could hear some road noise, but not enough to prevent me from sleeping. My room was comfortable, clean, and in good condition. The Saturday brunch was delicious. I would definitely stay again.

Good location downtown to walk to bars

Posted 2-Feb-2015
The room was satisfactory and clean. In comparison to other hotels downtown this rate is just too high. There was no refrigerator, no small table to sit at, no robes, and the doors bang loudly when closing. The parking is limited so we had to park out on the street. The bar was relaxing and the service was good. It was a good experience but I think the the rate should be lower.

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.

Loved It!

Posted 23-Jan-2015 on Hotels.com
Had a last minute stay in Boise and decided to check out The Modern Hotel. We loved it! Fabulous rainfall shower! Had a few drinks in the bar before closing and met the Bar Crab! The hotel is a little further from downtown in a somewhat iffy area, but we had no issues with noise or people. We would definitely stay again!

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.
